Tattersalls Cheltenham April Entries Revealed


A select National Hunt Sale will be held in Newmarket on April 23 | Tattersalls 

The return of point-to-pointing in Britain and Ireland has facilitated a number of recent winners to be entered for the Tattersalls Cheltenham April Sale which, because of ongoing Covid restrictions at racecourses, will be held in Newmarket on April 23.

Twenty-three young jumpers have been catalogued, 17 of which have won a point-to-point or bumper in the last few weeks, including the 5-year-old Takoda (Ire) (Doyen {GB}), who strolled to a 25-length victory on debut at Higham on April 2. Also catalogued is a Shirocco (Ger) half-sister to the Grade 3-winning chaser Burn And Turn (Ire) (Flemensfirth) from the family of the high-class Space Trucker (Ire). Named Letthetruthbeknown (Ire), the 5-year-old mare was the eight-length winner of the mares' point-to-point bumper at Cork on April 5.

Inspections for the sale can take place at Tattersalls' Park Paddocks from 1pm on Thursday, April 22, and the sale will commence the following day, also at 1pm.
