2013 Ryanair Chase Betting Tips

2013 Ryanair Chase Betting Tips

The Ryanair Chase was added to the festival back in 2005 and the race has been a welcome addition for me. The intermediate trip of two miles five furlongs gives top class chasers, who find two miles too sharp and three miles plus too taxing, an out in a quality event.

Day Two – Cheltenham Festival Betting Tips

Day Two – Cheltenham Festival Betting Tips

A really tough second day at the Cheltenham Festival and we’ll need plenty of luck to make a few quid. I’m not as strong on today’s picks as I was yesterday, but with a bit of luck we can show a profit or break even for the day.

2013 Arkle Chase Betting Tips and Preview

A mouth-watering race is once again in store in the 2013 Arkle Novice Chase. A race down the years, on paper, has always delivered. In action, it’s rarely disappointed. No better sight in jumps racing will you see than top two mile chasers, racing at speed jumping proper fences.

2013 Champion Hurdle Betting Preview

Here’s hoping, but it’s already shaping up to be a superior Champion Hurdle this coming March than the previous year. A number of horses look to have returned to form, some are back from injury and as ever, we have the young pretenders hoping to step-up and challenge their elders.

2013 Supreme Novice Hurdle Betting Preview

2013 Supreme Novice Hurdle Betting Preview

The four day festival bonanza, as ever, will kick off with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on the Tuesday. Historically a hugely competitive race finding the winner in the opener is tough, but if nabbed it could be the start of an excellent four days. A big field is nearly guaranteed which should add to the tension and action.

Al Ferof

A horse who was written off by plenty coming into the season, but bounced right back to form when winning the Paddy Power Gold Cup off 159. It was a huge performance in one of the year’s most competitive handicaps. He gave the 2012 RSA fifth, Walk On, 14 pounds and a three length beating. It was a monster effort. Last season started off in good style winning a Grade Two at Cheltenham before winning the Grade One King Henry VIII at Sandown, beating For Non Stop (distance flattered the second) who has given the form a solid look.

Art Of Logistics

I’m very much still learning in this game and so may be wrong here, but I’m not sure I’ve heard Dessie Hughes ever really talk-up a horse of his in bold terms. He did with this well-bred son of Exit To Nowhere however, when the four-year-old won his bumper at the small track of Roscommon.

1.30 CheltenhamSupreme Novices’ Hurdle

As ever the Supreme will be met by the famous Cheltenham roar as these two mile novices kick off the four day festival. A current theme in recent years has been short priced favourites being turned over so many will be out to get the 2013 hotpot, My Tent Or Yours. That said very few favourites have come into the race with as high a rating as him. All his form has been on flat tracks, but I see no reason why this classy sort shouldn’t handle Cheltenham.

Balder Succes

Still a little bit of an unknown quantity even after his recent third to Zarkandar in the Elite Hurdle. He’s not in the same class as Zarkandar, but if kept to the right races in soft conditions he’ll prove competitive. The key to this horse could well be soft ground. Genuinely soft should be perfect for him and the times we saw him last year with plenty give underfoot he was convincing on a number of occasions.

1.30 Cheltenham – Jewson Novice Chase

We’ve got a real hot Jewson this year with a whole host of potential stars going to post. Cristal Bonus must have a strong chance given his current well-being. We’re not sure what his form adds up to yet, but he’s done everything so easy. He is a fantastic jumper and coming from Ditcheat, he is sure to be well prepared for this test. Champion Court has long been a fancy for this race.
