EPATANTE reigns supreme in the 2022 Aintree Hurdle – Racing TV

Racing TV published this video item, entitled “EPATANTE reigns supreme in the 2022 Aintree Hurdle – Racing TV” – below is their description.

Nicky Henderson’s mare was a good second to Honeysuckle at Cheltenham but she returns to winning ways with a dominant display at Aintree.

The victory brought to an end an almost perfect season for Epatante, who had been right back to her best, dead-heating in the Fighting Fifth, winning the Christmas Hurdle and finishing second to Honeysuckle in the Champion Hurdle.

Epatante has been first, third and second in the last three Champion Hurdles and is still only eight, and having proved her stamina for two and a half miles now, she has opened up further options.

The five-year-old Monmiral came from the back to claim second, but he was beaten 14 lengths.

Nicky Henderson said: “She’s right back to her best. That’s the first time she has ever been two and a half miles and the worry was would she get it? She’s won all sorts of Group Ones over two miles and we asked her to go that bit further and she got it standing on her head!”
