CHELTENHAM DAY TWO. GENIUS MULLINS.
Let’s hope we can improve from yesterday.
Neptune Novice Hurdle 1 30 : I am already on a loser ante post on my main bet but I also suggested a one point win on A TOI PHIL at 12/1 and I am sticking with that.He is a very decent sort. He is only 15/2 now. He is trained by the great Willie Mullins. The maestro has also re routed YORKHILL to this race and he is a massive danger. I think either of those two can overturn the supposedly unbeatable favourite Yanworth. So the bet is A TOI PHIL with YORKHILL the big danger.
RSA Chase 2 10 : This column has been very sweet on ROI DES FRANCS before and he is great value at 12/1 for this event. He will find it very tough against the two hotpots but if he can get in to a good rhythm he is well capable of serving it up to them. One point win at 12/1 PP.
Coral Cup 2 50 : I just have to go for another Willie Mullins animal here. ARBE DE VIE looks to have a fair shot in this and is basically unexposed. He ran only once this season and that was in a chase but it is significant that connections have decided to come back to the smaller obstacles. One point win at 12/1 PP.
Champion Chase 3 30 : Willie Mullins is a genius and I have no doubt but that he has a champion in the shape of the odds on favourite UN DE SCEAUX. I would say the only danger to him is a fall or some other misfortune. The price that he is though means we have to look for value elsewhere and where better than Mullin’s other representative FELIX YONGER. He is very talented too and can chase the good thing home. 1 point on FELIX in the betting without the favourite market at 5/1 with PP.
Cross Country Chase 4 10 : Enda Bolger can take this race but with which one. He has the warm favourite in Josies Orders but I am going to back his other two representatives. One point win on QUANTITATIVEEASING at 15/2 and one point win on CANTLOW at 16/1 with PP.
Juvenile Handicap Hurdle 4 50 : CAMPEADOR was not too far behind some really smart sorts over the Christmas period and he has apparently been working very well coming into this. One point win at 9/1.
Champion Bumper : This is getting really boring but I have to go for Willie Mullins again in a race that he loves to win. He has any amount of chances as he is mob handed but the one I like best is AVENIR DUNE VIE. He will take all the beating. One point win at 8/1 PP.
Best of luck…
