The Lexicon Recruitment National Hunt Maiden Hurdle 2020
The Lexicon Recruitment National Hunt Maiden Hurdle 2020 was won by Danny Kirwan , ridden by Harry Cobden – congratulations to both Harry and trainer Paul Nicholls.
Due to Covid19 this year’s race was a more subdued affair, with a smaller field and no spectators, however it still saw talented juvenile maidens compete for a generous prize fund.
We had hoped to see Henry Gondoff, trained by the legendary Jonjo O’Neil and part of the “The Sting Partnership”, represent Lexicon Recruitment in this race. Unfortunately, he is recovering from a minor setback, but all concerned look forward to seeing him back on the course very soon.
Last year saw a competitive affair with several of the bigger stables taking part. Igor, trained by Nicky Henderson, fought off Papa Tango Charley in an exciting finish.
