Dan Skelton previews his day four runners at the Cheltenham Festival
We have two runners on the last day of the Cheltenham Festival.
Third Time Lucki (13:55) runs in the County Hurdle. We opted for this race over the Supreme and I am glad we did as Appreciate It was very impressive on Tuesday.
This horse wants the type of race he is going to get – a fast run handicap. I have been really happy with his preparation. He looks great and I can’t wait to get into the race. We have a good record in it and the drying ground will suit.
Langer Dan (16:50) got into the Martin Pipe. You can never be sure when you run a horse quickly until he’s run, but if I was at all unhappy with him he wouldn’t be running.
He’s absolutely fine at home. He has to carry a 5lb penalty but we have to get on with it. I think the New Course will suit him and if he runs like he did at Sandown he is obviously a player.
