Our ambassador Dan Skelton talks us through his runners at Cheltenham

| 26.10.2017

Cheltenham’s busy weekend schedule continues with a full card this afternoon.

Our man Dan Skelton has plenty of runners to look out for.

Take it away Dan…

We’ve got Bedrock in the 14:35 and he’s the highest rated horse in the race and I hope to think he would take all the beating.

Bangor put him spot on and we were due to meet Defi Du Seuil in this which is why we got some practice in.

Cobra De Mai has got the experience now and won very well last time out. He runs in the 15:10, has a nice weight, and the ground should be perfect for him.

Two Taffs is just behind one of Paul’s on ratings in the 16:20 but he ran nicely around the track at the festival, before winning at Ayr.

He’ll love the ground on Saturday and will be using this race as a springboard to the BetVictor.

In the Pertemps Handicap Hurdle at 15:45, we have Its’afreebee and Stick To The Plan.

Freebee has lost his way but we will try three miles over hurdles with him and hope to relight the fire. He gave us some great days and we can’t forget that.

We also have Stick To The Plan in this race. He likes decent ground and I’d hope he’d run very well here of a small weight. He’d have won last time out but we don’t talk about that anymore!

Richard loves his sport, especially if it involves the sound of tyres screaming around a race track. He's not fussy though and his '90s Premier League nostalgia and knowledge of team nicknames is tough to match.
