Sternrubin Shows Heart Of A Lion

Sternrubin put in a fantastic front-running performance to win the William Hill Handicap Hurdle at Ascot. The Philip Hobbs-trained winner is now 16-1 from 25-1 for the Greatwood Hurdle with William Hill.


“Sternrubin has the heart of a lion and the others could not peg him back. He finished third in the County Hurdle in March, so perhaps a trip back to Cheltenham could be on the cards,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


The Greatwood Hurdle takes place at Cheltenham on 13th November.
