The first race of the day from Cheltenham on Friday is the Novices' Hurdle over 2m 1/f and the Dan Skelton trained Hartur D'Oudairies looks a very talented youngster.
This exciting purchase for JP McManus has the world at his feet having been picked up after winning a race at Le Mans back in November 2020.
Sent to the Skelton's, who don't have many with the owner, the gelding made his rules debut this season at Warwick in a two mile Novices' Hurdle event.
He looked a superstar in the making, travelling beautifully up to the last flight and then was shrugged to improver and went clear by close to five lengths.
Being a four year old there is plenty of improvement expected and he could turn out to be something special.
This event is much tougher than his first assignment with the likes of Washington and Jpr One looking to be very smart horses themselves, so he will need to give a career best, but is expected to.
