#startracking Cheltenham Day Three Thursday March 14th

Can’t find a winner but if you need a 3rd,4th or 5th I’m your man! Disappointed with Nap horse More of That getting turned over and probably my wallet speaking but Geraghty had the horse in more positions than the Kama Sutra and for what it’s worth I didn’t think he was too clever on Yanworth when he gave up the outside to no one! Onwards and upwards!


Race 1 1.30pm JLT 2m 4f Novices Chase

Single (s) Garde La Victoire (*) and Three Musketeers (*e/w) where free bet if 2nd or 3rd

Race 2 2.10pm Pertemps Network 3m Listed Hcp Hurdle

Champion jockey elect Richard Johnson taking the ride further boosts my confidence in main selection If In Doubt who will benefit from a creepy-creepy, fast and late ride from Tricky Dicky.

If In Doubt (Three star***win) Mall Dini (two star**win) Our Kaempfer (one star*win)

Race 3 2.50pm RyanAir 2m 5f Chase

Heartbreak. What the hell is a 90% fit Vautour doing here?

Race 4 3.30pm World Hurdle

Thistlecrack looks a standout on this seasons form. What happens when push comes to shove?

Saphir du Rheu (**e/w)

Race 5 4.10pm Brown Advisory Plate G3 2m 5f Handicap Chase

Thought I had this race cracked with  Johns Spirit and Stilletto but I’m going to take them both on as they head the market!! Johns Spirit because it’s the New course not the Old and Stilletto is too much a novice in a field of 24 for his fragile fencing. So back to the drawing board and I’ve come up with two against the field. Paul Nicholl’s Art Mauresque (two star** e/w) and in-form Nigel Twiston Davies’s dodgy jumper Little Jon (one star* each way. Both open to improvement, both have had a look at Cheltenham and are in the right weight and ratings bracket.

Race 6 4.50pm Mares Novices Hurdle No Interest. Let’s see if Limini iz the biz!

Race 7 5.30pm Kim Muir Amateur Riders 3m 1f+ 0-145 Handicap Chase

Really wanted to make The Job is Right the main selection but his pilot is an eight race maiden! Cause of Causes has the services of Mr JJ Codd and can act as backstop but the winner is Silvergrove (two star**win). Front runs, jumps well, improving, hard as nails. Cause of Causes (one star*win) and on these terms, on this course it has to be The Giant Bolster (one star*win).



Race 1 1.30pm 4yo Triumph Hurdle

Single (s) Sceau Royal and Footpad where free bet if 2nd or 3rd

Race 2 2.05pm County 2m 1f G3 Handicap Hurdle (11st 12lb topweight = OR146ish) OR137ish

One of my favourite races of the year. Under 16/1, second season unexposed hurdler

Look for 5 or 6 places and just one selection or

Selection + ½ Saver + ½ Saver     Modus/Wait For Me/Superb Story

Race 3 2.40pm Alfred Bartlett 3m Novices Hurdle

BARTERS HILL is a warm favourite.

Check out “without market”. Select a “place” horse for SP orientated competitions. Gangster/Ballydine

Race 4 3.20pm Gold Cup

Without Vautour it’s no bet. Love to see Cue Card win.

Race 5 4.00pm Foxhunters

Put the kettle on! Skybet just (Tues. 8th March) gone 10/3 On The Fringe. Had to be backed! It Came to Pass?
