Trainer Paul Nicholls to win valuable Prix La Barka with Welsh Champion Hurdler Silsol

The Welsh Champion Hurdle winner Silsol looks well placed to win the Prix La Barka at Auteuil (2.08) this afternoon in conditions that he will relish. ¬†Silsol will not be the only British raider with David Pipe’s Ballynagour and the Irish challenger Gitane Du Berlais making the journey across the channel.

The testing conditions and two mile five furlongs look right up Silsol’s street and with Sam Twiston-Davies booked expect a big run from the Nicholls horse.
