Douvan Set To Light Up Day Two Of Cheltenham Festival

Tuesday 14th March 2017

Douvan will be the star attraction on day two of the Cheltenham Festival, as the Willie Mullins-trained superstar aims to land Queen Mother Champion Chase glory on Wednesday afternoon, but there will be another scintillating seven-race card, and we preview all the action here.....

A dual festival winner, Douvan will be a red-hot favourite to make a hat-trick at 3:30pm on Wednesday, as he aims to be the catalyst for a turn in fortunes for his trainer, who drew a blank on the opening day, as Gordon Elliott propelled into the limelight with a stunning three winners on Tuesday.

The action kicks off at 1:30pm with the Neptune Novices' Hurdle, and Harry Fry's Neon Wolf is sure to prove popular amongst punters, and he will lock horns with Bacardys, while at 2:10pm Might Bite will be the one to beat in the RSA Chase, as he aims to hand Nicky Henderson more success at this year's festival, after he trained a double on the opening day.

The abovementioned Elliott will fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet once again in the Coral Cup at 2:50pm as Tombstone is a leading fancy for that ultra-competitive handicap hurdle, while at 4:00pm the Cross Country Chase will see Cantlow and Cause Of Causes carry the silks of JP McManus, who landed his 50th winner as an owner at the Cheltenham Festival.

It's then over to the juveniles in race six as a competitive field line up for the Fred Winter at 4:50pm, while the day concludes with the Champion Bumper at 5:30pm, and it's sure to be a race that is jam-packed with talent for the future.
