Alice Avril is a four year old filly by the excellent French National Hunt sire Balko. Quite simply, she has an exceptional pedigree, being a half-sister to two Grade 1 performers; Tolworth Hurdle runner-up Grand Sancy, and recent Future Champions Novice third Keskonrisk.
She has run five times in France and was a ready winner at Pau in January. She has been purchased to join Henry de Bromhead and will start out for us next season.

Having started training at the turn of the millennium, Henry rapidly established himself as a leading force in the National Hunt ranks in Ireland and two decades on, the list of races that have gone the way of the County Waterford-based handler is hugely impressive.
A record-breaking Cheltenham Festival, during which Henry had six winners that included the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase and Gold Cup, was swiftly followed by a famous 1-2 in the Grand National, providing further evidence of a yard that continues at the very top of its game.
We couldn't be more excited to have seven horses in training (Alice Avril, Baron Wild, Coole Arcade, Cottie, Makfils, Schone Aussicht and our unnamed Sageburg filly) with Henry for 2021/22.
