Well a shame to lose Elixir De Nutz from the Supreme, just after I had posted, but that left us three solid bets and ROKSANA delivered at 10/1 for us, even if it was a shade fortunate, with the favourite going well and coming down at the last.
VIDEO | Finding Winners On Day 2 Of The Cheltenham Festival
On to Day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival and just two races I am getting involved in today.
1:30 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle
A competitive race again this year but BATTLEOVERDOYEN has done little wrong in three runs this season, and went into my notebook after beating Sams Profile at Naas at the start of January. A race that Gordon Elliott targets and won with Samcro last year.
RP TIP: BATTLEOVERDOYEN – 2pts to win at 7/2
2:10 RSA Novices’ Chase
I am sticking with SANTINI who will love conditions and be able to make amends for his Boxing Day 3rd in the Kauto Star Novice Chase at Kempton where he seemed to get caught out by the sharp track and this test will be perfect for him.
RP TIP: SANTINI – 2pts to win at 3/1
3:30 Champion Chase
I can’t oppose ALTIOR but I can’t back him at 2/5 either, so I will watch and enjoy him romping to victory.
