The Cheltenham Festival novice hurdles are the breeding ground for future talent and this Cheltenham Festival Novice Hurdle Acca picks the best of them.
Cheltenham Festival Novice Hurdle Acca: 1. Grand Sancy
We get our Cheltenham Festival Novice Hurdle Acca under way in the very first race of the festival.
The Supreme Novice Hurdle is a real test for young hurdling speedsters, and we think we’ve found the winner.
Grand Sancy is a five-year-old son of Diamond Boy. He is also trained by a master in Paul Paul Nicholls. He knows how to train the winner of this race and has brought Grand Sancy along nicely.
This one has been steadily improving all season and was just touched off in the Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle.
He won a Grade 2 in open company at Wincanton and the drop back to novice company here can see this battle-hardened speedster triumph here.
Cheltenham Festival Novice Hurdle Acca: 2. Champ
The second leg of our Cheltenham Festival Novice Hurdle Acca goes in the first race on Day 2, the Ballymore Novice Hurdle.
Champ is the horse named in honour of former champion jockey AP McCoy.
He is a seven-year-old son of King’s Theatre owned by JP McManus and trained by Nicky Henderson.
Unbeaten this season, Champ won a handicap at Newbury very well in December.
However, he really showed his star power when stepping up to land the Grade 1 Challow Hurdle at the same track in January.
Highly rated, we fancy this one can land this race before going on to big things.
Cheltenham Festival Novice Hurdle Acca: 3. Birchdale
We wrap up our Cheltenham Festival Novice Hurdle Acca with another horse trained by Henderson and owned by JP McManus.
Birchdale is a five-year-old son of Jeremey and has some good-looking course form.
A former point-to-point winner, Birchdale won on debut for Henderson at Warwick.
However, he stepped up on that when landing a Grade 2 here in January on his last start.
He won by 18 lengths that day, but that was largely due to his main rival falling late on.
However, he was well on top at the time and getting stronger the longer the race went on.
That bodes well for this gruelling three-mile race.
