Megastar Slashed For Cheltenham Festival After Hurdling Debut

Friday 19th November 2010

There is yet another contender in the Novice Hurdle division for the 2011 Cheltenham Festival after the hugely impressive Megastar hosed up at Ascot on his hurdling debut. The Gary Moore horse had a good season last year which included a win at Aintree in the Bumper race and he has taken to hurdles with some style, he cruised to victory in the 2 mile Robert Giles Agencies Introductory Hurdle and now looks set for an exciting campaign. The bookmakers were certainly impressed and he was slashed across the board for both the Supreme Novices Hurdle and the Neptune Novices Hurdle which would see him take in the extra trip.

Connections are yet to make their mind over the ideal trip for Megastar who did pull hard at Ascot, it may be that the extra trip of the Neptune will suit him and that could mean he would avoid Cue Card who looks the one to beat in the Supreme Novices division. The Novices Hurdle market at the Cheltenham Festival is hotting up this season a number of top horses set to take their chances, along with Cue Card there is Zaidpor who looks a star for Willie Mullins and the impressive Dare Me who has hacked up twice already this campaign. Megastar more than belongs in this company on the evidence of his first run over hurdles, he was 5th in the Cheltenham Bumper in March before beating Dare Me into second at Aintree so is clearly an improving horse and looks good value at the prices.
