What was Keith’s Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle Tip for 2020?

Here is what Keith wrote about the 2020 Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle.

Twenty seven races in the bag, and it could come down to this final event to decide who is the festival champion trainer, although I expect Willie Mullins will have it sewn up by then.

While Mullins will likely have a runner or two in the race (BLACKBOW is one possible), the horse I am looking forward to lining up on the day is trained by his chief rival.

Gordon Elliott’s COLUMN OF FIRE has a nice progressive profile, having won his maiden at Punchestown in January with some authority, he went on to Leopardstown and finished second on his handicap debut.

My selection for the Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle 2020 is: COLUMN OF FIRE 9/1 each way (NRNB).

On the day, we ended the festival with a hard luck story when COLUMN OF FIRE who was being ridden to challenge fell at the last in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle
