Aston Martini geared up for the Sandown challenge

Aston Martini, an undefeated mare, is all set to secure a spot in the prestigious Weatherbys Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide Jane Seymour Mares' Novices' Hurdle at Sandown on Thursday. 

This race has served as a launchpad for Love Envoi and You Wear It Well in the previous two seasons, and this year's edition seems equally promising. Aston Martini, hailing from the stables of renowned trainer Nicky Henderson, recently tasted victory at Lingfield but faced disqualification due to causing interference. However, the decision was overturned after an appeal by Aston Martini's connections. 

Racing manager Liz Rutter, representing the Henry Ponsonby syndicate, expressed immense excitement about the mare's unbeaten record and her continual progress. Henderson also fields another strong contender, Either Or, who triumphed at Warwick last month. The race also features notable participants such as Smiling Getaway, Cherie D'Am, Little Miss Dante, Springtime Promise, and Jeune Belle, making it a highly competitive affair.
