Recent Kempton winner Galsworthy has been declared to run in a maiden hurdle at Worcester on Thursday, as the gelding continues his venture into the National Hunt world.

The four-year-old thundered home to a four-length success on the all-weather at Kempton last June, landing a 1m4f maiden.

Previously hailing from John & Thady Gosden’s yard, the son of Dansili joined Adrian Nicholls’ stable in the winter.

After only making one start, he was recruited by Dr Richard Newland and switched from the flat to tackle hurdles.

Galsworthy made his National Hunt debut three weeks ago at Worcester, producing a respectable performance in a two-mile maiden hurdle.

The gelding finished third behind two decent sorts at the Worcestershire track, hinting that he could well have more to offer.

He returns over C&D on Thursday and his experience could well benefit him, as well as facing several rivals that he got the better of last time out.

It would not be a huge surprise if the four-year-old went off as favourite for this contest, with his trainer holding a 24% career strike rate at the course.

Galsworthy should show some progress here and could be one to watch over hurdles in the coming months.
