With so many choices and still some time left before the 2012 Cheltenham Festival begins, trainer Nicky Henderson has already advised that the chances of Oscar Whisky running in the 2012 World Hurdle are only about 60-40.
It appears that there are more factors to consider than initially thought and although Oscar Whisky is more likely to run in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle than the Stan James Champion Hurdle, according to owner Dai Walters, connections are going to wait and see what happens when he runs in the Welsh Champion Hurdle on Saturday before making any decisions.
Walters said : “We’ll see what happens when Oscar runs in the Welsh Champion Hurdle. If he breaks all records there, who knows?
“But as things stand it’s 60-40 that he’ll take on Big Buck’s. I hope he has a proper test at Ffos Las.”
