Top Tips for Paddy’s Day at Cheltenham

Top Tips for Paddys Day at Cheltenham 2019

Another wet and windy day at Cheltenham but that will not dampen the St.Patricks Day spirit at the Festival.

In today’s opening race, The JLT Novices Chase, there is little between the top horses, Barry Geraghty’s Defi Du Seuil at 3/1 and Colin Tizzard’s Lost in Translation at 7/2 judging on their previous encounters but with the going soft it is certainly more in the latter’s favour. However it would remiss to discount Vinndication and also Kildasart who won over a slightly longer race on this track back in January. Bet HERE

In the 2.10pm Pertemp Final Championship Hurdle, there is full field of contenders for this title, the hotly tipped fav is Barry Geraghty’s Sire Du Berlais at 5/1. He is the stallion of Don Poli, out of a more who won a Grade 1 over fences and stayed two and a half miles. Even though this is just his tenth start he proved at Leopardstown he can stay at 3 miles and can only get better. But don’t discount Jessica Harrington’s Walk to Freedom at 14/1 who has the top weight and Not Many Left at 16/1. Also in with shot is Flemcara at 18/1 and Samburu Shujaa at 12/1 , both impressed when they won their recent qualifiers. First Assignment at 11/1 scored here twice in the Autumn and has a decent level of form since. Bet HERE

Today’s headliner race- the Ryanair Chase goes to post at 2.50pm and will be a heavily contested event with several horses with the capability to win. Noel Meade’s Road to Respect tops the betting at 7/2 who shares the highest rating at 169 however Ruby Walsh on Footpad at 9/2 could do the business. Last year’s winner Un De Sceaux hasn’t had great form since winning this race last year. Don’t discount the ladies in this race, Monalee ridden by Rachel Blackmore at 9/2 or Frodon ridden by Briony Frost at 15/2. Bet HERE

In the 3.30pm Stayers Hurdle the banker for this race is Paisley Park at 161/100 given his win in the Cleeve Hurdle, Faugheen is rated just below Paisley Park, could he add a win in the Stayers to his accolades? Jessica Harrington’s Super Sundae is 9/1 shouldn’t be discounted either, also if Black Op can recapture his Albert Bartlett form he could be a contender. Bet HERE

The Stable Plate goes to post at 4.10pm and Nicky Henderson’s Janicka is the bookies fav at 4/1 however David Pipe has won it three times in the last nine outings and his contender this year Eamon An Cnoic is a promising prospect at 11/1. Bet HERE

The Mare’s Novices Hurdle at 4.50pm see’s Nicky Henderson’s Epatante top the betting at 9/4 with a solid record and one Henderson has long said she will be winner, this is her first time with a hood so this should help her focus. Ruby Walsh is riding a Willie Mullins mare –My Sister Sarah, could be in with a shot given Mullin’s excellent track record with mares. Bet HERE

In the closing race of St.Patricks Day at Cheltenham, Gordon Elliots’s Measure of My Dreams tops the betting at 4/1 in the Challenge Cup Handicap Steeple Chase. He has good course form after chasing home Minella Rocco and Native Rival in the National Hunt Chase a few years ago. His stablemate Its All Guesswork at 12/1 could prove to be serious contender after running a blinder over hurdles last time out and will relish this test of stamina. Bet HERE
