Ruby Walsh Predicts Defeat for Best Jumps Horse in the World and Issues a Warning

, Ruby Walsh Predicts Defeat for Best Jumps Horse in the World and Issues a Warning

Renowned jockey Ruby Walsh has made a bold prediction about Constitution Hill, stating that "something will chin you."

The Vulnerability of the Best Jumps Horse

According to Walsh, the best jumps horse in the world is not as invincible as many believe.

Walsh believes that Constitution Hill may face defeat, and it could happen as early as this season.

Walsh's Controversial Remarks

In an interview with Betfair, Walsh spoke candidly about Constitution Hill's most recent race, describing it as his worst performance yet.

Trainer Nicky Henderson has confirmed that the superstar horse, owned by Michael Buckley, will continue to compete in hurdles this season.

While some fans were disappointed by this decision, hoping to see Constitution Hill take on new challenges, Walsh believes that another horse may rise to the occasion and dethrone the undefeated champion.

A Potential Challenger

Walsh, who is closely associated with trainer Willie Mullins, suggests that Ballymore king Impaire Et Passe could pose a serious threat to Constitution Hill this season.

He points to Impaire Et Passe's recent performance as evidence that the reigning champion is more vulnerable than ever.

Constitution Hill's Vulnerability

Reflecting on Constitution Hill's race at Aintree, Walsh admitted that he saw flaws in the horse's performance.

He considered it to be a step down from his previous runs in the Champion Hurdle, Fighting Fifth, and Christmas Hurdle.

Walsh speculated that the two-and-a-half-mile distance at Aintree may have hindered Constitution Hill's performance and prevented him from transitioning to chasing.

For the first time, Walsh expressed doubt about Constitution Hill's invincibility, stating, "something will chin you someday – you're not unbeatable."

He believes that if Constitution Hill maintains his current form and faces formidable opponents such as State Man, Impaire Et Passe, or even a prime Honeysuckle, defeat is inevitable.
