Some Cheltenham Horse Racing News

Some horse racing news: A 'promising' horse named Another Promise had its hopes of going to Cheltenham knocked when he finished last out of 16, beaten by 50 lengths, behind Polly Whitefoot in the Gosforth Decorating & Building Services Handicap Hurdle at Newcastle on his seasonal debut.

The horse travelled all right, but when Timmy Murphy asked him to make ground after the fourth-last he seemed gassed, and when brought under pressure there was still little response.

He gradually faded and trailed the field home in his own time. He could be horse racing again at the Queen Mother Champion Chase, where it's hoped he will do better.
