Racing news Minella pips Cheltenian on return

Minella pips Cheltenian on return20th February 2013

Minella Forfitness got up in the last stride to deny Cheltenian a winning comeback in the SIG Insulation EBF "National Hunt" Novices' Hurdle at Doncaster.

The 9-4 favourite was only third over the final flight, but responded to Barry Geraghty's urgings on the drive to the line to strike by a short head.

"He ran a bit with the choke out so I had to wait until he filled up again. I think he's suited by further. It was only after the last when I felt I had a chance. He's more of a horse for next year," said Geraghty.
