"Beginning with the biggest of all constitutional. Thank you very much. Good to talk to you. And great to talk to you as well. An incredibly exciting time for us as fans as we build up to cheltenham, but you are going to be on board the horse that everybody is talking about in constitution hill and your boss Nikki had his media day yesterday at 7 boroughs, so we got to hear a little bit of the latest on some of the stars. Let's start with the biggest gun of all constitutional. How is this preparation been going and how excited are you to partner in the big race? So far so good with him. With all that water at the moment, we're just there. Slowly bringing them to the boil as it were. They've all gone through their prep races really well. And yeah, it's just an exciting time of year to be in the yard like 7 barrels. I have to hold my hands up and admit that I got this fellow badly wrong. I wasn't entirely certain about his supreme win last year I thought that they'd gone off way too fast in front. And perhaps it was just a pace collapse and he was flattered and yet he's come out and open company and destroyed the reigning entry hurdle in her epitaph, not once, but twice. In fact, every time you set foot in a race course, he is won by at least 12 links. Time form ranked his fighting 5th win as the third best two mile performance ever from the hurdler. And after his victory in the Christmas hurdle, David cleary wrote that he might very well be the best two mile the tongue form have ever seen in their history. That's high praise, but it's not hyperbole because what he's doing is extraordinary. When you're riding him in these great ones, how does it feel? He is honestly the most straightforward horse you could ever deal with. He's got it all really. And I think the biggest asset will attribute to him is that his mind is so he's so professional and he's so big mom and he's got a very good brain on him. He's very intelligent. And you know, as a rider, it makes it very, very easy to ride him and it's a pleasure every time you ride him. You've ridden some incredible resources like sprinter Sakura towards the latter days of his career. Out who was one of the greats. How does he compare it to the brilliant horses that you've written before? I never really liked to compare these amazing authors because they've all got their fantastic way of going about things in their own right. But look, he's bang up there. You know, I've never really been on such a high class hurdler. All the amazing I've ever been to the good chasers and it's just fantastic to be able to go into a race like the champion hurdle with a really good live chat. And we've seen statements strut his stuff, he's got three grid ones to his CV this season, and he's clearly going to be a very good opponent for you in the champion. And yet even when you hear Willie Mullins at his press day, they're excited about running him. They're looking forward to what he can do. But the apprehensive because waiting in waiting down at the start for him will be this monster of a race horse. It's not a fluke. What he's doing, what he's doing is extraordinary. How confident are you ahead of the big race? Anything can happen in a two mile championship race and obviously statement has come through all his runs and he's very impressive last time out. So I think that you can ever take anything for granted and you have to respect all your opposition. So I think one of the biggest changes is that honeysuckle hasn't said maybe her form slightly dipped and we're not going to get there the clash that was sort of built up at the end of the last season. But in statement, we've got to truly good rival and hopefully it should kick off the two feet and get the festival really underway. How do you feel about that the defending champion is not going to take you on? She's going to go for a somewhat lesser race. She's been a fantastic man, honeysuckle. And you have to respect everything she's done. But her connections are obviously looking after her and her well-being for the main thing. And I guess they want to go out with a live chance of going to the festival and going out with a win. So that honeysuckle is a legend in their own right and but it's just a shame that she won't be lining up with us. Yeah, there won't be a dry eye in the house if she wins the mayor's hurdle, but there won't be much of a voice left if constitutional is one of the champion before that, because you'll tear the roof off the place. He's incredibly incredibly exciting. And I will never doubt him again, Nico never again. And on the theme of not doubting Nikki Henderson horses, Lucia came out for you on Sunday. She'd been off the track since her win at the start of the season. She was wildly impressive, a little bit of a mistake at the last, not a little big mistake at the last, but aside from that, she was fantastic so much so that there might even be the talk of the supreme novice hurdle. Which way would you go? Mayor's novice or supreme. It's not really for me to say, I've obviously got my own opinion, which I'm keeping fairly under wraps, but she's got an incredible engine and it doesn't really matter what ground she runs on. She won her that listed bumper at sandown last year in hot deep ground and then she went on good ground extra on Sunday. As for the mistake at the last 1600 students that day and I think they are making quite a racket since she was on her own. So I think she just took her eye off the ball slightly. But apart from that, I think she's a really exciting novice and wherever she goes she goes with a live chant. I think Nikki mice have let your opinion on this horse out of the bag on racing TV because the reporter was asking, could the supreme be a target? And Nikki went, that's what my jockey just said. Wow, there you go, you've got me. But anyway, no, it's nice to have options and it's worth just seeing how these races will cut up closer to the time. Would there be a preference of new course versus old course in your mind? No, I don't think it really matters. I think she's got a really good engine. And I think whichever course you run on, you know, and she stays as well. She did it stand down. And she did up the hill extra. So I don't think it really matters whether it's old or new. See, I thought I might get you to let it slip there, but no, not a bit of it. I'm very good at sitting on the fence. I have to say. Box and clever. That's what you're doing. Your boxing clever. If Lucia is as good as we think, then she may very well be a leading contender for the champion or the mayor's article next season, then you've already got a number of horses lined up for that. Marie's rock the defending champion. Who Aiden will probably ride and theater glory is thrown her head into the ring as well. On Marie's rock, the defending champion was terrific in the Rachel hurdle. Maybe so good that she might actually go for the stairs now.

