Destination: Cheltenham

The Trib has been running a rather fascinating series by Gina Rarick, following one nag on its long road to a start at Cheltenham this month:
"Every year in mid-March, Cheltenham Racecourse, nestled in the hills of Western England, draws the best steeplechasers in the world to its four-day National Hunt Festival. The two biggest races of the Festival, the Queen Mother Champion Chase and the Gold Cup, are the apex of the sport. This is the inside story of one horse's road to the top"
