Dunguib put himself firmly back in the already thrilling Champion Hurdle picture with his win in the Gowran Park Red Mills Trial Hurdle. It was a very promising victory for the 8-11 favourite who had been on the sidelines with an infection that caused him to miss his last two intended targets. There has been a definite improvement in Dunguibs jumping since last season and when he and second place Luska Lad really got racing it was great to see him put in some very polished jumps over the last three hurdles. Ladbrokes remain unchanged at offering 14/1 about Dunguib for the Champion Hurdle. Coral cut his price from 20’s into 14’s and Paddy Power now go 10/1.
