Cheltenham festival

Recommended Posts

With the festival fast looming I'm looking for people's naps and their nbs.

My nap is the new one for the champion hurdle, it looks a great renewal

this year with 4 leading chances.

My nb Will be faugheen, not sure which race it will line up in but a great

chance whichever race it goes for.

All suggestions welcome and who knows we might unearth a wee gem

between us.

I can't wait to get torn into but will probably wait until we have some declarations.

Pretty low key this year Imo. No kauto, no sprinter sacre and ladbrokes refunding losing bets up to 25quid if hurricane fly wins or finishes 2nd in the champion hurdle makes ne wonder if the fly has a problem.

really like our Connor and Irving so far

No Cue Card either which could have had a good festival.

I noticed that with the fly, I'm just of the feeling the younger horses will run

the legs of the fly?

Perhaps that's what Ladbrokes are hoping for.

Beware of the favs curse in the supreme novices, Irving looks good but so have many

before who failed as the fav.

Im not convinced that McCain and Hobbs will make it this year, you would think

V Williams should dig out a handicap or 2 as her stable has been flying.

Maybe Rebecca Curtis might have a squeak with fishers.

Curtis for Hurdles and possibly Colin Tizzard for Chases, although it's not really been happening for him of late.

Worth having a look at anything Gordon Elliot sends over as well.

And you always have to keep an eye on that other up-and-coming trainer whose name escapes me at the moment.

Haha. The very one.

I think Rock on Ruby is a good bet for the ankle but it would suggest at

9yr old the stats are against it.

Seldom bet on these Grade 1 National Hunt races, the fields are too big. It's a bit of a lottery.

I find the graded races easier, it's the 24 runner handicaps that are a lottery

but I still kid myself on I can pick the winner ha.

Just had a look at the champion hurdle, only 11 left in the race so will be the smallest field for years. Looks a cracking race. If Mullins runs ANNIE POWER it would be a big clue as she has easier opportunities. I will probably back MY TENT OR YOURS and lay off for a profit in running,,will travel well and probably look like the winner at some stage before getting outbattled late on by ???
