J.P. MCMANUS’ acquisition of Fakir D’Oudairies and Konitho, as well as exciting bumper horse Blue Sari, only serves to add further strength to a seriously strong team of juvenile hurdlers.

The owner now has the Cheltenham Triumph Trial Hurdle one-two, Fakir D’Oudairies and Fine Brunello, as well as the Spring Juvenile Hurdle one-two, Sir Erec and Gardens Of Babylon, and a really impressive maiden winner in Konitho. All five juveniles are trained by Joseph O’Brien.
