Alex Hammond's best catches for the Cheltenham Festival – The Horse Race


Well, this time last year I wrote to you about the bad weather during the period up to the Cheltenham Festival as it was made worse by the Beast from the East.

In this time round we nearly had the problem of a successful winter with a bit of cold last month.

Having that thought, at long last the water has arrived and the day's saving with the land expected to be much more suited to the breeding season and at the time of writing (Thursday) it was said to be good for soft, software in places on all five routes. t

Therefore, by resuming a normal service, try to find out about finding some of the winners.

Tuesday's tests:

SKILLS SCHOOLS INCLUDING: t Fakir D officers. I've been strong to Joseph's young Brien for a long time, as bringing in the French has a lot of experience and it might be more appealing than it might be t into an ancient horse.

OUT RAC: Glen Forsa. What does Mick Channon's young casser like? The land has come for him, he moves well and comes here without fences. That run involves the sudden loss of Kalashnikov when he later fell to two miles in a reorganization of Kingmaker at Sandown last time.

ULTIMA HANDICAP CARE: I raised Vintage Clouds Last year it was my choice and it finished third at 7/1. I bet he won't be far away even from a mark off 144, which is 3 points higher than 12 months ago. T Sue Smith's horses are in good shape and at 20/1 it is much bigger than the market.

THE UNIBET EASTERN: Last year I put Buveur before me and twice it did it to stop the invalid problem? I think Apple Jade flight in the oil and it is said to be in the shape of her life.

LOTA OLBG MARES ’: The previous Jade from Apple looked certain in the last year but he could only complete a third Benie Des Dieux I won't be in the competition last year.

WE HAVE LAUNCH OF OPPORTUNITY FOR OFFICERS: Gordon Elliott's Cubomania It may be that these routes may be re-visited here. 20/1 with Sky Bet, which pays four places. Having won four of his 11 starting over fences, it was progressing well when the 50/1 price in the One Drinmore Level collapsed. apart. He had a number of shows this week, but he can go well despite the biggest pressure here.

NATIONAL NEWSLETTER: t With plenty of hype around OK Corral, I want to include Paul Nolan Discorama fair. It is 8/1 with Sky Bet and it was unlucky to fall at the last time in Naas last time in the race that Ballyward won when there was no opportunity. He came second in the album Martin Pipe last year, so there is a Fèis form, and there's plenty to see.

Wednesday statements:

CONTINUES NOVICES BALLYMORE: Samcro was a piper this year that was away, and he had to be. I have been fond of it Brewin upastorm For this season's time I won't change my mind, even though it finally falls in Cheltenham the last time when you look like the winner. Battleoverdoyen is the biggest worrying horse, which is unlike Samcro, has had here little change, despite the equal identity of the girl. – connections. Maybe for the first time at the price.

RSA CHASE: Is there another one that displays Percy hiding in the field? Santini did not have the right arrangements for this and I think that will go against her. I like Delta work and he hopes another winner for Gordon Elliott after being a good starting point for the week. He conquered Le Richebourg in Drinmore, where he graduated at Leopard City over Christmas. It gives the same way to Presenting Percy at least after winning the Pertemps Tour at last year's festival.

CUP CIR: Paul Nicholls believes he is Brio Conti at the Chupa Choral. It appears to be developing and out of a mark of 146 and with a good strike level (5 winners from just 11 start) it does it for me in an in-service train.



ALUMINUM (FRED WINTER) JUVENILE HANDICAP HURDLEAPMaybe Joe's best youngsters are Brien and I hope he will be clean with his youngsters (although the Sky Bet Supreme is not restricted to four year olds.) T ). Band Of Outlaws Band his producer here (what is the price of the Supreme, Boodles and Triumph struggling for the Sky Bet ?? trainer) and the horse is entering the race after it is the last two competitions to be won. This may be the first decision that might have been taken from barriers 139 and its trainer should have a good idea of ​​its potential to win young entrants. Another useful indicator.

* The news about me and I have written that Sir Hector has had a stone push, but the trainee is hopeful that he will get it ready for JCB Triumph Hurdle on Friday. It should not be a big problem if it is not too difficult.


JLT NOVICES POSITION: I'm very pleased with Colin Tizzard Lostintranslation. Ironically, Defi De Seuil runs here instead of the Arkle, despite Le Richebourg losing his Tuesday (Mar Defi, he is JP McManus). But still this should make Lostintranslation more valuable. It was struck fairly and squarely with that fight eventually, but Philip Hobbs' horse had a measurement at the previous time on this album on the Dipper Chase (where he was getting a weight). ). In fact, there are not many of them between them and we hope Lostintranslation will do real test of stamina which will play its strengths.

STEPS WITH APPLICATION: Sire Du Berlais Another major player in Gordon Elliott's role, he is a market leader and I think he is the next of the big Irish raiders to be able to run well here. Walking to freedom can be nine years old, but I think Jessica Harrington's horse has more to offer on this three-mile journey after a strong ceremony last year at Leopard City.

