JCB Triumph Hurdle Tip (1.30pm)
When winning by thirteen lengths in his first and only start for trainer Paul Nicholls at Kempton last month, Solo was promoted to favouritism for this 2m1f hurdle. This galloping track may suit his racing style even more but Goshen has yet to be tested in three races over the smaller obstacles and will be difficult to beat.
Allmankind will be another formidable opponent and is also unbeaten over hurdles. He is also a course and distance winner but had to work for his latest nine-lengths success at Chepstow in heavy ground.
Tip – Goshen to Win (11/4 with Ladbrokes)
Randox Health County Hurdle Tip (2.10pm)
This two-miles handicap hurdle can be a nightmare for any serious punter, but second place in a bunch finish for the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury last time suggests Ciel De Neige could also be prominent in this contest. He was favourite that day and the Willie Mullins trained horse was just beaten by Pic D’Orphy from the Paul Nicholls stable. As an each-way contender.
Tip – Ciel De Neige to Win (8/1 with bet365)
Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle Tip (2.50pm)
Monkfish should be a leading player in what could be a competitive renewal of this three-miles novice hurdle. He has easily won his last two races in Ireland over similar distances and is a lightly raced 6-year-old. Another Irish contender will be Latest Exhibition who has won three of four races over hurdles and was placed second in the other over two miles. His performance when scoring over 2m6f in a Grade 1 event at the Dublin Festival was particularly encouraging.
Harry Senior is likely to be among the English challengers and he won at Cheltenham on his latest appearance over an extended 2m4f. His performances this season suggest he will appreciate this extra distance, while course winner Thyme Hill has yet to race over this trip but he has won all three races this term.
Tip – Latest Exhibition to win (4/1 with William Hill)
Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup (3.30pm)
When winning at Tramore on New Year’s Day last season, Al Boum Photo followed that victory by winning the 3m2f Cheltenham Gold Cup. He won that race by the same winning distance this year and bids for a repeat performance at the Festival. He will be opposed by Santini who has won both races this term since finishing second in the 2019 RSA Chase. His win at Cheltenham last time was decent form but runner-up Bristol De Mai has never previously won in several outings on this course.
Among the other challengers, Irish raider Kemboy is multiple Grade 1 winner but has failed in three previous visits to the Festival while dual ‘King George’ Clan Des Obeaux winner had yet to prove himself at Cheltenham. LostIntranslation could prove a live outside bet after beating course specialist Bristol De Mai at Haydock but he may have been feeling the effects of that effort when pulling up in the ‘King George’. Delta Work is another horse to consider after winning two Grade 1 chases in Ireland this term, but a third-placed effort in the 2019 RSA is a slight concern.
Tip – Al Boum Photo to win (4/1 with bet365)
St James’s Place Foxhunters Chase Tip (4.10pm)
Hazel Hill won twice over course and distance last season including a four lengths victory in this 3m2f contest. A repeat performance will be attempted but he was beaten by Minella Rocco last month at Wetherby when conceding 4lb in weight. The latter horse has been transformed since becoming a hunter chaser winning both starts and he was second in the 2017 Cheltenham Gold Cup. Irish raider Billaway will be another contender after winning last time at Naas and second-placed horse last season Shantou Flyer should not be overlooked after preparing for this race by scoring by more than twenty lengths at Fakenham last month.
Tip – Billaway to win (6/1 with bet365)
Grand Annual Handicap Chase Tip (4.50pm)
Paul Nicholls has targeted both Capeland and Greaneteen for this extended two-miles chase. The former horse has raced mostly at Ascot since a poor performance in the JLT Novices’ Chase last season while the latter has won five of his last six races and was an easy winner of three-runner event at Fakenham last time. He also beat nine other opponents when winning the Scottish Champion Chase last month. There is also much to like about Paloma Blue who has been placed in three races this season and was an unfortunate second over 2m1f at Leopardstown last month.
Tip – Greaneteen to Win (4/1 with bet365)
Each-way – Paloma Blue (12/1 with 88Sport)
Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle Tip (5.30pm)
The final race of the meeting is a 2m4f handicap hurdle which is always competitive. Gordon Elliott has earmarked The Bosses Oscar for this race with the 5-year-old gelding winning two of his four starts this term and finishing second in the others. He may have won his last contest but for a last hurdle mistake when well clear of the remainder. Stable companion Column Of Fire is also consistently placed and should be a contender whereas Espoir De Romay won last time at Wincanton when carrying 12st and should not be underestimated.
Tip – The Bosses Oscar to Win (11/1 with William Hill)
Each-way – Espoir De Romay (25/1 with William Hill)
