Nigel’s Charity Bet

The New One 3.00pm Cheltenham, Saturday – 4/1 Best Odds Guaranteed

A £50 bet will be placed with any returns being donated to the Injured Jockeys Fund.

Saturday’s Runners

Sword Of The Lord 12.30pm Lingfield

“He can be a bit of a quirky sort but I think we have found quite a bad race for him here and he looks to have a reasonable chance if he can just repeat his Perth form that may well be good enough.”

Wood Yer 1.40pm Lingfield

“A decent staying type he likes the soft ground he should get this afternoon and ran really well until he made a mistake last time out at Haydock and I feel that if he can cut that out he has an excellent chance this afternoon.”

Wholestone 2.25pm Cheltenham

“This looks like it may turn in to a very hot contest but I would not swap mine for any of them. I am very pleased with him, he just keeps on improving, and I think he as a very good chance of another success this afternoon.”

Better Days 2.50pm Lingfield

“He has got a better chance here than he had last time out at Ludlow and runs off two pounds lower here. He seems none the worse for his fall and is schooling as well as expected and could run in to a place with a bit of luck.”

The New One 3.00pm Cheltenham

“Well we have got to give My Tent Or Yours eight pounds thanks to race conditions and I cannot pretend that will be easy. That said, I have him in great form, he has won this very race twice already in 2013 and 2014 (he didn’t run last year), and I think we could surprise them all.”

Kilronan High 3.35pm Cheltenham

“She’s been running over fences but as there is nothing suitable until the end of the month and she is buzzing at home we will send her back over hurdles here. I think I may have found here a good opportunity and a big run is very much on the cards.”

Sunday’s Runners

Woodfort 1.20pm Southwell

“He has got a pretty decent chance on his hurdling debut and goes well enough at home to suggest he can win a few races over hurdles, He has already won a bumper and I’ll be disappointed if he doesn’t run well this afternoon.”
