The first horse from the weekend that impressed and saw the biggest market leap from any runner for the Cheltenham festival was the Willie Mullins trained Saldier.
The Irish trainer dominated the five runner field in the Grade One Morgiana Hurdle with three chances and it was the biggest price of them all, Saldier that took the spoils.
We tipped this horse up a few weeks ago as our Champion Hurdle ante-post fancy for the festival in March at a huge price of 16/1, stating that this was a huge price.
Well we have been proven right with the five year old running a blinder that now sees him top the market at 4/1 with the previous price long gone.
The form from last year's Champion Hurdle winner Espoir D'Allen has proven to be very strong and Saldier will only come on for that run on Saturday.
