Nicky Henderson claims Cheltenham cannot repeat 2012

Posted on | 0 Responses

Trainer Nicky Henderson has once again lined up a formidable team for the Cheltenham Festival, but he is adamant that 2012's record-breaking festival is "unrepeatable".

Henderson managed to not only notch up an unprecedented seven successes, one of his staff even scooped over £1 million betting on them.

The winners include stars of the sport Sprinter Sacre, Simonsig and Bobs Worth – and the seven victories meant Henderson is the winning-most trainer at the fixture.

After overseeing the triumphs last year, trainers such as Willie Mullins and Paul Nicholls will be hoping to have charges that can challenge further this year.

Henderson told BBC Sport that he can't see another seven-win performance, admitting he would "settle for one".

He commented: "It happened to us once and you can't see how it could happen again. Ok, there are seven that are capable of winning, but they can't all win – can they?"
