i often wonder why more of our national hunt horses, irish and british, don’t run more often in France as the prize money is so good.

Take mid dancer for example, 5yo and 16 races have seen him win nearly £500’000. I know its difficult to compare, with the oppurtunites afforded 3 and 4yos in france, but if you will we have monets garden over here who is 8yo, 2 and 1/2 lengths better (over Carlisles fences anyway) with 15 races under his belt and only £170’000 prize money. Over simplified i know but surely this shows there’s many a valuable oppurtunity over there.
