Jeriko Du Reponet Impresses on Newbury Gallops
The highly anticipated hurdling debut of one of Nicky Henderson's potential stars is just around the corner. Owned by JP McManus, Jeriko Du Reponet showed his potential as he burned up the gallops at Newbury last week.
A New Weapon in Henderson's Arsenal
Trainer Nicky Henderson seems to have another talented horse on his hands. Jeriko Du Reponet left the highly rated Dusart in his dust during a morning gallop, sparking excitement among punters who are eagerly awaiting his hurdling debut.
Supreme Novices' Hurdle Contender
Jeriko Du Reponet is already priced at 16-1 for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. If he performs well this weekend, his odds could significantly shorten. With two entries at Newbury, Henderson and connections are carefully considering their options.
Potential Friday Engagement
The first entry for Jeriko Du Reponet is on Friday, over a 2-mile distance. Given the high hopes for his future, it is likely that he will take up this engagement. Henderson has spoken highly of the horse, describing him as "gorgeous" and "a bit special."
Aiming for Supreme Success
There is speculation that Jeriko Du Reponet could be aimed at the Supreme Novices' Hurdle, a race that Henderson has had success in over the years. The stable has won three of the last eight runnings, with horses such as Altior, Shishkin, and Constitution Hill.
