"Faugheen Might Just Be The Greatest Bet Of All Time" - Social Media Excitement Grows As Cheltenham Festival Hero Is Cut For Stayers Glory

Faugheen Is Being Talked About As a Potential Winner Of The Stayers Hurdle At Cheltenham
Faugheen Is Being Talked About As a Potential Winner Of The Stayers Hurdle At Cheltenham

The Stayers Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival is now just two weeks away and with the news that the defending champion Penhill will miss the race, the market has been shaken up.

Cleeve Hurdle winner Paisley Park has swept all before him this season for Emma Lavelle and deserves to be the clear favourite but there are two stand-out Irish names just behind him at the prices that are attracting plenty of attention.

Samcro is one that could run a big race according to some positive vibes on social media, but it is Faugheen who once again could be on track to make the headlines at Prestbury Park.

The Willie Mullins trained star is 11 now but there is a growing belief that he could have one more big day in him, despite a difficult couple of years. A former winner of the Neptune and the Champion Hurdle, the Rich Ricci owned animal is stepping up to 3m for the first time at the Festival but his price continues to shorten for the Thursday feature.

The Closutton in-mate is now as short as 5/1, from 10s, for the Stayers' Hurdle and there is certainly an increasing belief on twitter amongst racing fans that "the machine" is now the horse to beat in a fortnight...

The more I look at it the more I think 10/1 for Faugheen might just be the greatest bet of all time. People will look back in years and think how the hell was he 10/1 to beat Paisley Park - (@BellshillRat2kg)

Banker of the #cheltenhamfestival Faugheen to win the stayers hurdle - (@WillBradleyRFC)

Faugheen in the stayers is the bet of cheltenham - (@woods_derick)

Faugheen has an absolutely HUGE chance now - (@KillianBroderi1)

If Faugheen does indeed manage to do the unthinkable and win at Cheltenham for a third time, there is every chance the roof will come off the stands in Gloucestershire as one of the favourite sons of national hunt racing cements his legacy further.
