Past Winners » Oh Crick


Odds of 14/1 about Oh Crick are also value. A progressive novice hurdler last year, it has taken him a little while to reach the same level over fences, but his latest run, when he was second to Soixante at Hereford last month on ground that was too soft, was most encouraging, and his rating of 129 is more than fair. If Andreas runs, he will be just 1lb out of the handicap, with 10st dead on his back, and that is ideal. He is 12lb better off with Poquelin for a five-length beating over the course and distance back in October. He is only six years old, novices have a good record in the Grand Annual, and Oh Crick is a winner at Cheltenham over hurdles. He is value at 12/1.
