Brian Hughes: It’s great to be riding Panic Attack at Cheltenham

VBET ambassador Brian Hughes heads to the Cheltenham Festival on Wednesday for the plum ride aboard Panic Attack in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper.

The four-year-old filly is a leading contender with VBET after having won a Listed race on her debut at Market Rasen in January.

She has since switched from the yard of Willie Mullins and into the care of Pond House maestro David Pipe.

5.30 Cheltenham – Panic Attack

“I’m really looking forward to riding Panic Attack in the Champion Bumper on Wednesday.

“It’s always nice to ride at the Festival, and even more exciting to ride a horse with decent claims.

“I was impressed with her at Market Rasen on her debut in January when she easily won a Listed soft-ground bumper.

“Whether or not the form amounts to much, only time will tell, but you can do no more than win by 10 lengths.


“She’s clearly an interesting horse and, as a four-year-old filly, she gets a lot of weight from the rest of the field, which is obviously a big help.

“I’ve only ridden for David once before – I think it was at Hexham – so it’s great to link up with him again for the ride on Panic Attack.

“It’s obviously a seriously competitive race – as it is every year – but I’m delighted to be riding her and let’s hope she can go well.”
