Cheltenham is flying past at a rate of knots – is it really Day Three already? We took a battering yesterday – it certainly was a day for the bookies. Plus the injury/whatever to Douvan was a disappointing blow. Was really looking forward to him putting in a dominant display.
Whether you’re ahead or behind though, it’s worth noting that there are still two days to go. It’s all very much still to play for.
Here’s Thursday’s Lucky 15 to attack with confidence. Lets turn the tide folks!
Thursday Recommended Offers: ↓
DISKO (1:30 – Cheltenham)
This is a race where you simply have to take Yorkhill on.
His jumping is a massive issue and the form he’s been showing isn’t adding up to much from his novice days. The one to take him on with is Disko, who has become a man over fences this year. His win in the Flogas in Ireland last time out is the strongest piece of form on offer in this race.
If he takes to Cheltenham, he wins.
EMPIRE OF DIRT (2.40 – Cheltenham)
Gordon Elliott is having a sensational week and it might be about to get better.
Empire Of Dirt should have enough staying power to repel Un De Sceaux, who has lots of doubts lingering regarding his performance. The ground will be too quick for him and does he stay this trip?
Empire Of Dirt is the bet.
COLE HARDEN W/O UNOWHATIMEANHARRY (3.30 – Cheltenham)
For this that like smashing into a short price then Unowhatimeanharry should be for you as he’s a worthy favourite that should win.
Therefore, the without market looks full of value as Jezki looks vulnerable as second favourite. Cole Harden meanwhile has plenty going for him and although has it to find with the favourite, should run him close.
SOUTHFIELD ROYALE (5:30 – Cheltenham)
This is a chance to get out of jail if you’ve had a bad day. Neil Mullholland’s chaser is handicapped to run a stormer as reports suggest. He finished fourth in a red hot four miler last season and has yet to recapture that form.
Today should be his day.
