Faugheen – 1.30 Cheltenham
WIN BET ADVISED AT ODDS 9/2
*BETFAIR SPORTSBOOK PAYING 4 PLACES
Faugheen comes here ultra consistent winning his last 3, his last run was a Grade 1 race at Leopardstown where he showed he was justifiably sent off Fave putting in a great run carrying 11 stone 10lbs beating some good rivals rated 155, 148, and 147 in what looked a competitive novice chase. His penultimate run he beat today’s Marsh (1.30pm) Fave Samcro by a decent 10 lengths in another Grade 1 under similar ground conditions to today’s race and carries 6lbs less here. He also ran a massive race here last year in the Stayers Hurdle against Paisley Park. Faugheen has an abundance of class and I think he holds a great chance to get another Grade 1 chase under his belt. Good Luck!
Frodon – 2.50 Cheltenham
WIN BET ADVISED AT ODDS 5/1
Frodon comes here as last year’s winner looking for a repeat. He won his last time out race at Kempton with a bold bid running from the front, as he normally does, and beating the consistent Fave Top Notch who had won his last 2 runs one of them being a Grade 2 chase at Huntingdon. Frodon’s penultimate race he ran in the Betfair Chase at Haydock over a 3 mile trip. He had won over 3 miles previously but 2 mile 4f is his best distance. He comes here with 5 course wins and as last year’s winner I think he could go close again under today’s conditions. Good Luck!
Spiritofthegames – 4.10 Cheltenham
EACH WAY BET ADVISED AT ODDS 18/1
SKYBET PAYING 6 PLACES AT ODDS OF 16/1
Spiritofthegames comes here having had a great run of form. last time out he ran over course and distance under similar soft going conditions only being denied by half a length to the top weight Cepage who pulled off a mighty task to win under such a welter burden. Spiritofthegames ran off 11-7 and today runs off 11-4 and on his penultimate run only was denied a head at 40/1, so, with two 2nd place finishes over course and distance in Grade 3 Handicap Chases I think he has great chance of getting his head in front in this off the same mark as last time out. Good Luck!
