MERCIAN KING didn’t like Cholet


On April 9th on the racecourse of Cholet, MERCIAN KING finished 5th over hurdles, ridden by Wilfrid Denuault.
Well placed all around, he jumped well but at the entrance of the bend, when everyone started he was short of speed. He came back to finish but by then the other ones were quite far ahead.
The racecourse of Cholet has a good reputation which is justified for its flat tracks and for its racing conditions, but the hurdles are quite old and have not been changed for about twenty years.
