David Pipe's ----MASTER?

Anthony CurrieContributor IFebruary 4, 2009

  • Has David Pipe found his master for the Triumph/Sun Alliance at Cheltenham? MASTER OF ARTS(USA)-4.b.g.Swain(IRE)134-Grazia 111(Sharpo 132)110,000Y closely related to HALLING. Won seven races straight on the sand/poly-track. Trained by Sir Mark Prescott and sold to David Pipe for 310,000 Guineas.
  • Won a Novice Hurdle at Don caster easily as a four year old carrying 147lbs. Is still improving and enters calculations. Is reported to be exceptional at home. A look of a Group Flat horse. Has also been entered in the Lincoln at Doncaster on the Flat. Current odds of 14/1 if a runner. Loves soft ground and should be also potent on better. 
  • Has the look of a High class Hurdler with a tremendous turn of foot and a high cruising speed, quickening over the last and winning with his head in his chest, after jumping the last at Don Caster. Sure to improve and is reportedly improving quickly at home.
  • Has a rating of 110p and who knows what his jump rating would be in the future. David doesn't buy rubbish and a close eye should be kept on this entire. David has reported saying that he would speak to the owners about one more run  before Cheltenham. Your guess is as good as mine as to what he intends to prove?
