Building For A Festival Success

Lalor wins at Cheltenham

It’s the place that every trainer, jockey and owner wants to win. It’s a phrase that’s certainly over-saturated, but it still holds true, no matter how many times it’s coined. The Cheltenham Festival produces stories that you could scarce believe, with even the best non-fiction authors unable to match some of the spell-binding memories that the Festival has provided.

The place where champions are crowned and legacies are forged, there is simply nothing that compares to a Festival winner.

From Big Bucks majestic four-timer in the World Hurdle, to Kauto Star getting back up off the canvas to regain the Gold Cup, every Festival has its standout moment. This year’s iconic moment could be coming on March 12th, the first day of the Festival.

A horse that brought the house down in floods of emotion when scoring an extremely poignant success for Kayley Woollacott at Cheltenham in November, the dream is more than alive for another roof-raiser in the Arkle Novices’ Chase.

A Cheltenham Festival winner is forged through the hard work and dedication of a big team of people. From the Bloodstock agent who purchases them, to the trainer and work riders who get them into the best shape possible, the process is far bigger than many would imagine.

This is all explained in the latest episode of Betway’s series focusing on Kayley Woollacott, which focuses on the preparation for the Festival with Lalor.

Although he’s not been seen since Sandown back in December, the preparation to get Lalor into Festival winning shape has continued, including a good racecourse gallop at Exeter.

Currently sitting a prominent 4/1 in the Arkle market, the confidence behind Lalor is high and he’ll be returning to Cheltenham in five days time looking to once again provide a magical success for his connections.

We all talk about those great Festival moments, and few can deny that if Lalor jumps all thirteen fences and comes up the Cheltenham Hill ahead under Richard Johnson, there will be no unhappy faces in the crowd as he records one of those feel-good memories at the Festival.

With all the hard work and dedication that the team at South Molton has put in obvious for all to see, everyone at myracing wishes the team the best of luck at the Festival, with little doubt that Kayley will be a prominent training figure for years to come.

We’d also like to thank Betway for the use of their video.
