With Cheltenham now just 2 months away, we wanted to provide you with a couple of horses on the radar that may well contest one of the handicaps at the Festival.
We’ve referred back to our review of last year’s meeting and taken two of potential interest for this years Festival.
Our Cheltenham review from last year is freely available within the members dashboard: Cheltenham Festival 2020 Review – A Racing First
Coko Beach trained by Gordon Elliott, was noted as one to mark up from his 9th place finish in the Coral Cup. This season he has changed codes and been sent chasing; and whilst he has yet to win over fences, he’s run some nice races in small fields, and could be of interest if targeted at one of the Festival handicaps.
Thyme White has run just twice since Cheltenham, and whilst he suggested he’d be of real interest when sent over fences, he has looked a hugely improved horse this season. An impressive winner at Chepstow on his reappearance, he then unseated Harry Cobden when still yet to make his challenge at Newbury last time. He might just be one that is being looked after for something like the County Hurdle, where his current rating of 141 should see him make the cut off for the race, if that is indeed the plan.
All The Best,
