THOMMO followed up his FOUR winners on Wednesday with another THREE on Thursday, let's hope he can end the Festival in similar style.

1.30pm Triumph Hurdle

SIR EREC (1.30) will be popular in doubles and trebles as he looks a class apart in the JCB Triumph Hurdle. After winning a Listed event on the Flat at Limerick (soft) last October, Sir Erec was sent to Ascot on Champions Day.

Quite well supported in the market, he finished an honourable third to Stradivarius and the son of Camelot has won both his races over hurdles for Joseph O’Brien. Gardens Of Babylon is the second-string of JP McManus and may get closer to Sir Erec wearing first-time cheek-pieces.

2.10pm County Hurdle

WHISKEY SOUR (2.10) led at the final flight before finishing third in last year’s Randox Health County Handicap Hurdle and should again be in the shake-up under Ruby Walsh.

Willie Mullins also saddles Cut The Mustard and the very interesting Mr Adjudicator. This one ran Farclas close in last year’s JCB Triumph Hurdle and hasn’t been seen since chasing hone Espor D’allen at Naas 125 days ago.

Monsieur Le Coq may have gone to the front too soon before being reeled in by Malaya in last Saturday’s Imperial Cup and regular rider Lizzie Kelly is now back on board. The five-year-old is at the right end of the weights and should go well.

2.50pm Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle

The Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle is no place for the faint-hearted and COMMANDER OF FLEET (2.50) has looked a tough nut in winning three of his four races for Gordon Elliott and edged out Rhinestone in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown last month.

Derrinross is on a hat-trick and likes to grind it out from the front, while Rhinestone is 2lb better off with Commander of Fleet and must come into the reckoning.

Best of the home team may be the Rebecca Curtis-trained Lisnagar Oscar, second to Rockpoint here in mid-December before racking up victories at Chepstow and Haydock.

3.30pm Cheltenham Gold Cup

PRESENTING PERCY (3.30) can win the Magners Gold Cup for Pat Kelly and Davy Russell.

The eight-year-old is unbeaten in two runs at the Festival, landing the 2017 Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle and strolling home in last year’s RSA Chase. Much has been made of Presenting Percy’s light campaign, having scored over hurdles on his only seasonal start at Gowran Park, but he has always gone well fresh in the past.

Native River will be favoured by any rain and was a very game winner from Might Bite 12 months ago. His preparation has gone smoothly and he must be in with a big shout, although the strong wind has been drying out the track.

4.10pm Foxhunter Chase

UCELLO CONTI (4.10) has discovered a new lease of life for Gordon Elliott and is unbeaten in 2019.

The 11-year-old ran sixth in the 2016 Grand National so stamina is not an issue in the 3m 2f Foxhunters’ Chase. Stand Up And Fight represents the strong Enda Bolger and JP McManus team.

4.50pm Grand Annual Handicap Chase

MAGIC SAINT (4.50) had pace-making Gino Trail in his grasp from a long way out at Wincanton and a 7lb rise isn’t insurmountable in the Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Challenge Cup. He remains quite unexposed for Paul Nicholls and is the likely favourite.

Whatswrongwithyou is progressing with every run and he is Nicky Henderson’s sole representative in the race named in honour of his father.

5.30pm Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle

DALLAS DES PICTONS (5.30) has the potential to become a huge last-race gamble in the 26-runner Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle as he was an impressive winner on his handicap debut and remains unexposed for the Elliott yard.

The Irish looks like dominating and Jessica Harrington’s Discordantly makes his handicap debut after three solid runs in maidens. He wasn’t beaten far by Fakir D’oudairies at Cork in January and has gone fairly close in his last runs in huge fields.

  2. hibee1 2 years ago

    Thanks everyone yesterday,thanks mr fixit also.

    My third and final tip of the festival runs in the county hurdle.
    I know this race has been the plan for this horse all season, i was told in early december to back him for cheltenham just before his run at aintree. I was told he would be given a wind op which he duly was just before christmas.
    He ran a credible race in last seasons champion hurdle, that race was obviously a step too far and this race seems much more his level and if the wind op has improved him like i would have expected he should run very well today.
    I have tried to find out about his prep for the race but unfortunatley i was unable to find anything of note do i am in the dark to how he has come on and trained since the wind op.
    I am obviously on at much bigger ew odds but the 11-1 that was there last night looks still worth taking.

    Chtibello 11-1
    cheltenham 2.50

    I did hear a little whisper on course yesterday for minds eye in the grand annual for today he is available at 12-1, i havnt decided if i will play yet myself i will probly wait to have a look at him in the paddock.

    Good luck to you all.

  3. double carpet 2 years ago

    Some cracking shouts yesterday none better than Busstops 50/1. Well done Busstop and all others who made a profit.
    My NAP at least won but I wasn’t very confident on the others so kept stakes modest but today is a whole new ball game.

