CHELTENHAM DAY 3

For the Turners Novice chase we have ZANAHIYR who is probably more exposed over fences than most of these but is a tough old boot when it comes to Cheltenham. He deserves to out run his odds and has been improving for his experience and will have Jack Kennedy in the saddle.

We only qualified two horses in the Pertemps this year and both go to the final. CLEATUS POOLAW has some very nice form and could potentially be a graded horse hiding in a handicap, Jack has chosen to ride him. FAROUK D’ALENE should appreciate the conditions on offer and comes here fresh. Rob James rides and claims 7lbs.

CONFLATED is our sole runner in the Ryanair and can put his past two runs behind him. He is a top class horse and will handle conditions coming back in trip. Jack Kennedy is booked to ride.

The conditions have lined up nice for TEAHUPOO as he should enjoy a tough slog with Jack Kennedy booked to ride. SIRE DU BERLAIS won’t be so keen on the conditions but he is a superstar and hopefully he gets a clear run with Mark Walsh in the saddle.

SAINT FELICIEN goes in the plate with a decent chance and should like the tough conditions with Jack Kennedy booked to ride. RIAAN has improved for each run and has Danny Gilligan in the saddle claiming 3lbs. EMBITTERED rounds off the trio and could have a decent each way chance with Rob James claiming 7lbs.

BRIGHTERDAYSAHEAD is our big shout of the festival. She has a lot of pressure on her back but we just hope for a good clean run with Jack booked to ride.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN has gone up 12lb since his last win and is made for a National. Barry O’Neill has been booked to ride. Cool Survivor will need a career best to finish in the frame here with Harry Swan booked to ride. FAKIR D’ALENE will also need a career best but has Rob James claiming 3lbs.
