Cheltenham 2018–Day 1

1.30 Getabird will start as a short priced favourite at around 6/4. His form is hard to fault and if you don’t mind a short price he looks the most likely winner. A couple to consider at bigger odds are Paloma Blue (12/1) and Summerville Boy (7/1).

2.10 Footpad and Petit Mouchoir head the betting and obviously command respect. Given the heavy/soft going I just wonder if Saint Calvados could make all here.

2.50 Coo Star Sivola and Singlefarmpayment tick the right boxes in this handicap.  At a bigger price Yala Enki will appreciate the ground and is on form.

3.30 Buveur D’Air is a short price but looks the likely winner.  Charlie Parcs and John Constable are worth small each way interest at big prices.

4.10 It is hard to se beyond Apples Jade in this race.

4.50 Jury Duty is my selection

5.30 Any Second Now, De Potting Shed and Rather Be are my fancies for this handicap.
