Every punter wants a banker for a horse racing festival and this truly is the case for the 26 race racing extravaganza that we know as the Cheltenham Festival. Come March 16th 2010 nearly everyone interested in National Hunt racing will be checking out every possible angle to find that all important banker that will pay the expenses. In previous years we have had the likes of Master Minded and Kauto Star, this year the one that everyone will be pinning their hopes on will be Big Bucks in the Ladbroke World Hurdle.
Having watched the Long Walk Hurdle trial during Christmas once again Big Bucks proved he was just to good for his opposition where he beat his closest rivals in the betting, Karabak and Diamond Harry, who as a direct result of this race may now turn his attention to the bigger obstacles. It was very obvious from this race that neither of these will give him a race come March.
On New Years day we saw another Nicky Henderson horse Sentry Duty look a million dollars at Cheltenham but he did not beat much on the day and his odds flatter him for the Ladbroke World Hurdle.
At Present Paddy Power are giving the best value and we suggest you take a look at Big Buck's price as while it is skinny it will be good value come 18th March at around 4:30pm.
