"It's like another day of the Festival": Who to look out for on a unique Trials Day
Updated: Jan 29
12:40 Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase
Originally set for December's International meeting, the cross-country course stands at good to soft, soft in places this afternoon. With November's challenge also abandoned, this is the first time Cheltenham's centre track will see use since the Festival last March. On that occasion, Delta Work became Tiger Roll's stablemate party-spoiler. With Tiger Roll retired, he's favourite tomorrow, while struggling Minella Times (a faller in the 2022 Grand National) looks to regain prowess, having gone third (with Rachael Blackmore aboard) in a Grade 3 at Cork last April. All eyes however, will of course be on Charlie Longsdon's brave mare, Snow Leopardess, whose National dreams tailed off after the 16th. Can her magic be relit here?
