1.10 Cheltenham

Henry de Bromhead has always been fairly selective with the horses he sends over to Cheltenham. He doesn’t like to send them all the way there for nothing. It could be significant that he sends Brave Way (11-2, Paddy Power) over after winning its last two starts. Just five chase starts to his name so far and this progressive horse should have plenty more to give.


1.45 Cheltenham

Banbridge (7-2, Boylesports) returns to the scene of his victory at the Festival here back in March. Having won the competitive conditional jockeys’ race, his course form is second to none here. The drop back to two miles is interesting as he made a winning start to his chasing career over 2m4f at Gowran last month. This horse looks a chaser and should improve further in this sphere.


2.20 Cheltenham

French Dynamite (9-2, William Hill) is a fascinating Irish raider who prepared for this with a cosy win over hurdles. Lightly raced over fences, he has won two of his five starts. This includes a Grade 3 win against the useful Ciel De Neige. Historically, this race has been good for progressive second season chasers and this unexposed handicapper fits the bill. He has the right profile to end the Irish hoodoo in this prestigious race.


3.30 Cheltenham

Unanswered (4-1, bet365) had shown nothing in his first four starts over hurdles. Yet, he was backed into 3-1 co-favourite to win on his final start and duly obliged by almost nine lengths. Quite incredibly, his trainer didn’t have to explain the improvement to the stewards. This smells like a Tony Martin plot and the horse almost certainly has plenty in the locker.
