In week five of our Eye On Cheltenham series, we bring you the notable Cheltenham Festival market movers from between November 22nd and November 29th.

This week, viewers were treated to two fantastic days of racing at Newbury, where Le Milos won the Coral Gold Cup for Harry and Dan Skelton. We were also treated to a superb card at Newcastle on Saturday, with big-race action taking place at Gowran Park and Navan over the weekend.

Here are 15 winners from the last seven days who've made significant moves in the Cheltenham Festival betting markets.

Constitution Hill

In his eagerly-awaited comeback on Saturday, Constitution Hill blew his rivals away with a dominant victory in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle. Nicky Henderson's Supreme winner was already the favourite for the 2023 Champion Hurdle, and was cut into 4/7 across the boards following his stunning victory at Newcastle.

L'Homme Presse

Venetia Williams' L'Homme Presse also returned to action at Newcastle, holding on from the front to carry 12-00 to victory in the Rehearsal Handicap Chase. Last season's Brown Advisory Chase winner was then made the 7/1 second-favourite to win the 2023 Cheltenham Gold Cup.


In a thrilling renewal of the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury on Friday, Champ held off fellow ten-year-old Paisley Park to return to winning ways. Champ was then cut into 12/1 for the Stayers' Hurdle by Betfair, with Paisley Park also coming into 20/1.

Jet Powered

Friday's card at Newbury was opened in style by Jet Powered, who surged to an impressive victory on his debut under rules. Nicky Henderson's novice was cut into 6/1 for the 2023 Supreme Novices' Hurdle, where only Facile Vega sits ahead of Jet Powered in the betting.


Gavin Cromwell's youngster edged out Imagine and Spanish Harlem to record his second hurdles victory at Gowran Park this weekend. Inothewayurthinkin was then cut into 20/1 by Betfair to win the 2023 Supreme.

Kalanisi Star

In the following race at Gowran Park, Kalanisi Star saw off Willie Mullins' Pink In The Park to open his account over hurdles. Oliver McKiernan's charge entered the betting for both the Supreme and the Ballymore at an opening price of 25/1. 

Grangeclare West

Despite drifting from 6/5 out to 2/1 before the off, Grangeclare West marked his return to action with a runaway 13-length maiden hurdle victory at Navan on Sunday. Willie Mullins' star was then slashed in the betting for the Ballymore Novicess Hurdle, with bet365 now offering a top price of 10/1.

Dawn Rising

Another mover in the Ballymore market was Dawn Rising, who upset American Mike to land the Grade Three for novices at Navan. Joseph O'Brien's winner was cut from 33s into 10/1 for the Ballymore by bet365, as American Mike - who scoped dirty after the race - drifted out to 14/1.

Stay Away Fay

Stay Away Fay followed in the footsteps of Bravemansgame and Stage Star by winning the two-and-a-half-mile novice hurdle at Newbury last Friday. Paul Nicholls' newcomer entered the betting for both the Ballymore and the Albert Bartlett at 25/1.

Favori De Champdou

Gordon Elliott saddled the first three winners at Thurles on Thursday. The third of his winners was Favori De Champdou, who entered the Albert Bartlett betting at 25/1 following his second-straight win over hurdles.

Luccia ran out an impressive winner of the opening Listed Hurdle on Coral Gold Cup day at Newbury. Nicky Henderson's budding star was then made the new 4/1 favourite for the 2023 Mares' Novices' Hurdle by QuinnBet.

Perseus Way

Runner-up to Scriptwriter on his first hurdles start at Cheltenham earlier this month, Perseus Way bolted up by 24 lengths to win his first race for Gary Moore at Leicester this weekend. Formerly trained on the flat by Owen Burrows, Perseus Way was cut into 20/1 to win the Triumph Hurdle by Unibet.

Fil Dor

Following a laboured effort on his reappearance over hurdles, Fil Dor bounced back to winning ways on his chase debut at Navan on Sunday. Gordon Elliott's four-year-old is now a 12/1 shot to win the 2023 Arkle Challenge Trophy.

Classic Getaway

After Journey With Me fell at the second-last, Classic Getaway surged past odds-on favourite Minella Cocooner to open his account over fences at the first time of asking. Following that victory at Gowran Park on Saturday, Willie Mullins' charge joined Minella Cocooner at 10/1 in the Unibet's betting for the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase.


Zambella took advantage of a surprisingly poor run from Gordon Elliott's Riviere D'Etel to win her sixth Listed chase at Carlisle on Sunday. Fourth in the race last year, Nigel Twiston-Davies' star was quickly cut into 14/1 by Unibet to win the 2023 Mares' Chase.
