Hydroplane bounces back with surprise Unibet Casino Deposit £10 Get £40 Handicap Hurdle.
Hydroplane bounced back to form to spring a 25-1 surprise in the Unibet Casino Deposit £10 Get £40 Handicap Hurdle.
Pulled up at Doncaster in November on his first start for 204 days, the Ian Williams-trained six-year-old ploughed through the mud to land the prize by half a length from Zambezi Fix in the hands of Tom Scudamore.
“That was great as we were worried about how he would handle the ground. He answered his critics there,” said the jockey.
“He’s a good horse on the Flat. I don’t know what happened last time. This was the first time I’ve sat on him. He’s run some good races on the Flat and is rated 79.
“He jumped so well and is so tough. He needed to be tough today.”
