“Will be aged 7 to 10 years unless trained by D Pipe.  Will either have never run at Cheltenham before or will have strong placed course form. Last race will have been in a handicap over at least 3 miles but not necessary to have won a handicap chase.  Has competed in a G3 this season or has won a Cl2 this season.  At least two runs this season but may not have been seen for months.  Either has won a NH race over 3 miles or has top class placed form over at least that distance.  Will have finished at least 3rd in either of last two runs or is under 10/1. Headgear wearing very much in vogue recently.  Winning jockey a non-claiming amateur.  Wasn’t beaten favourite last time out.” Gaultstats

FIVE TO TAKE ON

MIN                             Tuesday 1.30               Supreme Novices Hurdle

Too much of his price is based on his connections and not the form in the book and there isn’t much of that!

ANNIE POWER           Tuesday 3.20               Champion Hurdle

One run in a three horse exhibition in twelve months and SHE is 7/4 to win a Championship?!?

BLACK HERCULES        Tuesday 4.40               4m NH Chase

Fell last time out is a dreadful stat and already disappointed twice at the Festival.

NO MORE HEROES     Wednesday 2.05         RSA

Needs ground Soft or worse and none of his form this season has been franked.

BRISTOL DE MAI         Thursday 1.30             JLT

Bit like NMH on Good ground this impeccable fencer could be done for toe!

 

Cheltenham Festival Handicaps

In order to win a handicap at Cheltenham I think you need all the right conditions and 10lb in hand!

No interest in Gigginstown horses

No interest in Roger Brookhouse horses

Mullins running horses with Graded form in handicaps

The Sundance Kid is bound to have a go at a couple.

Nicholls, Henderson, Hobbs, King, Skelton, Mulholland and Fry.

I will update and expand the list below over next week. The weights come out on Tuesday and hopefully a few firms will be NRNB on all races by then.

HANDICAPPERS with the right mark WITH Cheltenham entries

CARDINALD WALTER             Nicky Henderson             OR140h                       CORAL, COUNTY

CYRIUS MORVINIERE                 Ben Pauling                        OR135h                       COUNTY

Cyrius Moriviere – County Hurdle Trainer Ben Pauling talking to Ladbrokes “I’d put [his Tolworth Hurdle disappointment] down to the ground because he actually pulled up first time out at Stratford on soft ground where he stopped very quickly down the back straight to nothing. If he had been outclassed [that Sandown] he would have got tired in the last two furlongs, but once again, like at Stratford he just stopped dead three out. I just don’t think, even though he’s French-bred, that he handles the heavy ground at all. We switched him to a sounder surface up at Doncaster, and I don’t know what kind of race it was, but to win a Novice Hurdle under a penalty by 20 lengths on the bridle has got to be good in anyone’s book. He’s got a mark of 136, has the profile of an improving novice, he’s very tough, jumps well and deserves his place. Whether or not he will be troubling the judge is another matter. I think he’ll need 12 or 14lbs in hand to be winning a handicap at least. I couldn’t say he doesn’t but it would be more of a surprise if he won it than A Hare Breath.”
