Novice Chaser Looks Like a Bargain Bet for Cheltenham Festival

Promising Performance at Cheltenham

Cheltenham Festival got off to an exciting start last weekend, and one horse that stood out was the impressive Encanto Bruno. With an eye on the Coral Cup in March, trainer Gavin Cromwell has high hopes for this novice chaser.

Unexposed Stayer Could Surprise at the Festival

Another horse to watch out for is IROKO. This Festival hero is relatively unexposed as a stayer and could be a dark horse in the upcoming races. At 20-1, it's definitely worth considering an each-way bet.

Annoying Incident at Aintree

In other news, the recent Old Roan Chase at Aintree left many racing enthusiasts frustrated. The race was essentially run like a flat race, with only eight fences instead of the usual 14. The omission of the last three fences in the home straight made for an unsatisfactory contest.

Option to Move Feature Races

It's clear that tracks need the flexibility to move feature races in order to avoid disappointing events like the Old Roan Chase at Aintree. This would ensure that both fans and bettors get the exciting races they deserve.

Previous Festival Experience Gives Horses an Edge

When it comes to the Brown Advisory, it seems that horses with previous Festival experience have the upper hand. So keep an eye out for those who have performed well in the past.
