Popbitch goes Cheltenham – Thursday. Sporting history to be made today?

Written by:

This is Big Buck’s.



He’s the one on the left. His trainer, Paul Nicholls, is the one on the right.

Today he attempts to make history. Not since the 1950s has a horse won 16 consecutive races. And today, if he wins the World Hurdle, 3.20pm at Cheltenham, for the fourth time in a row, he will have won his 16th consecutive race.

We’ve yet to see a horse look like they’re getting close to him near the finishing line. And he’s going to start odds-on (i.e the bookmakers think he’s much more likely to win than lose). However, there’s a growing feeling at Cheltenham this week that he’s not going to do it.

Next in the betting is a horse called Oscar Whisky. He’s trained by Nicky Henderson who is having the most amazing run this week. He’s considered the most likely to make the upset.

Yesterday there was a winner called Champagne Fever. Could this be the boozy double?

We very much want to see Big Buck’s do it. But at 4-1 Oscar Whisky is a great bet.
