The first horse we want to talk about in regard to the Cheltenham festival is Thyme Hill for trainer Philip Hobbs and this novice hurdler has done nothing wrong but is still a huge prices for the possible races he will be heading to in March.
The five year old was smart in bumpers last season with a win on his debut and then two placed efforts which included a third in the Grade One Champion Bumper at the festival behind Envoi Allen.
He made his debut last month at Chepstow in a decent Grade Two event and got off the mark in good style beating some smart horses and it looks as if the wanted even further
He then headed back to Cheltenham on his latest start keeping his unbeaten record in the Ballymore Novices Grade Two Hurdle beating a strong field.
Having previous Cheltenham form is always a huge positive for the festival and we can't believe after two wins in Grade Two company that this horse is still 7/1 for both the Ballymore and Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle.
