Im sure the original plan wasnt a Cheltenham winner but a general question on the subject:

How detrimental is it to have jumps winners on a mares page when the plan is top 2 year olds and the Guineas?!!

It's not exactly popular S S.

Obviously if your second dam is Courtly Dee or Best in Show then I wouldn't be too worried! It does all depend on the strength of your page as to how much a buyer thinks he/she can wear N.H. form in a pedigree, and it's a very personal thing.

I bought a hurdle winner a few years ago who had a useful bit of hurdle type although she wasn't a particularly good hurdler. She had won two on the flat though and I think I would have got away with it if the quality of her foals had been stronger. As we say endlessly on here, if you pull great looking horse out of it's box at the sales then there's a ready market. If you don't then the N.H. form is another blot that helps seal your fateCry.
