One Horse, Jockey and Trainer To Follow at Cheltenham

Horse To Follow - Pentland Hills

The Grade One Triumph Hurdle winner at last year's festival and the 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle at the Grand National meeting, Pentland Hills looks the one to beat in the Grade Two International.

The Nicky Henderson trained four year old came on the scene late last season but remained unbeaten in all three of his starts and makes his seasonal debut in the Grade Two International Hurdle on Saturday.

He is proven over this distance at the track and with form on both good and soft ground he looks a very versatile type that will be tough to beat.

Trainer To Follow - Nicky Henderson

One of the master British trainers Nicky Henderson has some big runners at Cheltenham on Saturday and we believe he will be worth following on the day.

Henderson could have at least six or seven runners heading to post across the seven race card and having a strike rate of 27.5% for the last two weeks he is fine fettle.

Cheltenham is a track that the trainer has fond memories of, being at the festival and in the lead up to March as he uses these trials methodically and takes them very seriously.

Jockey To Follow - Harry Cobden

Harry Cobden is a very likeable jockey that has performed to the highest of standards over the last few seasons and at Prestbury Park on Saturday after having some big rides also on the Friday he will be pumper up with his set of mounts on the Saturday.

Cobden will be jumping between his retained partnership with Paul Nicholls on his horses like Secret Investor in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup, but also Colin Tizzard who also has some nice runners on the day.

The young rider over the last 12 months has been one of the most consistent jockeys in the sport having a strike rate of 21.11% which is remarkable and we are hoping he can add to that at jumps racing HQ over the weekend.
