to get the latest odds on the 2012 Cheltenham Festival.
The greatest jump horses in the world will all head to the Festival in search of a place in the record books and Long Run will surely be back to defend his Gold Cup crown after his exhilarating success in the world famous race in 2011.
Nicky Henderson’s superstar will be just seven years of age and it will be fascinating to see if there is a horse than can improve past the French import. Can Kauto Star and Denman return for yet another Cheltenham Festival? Or will the likes of Pandorama and Weapon's Amnesty provide the biggest test to Long Run as he looks to defend his crown in the world famous race.
Meanwhile, there will be plenty of racing fanatics wondering whether Hurricane Fly can retain his Champion Hurdle title after a sensational season that saw him finish the campaign unbeaten. With the Irish now suggesting he could be their best hurdler since the mighty Istabraq, Willie Mullins' superstar is sure to be a warm favourite in the ante post betting for the race.
While it is impossible to know what next year’s meeting will bring one thing is for certain: the action is sure to be explosive, exhilarating and thoroughly intriguing.
