So now we will watch the Cheltenham Festival without Sprinter Sacre AND Cue Card.

There is still an abundance of quality horses and races to look forward to the week after next.
But, before that, we have racing at Ludlow and Taunton to investigate tomorrow.
There are so many small field races at Taunton - races led by short priced favourites . . .
