Cheltenham Market Movers From The Week

Chantry House - Supreme Novices Hurdle - 12/1 into 7/1

The first race on Saturday at Newbury saw a 15 runner novices hurdle and the stand out name was Chantry House for Nicky Henderson who was having his second run over timber.

The six year old headed into the contest as the stand alone odds on favourite and was a banker to land the race and did with complete ease only being shaken up late in the day to go away from the pack.

He truly entered the Supreme Novices debate going from 12/1 to 7/1 with some bookmakers and for Henderson he holds some strong chances in the first race of the festival with Shishkin also expected to head there.

As for Chantry House, he will be one of JP McManus' leading chances at the Grade One and with the way his form line has evolved with the form of his two previous wins being franked massively he could be a horse that has gone under the radar.

Altior - Champion Chase - 11/4 into 2/1

The mighty Altior got back to winning ways to land his third Game Spirit Chase at Newbury and although jumping slightly slowly his devastating turn of foot after the last saw him take the race with ease.

Many doubted the star after his first defeat at Ascot when stepping up in trip for the first time in his career, but back at two miles saw him back to what he is best at and he took the Grade Two Spoils.

It was an impressive victory overall with Nicky Henderson explaining after the race that he will be sure to improve and he will need to when taking on his toughest test of his career in this year's Champion Chase.

With that in mind the bookmakers slashed the four time Cheltenham festival winner in to 2/1 from 11/4 to take the race.

Ocean Wind - Champion Bumper - 50/1 into 16/1

The final horse that we want to mention is Ocean Wind who was the biggest market mover of the weekend after taking the final race of the day at Newbury in the Listed Bumper.

The four year old for flat trainer Roger Teal landed a gamble on the day being smashed in all day to finally go off at 7/2 and he bolted up.

Aidan Coleman gave him a peach of a ride but the most exciting think about the horse was how well he pulled away from the field in the final stages.

Pace is certainly something he has on his side and with that in mind the bookies cut him into 16/1 for the Champion Bumper from a huge 50/1.