    1.30 Sir Erec / Tiger Tap Tap ew
    Waiting on him to land a treble with Paisley Park and Tiger Roll so hopefully he can do the bizz today and on form is the one to beat. I also think Tiger Tap Tap was a little unlucky when boxed in lto and can give SE most to think about

    2.10 Mr Adjudicator ew
    Willie Mullins has won this race in 2 of the last 4 years each time Townend was the jockey. MA comes here fresh as a daisy having not run since Nov when 2nd to Espoir D’allen, form which has taken a huge boost this week

    2.50 Commander of Fleet ew
    5yr olds don’t have a great record in this race but he’s a dour Stayers and ground wont be an issue

    3.30 Presenting Percy NAP
    I am absolutely convinced PP will win the Gold Cup today and nothing anyone says will take that away from me.
    People go on about his prep having not jumped a fence but that doesn’t bother me. If Pat Kelly thought he wasn’t ready he wouldn’t be running. His Cheltenham record speaks for itself and his win in the RSA last year was a monster performance .
    CDO is 0-4 at Cheltenham and although he’s improved hugely this season I don’t think he’ll last home. I take the King George form with a dose of salt as it didn’t suit the likes of Native River who was off the bridal at half way but today I think whoever finishes in front of him today will win the cup and is the biggest danger to PP.

    4.10 Stand up and Fight small win
    Don’t know too much about the form in Hunter Chases but I do know Ends Bolgers record in these type of races so happy to go with him

    4.50 Minds Eye ew
    The heavier the better for this horse and might have got in a bit light off 142

    5.30 Dallas Des Pictons/ Cartwright (20/1 ap ew)
    DDP’s form took a huge boost this week with City Island winning the Ballymore and a mark of 140 looks lenient based on that form.
    Cartwright I backed earlier as he’s due a big run. Both wins have also come on heavy ground. Elliott has won this race the last 2 years

  8. maverick 2 years ago

    Morning every1 what a cracking day that was for me yest as well as plenty others on the site 👌

    Today is final day and hoping to carry on from yest and finish it off in style 🤞

    All about 2 horses for me today Sir Eric in the 1.30 he is the final leg on 1 of the festival accumulators I had placed with 1 horse each day and if he wins then is about £450 returned… with that in mind can you let me know if any of you have any horses you feel could be a threat to Sir Eric as going to do a cover bet incase he dsnt win but hopefully that wont be the case.

    The other horse is Present Percy in the gold cup and the regulars will know how much I love this horse and have a good write up for his last race which he won when was supposed to have only been a prep run. This has been the one I have most been looking forward to and I cant wait.

    Presenting Percy NAP
    Sir Eric NB although not exactly a tip as such due to price and the fact every man and their dog will be on it

      Thanks Maverick, tbh I’m only having a crack at it coz it’s basically a free bet.

    • kyle b 2 years ago

      Decided to throw a fiver on Presenting percy @ 4/1 in the 3:30 seeing as you are both so confident on it.

      BOL with your bets fellas!

    For any1 interested PP are doing a decent looking special today… Sir Eric to win and Presenting Percy to finish top 4 2/1

    • theplug 2 years ago

      pp had that at 9/4 last night

  11. kyle b 2 years ago

    Cheers Double!

    I’ve backed Pic D’Orhy @ 10/1 with Sky. No reasoning, just got lucky with foreign horses in past. Know absolute zilch about horse racing.

    Looks like Sky traders favour Quel Destin, available at 9/1 elsewhere but half the price there, often done to deter people away. Offering best price on fav though.

    1.30 (Triumph Hurdle) This stone bruise report about Sir Erec, that came to light last week got me thinking about trainer Joseph O’Brien he also has Gardens of Babylon in the same race. If there is one thing young Joseph will have learned from his father it will be to run more than one horse in a race and getting the bigger price one to win. (How many times has Aiden O’Brien pulled that one off) Also looked at this Nicholls horse Pic D’Orhy who clocked some very quick times at Auteuil
    Also just a snippet, that I wrote down up from one of those Cheltenham Festival Preview nights, It involves a comment made by Tony Martin about Hannon. he put this horse up as his charity bet and it is 50/1.

    So having said all that I will be laying Sir Eric and backing those other three each way in a hope to make a profit out of the race.

      I don’t think you should link the two without evidence – looked to me like a racing accident.

    • buzzer 2 years ago

      R.i.p Sir Erec

    • buzzer 2 years ago

      I know what your saying Mr f but changing shoes without him having a chance to test them out and feel comfortable may have contributed to the impact of his fall I know it could be a longshot but I still don’t think that they should have taken that chance.

    • maverick 2 years ago

      That had nothing to do with the shoe m8 just a tragic accident

    • buzzer 2 years ago

      Yeah Nothing to do with the shoes ive just heard from the Vet man on itv sad to see

    IRISH TIMEs won CD lto. he runs off the same mark BUT has a 5lb claimer on to help him too, how can he lose, NEXT RACE at chelms..

    • 2 years ago

      Regarding Irish Times, on paper you cannot deny it looked a good thing, if you watch the race, heading into the final 2f, it looked the best and hadn’t been asked, it just didn’t pick up, it was worth a point all day long my friend.

      as for Aaron Lad 14/1 in the Pertermps, a person I know was working for the stable and spoke to the Jockey, the information he gave me from their stable regarding RED MIX, was spot on and I believe i put it on here. If you watch the race, the horse is in a great position all the way and travelled well, HE LEAD at the 2nd last fence and just wasn’t good enough, if you are betting to a level stake, you cannot hold any grudges against backing this horse.
