6yo BR G YEATS – THE LAST BANK (PHARDANTE)
|Owner:||Eric A. Elliott|
The opening contest of the Cheltenham Festival on Tuesday sees a final entry of 22, containing multiple point-to-point graduates.
Recent Yeats Tattersalls winner, Chantry House, commanded top-billing on a big night at the sales for point-to-pointers.
The first of nine contests produced an impressive display when Mount Ida took the opening division of the four-year-old mares’ maiden.
The four-time Ascot Gold Cup winner proved to be the sire to follow, as he won three of the four-year-old maidens at Tattersalls.
