Cheltenham Festival Competition Day 2 Round Up

Mooroe’s Cheltenham Competition 2013

in association with

Day Two provided racegoer’s with one of the most memorable and enjoyable displays of jumping, as Sprinter Sacre trounced his field by 19 lengths and more to win the Champion Chase.  His jockey Barry Geraghty remained motionless as his mount crossed the finish line to a standing ovation and it remains to be seen what happens next with Nicky Henderson’s horse. I for one hope that his owners do not stick to the easy 2 mile chases next year, but infact try and broaden their horizons to tougher test’s over two and a half or more.  I really dream of seeing this horse taking on the world in next year’s Gold Cup, but that may be too much to ask.

Day Two had its frustrations with both Rival D’Estruval and Boston Bob looking like winners of their respective races, before coming to grief at the last fence. But with some big priced winners about, it certainly makes the competition all that more interesting.

The competition had its first accumulated Banker winner too, as The New One added £65 to the kitty and now we have 8 placed prizes in the league table.
