With not much racing taking place in the world, us racing fans need something to hold on to and the 2021 Cheltenham festival seems a good enough topic to talk about.
It may be early but there is no harm in being prepared for the greatest show on turf and we believe we have an early ante-post angle for the novice hurdle contests on offer.
Willie Mullins, again had a stand out festival this season making it back to back trainers titles at Prestbury Park and you would be brave to think he is not going to continue having nice winners in the big races next season.
When it comes the big novice hurdle contests at Cheltenham you must first look at the horses that performed well in the Champion bumper the season before.
Mullins has the 1-2 and even though Ferny Hollow got the better of stablemate Appreciate It we think the latter is the horse to take out of the race going over hurdles next season.
Before his strong second at Cheltenham he landed a Grade Two in fine style at the Dublin Racing festival and having won over two and a half miles previously he could end up in any of three contests at the four day meeting.
Currently being 10/1 to win any race at the 2021 Cheltenham festival looks huge value and something we will surely be taking advantage of.
