Three current overpriced horses for the Cheltenham festival

Thyme Hill - 7/1 - Ballymore and Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle

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.

Sam's Profile - 33/1 - Stayers Hurdle

A horse that has not been seen this season and is a huge price for the Stayers Hurdle is the Mouse Morris trained Sam's Profile who is yet to run this season.

The five year old was very consistent last season placing in four out of his five races, going on to win one of them with the only race he was out the top three coming in the Ballymore Novices Hurdle at the festival.

Sam's Profile was a good fifth in the Grade One Novices contest at Cheltenham last season posing a big threat to the leaders before a bad jump three out stopping his momentum.

Now going up in trip he is 33/1 for the Stayers Hurdle which looks a very generous price in the current market with many at the top of the betting very unlikely to be entered into the race.

This should see the horse drop down in price and the 33/1 being no more and thats why, alongside his ability, why he is very overpriced

Kemboy - 7/1 - Gold Cup

The final horse we need to talk about is Kemboy for trainer Willie Mullins that started the year as the Gold Cup favourite but has since drifted to 7/1 for no fault of his own.

The seven year old last season was superb starting his season off at Clonmel in the Grade Two Oil Chase and easing to victory to suggest that this season he looks a far more mature horse.

He showed this again when stepping up to three miles in the Savills Chase at Leopardstown and was brilliant landing the Grade One, beating what looked like would be his rivals in the Gold Cup.

The only mishap he made all season was in the Cheltenham contest where he was highly touted to go well for Willie Mullins but at the first fence unseated his rider David Mullins making for a huge anti-climax.

He finished the season off smartly though, having not really getting a run out at Cheltenham he went to Aintree fit as a fiddle and romped to victory in the Betway Bowl to land his second Grade One of the season.

The Punchestown Gold Cup was his final race of the season and what a race it turned out to be with both of the Mullins runners battling it out to the finish and Kemboy seeing off his stablemate Al Boum Photo to take the race.

With the problems that have occurred with the horses owners, Mullins has not been able to race him but wit that soon to be cleared up he will be back on track in no time.

With that in mind if he gets off to a winning start that 7/1 will be no more thats why we think the current price is very valuable.
