the £35,000 LISTED prelude handicap hurdle

The £35,000 Listed Ferry Ales Brewery Prelude Hurdle will be run for the 13th time at Market Rasen Racecourse on Saturday, 28th September, one of two feature races on the annual Ferry Ales Brewery Prelude Raceday.

First run in 2007, the contest was awarded Listed status four years later. It is always a wide open and competitively contested affair over the extended two-mile trip.

No horse or jockey has won the race more than once but, among the trainers, Dr Richard Newland has achieved that feat, sending out Ahyaknowyerself and Hassle to win in 2013 and 2016 respectively.

Punters have had a tricky time finding the winner. No favourite has finished better than second – that was 12 months ago – and three of the successful horses have been 20-1 long shots. The average starting price has been in excess of 11-1 during the 12 races to date.

While Exitas was successful under the minimum weight of 10 stone in 2014 under jockey Conor Shoemark, two top weights have also defied their burdens to claim victories – Katies Tuitor for rider Noel Fehily in 2008 and Lincolnshire-trained Local Hero four years later. The latter, from the yard of Steve Gollings, has the distinction of being the shortest-priced winner at 9-2.

In the latest renewal, the valuable prize money headed north to Cumbria and the yard of Nicky Richards, for its was third time lucky at Lincolnshire’s only racecourse for Caius Marcius. Having finished mid-division in the contest in 2017 on his second trip to Market Rasen, the 12-1 chance put up an impressive performance under northern jockey Brian Hughes to capture the prize by 11 lengths.

So, who will emerge victorious as the Ferry Ales Brewery Prelude Hurdle reaches a baker’s dozen? It’s certain to be a hot race once again, with a good field of runners, and it’s likely once again to be a tricky puzzle for punters to solve.
