The week ahead.
First Avenue, who sprang a 20/1 surprise in the William Hill Imperial Cup 12 months ago, is among 19 entries for the big handicap hurdle at Sandown on Saturday. Laura Mongan's inmate has not won since then, but warmed up for a repeat with a run on the Flat at Kempton last month. The highest-rated horse in the list is the Evan Williams-trained Court Minstrel, who was last seen finishing fourth behind The New One in the International Hurdle at Cheltenham in December. David Pipe is always a trainer to fear in these contests and has two possibles in Baltimore Rock and Swing Bowler. Paul Nicholls is double-handed with Lac Fontana and Vibrato Valtat and Jonjo O'Neill looks to Prompter and Get Back In Line. As expected, Anthony Honeyball has put in his smart novice Regal Encore, while Fourth Estate is champion trainer Nicky Henderson's sole representative. Among other interesting entries are Charlie Longsdon's Harristown, John Ferguson's New Year's Eve and The Skyfarmer from Philip Hobbs' stable

The Festival at Cheltenham is the
shining jewel in Jump racing's crown. It is four days of magic, madness and
magnificence, played out on a stage framed by the breathtaking Cotswold Hills.
It features a cast of the best horses, jockeys and trainers playing to an
audience of 220,000, all of who are determined to have the time of their
first day of The Festival Tuesday features the most important
hurdle race of the season, the Stan James Champion Hurdle. The 2011 victor,
Hurricane Fly reclaimed his title in last season's renewal when beating Rock On
Ruby, who won the race in 2012. In doing so, Hurricane Fly became the first
horse in 38 years to reclaim the Champion Hurdle Trophy. Six other cracking
races and the unique first day atmosphere make this one of the sporting
highlights of the year. Including the OLBG Mares Hurdle, won for the last five
years by Quevega, who might try and make it six on the trot at the 2014 Festival
- a phenomenal achievement. Wednesday is ladies day. The real
action though is on the track, with a fantastic seven race card featuring the
Queen Mother Champion Chase. The sight of the best two mile chasers going
head-to-head around the famous Cheltenham course is, for many people, the
highlight of The Festival. Last year's renewal was no exception with Sprinter
Sacre doing as so many had hoped and proving his dominance over the chase fences
at this distance. The odds-on favourite is fast becoming the newest Champion of
Jump racing and his followers will be hoping for many more performances of that
last year, the legendary hurdler Big Buck's was injured so was unable to line up
for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle, giving other horses the chance to take the
honours in the long distance hurdle race. Appropriately it proved to be the luck
of the Irish, with Solwhit, trained by Charles Byrnes proving victorious, much
to the delight of the Irish members of the crowd. Friday
is Gold Cup day. Last year the small but extremely tough Bobs Worth came from
behind to put his nose in front on the line, finishing a magnificent week for
last season's Champion Trainer Nicky Henderson. Long Run, his stablemate and the
2011 winner of the race finished third with the Irish-trained horse Sir Des
Champs second. The first race on the card is the JCB Triumph Hurdle for
juveniles, where the very impressive Our Conor made a winning Cheltenham debut
in 2013 - hopefully he might be returning to Cheltenham for the 2014 Festival to
take on the older, more experienced horses. Six other magical races, including
two more Grade 1 events and three fiercely competitive handicaps, make this a
day to cherish.CHELTENHAM TRENDS.
