Worlds End enters Cheltenham equation after Haydock triumph

Sat 18 Feb 2017

The Worlds End (11-4) booked his ticket for Cheltenham with a clear-cut win in the Albert Bartlett Prestige Novices' Hurdle at Haydock.

Winner of his last two races, Tom George's six-year-old looked a cut above his rivals, sweeping through the field and jumping big in the straight.

Adrian Heskin pushed him out for a nine-length win over No Hassle Hoff and he is now 16-1 from 33s for the Albert Bartlett in March with Betfred.

"He's improved for stepping up in trip, like we thought he would - it helps his jumping," said George.

"He's really got the hang of it now and he warrants a run in the Albert Bartlett.

"I can't wait till he jumps fences next season."

Owner Max McNeil added: "Tom and Adrian are a great team and he's a very exciting horse.

"Whether Keeper Hill runs in the Neptune I'm not sure, but this lad will definitely go (to Cheltenham)."
