Good mid-day and welcome to the 2nd day of this CheltenhamFestival And allow’s begin immediately with the huge information that warm on the heels of Altior’s defection from the Champion Chase the other day, regrettably Chacun Pour Soi has actually been stated a non-runner as a result of a veterinarians certification.
That indicates what had actually looked the race of the Festival has actually currently been annihilated and leaves what seems an open objective for Defi DuSeuil The Tingle Creek champion is currently a 2/5 preferred in a five-horse area. What an embarassment. That Altior-Chacun-Defi three-way fight resembled fireworks all round. And currently we have this.Eurgh
But allow us not stay as there is lots else to expect. Not as long back, the Cross County Chase was quickly overlooked, yet not so when Tiger Roll is included. The dual Grand National champion has actually thrived 4 times at this Festival and is bidding to finish a Cross Country hat-trick this mid-day.
Just check out exactly how he won by 22 sizes in this race in 2015:.
