4.25pm Cheltenham Tips & Betting Preview 18/04/2018

A competitive handicap in prospect here; Taj Badalandabad, Whataknight and Protek Des Flos all ran respectably in the Pertemps Hurdle over this course and distance at last month’s Cheltenham Festival. They all look fairly handicapped however and are possibly vulnerable to an unexposed type. KING OF REALMS fits that description, he ran the now 142-rated Kildisart to within two lengths on his hurdles debut at Ascot and bolted up in a Maiden Hurdle at Doncaster last time out. He has long suggested that a step up to this trip would suit him and now makes his handicap debut today from an opening mark of 133, which looks potentially lenient.
