All Roads Lead To Cheltenham Festival

We are now into 2016 and that means that National Hunt eyes will veer towards the Cheltenham Festival, which will take place between March 15 and March 18, as the elite of the National Hunt world do battle over four fabulous days and this year's extravaganza is set to be a sparkling as ever.

Faugheen will not take his chance in the Champion Hurdle, so that Grade 1 on the opening day has become wide open, whilst Un De Sceaux and Sprinter Sacre will be two of the heavyewight speedsters lining up for the Champion Chase win, whilst the Ladbrokes World Hurdle and the Cheltenham Gold Cup will be another couple of top notch Grade 1 events taking place over the spring showpiece.

We will be aiming to continue our winning ways after some decent winners over the last couple of months.

Champion Hurdle - Wide open field set to line up

Willie Mullins's Faugheen has been ruled out of this year's Champion Hurdle through injury, so a host of horses will now fancy their chances of landing the opening day showpiece for what should now be a competitive event.

Nichols Canyon downed Faugheen when they met in the Morgiana Hurdle and that charge will aim to frank the form, whilst the likes of My Tent Or Yours and Identity Thief will be another notable brace of Irish runners lining up.

Cheltenham Gold Cup - Classy field set to line up

Irish-trained runners could dominate the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup and all eyes will be on the classy triumvirate of Don Poli, Don Cossack and Vautour in what is set to be an entertaining renewal of one of the biggest events in the sporting calendar on March 18 at Prestbury Park.

With reigning champion Coneygree not lining up then the home brigade could struggle, but King George VI Chase hero Cue Card will spearhead the British challenge and will be aiming to bag his third Festival win.
