Stars Shine In Cheltenham Festival Entries

A multitude of star performers littered the latest entry stage for the Cheltenham and there were no shocks as the leading protagonists for the four blue riband events stood their ground in what is shaping up into a first class Cheltenham Festival, which starts next month.

Hurricane Fly was the obvious attraction in the Champion Hurdle, but it was Grandouet that was the most interesting entry as there were reports on Tuesday that he may not feature in the list after picking up a slight injury.

However, Nicky Henderson has left him in the line-up and he will join last year's impressive winner Rock On Ruby, whilst the likes of International Hurdle winner Zarkandar and 2012 Supreme winner Cinders And Ashes add great depth to the Grade One race.

Sprinter Sacre is the shining beacon in the Queen Mother Champion Chase betting and he is has scared off a lot of potential rivals and there has only been nine entries received.  However, these do include the last two winners of the crown with Finian's Rainbow and Sizing Europe looking potential challengers to the Seven Barrows hotpot.

Willie Mullins has elected to keep wonder mare Quevega in the World Hurdle list, even though he could well let her line up in the David Nicholson Mares' Hurdle, where she would not come up against the likes of Reve De Sivola and Oscar Whisky.

Meanwhile the premier race of the entire four-day meeting the Cheltenham Gold Cup has seen all the major names hold their place with Bobs Worth looking to notch up his third Festival win, but Sir Des Champs will be another bidding for the hat-trick and is a notable adversary.
