Cheltenham 1.45 – Hatcher
He is turning up quickly after running over hurdles last week. Hurdles didn’t suit him. He ran well over course and distance a month ago in a similar chase and hopefully he can go and give a good account of himself again. He is definitely better over fences.
Cheltenham 2.20 – My Drogo
My Drogo makes his chase debut here which we are all very excited about. There’s only three runners in the race, but they are all very good horses. He jumps nicely at home, he’s ready to get started, and we are not afraid to go to Cheltenham races with him first time. We are really looking forward to it.
Cheltenham 3.30 – Kayf Hernando
He runs in a good Grade 2 Novice Hurdle. He won very nicely up at Carlisle races on his first start. He only had a couple of runs before then, and had a nice run in a bumper for us, but to go and beat a horse with the experience that the runner-up had at Carlisle was great. This is a nice race for him and it will point us in the right direction for the rest of the season.
Cheltenham 4.00 – Percy’s World
I would have to give Percy’s World an each-way chance. He is very consistent, the trip is good, and I think the track will be no problem. He’s got plenty of experience and he’s against novices. I wouldn’t say he’s 10lbs well in or anything like that but his experience definitely gives him an e/w chance here.
