Underdogs to look out for at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival

There are plenty of big names set to be running at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival. The likes of Paisley Park and Tiger Roll will all take to the Prestbury Park turf in search of glory but as always, some horses may have gone under the radar as we build-up to the week.

We have a look at some underdogs to look out for who may have been missed in the betting and might not be familiar to casual racing fans.

Darver Star – Champion Hurdle

It’s one of the most open Champion Hurdles in years so perhaps all of the horses that line up can be seen as underdogs but Gavin Cromwell’s charge may not be familiar to many and could be capable of running a huge race in the Champion Hurdle.

He’s been impressive this season against come classy types. He outran his odds in the Royal Bond in December when third to highly rated novices Envoi Allen and Abacadabras and followed up with a close second to star mare Honeysuckle in the Irish Champion Hurdle. Gavin Cromwell trained the winner of the race last year and with no Envoi Allen or Honeysuckle, Darver Star looks set to go close again.

Aso – Ryanair Chase

Aso isn’t exactly a household name ]ns and will no doubt be set again to run a strong race. Venetia Williams’ star ran Frodon all the way to the line last year and was third to Un De Sceaux in 2017, he clearly likes Cheltenham and always gives his all.

He faces a much stiffer test this year with competition in the form of Willie Mullins’ Min and last years Close Brothers winner, A Plus Tard and is no doubt a huge underdog in the race but is sure to give another good account.

Cobbler’s Way – Albert Bartlett

The Albert Bartlett is traditionally one of the more difficult grade ones for punters to solve and Cobbler’s Way could be a dark horse for Henry De Bromhead.

He has had four runs under hurdles, starting off over 2 and a half miles where was beaten quite easily by Andy Dufrense however since stepping up in trip has some good pieces of form to his name and may well be able to run a huge race. He got off the mark over hurdles in December in a median hurdle that is working out well.

He beat Joseph O’Brien’s Sempo who has since won then, with a Willie Mullins pair of Francin and The Big Getaway in third and fourth. The pair have also since won, with the latter also a possible runner in the race.

Cobbler’s Way stepped up into Grade One Company last time and was an impressive second to Latest Exhibition and there could be more improvement to come.