"John Bond fans, if you're bridge jumping with Jon Bon for the article, then you're going to be keeping a very close eye on this to see her mom morale gets on. And can he Frankie's form? And he might very well. He was a much better hurdler than thunder rock was. But thunder rock is a mark of one 50 monorail one 48. And I thought that dismissal of solo was really impressive at ascot last time. He did that so easily. He's a very talented novice. And you'll be 7 by the time the race rolls around. I would happily take on mon morale with him. I think 5 to two, 9 to four best players. 94 is fair. I think it's very, very fair. So we're both in the same going for the same horse. Are we going to be going for the same one more so in the feature event of the day that we can decap chase? Is this the feature event or is the Rachel the future? In terms of prize money, it would be this race, wouldn't it? The real keels are a cracker as well, isn't it? Oh, it's a proper race. It's a proper race. But yeah, this is the feature. This is a good race as well, though. We shouldn't do this race down. That's superb hand again. I'm certainly not. And we've this is one of the advantages of not reaching for all that I criticized them, the BHA not saving the December race. The December gold cup. Here's the advantage. You get a lot of the players who are not race like stolen silver and el rotato lining up here. And they'll redo second run after a wind up is favorite. The old favorite Mark Milligan angle, he's the 11 to two favorite, along with midnight river for the skeletons to the same price, stolen silver, 17 to two braces for Phoenicia and Charlie deutsch 9th shot a little bit on the drift, warlord, who was battered by green tea in the halting gulf cup and was fancy to win that race that they an 11th shot and the old slow coach daeron de Serac. Hey, it's not your fault. The people keep putting you up and you keep getting beaten. But 18s about him, right? Who do you like in the feature race for New Year's Day at cheltenham? Yeah, I was keen on midnight river from Dan skelton yard. I thought he ran an absolute cracker in the paddy power gold cup in November. And I think you can put an even better spin on that performance for two reasons. The two horses that beat him, galar and French dynamite were written more prominently than he was in a race that didn't unfold at a particularly strong pace. I would say it was just a sound pace, nothing more than that. Andy did go around the houses a bit there as well. He covered more ground than those two and still ran an absolute cauca to finish third for me that was a room that suggests midnight river is more than capable of winning one of these big handicaps and for all that this is a really deep race. I think a repeat of the form he showed in that paddy power girl cook would be good enough to win this. I'm with his rival from the open meeting. It'll risotto. I completely get it with midnight river. I get it totally. But elder daughter threw in a howler at the last, which would have cost him I probably cost him third. And he needs to knock that crap out of his racing. If he makes a mistake like that again, then it's game over, forget about it. But I really fancied him for that December gold cup. And I fancied him to step forward, big time. Kind of profile the Paul Nichols has for that race. Is to prep at November and then win in December. And I thought he was going to come in with a massive chance and I'm still with them. I'm still with them. I think he's got a major chance. I'm keeping the faith with him. Midnight river can absolutely beat him. And he needs to cut out the mistakes, but if he gets a clear round ahead, which I think he's capable of, then that 11 to two is going to look big. And it's a race of political system willing over the years. The Rachel. The Raquel hurdle, right, Marie's rock. 5 to two favorite as we record with betta. In fact, 11 to four, the price has been updated. I like to move it. They're all going up in distance for fear of constitution hill to mount hurdlers. Now let's try and make them into two and a half mile hurdlers. Let's try and make them into stairs, hurdle candidates. So I like to move it force first street for constitutional trainer Nicky Henderson is a 5 shot napper's hill is the same price 5s, and then it's 9 to one bar. Who really takes your eye in the Rachel hurdle? Well, I'll tell you who doesn't have the prices, Marie's rock. Thank you. I think thank you. This is much deeper than the opposition that she has been beating. She has next to nothing in hand of a quite a few of these on both official gratings and time form ratings and quite surprised to see her put up his favorite to be perfectly honest and the fact she's giving up recency to everything in the field isn't she. She's having to come off a 240 6 day layoff, which shouldn't be an issue given who she's trained by. But you're asking her to come off a long way off against the best opposition that she's ever faced. And she needs to improve to win the race. So I wasn't interested in her a shortish price at all. I used to move it, especially in open company. Yeah. I like to move it should be favorite in here. I thought that great would performance was a superb performance, I don't think he will have any trouble at all stepping up in trip. I think he sets a very clear standard on that great wood form. He should be favorite very, very keen on him. I'm very keen on horse as well. First street I think is very interesting. One of the jury fielding. Which is the race took en route to champion art of victory and he did that off top weight.
