With Equine Influenza dominating the Horse Racing scene in the UK for the last 6 days or so it’s great to get the National Hunt season back on the road and start dreaming of the Cheltenham Races again!
Cheltenham winning jockey Paddy Aspell is joined by debutante David Weldon and regular #racehour hosts Diarmuid Nolan and Dean Ryan to evaluate the 15 biggest favourites for the Festival with just four weeks to go until the famous Cheltenham roar.
If any of these are on your banker list then listen on to get the scores from the panel of four judges who decide if they are the right or wrong favourite and if they were getting involved with the markets today what they would be backing.
15 Cheltenham Festival Favourites under the microscope with four weeks to go…
Angels Breath – vying for favouritism for the opening race, the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle but has only jumped four hurdles on a racecourse so far! See full trends for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.
Le Richburg – clear favourite for the Arkle and trained by former star flat jockey Joseph O’Brien, who brings a strong team to the Festival this year and will be hoping to get a winner on the board early. Check out the Arkle trends.
Buveur D'Air – bidding for a third Champion Hurdle victory and facing possibly his biggest test to date with the emergence of the brilliant mare Apples Jade will this be his defining moment or one step to far?
Santini – Described by his trainer Nicky Henderson as the slowest horse he has ever trained but this staying chaser is aiming high in the RSA Chase and perhaps the leading Gold Cup horse for 2020? RSA trends are here to help you find your winner this year.
Altior – Surely the banker of the Cheltenham Festival for 2019 but are the current odds right? The Champion Chase could be a rematch for Altior and Min who have duelled it out at the Festival before but is Min catching up as time goes on?
Tiger Roll – Everyone wants him to win the Cross Country Chase this season don’t they? But is the Grand National winner a good thing this year or are all eyes on the Aintree showpiece that follows in April? The panel debate the “little horse” and his chances of another famous Festival success for trainer Gordon Elliott.
The panel also look at the chances of Paisley Park, Honeysuckle, Sir Erec and Gold Cup favourite Presenting Percy but who gets the nod of approval and who are the Cheltenham Festival Bismarcks?
