Cheltenham Festival Market Movers From The Weekend - 25/11/19

Laurina - Arkle Chase - 8/1 into 4/1

The first horse we need to talk about from the weekends racing is the super-mare Laurina for trainer Willie Mullins who made her debut over fences in complete style.

The six year old is already well known for what she has previously done in her career having only been beaten once since making her rules debut and that came when giving a disappointing performance in last seasons Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival.

That was the final time she was seen on a racecourse before last weekend but in her previous six outings she was immaculate landing contests like the Grade Two Mares Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival and the similar Grade One race at Fairyhouse.

Now stepping up to the bigger obstacles there was plenty of apprehension about this horse and she took to fences superbly seeing off last seasons Grade One Albert Bartlett winner Minella Indo with ease.

It was a very taking performance at Gowran Park and it saw her odds for the Arkle Chase at the festival slashed from 8/1 into 4/1 with most firms.

Cyrname - Gold Cup - 25/1 into 12/1

In what was the race of the weekend, the match up that every horse racing fan had been waiting for with Altior taking on the young pretender Cyrname at Ascot in the 1965 Christy Chase.

The race lived up to expectations with it going right to the finish but Paul Nicholls' horse managed to end Henderson's Altior 19 race unbeaten run with the step up in trip for the superstar looking harder than expected.

However, Cyrname on his favourite track and favourite distance got the job done under a great ride by Harry Cobden and now has been smashed in the markets for a few races.

The seven year old is now 5/2 to land the King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day from a previous 5/2 and more importantly if he was to head to the Cheltenham festival for the Gold Cup he is now 12/1 from 25s.

Lostintranslation - Gold Cup - 8/1 into 7/2

The final horse from this weeks market movers segment for the Cheltenham festival is of course the ew favourite for the Gold Cup Lostintranslation.

This superstar for Colin Tizzard has gone from strength to strength so far this season being unbeaten on both his starts and firmly putting his name in the hat for the big one at the festival.

He made his seasonal bow at Carlisle breezing a field of four runners with ease but at the weekend he headed to Haydock for the Grade One Betfair Chase.

He was the second favourite behind the established Bristol De Mai but on his first start outside of his Novice Chasing career he battled it out to the line to land the spoils.

He showed a different side to him on Saturday jumping perfectly as ever but showing his true staying ability that had not been seen before.

He is now the stand alone 7/2 favourite for the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March having been 14/1 at the start of the season and 8/1 before that race.
