The first horse that we a re highlighting as a market mover for the Cheltenham festival from the weekend is the Gordon Elliott trained Ginto.
The £470,000 purchase for Bective Stud, left a bit to be desired as a bumper horse, but since being sent over hurdles this term looks a superb animal that is now a 8/1 shot for the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle.
Ginto this season was sent over 2m4f at Navan and went on to bolt up by close to six lengths in a decent event.
He made it back to back wins next time out over the same course and distance, this time in Grade Two company, seeing off the smart Eric Bloodaxe by 11 lengths.
With the Joseph O'Brien horse since franking the form, Ginto went into the Grade One Lawlor's Of Naas Novice Hurdle with a huge chance and overall he dominate proceedings to make it a hat-trick of wins over obstacles and still unbeaten.
All these wins, especially the Grade One last time out, have seen his price has been halved into 8/1 for the Ballymore from 16/1.
