A Fantastic week at Cheltenham for our yards!
On Tuesday Nicky Henderson had the winner of the Champion Hurdle with Beveur D'Air, and second both in the Challenge Trophy with Brain Power, and the Close Brothers Novice Chase with Rather Be. Congrats to the yard and in particular to Beveur D'Air who retained his crown, one of only a select number of horses to do so.
On Wednesday Hendersons yard also had the winner of the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase with Altior who was lame only on Monday morning with a puncture wound and infected frog. Thanks to our staff and Manager Mick Towell this was released and the horse was back sound. Nicky also had a second place in the Boodles Fred Winter Juvenille Handicap Hurdle with Style De Garde.
On Thursday Hendersons had another second place in the JLT Novices Chase with Terrefort. And Warren Greatrex had a great winner in the Fulke Walwyn Jim Muir Chalelnge Cup with Missed Approach.
On Friday - a very exciting day - with second and third place for Hendersons in the Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle with OK Corral and Santini. And of course second place in the Gold Cup with Might Bite who ran his heart out.
A big well done to all at Seven Barrows and Uplands, and all our staff who helped to get the horses ready for a great Cheltenham meet.
