Horses To Steer Clear Of When It Comes To The Cheltenham Festival

Mares Novices Hurdle - Gyspy Island

The Mares Novices Hurdle favourite at the start of the year for the 2020 Cheltenham festival Gypsy Island has not been seen this season and there is a good reason for that.

The five year old owned by JP McManus was reported to be out for the season by her trainer Peter Fahey after picking up an injury which would definitely rule her out of the festival this year.

However, the bright youngster can still be backed with some firms for the Mares contest on the Thursday but if you were to do so you would be losing your money instantly as she will not be running.

With the ante-post rule you will not receive your money back and it would be a bad way to start your Cheltenham festival betting.

RSA Chase - Sam Spinner

Another horse who will miss the festival through injury but is still in the betting for the RSA Chase is Sam Spinner who before his season ending problem was in ridiculously good form.

He made his seasonal debut in October staying on well to take a Novices Chase contest at Wetherby, he then went back to the same track now over three miles and enjoyed the extra trip to score again in another decent contest.

The gelding is known for his staying ability and kept his unbeaten record alive over fences when seeing off the talented Windsor Avenue at Doncaster with ease.

He was all lined up for the RSA being a proven performer at the Cheltenham festival but if you were thinking of backing him do not.

The Big Getaway - Champion Bumper

The final horse we would like to mention that may be popular in the betting for the Champion Bumper is The Big Getaway for Willie Mullins that last year might have been a good bet for the Grade One but now is not.

The youngster has performed well in all his races winning a point to point before finishing second twice and gaining a win on his last bumper start.

However, his last run saw him being stepped up over hurdles and because this has happened he can no longer run in the Champion Bumper but with some firms he is still in the betting.

It will be another case where you lose your money for nothing and it is worth taking note of, he is most likely to still hd to the festival the Grade One Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle looking to be his most likely target.
