Gordon Elliott absolutely loves Down Royal‘s Ladbrokes Champion Chase meeting and he had six winners across the two days last year, as well as six winners from the seven races on Friday. The County Meath-based trainer is set to have a number of excellent chances on Saturday. With this in mind, we’ve combined five of his runners into an accumulator which will have the bookies running scared. Check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
Wodhooh has won both of her starts over hurdles and absolutely bolted up at Punchestown last time out. A repeat of that effort should maintain her unbeaten record and get Elliott’s day off to the best possible start.
Down Memory Lane was an easy winner of his sole Irish point and he got the better of a subsequent scorer on his bumper debut at Fairyhouse. There should be loads more to come now hurdling and he looks like a smart prospect.
Gerri Colombe was only narrowly denied when second in the Brown Advisory at Cheltenham in March. He gained compensation at Aintree next time and he’s likely to develop into a Gold Cup contender this year.
Ash Tree Meadow put in a career-best performance to win the Galway Plate when last seen. This race looks like a good opportunity on his first start after a break, as the weight conditions are in his favour here.
Cleatus Poolaw switched hands for €120,000 after winning an Irish point at Fairyhouse in April. He makes his debut under rules in a bumper here and Gordon Elliott has won the last eight renewals of this race.
