This weekend, like any in the run up to the Cheltenham festival we saw plenty of horses through their names into the hat for the big Grade ones at the festival.
Cilaos Emery for trainer Willie Mullins has been a hard horse to train and keep fit but the seven year old gelding now back to his best this season and stayed unbeaten when winning nicely at Cork on Sunday.
The son of Califet made his seasonal debut at Naas in the Grade Three Poplar Square Chase at the start of September and beat a small field with ease.
He looks to be aimed at the Champion Chase at Cheltenham this year and has to be strongly mix after winning at Cork on Sunday in the Grade Two Hilly Way Chase.
He was 14/1 before that race but at most bookmakers is a best price of 8/1.
