Snap Tie: ran Harchibald close in the Christmas Hurdle at KemptonPICTURE: Edward Whitaker
Snap Tie among classy Haydock trial entry
SNAP TIE, who lowered the colours of Katchit at Kempton on his first start of the season and ran Harchibald close in the Christmas Hurdle, is one of ten entries for Haydock's Blue Square Champion Hurdle Trial on Saturday.
The Nicky Henderson-trained Afsoun, winner of the race in 2007, will be looking for a confidence boost after taking two falls in a row, first over fences and then in the Christmas Hurdle last time.
Howard Johnson could run Arcalis, Degas Art and Scriptwriter, while Malcolm Jefferson has handed his progressive mare Issaquah an entry.
European Dream, Marcel, Prize Fighter and Songe are the other possibles.
