Cheltenham Festival Day 3 Each-way Lucky 15 Tips – 25/1, 16/1, 11/1 & 6/1 Bets
The third day of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival gives us another chance to bet on a lucky 15, and today’s selections come from the each-way markets, with some big odds selections included.
Pertemps Network Final (2.10pm) – Skandiburg
With 25 confirmed runners, some bookies will be offering as many as six places for this competitive affair. Last year’s winner lines up again here in Sire Du Berlais. After finishing outside of the top six in the race he used to qualify last year he has had to squeeze in an extra run this year, as well as shouldering 7lb more than in 2019 and can be opposed. One which appeals is Olly Murphy’s Skandiburg. Horses who were rated between 138 and 148 have won the last 9 renewals of this race and he sneaks just inside that with a mark of 139. In addition, he also has course and distance form when winning here on New Years Day. He will have to improve again, however, he has been kept fresh seemingly with this race in mind and can hopefully run well for our lucky 15.
Brown Advisory Plate (4.10pm) – Vision Des Flos
A race in which unexposed types can prosper, the Plate is another where up to six places will be available. Horses who race prominently have done well here in the past and one who could make his mark over fences is Vision Des Flos. Having been tried this season in graded company Colin Tizzard’s charge is dropped into handicap company here for the first time over fences. Last time out he was beaten a long way by Itchy Feet, however, he travelled well for a long way that day before tiring late on. He has something to find with those towards the top of the market but at 20/1 at the time of writing he is well worth a shot in this. Hopefully we will find him on a going day as he is a horse who Joe Tizzard described as having a lot of talent when everything clicks.
Mare Novice Hurdle (4.50pm) – Floressa
As a relatively new race, trends maybe are not the way to go here despite WIllie Mullins dominance. Nicky Henderson has an interesting contender in the shape of Floressa. In a big field such as this, it could be worth siding with a horse that has had a few starts and is a bit more battle-hardened than the rest. After a couple of battles with SIlver Forever, reversing the form second time round, she has also beaten Tolworth Hurdle runner up Jeremys Flame and ran well at Doncaster when stepped out of novice company, beaten into third that day when bullied out of it by Lady Buttons. That step into open company will hopefully have provided her with the know-how of how to win a race like this and at 6/1 she may be value in taking on favourite Minella Melody.
Kim Muir (5.30pm) – Ardlethen
The Thursday of The Festival is brought to a close with the stamina test that is the Kim Muir. Le Breuil currently heads the market, however, it is likely that this is his prep run before going on to contest the Grand National in April. Further down the market is Dan Skelton’s Ardlethen. He has spent his season taking on the likes of Sam Spinner, Danny Whizzbang and Two For Gold. He lost a shoe when beaten a fair way by Two For Gold and this step into handicap company from graded novice races could well suit. He has plenty of scope for improvement and should see out the trip. At 16/1 he completes our Thursday each way lucky 15.
