More big bucks
Saturday; Cheltenham: Cleeve Hurdle (Grade 2) 3m
Big Bucks (Cadoudal - Bucks by Le Glorieux)
CADOUDAL, a leading jumps sire in France who is best known in this country as thesire of the likes of Fadalko, Lacdoudal, Korelo and Kadou Nonantais, looks to have another big performer to his credit courtesy of Big Bucks, who dampened some big reputations with a four length victory in the Cleeve Hurdle.
The six-year-old Big Bucks is out of Bucks, a winning sister to the Listed Prix Journaliste Steeplechase Buck's Dream and Listed Prix Roger de Minvielle Steeplechase runner-up Buck's Glory.
As well as Big Buck's, Bucks has produced four other winners over jumps for owner, Henri Poulat, including the highly promising four-year-old French hurdler Buck's Boum, a brother to Big Buck's who ran second in last season's Racing Post Prix Cambaceres at Auteuil.
Bucks has a two-year-old colt by Turgeon named Buck's Business.
