This Saturday will see some top-level horse racing at Sandown in the shape of the Unibet Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle (2.25 Saturday).
Paul Nicholls will be looking to secure more top-level success in the race with Tahmuras. Twelve months ago he was chased down by the magnificent Consitution Hill, but comes here off the back of three straight wins.
Nicholls said, “It’s a Grade 1 and it looks like it will be a good race. He’s unbeaten this season and his form is good and solid, while he’ll love the testing ground. We’re looking forward to him.”
Tahmuras is will likely face a tough challenge in the promising Authorised Speed who has also entered. Luccia, of Nicky Henderson, will also be looking to land the prize.
Arctic Bresil is one who could represent Henry de Bromhead in the race to land the £70,000 spoils.

The going at Sandown was described as soft over hurdles and soft, good to soft in places on Monday, but those conditions could become more testing with much rain forecast this week.
