“He is no 40-1 shot in this” – Adrian Wall lines up National Hunt Chase bet

Colin Tizzard

Without a doubt, the first day of the Cheltenham Festival is the best of the four. Full of hope for an excellent week ahead, it’s a card that really gets the juices flowing long before the roar for the Supreme. We will have free horse racing tips for all twenty-eight races at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival 2021.

There is one horse who really catches the eye in a wide open looking National Hunt Chase who is top price 40-1 with bet365. I will be surprised if he goes off at that price with things turning in his favour. Read on to find out just who it is that catches the eye.

4.50 Tuesday – National Hunt Chase

Colin Tizzard knows how to train a staying chaser and his stable have come right back into form in the last few weeks. With that in mind, Ofalltheginjoints looks too big a price to ignore at odds of 40-1 with bet365.

This horse looked like a superb chasing prospect when running out a stylish winner of a three mile Exeter handicap in November. It is a race that has worked out well with the 2nd and a faller in the race subsequently going on to win.

He was bitterly disappointing when sent off favourite for a Doncaster Grade 2 last time out. Something was clearly amiss as he never travelled a yard and was eventually tailed off.

Any horse can have an off day but if he bounces back and runs like he did at Exeter, he is a massive player in this.
