Cheltenham Week

Cheltenham

We only have two runners this week as we are saving some of our guns for Aintree. However the two we are running are definitely not on a whim.


KEEPER HILL
Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3)

Keeper Hill has been a huge flag bearer for us over the years. He has represented the stable at nearly all the big meetings and has staked his claim in Listed and Graded company. His best run this year coming second by one and a quarter lengths to Frodon in the Grade 2 Silviniaco Conti Chase at Kempton.

He is working and schooling well at home and we are very happy with him going into this week. Adrian Heskin who knows him inside and out will ride him on Thursday and fingers crossed for a good performance.


BOB MAHLER
Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase
Another of our current stars is the legend BOB MAHLER. The apple of Taylor’s eye, he has won at many of the major tracks in England and Scotland and has even won over course and distance for this week. To add to that he was third in this very race last year and goes into Thursday in top form. He is a big hope for us all and we can’t wait to see what he can do this year. Hopefully he can move two places up!
