Day three proved tricky again. Thistlecrack was a confident selection who did the business in fine style, however the attempt to find value alternatives to Vautour and Limini proved costly. Sometimes it’s best to just keep it simple, however there’s still one more day left and hopefully an ante post bet to come off!
The big race of the festival is nearly here. The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the race they all want to win and there’s a field of nine all bidding to capture the prestigious prize. It’s a high quality renewal and, like last year, should be a race to saviour.
The second day of the festival was largely frustrating. Every selection was well backed in the market, however it was only Sprinter Sacre who obliged. Still, it was magnificent to see him regain his Champion Chase crown and that will prove one of the best moments of the week. We dust ourselves off now and head in to day three.
