Nicky Henderson was knocked off his perch as champion jumps trainer by Paul Nicholls when bidding to complete a hat-trick at the top of the pile in 2018/19 but just like the luckless Buveur D’Air in the Champion hurdle, the Seven Barrows trainer will be back in the thick of action to try and regain that crown.
Henderson’s prize money tally of £2,909,080 last season left him just short of passing the £3 million barrier which had been passed in his last Championship winning season with an identical 141 winners and such is strength of his team this time around that few would be against him bettering his personal best.
Altior once again holds the position as star flagbearer for the Seven Barrows outfit with the likes of Santini, Buveur D’Air, and the emerging young hurdlers like Champ, Pentland Hills, Fusil Raffles and Verdana Blue, to name but a few, there is the ammunition in the yard to once again ensure the battle for the trainers’ title goes to the wire again.
With a host of younger horses too, Nicky kindly spoke to Tony Elves about a team that will surely light up the season for Jumps enthusiasts.
