Jonjo O’Neill has revealed that Refinement will run in the Royal & SunAlliance Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival next month.
The mare is also entered in the Coral Cup and the Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices’ Hurdle but will go for the longer race, for which she is 10-1 with Coral.
“She will go for the two and a half miler at Cheltenham,” said O’Neill.
The seven-year-old, who has finished second and fourth in the Champion Bumper, took her unbeaten run over hurdles to five with an eye-catching success at Huntingdon on Thursday.
“She looked like she did it very well and the further she was going, the more it suited her,” added O’Neill.
