Cheltenham Classic Novices’ Hurdle Tips & Betting Preview

IN SUMMARY: This is a hugely competitive contest with so many ‘could be anything’ horses, but SANTINI is given the nod after impressing on hurdling debut at Newbury last month. He was always travelling the best and quickened clear smartly to win by four lengths. The second has come out and won twice since (now rated 145) and with conditions to suit, he should be very tough to beat under De Boinville. The main danger is Mulcays Hill, who was a short-head second in Grade 1 company last time out and should have more to offer.
