Cheltenham mooted for Chef Des Obeaux

Connections say the Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle could be a potential target for Chef Des Obeaux at the Cheltenham Festival.

The Nicky Henderson-trained six-year-old secured a convincing victory at Kempton on Saturday in the Novices' Hurdle.

The manner of the win would appear to put Chef Des Obeaux in contention for a tilt at a Prestbury Park run-out, and Anthony Bromley, representing winning owners Sullivan Bloodstock Limited, says the Albert Bartlett is the most likely target.

"He might be one for the Albert Bartlett," he said, as reported by Sporting Life.

"He is a big baby still. He is going the right way and three miles really worked. I would like to think that was probably a nice trial for the Albert Bartlett.

"You saw the size of him and he will make a lovely chaser one day. Before the race I thought it was quite a good race and he has destroyed them."
