CELTIC Shot, Space Trucker, Rooster Booster, Accordion Etoile, Sizing Europe and Menorah are just a few of the winners of the StanJames.com Greatwood Hurdle that will be familiar to followers of the racing game. Now add to that list Old Guard, the most recent winner of one of the feature races of the Open meeting at Cheltenham.

Old Guard is trained by Paul Nicholls and was bred by Lord Rothschild. The son of Notnowcato raced in Lady Rothschild’s colours when trained by Roger Charlton at Beckhampton House but now carries the colours of The Brooks, Kyle and Stewart families.
