Winter glee for Henderson

Winter glee for Henderson

Nicky Henderson continued his spectacular afternoon as Une Artiste gave him his fourth winner in the Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham.

The master of Seven Barrows had already claimed Grade One prizes with Champion Chase hero Finian’s Rainbow, RSA scorer Bobs Worth and Neptune winner Simonsig.

This victory was at a lesser level, and at a far bigger price, as she was sent off at 40-1 in the hands of Jeremiah McGrath.

Kazlian looked to have stolen a march on his rivals when kicking clear down the hill, but he was a spent force approaching the final flight.

Une Artiste came with a strong run and kicked on up the hill to beat Edeymi by a length and three-quarters.

Favourite Vendor ran an amazing race to finish third, with his rider Robert Thornton hard at work from the halfway stage.

Kazlian passed the post fourth.
