Cheltenham Festival: A New Story has the chance to make history
Former winner A New Story has the chance to make history in the Glenfarclas Cross-Country Handicap Chase today, writes Jonathan Herbert.
Should the 15-year-old repeat his 2010 success, he would be the first teenager to win a race at the Festival since Earthmover won the Foxhunter Chase in 2004 aged 13.
The honour of being the oldest Festival winner goes to Denis Auburn, who was 17 when he won the Swindon Chase in 1920, five years after he won the Foxhunter Chase.
And Nigel Twiston-Davies plans to keep blinkers on Ackertac after he belied his odds of 66-1 to finish second, beaten by only a neck, in the Rewards4Racing Handicap Chase on the first day of the Festival.

The Guiting Power trainer said: “He’s run his heart out but it could have been a different story. He was hampered by the winner (Rajdhani Express) early on and that’s probably cost him the race. It’s a bit of a shame but these things happen.
“The blinkers have worked really well and that’s been the key to his run. We’ll definitely keep them on in future.”
