DISCORAMA (1.50) ran a cracker at the Cheltenham festival, finishing third to The Conditional in a thriller, and should again go well on his return to Prestbury Park in the 3m 3f handicap chase.

The Irish challenger was beaten on the nod by classy Native Milan on comeback at Galway in early October and Paul Nolan’s seven-year-old is open to more improvement this season. The rain was pelting down at Cheltenham early last evening so there will be no hiding place this afternoon. Discorama slogged through the mud to finish second in the four-mile National Hunt Chase at the 2019 festival, so he looks equipped for the attritional job in hand.

West Approach briefly threatened two out before giving best to fleet-footed Frodon here last month but is fancied to make a bold bid to follow up last year’s victory. He is up 6lb but that looks within his compass.

Alan King has scooped two of the last three renewals of the Unibet Greatwood Handicap Hurdle and he relies on last year’s victor Harambe and EDWARDSTONE (3.00).

Edwardstone was a smart novice last season, winning at Wincanton and Aintree, before running Stolen Silver close in the Haydock mud. The six-year-old finished sixth, but was by no means disgraced, in a hot Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. He has plenty of scope for improvement.

Harambe edged out Gumball last year and a 6lb higher mark doesn’t rule him out completely. Tegerek has gone well on deep ground in the past and should be involved.

At Southwell, FORTULTOUS (11.40) looks overpriced at 6-1 in the opening 1m 4f handicap. It is quite a competitive affair for the grade and Fortultous posted a good second to odds-on Beat The Heat over course and distance 12 days ago. The winner came out and won again off an 8lb higher mark, so the form looks rock-solid.

ROUNDEL (12.10) didn't appear the heartiest of battlers when fading into third behind Annie De Vega here six days ago. The winner seems progressive, however, and Roundel should feel more at ease dropping into handicap company. David O'Meara fits cheek-pieces and the drop to seven furlongs seems the right way to go.

  2. recoba 2 weeks ago

    Pants in the USA,more 2ndd than Steve Backley and backed the wrong horse in a single. 🤦🏾

    Well done the winners glad a few had Duffle Coat on!

    Big Breakaway out tomorrow in the 1st at Cheltenham after being pulled last week due to drying ground.
    They expect big things for this horse there’s even Gold Cup talk??
    5/6 now and he’s got his ground tomorrow but I think he will just be in my Yankee at that price

    GL folk .

    • cairnzy1878 2 weeks ago

      Too short for me as well mate, Cobden gave Nicholls Soldier of love a great ride recently and not a bad price at 4/1. If the favourite doesn’t show up which we’ve seen a lot at Cheltenham today then who knows.

    Thankfully backed Alan’s last night B365 BOG as all except Edwardstone have been backed and much shorter in price now. Apart from B365 and Ladbrokes other firms only offer BOG from 9am in morning. SkyBet don’t offer BOG on enhanced each way place races.
    Dharma Rain 3.50 Fontwell 11/2 speculative bet added to Alan’s.

  7. elvis parsley 1 week ago

    Ramses de teillee 1-50 Cheltenham 9-4 top 2 finish.
    Also taken 11-10 top 3 finish in multiples.
    And a few quid on the nose each way in case it wins 7-1.
    Money Thomson has tipped discorama so that probably wins but place possible.
    The more rain the better, if it’s mega heavy he will be begging for more as others wilt. 🌧️🌧️🌧️

    • insider 1 week ago

      it’s off putting he hasn’t chased since this race last year, where he was 4th of 7, over 20 lengths behind West Approach. he has a 10lb pull with that horse and carries 7lbs less overall. potentially an open race so wouldn’t put anyone off especially since DISCRORAMA isn’t overly convincing either at 9/4, the right fav but i don’t think i will touch. he’s only ever won one chase, hasn’t won for 2 years, and only beat BIG RIVER by 2 necks at the festival this year, they meet off similar weight disparities again today, i can’t see the form being overturned but he’s 10/1, might stick a recoba on it but he has pulled up the last two seasons on his pipe opener :( BOL

    • recoba 1 week ago

      What’s a Recoba ya tart? I’m up for a laugh m8 so gives it. Ye mean £3 or something.
      I only bet what I can afford,on this universal credit $hitr m8 it’s torrid but I certainly didn’t mess about last week at the Breeders Cup.

