A PLUS TARD – 3.05pm CHELTENHAM

2 PTS WIN BET AT 7/2 WITH THE FOLLOWING BOOKMAKERS

I have been dropping hints all week on Twitter that the Henry De Bromhead trained 7 year old gelding A Plus Tard was going to be my selection and my Nap in the Gold Cup. He has course form having finished 3rd to Min in the Ryanair last year and he won the Close Brothers by 16 lengths here in 2019. He stayed on really well over 3-miles to beat Kemboy in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown back in December appearing to be helped by first-time cheek-pieces (retained) and taking his form to a whole new level. He has the assistance of Rachel Blackmore in the saddle, goes well fresh, and looks likely to improve again for the step up to 3m2f.
