Cheltenham Festival suffers fresh blow after Gold Cup sponsor Magners drops out

Cheltenham Festival suffers fresh financial blow after Gold Cup sponsor Magners drops out just 36 days before prestigious raceMagners had already decided not to take up their option for 2022 Gold Cup  The Irish cider brand severed their backing of this year's race on ThursdayCheltenham-based charity WellChild will replace them as sponsors this yearBy Marcus Townend for the Daily Mail Published: 17:41 EST, 11 February 2021 | Updated: 17:47 EST, 11 February 2021 Cheltenham has been hit with another financial body blow after sponsors Magners pulled out of backing next month’s Cheltenham Festival and sponsoring the centrepiece Gold Cup.The announcement came just 36 days before the race.A Jockey Club spokesman said: ‘The brand will no longer be promoted at the Festival.’ Magners pulled out of backing the Cheltenham Festival and sponsoring the Gold CupMagners did not respond to a request for comment but staging the 2020 meeting against a backdrop of the developing Covid-19 pandemic attracted negative publicity.Racemail revealed in November that Magners would not take up their option to sponsor the 2022 Gold Cup but on Thursday came the even earlier severing of the sponsorship as Jockey Club Racecourses announced the Cheltenham-based charity WellChild would have their name alongside the blue riband event at the four-day Festival.The organisation is a national charity which helps sick children and their families.It is a magnanimous gesture by Cheltenham’s owners, who hope to build brand awareness for a charity which has lost 60 per cent of its income during the pandemic.With no replacement backer yet announced for the Derby at Epsom after Investec pulled out last year, two of Britain’s biggest three races — the exception being the Randox Grand National — are without a sponsor, a headache for Jockey Club Racecourses, which faced a £90million loss in revenue last year.Meanwhile, Newbury will reschedule Saturday's Denman Chase meeting for a week on Sunday if it fails this morning’s inspection.

I'd say that would be up there with her best performances but she has put in a few good ones.'Asked about a potential shot at the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham, De Bromhead said would need to consult with owner Kenny Alexander but added: 'You'd have to feel that we'd be leaning that way.'None of Honeysuckle's five opponents looked like laying a glove on her after Blackmore pressed on from the front four hurdles from home.Blackmore and De Bromhead will try to press their Cheltenham Gold Cup claims with Minella Indo in Sunday afternoon's Irish Gold Cup.Meanwhile Chacun Pour Soi is odds-on favourite for the Queen Mother Champion Chase after winning the Ladbrokes Dublin Chase for the second year running with an electric performance. It was one of three grade one wins for trainer Willie Mullins and jockey Paul Townend who also landed the Arkle Novices' Chase with the impressive Energumene and 2m 6f novice hurdle with Gaillard Du Mesnil.Native River, the 2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, was cut to 16-1 to win the race again after relishing testing conditions to win the Cotswold Chase at Sandown.

Willie Mullins’ power play in Leopardstown as trainer prepares for Cheltenham Festival 
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Willie Mullins to flex his mucles in two days of action at Leopardstown as Ireland's champion trainer prepares for March's Cheltenham FestivalWillie Mullins will have five of his ante-post favourites running this weekend Three of them will challenge Honeysuckle on Saturday at the festival in DublinThe Dublin Racing Festival will shape the build-up to Cheltenham next month By Marcus Townend for the Daily Mail Published: 17:30 EST, 5 February 2021 | Updated: 17:30 EST, 5 February 2021 Willie Mullins flexes his muscles at Leopardstown this weekend in two days of action that will shape the build-up to the Cheltenham Festival next month.Ireland's champion trainer, whose 72 wins make him the most successful trainer in Festival history, has nine Cheltenham ante-post favourites and five of them will run over the two days of the Dublin Racing Festival.But the most illuminating moment of day one will be the challenge three of his runners can throw down to Honeysuckle — potentially Ireland's leading Champion Hurdle contender — in Saturday's Chanelle Pharma Irish Champion Hurdle. Willie Mullins has five Cheltenham ante-post favourites in action at the Dublin Racing FestivalHoneysuckle, trained by Henry De Bromhead, won the 2020 running before landing the Grade One Mares' Hurdle at Cheltenham with her team not convinced her less-than-slick jumping made her ready for the ultimate hurdling test in the Cotswolds.The indications are that victory on Saturday would earn unbeaten Honeysuckle a shot at Epatante & Co on March 16. Standing in her way are the Mullins trio of Saint Roi, who easily won last year's County Hurdle, two-time Grade One winner Saldier and 2020 Champion Hurdle runner-up Sharjah.The last named was sixth in last year's Irish Champion Hurdle but three consecutive wins in the Grade One Matheson Hurdle at Leopardstown's Christmas meeting — the latest with Saint Roi fourth and Saldier sixth — are a better indication of his ability.Mullins, who runs Kemboy and Melon in Sunday's Irish Gold Cup, said: 'I just hope Sharjah doesn't do what he did last year when he made a mistake at the first hurdle down the back that threw him completely for the rest of the race.'Saldier seemed to need the run at Christmas when Saint Roi performed below our expectations. I don't know if it was our tactics or he just wasn't right but we were hoping for a much better performance.'Chacun Pour Soi beat his Mullins-trained stablemate Min in the Dublin Chase last year and the favourite for the Queen Mother Champion Chase will be expected to do so again. Three of his contenders will mount a challenge against favourite Honeysuckle on SaturdayArguably the most fascinating Mullins runner on Saturday is Energumene, second favourite behind Shishkin for the Arkle Novices' Chase at Cheltenham and an easy winner of his two chase starts.The gelding carries the colours of Brighton chairman Tony Bloom and faces Grade One winning stablemate Franco Du Port and last year's Champion Hurdle third Darver Star in Ireland's version of the Arkle Chase.Mullins said: 'He has shown me already that he is good enough to go to Cheltenham as long as he doesn't make a complete mess of it this weekend.'
