Nusret - Triumph Hurdle - 50/1 into 16/1

The biggest market mover from last week ahead of the 2023 Cheltenham festival was the Joseph O'Brien trained Nusret, who made a scintillating hurdles debut.

A fair horse on the flat for O'Brien reaching a rating of 91 at his peak, now switched to hurdles he looks to be a very exciting animal to go to war with in the juvenile division.

Lining up at Punchestown on Sunday he went on to land the 3-Y-O Hurdle in emphatic fashion, jumping the last well and pulling away from second by six lengths.

This saw him slashed into a general 16/1 for the Grade One Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival from a previous price of 50/1.

A Plus Tard - Gold Cup - 4/1 out to 10/1

A horse who made waves in the Gold Cup Market off the back of his performance on Saturday was last year's winner of the race A Plus Tard.

A Grade One winning superstar for Henry De Bromhead and Cheveley Park Stud, he was looking to secure his second consecutive Betfair Chase but having jumped badly and massively underperformed he was pulled up.

This sparked a massive reaction in the betting for the Cheltenham feature with A Plus Tard going from the 4/1 second favourite out to 10/1.

That could be a huge price for a horse who knows how to win the race.

Jonbon - Arkle Novices' Chase - 4/1 into 2/1

Finally, in a week that didn't see loads of market movers, Jonbon tightened his grip at the top of the Arkle market going from 4/1 into 2/1 with most firms.

A Grade One winning hurdler that suffered his only defeat to stablemate Constitution Hill, he made his chase debut at Warwick when taking on Monmiral and West Cork and he was an emphatic winner.

Jumping every fence foot perfect and then just squeezed to go and win the race he didn't really come off the bridle and looks to be even better this season over the bigger obstacles.
