12th Mar 2013 | Cheltenham Festival
Race Profile: The leading long-distance hurdle race in the National Hunt calendar. It has been dominated in recent years by Big Buck’s, but his injury enforced absence has opened up the race.
19 of the last 22 winners finished in the top two last time out.
A prominent runner hasn’t won any of the last 10 renewals.
No Irish winner for 18 years.
Anti Trends Selection:
Bog Warrior 9/1 Bet365
Bog Warrior put in a career best performance winning on his first attempt at 3 miles. If the ground were to come up soft he could give Ireland their first winner in the race for 18 years.
