Forgotten horse returns
Nicky Henderson has an interesting runner at Bangor on Tuesday evening in the shape of 2009 Royal Hunt Cup winner Forgotten Voice.
Formerly trained on the level by Jeremy Noseda, the Paul and Susan Roy-owned gelding is now a seven-year-old and has not been seen for 728 days due to leg trouble.
Forgotten Voice, who finished fourth in the 2009 Sussex Stakes, runs over timber for the first time in the Brooke Rankin Accountants Novices' Hurdle and will be ridden by Tony McCoy.
"He's been here about three months. He's had leg trouble and has been off for over two years," said Henderson.
"He's a lovely big horse and I've had a couple that have come off the Flat for the owners.
"He really enjoys it and although he's getting on a bit now, he goes very well at home.
"I suppose he should do given he is working with proper National Hunt horses and he's a Royal Hunt Cup winner.
"We'll see how he takes to it - given his age you'd think he'd stay further these days.
"If he stays, and he should do at Bangor, who knows how good he could be."
