Day 4 Cheltenham Pointers

Day 3 was a good one for us with the highlights being taking the first two races of the day, Taquin Du Seuil coming home under McCoy at 9/1 and Fingal Bay winning at 8/1. Especially pleased for Fingal Bay as is a horse we have always admired and it is great to see him back to his best and showing what he is really made of. The day could have been a phenomenal if Annie Power could have upside More of That but it wasn't to be, and one of our best bets of the festival went down the pan. Tomorrow we have our best bet of the week in the shape of The Gold Cup, let's hope it makes up for Annie Power disappointment.

1.30 JCB Triumph Hurdle:

  Abbyssial 16/1 EW (4 places uni bet)

Not without question marks, especially with the faster ground and unknown but that is not to say won't get it and has shaped very well indeed on all last 3 starts in Ireland, winning a Grade 2 at Leopardston most recently. Should have more to come and with the extra furlong an added bonus looks a decent bet at the prices.

Plinth 18/1 EW (4 places unibet)

Interesting runner for Aidan O'Brien, and with just the two starts over hurdles to name offers promise of further improvement to come. Made a winning start under McCoy on penultimate start before racing a bit sloppily and with the cheekpieces added here has a good chance at again a good ew price, as with our first runner.

OFFERS

– Paddy Power are offering money back if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd in this race

2.05 Vincent OBrien County Handicap Hurdle:

  Arctic Fire 7/1 EW (5 places with several bookies)

Anybody who knows us well knows we love an unexposed horse and that comment applies to this Mullins/Walsh horse who has just the 4 UK starts under the belt. Highly regarded by connections, and performed with great credit in two Grade 1 races in Ireland over the winter.Had a break and steps up in trip with Ruby Wlash back on board for first time since first run and if can handle the occasion should be right there at the finish.

2.40 Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle:

 Kings Palace 4/1

The Mullins/Walsh horse at the top of the market is a fair favourite but price looks a tad too cramped for our liking and should have a fair old duel with our selection for David Pipe. This race could swing the jockey's standings in Tom Scu's favour if he can grab a win on Kings Palace, and with conditions to suit and having poved goes well at this track last two starts looks a healthy enough price to take a chance.

3.20 Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase :

  Bobs Worth 2/1 NAP

Personally would be a great result as have invested in the ante post prices, but at 2/1 still rates a superb chance and has to be our bet of the day. Bound to be a popular selection tomorrow and we just fancy to get the better of Silviniaco Conti who is bound to have his supporters, as he should do! Won this race last year in stupendous fashion, and given his Cheltenham record of 5 wins from 5 course visits its incredibly hard to look past the Nicky Henderson horse. Lacklustre reappearance at Haydock but showed the benefit of that pipeopener when beating First Lietenant in the Lexus a month later. Keep an eye out for those special offers which we will update on here as and when we get them but trading at over 2/1 on the exchanges don't take anything too short until the bookies all catch up.

4.00 CGA Foxhunter Chase Challenge Cup:

  Oscar Delta 10/1 EW (4 places with bet365 & Sky Bet so far)

Few would begrudge Jane Mangan making up for last year, when cruelly denied by a cruel twist of fete when she was unseated with the race all but won.Clearly been targeting this race for revenge this year by connections, and with two adequate warm up runs should be absolutely bang on for this. With a couple bookies paying out 4 places for ew prices, 10/1 is very generous indeed.There probably should be a few more bookies to follow suit.

4.40 Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle:

Leo Luna 20/1 EW (5 places with several bookies)

Moore family had their time in the sun earlier in the week but can finish with a flourish here and Joshua Moore can take victory for his dad this time. Returned from a few month on the sidelines to run an eye catching stormer and back in a handicap from a mark of 135 we just can't resist a bet.

 The Skyfarmer 16/1 EW (5 places with several bookies)

Won a class 3 handicap around here in December, pulling 4 lengths clear of 2nd and 31 lengths clear of 3rd on that day. Went to Ascot next and performed admiraly in a Grade 2 hurdle where ground did not look to suit, so coming back to Cheltenham and back on to better ground looks to have a superb chance tomorrow.

5.15 Grand Annual Chase Challenge Cup:

Raya Star 12/1 EW (5 places with several bookies)

been competing in grade 2 races of late and now entered into handicap for the Alan King team catches our eye.Only won a beginners chase to be talked of and will have to jump well to get involved but had a nice little pipe clenser at Newbury last month and should be bang on to make a bold challenge here.

 

We will be adding a few more bets and offers in here over night so do come back and check!
