Horse Racing Cheltenham Festival By Jon Ivan-Duke

Impressed By Peace & Co

After seeing Peace And Co cruise to victory in the JCB Triumph Hurdle trial at Cheltenham, William Hill trimmed the winner to 7-4 favourite from 5-2 favourite for the juvenile feature in March.


“Peace And Co is the leading juvenile heading towards the Festival and he’s firmly the one to beat in the Triumph Hurdle,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “We’ve already taken plenty in the book for Peace And Co and there will be a few more takers after an eye-catching performance.”


Meanwhile at Doncaster, Three Kingdoms picked up the Grade 2 Lightning Novices’ Chase and is 33-1 for both the Arkle and the JLT Novices’ Chase – and John Ferguson’s winner is 16-1 to win any race at the Cheltenham Festival.
