There wasn’t to be a plus £1million in prize money for Philip Hobbs for a fifth time in succession in 2017/18 but with his team “out of sorts” the Minehead trainer still managed the respectable total of 63 winners and £709,992.
Hobbs had also managed to notch over 100 winners per season in the previous four terms and it could be well be after the temporary blip that his now full-health team are well handicapped for the action that beckons in the coming months.
Defi Du Seuil wasn’t able build on a his perfect seven for Hobbs during his juvenile campaign, which included victory in the Grade 1 JCB Triumph Hurdle and Grade 1 Doom Bar Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle but he could well be the ace in his pack once more with business returned to normal this time around.
Philip will be waiting for ground conditions to improve before unleashing several of his big guns and kindly spoke to Tony Elves of attheraces.com about his prospects for the season ahead.
