Cheltenham Day 4


1.30 Defi du Seuil

2.10 Winter Escape

2.50 Wholestone is my selection. Monalee and Any Drama are others worth considering.

3.30 My two against the field are Native River and Sizing John

4.10 My idea of the 123 here is – 1. On the Fringe 2. Ask the Weatherman3. Pacha Du Polder

4.50 Lac Fontana looks well handicapped and his stable have a good record in this race.  No Comment and Runfordave could be the pair to chase him home.

5.30 Dandridge and Le Prezien are the two I like here.  Best outsider could be Gardefort

Cheltenham Day 3

1.30 Yorkhill is the likely winner and a worthy favourite.  I would also suggest a saver on Politologue.

2.10 The trio I would concentrate on are Golden Doyen, Impulsive Star and FRor Good Measure

2.50 Empire of Dirt and Sub Lieutenant are my fancies.

3.30 Ballyoptic and Lil Rockerfella look the each way value.

4.10 Diamond King is my selection.

4.50 Looking for one to beat the favourite here – Verdana Blue, Forge Meadow and La Bague Au Roi all make some appeal.

5.30 Southfield Royale

Diary: Cheltenham Day 2

1.30 Neon Wolfe (danger Bacardys)

2.10 I have a short list of 4 for this race – Alpha Des Obeaux, Belshill, Royal Vocation  and Might Bite.

My two against the field are Bellshill and Royal Vacation.

2.50 Mister Miyagi and Peregrine Run are my 2 against the field.  Tombstone is another I like.

3.30 Douvan should mwin this. Sir Valentino could run well at a big price.

4.10 Cantlow ios the selection with Cause of Causes the main danger.

4.50 Divin Bere and Neitzsche

5.30 The 3 I like here are Cause Toujours, Next Destination and Carter McKay.

Cheltenham Day 1

1.30 Melon is likely to be all the rage here.  He has only run once over hurdlkes however and I prefer the consistent Ballyandy. He won the Bumper at the Festival last season and comes here on the back of a win at Newbury.  The ground should suit as should the big field.

If you are looking for an outsider Pingshou look beter than his odds of 50/1.

2.10 It is impossible to oppose Altior in this. Charbel could be the one to chase him home.

2.50 Singlefarmpayment has good form at Cheltenham, albeit not at the festival. He looks to be on a reasonable mark.

Noble Endeavour comes here on the back of a win in the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown.  He has course form over hurdles. Lastly, Holywell is worth considering. He has strong form at past festivals.

These would be my 3 against the field.

3.30 Yanworth is the selection with a saver on Brain Power.

4.10 Apple Jade is the selection with a saver on Colin’s Sister.

4.50 My short list is Beware the Bear, Champers on Ice, A Genie in Abottle and Edwulf.

My selection is Edwulf.

5.30 My short list comprises Bun Doran, Gold Present, Hammersley Lake, Burtons Well and Two Taffs.

My selections are Hammersley Lake and Two Taffs.
