Cheltenham Festival 2021
Royal Ascot runner-up Tritonic bids to earn himself a ticket to the Cheltenham Festival with victory in the Close Brothers Adonis Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton on Saturday.
Willie Mullins has confirmed Kemboy is likely to join stablemate Al Boum Photo in next month’s WellChild Cheltenham Gold Cup.
Nicky Henderson has raised the possibility of Altior being fitted with headgear for the first time to aid his bid for a third victory in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham.
A 28/1 plus double for Gordon Elliott at Thurles was completed in the featured Grade Three Markaye Contracts Ltd Michael Purcell Memorial Novice Hurdle by Grand Paradis.
Nicky Henderson is glad his “ridiculous” idea of running Champ over two miles as a prep for the WellChild Cheltenham Gold Cup did not leave him with egg on his face.
