More Of That (right) comes to catch Salubrious
Daryl Jacob has revealed that he was 'very impressed' with the performance of More Of That at Cheltenham last week.
Jacob was aboard Salubrious for Paul Nicholls in the four runner Osborne House Relkeel Hurdle at the Gloucestershire track's International meeting and set out to make the race a thorough test aboard the proven stayer.
The progressive six year old soon had French Champion Hurdle winner Gemix and Willie Mullins' 15/8 favourite Glens Melody in trouble only for Jonjo O'Neill's lightly raced five year old to breeze past on the run in to score by over two lengths.
The winner was immediately quoted for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle and is currently a top price 10/1 for the stayers' crown and Jacob told Racing UK that he was very impressed with the performance.
"I think it was a good race and he came by me very, very easily and I was very impressed with him, very impressed," he revealed.
"It was only his fourth run and he's still a big baby; he probably needs to sharpen up on a lot of things but he looks impressive at the moment. He's only a young horse and he'll probably keep hitting the heights, won't he," he added.
