What are the horses Harry Redknapp is running at Cheltenham Festival 2023? | The Sun

HARRY REDKNAPP will tackle Cheltenham Festival looking to land some winners on the biggest racing stage of all.

The former Spurs and West Ham boss has enjoyed much success on the racetrack in recent years.

But he could pocket a small fortune should one of his three runners come good at Prestbury Park – and get the better of Alex Ferguson's in the process!

First up will be Back On The Lash in the Cross Country at 4.10pm on Wednesday.

Trained by Martin Keightley, the nine-year-old will look to upset Gordon Elliott's market leaders Delta Work and Galvin in the marathon slog.

Back On The Lash is a course and distance winner, claiming the trial for this race back in January.

He was ridden by Sean Bowen again that day and is a best-price 16-1 to make it two in a row.

The horse has been in great form recently, a narrow third, again at Cheltenham, and runner-up at Worcester coming before that.

Redknapp is one of four co-owners of the horse, who has nine wins from 24 career runs and earnings of just under £100,000.

Victory in the Cross Country would be worth £39,023.

Redknapp will then run two in the Plate at 4.10 on Thursday.

First up is apple of Redknapp's eye Shakem Up'Arry.

Trained by in-form Ben Pauling, Luca Morgan gets the ride in the 2m4½f handicap chase worth £67,524.

Shakem Up'Arry protected his mark of 139 with a fifth-length finish last time out.


Before that he was a strong three-and-a-quarter-length winner over Tile Tapper at Exeter last December.

His form figures prior to that read 3-2-3-1 and he runs with a chance.

Redknapp will also have Bowtogreatness in the same race, who has just snuck in at the foot of the weights.

Owned jointly with Sarah Pauling, the seven-year-old was pulled up last time out and last of five before that.

But that was in a Grade 1 won by Brown Advisory fav Gerri Colombe so it was far from disgraceful.

His last win was in January 2022at Leicester so he'll need to fully exploit his lowly mark to make an impact in this race.
