The Cheltenham Festival 2017 - STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH!
Today's trading tipster is Ian.
1,30 Neptune Novices Hurdle
The race revolves around Neon Wolf, his trainer thinks the world of him, the manner of his Haydock victory looked flawless. Messire Des Obeaux could be the one to give him most to think about. Willloughby Court & Keepers Hill will be desperate for overnight rain whilst Bon Papa is very much the dark horse.
Bet - Neon Wolf - Don't bet - Bacardys
2.10 RSA Chase
A poor renewal and a shock could be on the cards, Marinero could out run his odds. Might Bite is a very dubious favourite and not for me. Acapella Bourgeois would be the one to beat if it was softer ground however If Whisper can put it all together he is tough, talented and runs the course well
Bet - Whisper - Don't bet - Might Bite
2.50 Coral Cup
Tombstone has big questions to answer on this ground. Kalondra & River Frost were both impressive last time and look progressive however former JLT winner Taquin De Seuil of a mark of 148 looks sure to go close for the shrewd Jonjo yard. Next best is Peregrine Run who will love the ground and his win back here in November in a grade 2 novice is some of the best on offer
Bet - Taquin De Seuil / Peregrine Run - Don't Bet - Tombstone
3.30 Queen Mother Champion Chase
Douvan will win this with his eyes closed doing handstands, no question and can't be opposed. Garde La Victoire may chase him home.
Bet - Garde La Victoire *Betting W/O Douvan*
