Baby Mix wins at Cheltenham

Tom George's French import Baby Mix (14/1) was a very impressive winner of the JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham on Saturday.

The grey was always travelling well under Paddy Brennan and took the lead from hot-favourite Hinterland just before the final hurdle.

Another fluent leap at the last sealed matters and he bounded up the hill for a comfortable seven-length success.

Hinterland plugged on at one pace for second.

George said afterwards: "His work's been very good at home. His jumping at home was good and we've actually been jumping him over fences.

"He's surprised us a bit and we're really lucky to have a horse like him in the yard. He's done it nicely."

Stan James and William Hill go 10/1 about the winner for the JCB Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March, while Victor Chandler were very impressed and go 6s.