MAY RYANAIR: Piping it is a danger to be away from getting overboard (cutting to the front legs with a final leg) when it ends at second place to Simply Ned at Leopardstown over the Christmas. However, Arkle's successor last year is dangerous to leave and also in the hands of renowned musician Willie Mullins. Above, he should be dealing with the trip and Mullins seem to have been learning and working without him to keep the problem again. In fact, he said he might run it in Cheltenham without them too. Road To Respect was tested for the race rather than the Golden Cup, as trainer Noel Meade thought he was unable to get home in the last race last year when the fourth person came to the River Spey. Native American with war painted face. It is a huge risk and is currently in the shape of a trained trainer.

ALL SPEERS: t he is Paisley Park all the way for me is. I was fortunate enough to meet the horse at the garden of Emma Lavelle, owned by Andrew Gemmell a few weeks ago and I hope he is getting his connections. Paisley Park has been matured in this season and it's not pushed in four times. Penhill's involvement in the scheme is also a groundbreaking opportunity. Unfortunately, nothing like the 25/1 will tell me that it is grumpy.

BROWN BROADCASTING AND FLORAL PLAN: I have already been supportive Spiritofthegames in Dan Skelton. Back here He finished third place behind the character JLT Novices Chase contender Kidisart in his novices. That was in late January and as it is going very well, the gap between the fences should be fine. It was a good barrier, ending the fifth place in last year's Hurdle in the County, and it seems useful over fences too. This is only its fourth rate over the biggest barriers.

NATIONAL ROUTE LAUNCHED WITH DELIVERY PROJECTS TARTERSALLS: t Nicky Henderson's French software Epatante that is enough for this and entitled. She is a student at level one in her home country and is now working on two laundry doors in the UK for her new connections. She expected to receive things from time to time in Exeter. However, Paul Nicholls has a reasonable competition offering a little bit more in Posh Trish. It is very tough, even though giving 5 pounds for Epatante means it has to be.

FULKE WALWYN KIM MUIR CHALLENGE CUP: Drift stream being very well supported for Gordon Elliott, I think Jamie Codd is the best amateur man who makes the trip. He made his first attempt at Elliott after leaving Noel Meade, and his first trip for 22 months in Fairyhouse a month ago and running a strong race to finish his third. He has already appeared at the three Cheltenham Festivals with a bold exhibition to finish third place to Minella Rocco and an Aboriginal River in National Hunt 2016 when he received training from William Mullins.

Friday's Adjudications

JCB TRIUMPH HURDLE: Cheltenham Cheltenham would not have had a spark at the end with the brutality he had suffered County on Thursday he has made a few nerves the week before the Fèis. In the big scheme of things it should not be the main factor as its work is now done (like an athlete peaking on a big event). I don't yet promise my wings! Pic Dot includes French interest for Paul Nicholls. Sky Sports Racing French teacher Lauren Barbarin picked up this horse when we were working together a fortnight ago.

RANDOX HEALTH RENEWABLE: We don't know what's going to run, or what comes in, but here's a couple to watch out if they do. He may have a little knowledge, but a little Top Crook that he finally did nothing wrong with Newbury and that he is improving. Philip Hobbs trains him and I think one of his reels is able to run a race. Gumball struck Verdana Blue at Kempton at the end of last month, which was a surprise, but it might have been a boost of confidence that this young actor had to get back.

FOLLOW-UP TO ALBERT BARTLETT: t This looks at arranging a hard race (does the Fèis have a difficult one?), But Derrinross who are looking for Irish trainer Philip Dempsey if the land is soft enough. This horse has a fine engine, but be very much dependent on the ground, which is why he did not run from the end of December. The winner from a point to date has benefited from being built up to three miles under the rules of Sams Profile, second place second level, at level 1 with him.

Cashback. 1.30 Cheltenham. Every day of the Fèis.

CUP AT MAGNERS CHELTENHAM: Going with the Percy Show or not? Coneygree won the Gold Cup with just three previous trophies after him and pride and pride Pat Kelly runs five times over fences coming into this, so he knows it well. comparison. Despite his ability and love in Cheltenham, he is short enough in the promise, so I get the chance to The Aboriginal River to be the first from the Best Mate to win the Golden Cup. Indeed, his trainee Colin Tizzard has a strong hand in the blue robe caught by his Welsh Welsh winner. Maybe he paid back there at large prices.

CHASE FOXHUNTER AIG ST JAMES: Ucello Conti I have one (or five!) for me. It has revived the different place and Hunter Chase now has three trophies in a row for Gordon Elliott. He is capable of earning a big man and this may be a date.

JOHNNY HENDERSON'S YEARGive me a horse in a blog last week and one of Paul Nicholls's trainees was St Magic here. Nicholl really supported the project and hopes that the child will be five years better than the deadline at a time.

MARTIN PIPE VOLUME JOCKEYS VOICE: t Other lot and how that might be signed. It is better to follow the money, so boys are worse than each other Canardierwhich is lightly decorated and is not easy to avoid and has come in to support the race. It is trained by Dermot McLoughlin in Ireland and it looks as though it's going for a 7 year-old, who has been running for 8 hours. It didn't run from Cheltenham back in October and I mean that this means the handicapper has no other chance to put up. It is inserted into the Choral Choral and County Hurdle.
