Shark Hanlon’s Galway hero HEWICK ⭐️ rises to 163 - that’s higher than Frodon, on par with Royale Pagaille & just 1lbs shy of Protektorat.— Jane Mangan (@jane_mangan) August 4, 2022
He’s into Gold Cup territory heading to Listowel’s Kerry National.
What €850 can buy, racing cannot afford to miss - the dream horse!
Hewick, who was purchased for a cheap €850, will target a Gold Cup win next March alongside owner TJ McDonald and trainer Hanlon.
The 7-year-old now has a higher rating than Frodon and level with Royale Pagaille.
