Game Of Patterns – Day 556

Carnage again. My selection, Mr Witmore, finished 5th. Was not a good run, chased leaders, outpaced and lost place 12th, modest 5th approaching 2 out, plugged on run-un. But, that is less important.

Eight-times Grade One winner Nichols Canyon suffered a fatal injury when falling at the fifth flight in the Squared Financial Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown. It was hard to watch.

He won 12 of his 20 career starts and earned over £700,000 in prizes. His greatest triumph was beating his stablemate Faugheen in the 2015 Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown.
