Cheltenham Festival Market Movers From The Weekends Action


Mister Fisher on Friday bounced back to form to land the rearranged Grade Two Peterborough Chase after starting off his season being pulled up.

The Seven Barrows stable think a lot of this horse and having always shown glimpses of stardom, they will be hoping he can now consistently churn out performances like the one he showed on Friday to win the event.

The Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham festival seems to be his big target for the season and was moved from 33/1 into 16/1 with some firms for the event.

He seems to like racing Cheltenham having now won at back to back December meetings and having finished a good fourth in the Marsh Novices' Chase last term, he will be hoping to go closer in next year's festival.


After bypassing some big events like the Elite Hurdle at Wincanton, Fighting Fifth at Newcastle and Ascot Hurdle, Gary Moore needed to get his stable star going for the season and he chose the International Hurdle on Saturday at Cheltenham.

Having been 11/4 a few days before the superstar went off at 7/4, with many putting his two poor performances on the flat behind him and believing he could get back to his best.

However, Goshen went on to finish last of the 10 runner field and looking a shadow of the horse that almost bolted up in the Triumph hurdle at last seasons festival.

His trainer revealed that the four year old was found to be suffering from a fibrillating heart following the run, which looks to be the main reason for his poor performance.

After three lesser runs on the bounce and other horses running well in the Champion Hurdle division it saw Goshen's price for the race take a massive drift, going from 8/1 out to 25/1 with most firms.


Henry De Bromhead's Captain Guinness looks to be a horse with bags of potential having only raced three times over hurdles and now two times over fences, the majority of the time showing clear ability

The gelding won at Navan in a 23 runner race on his career debut last December which saw a lot of the form franked and then next time out he backed that up at Punchestown when a very narrow second to Andy Dufresne in the Grade Two Moscow Flyer.

After just two runs over timber he head to Cheltenham for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle and when looking to mount a challenge was unfortunately bought down.

Now his handler has decided to send him over fences and after making his debut and giving a run that was too bad to be true, next time out he got off the mark over the bigger obstacles in classy fashion.

He looks to have huge scope for improvement and the Arkle Challenge Trophy market believes so aswell having been moved into 16/1 from 33s before that race.