      Do tell but 👍

    • insider 1 week ago

      yes a recoba meant a £2 stake lol, no harm intended old boy

    • recoba 1 week ago

      None taken m8 .

      £10/12 on I’m sweating bullets! Lol
      Had £10 on an Evs horse last night in the USA and it was a sure thing winning easily by 6l or more only to see my in shop slip I’d took the wrong single and there was nothing I could do.
      Other came 2nd,finishing like a train but too late from daft jockey he got beat off a 22/1 shot! 🤦🏾
      I was a bit miffed! 👎

    • insider 1 week ago

      i went in shop a few years back, £21 double, in stead of writing names i wrote numbers, mixed up the two races, first horse won, waited 10 mins for the next race, 2nd horse won, then i realise my mistake… grossness.

    • dazzman1979 1 week ago

      Well done 👍 good battle at the end between yours and my selection which is what we like to see

    • insider 1 week ago

      as stated, 9/4 discorama, joke of a market. nice one parsley.

    • elvis parsley 1 week ago

      Cheers insider, took your advice and added the win so thanks for your write up yesterday.

  8. double carpet 1 week ago

    Big interest for me today with both my CH and RSA horses out today.
    Hopefully Saint Roi and Latest Exhibition can give a good showing and return safely.

    My only bet today is in the first at punch Bois De Clamart who could be much better than a 126 h’capper. He had Young Ted 6 1/2L behind 2 runs ago and he’s running off 128.
    Conditions will be tough so just a modest bet

    one of the worse commentator’s at southell today i hear, tells your what youre eyes see 20 seconds later, and then claims fortoutus was in a photo…. no need for it. clear winner, call it.

    • les cooper 1944 1 week ago

      nothing wrong with THOMMO, class BLOKE, COMMENTATOR, TIPSTER from the old MORNING LINE. Meet the DUDE on many occasions, sound for the CRAIC and a few pints of the BLACK STUFF. Champion GEEZER.

    • insider 1 week ago

      an annoying delivery and a poor eye does not make for a good commentator, as i said, he is not very helpful, his eyes are a minute behind mine, and he is often talking gash, no hopers are coming on strong and the cruising winner isn’t spotted until he’s won it practically.

    • Crawmeister 1 week ago

      Insider thinks he is the best ever !

    • insider 1 week ago

      im not into racing enough to care about being the best, even on this free site.. if i was any good i’d be lurking elsewhere but i know enough, i dont doubt i would show a profit year in year out. for a casual reader, there is often no guidance so i dont see the problem highlighting flaws in some picks after the race, it helps blind backers to think twice next time, it might also lead tippers to look for an extra 10 minutes to ‘polish off’ their picks. notice how uncle pom’s been staying up till 2am recently? ;)

  22. elvis parsley 1 week ago

    Rain came just in time for Ramses de teillee.
    The 1st and 2nd are tough as old boots on soft/heavy.
    Yala enki is a credit to his owners as this horse is always giving it’s best in top weekend handicaps.

    I will be on Ramses de teillee for the Welsh national if it’s entered and conditions similar to today’s.

      Well done young man ✅✅

    • Super Wilf 1 week ago

      Weird race

      Finished last but the only one that actually completed the course by jumping all the fences

    • Super Wilf 1 week ago

      Awarded the race

    • Crawmeister 1 week ago

      I think the stewards caused some confusion on the track. The jockeys followed each other but the jockey on default winner remained cool and understood stewards instructions and went own course by jumping fence alone. He then eased the horse up knowing they only had to jump remaining fences to win or wasn’t sure but best to complete then leave it to stewards enquiry. Jockey should be commended.
      Great commentary from Mark Johnston on the race. He knew exactly what had happened. As for taking bet winnings on the default winner I have no qualms. Many times it works the other way.

    • insider 1 week ago

      i had 25ew on a 16/1 shot i think this year, a horse went down and died on the 2nd lap, 90% of the jockeys missed the flags, nothing from the commentator, a whole circuit later following my baby, she wins, 1hr no payout, boom void race :D

    Football without fans is shite, I’m watching it without the canned fan noise and it sounds like a practice match in a aircraft hanger.

    About time they let folks back into sport.
    I’ve not been to a race meeting since Cheltenham in march when I would try to get to one or two a month on my days off.

    Racing is an open air sport Boris you wittering fool.
    It’s alright to watch live footy in a pub but you can’t watch footy and racing outdoors.
