Cheltenham is coming – Build the Racing Betting Balance Here

Top Tips for the 23/2; the day we strike back and start the festival funds upwards to the top of the hill at Cheltenham’s 3rd last.
COBRA  DE  MAI  4.10  TAUNTON  NB  With Sea Wall carrying too much weight ,I’m jumping on this  Dan Skelton  trained 4 year old. Bridget Andrews (5lb off) is showing what a talented jockey she is  and has  been given the chances to ride winners.She has a bright future in this national hunt game and should strike like a cobra today and take this handicap hurdle with the low weights at odds of  9/2  with  BETVICTOR  and  PADDYPOWER.
BIG  JIM  3.50  WETHERBY  NB  Me mate Jim,A big man will be all over this like a swarm of wasps round the honey pot and me also!. Alex  Hales with the way Kielan Woods got this one going the last day and having carried today’s weight over further in December looks a nice sort to pick up today’s prize at odds of  13/8  with  BET365, BETVICTOR  and  LADBROKES.
OSCAR  JANE  2.00  TAUNTON  NB  Another of these oscars that doesn’t know how to run a bad race and with the Hollywood awards just around the corner lets hope that Johnny Farrelly is getting a trophy today. David Noonan (5lb off) is again in the saddle looking for the quick fire double over course and distance and there is only the fences stopping him here today at odds of  5/4 with BET365.
SONNY THE ONE  3.05  TAUNTON  The fact that Tom Scudamore rides this one today for Colin Tizzard shows how seriously they regard its chances here.Over a much shorter trip today I think Tom Scudamore will ride this one flat out ,jumping rhythmically and grinding its rivals into submission like the great heavy weight champion Sonny Liston and knock this one out of the park for us punters at odds of  9/4  with  SKYBET, TOTESPORT, BOYLESPORT, BETVICTOR, PADDYPOWER and BETFAIR.
ZEPHYROS  BLEU  4.25  WETHERBY  Harry  Whittington has a few horses and this 6 year old ridden again today by the talented Gavin Sheehan , looks like a stable earner.Sure to be fit, the distance and ground are not a problem and hopefully we won’t be blue and this one floats over the sticks here and confirms the yards hopes at odds of  10/11  with SKYBET, BETWAY, andBETVICTOR.
WHISKEY  MARMALADE 3.30  WOLVERHAMPTON  Nice on toast with a bit of pure butter , I fancy this to follow up here after its course and distance victory last month. Raul Da Silva again takes on the steering job and I’m sure Ben Haslam will be saying from the horses draw,latch on to them and kick for home in the straight to take this one late on for the Whiskey Double(Balvenie double wood) at odds of  5/1  across the boards.
ROCKWOOD  2.55  WOLVERHAMPTON  Karen McLintock has a fair strike rate here and Paul Mulrennan combined with this horse last week to score here on similar weights to today so lets knock on wood and rock up to those layers and have a few bob on this 5 year old to get the job done at odds of  4/1  with  BET365, BETVICTOR  and  SKYBET.
THE WEALERDEALER  4.45  TAUNTON  When I saw this one i thought of old Del Boy and Rodders and dear old Uncle Albert  and the good old days of Arthur Daley and Terry McCann in minder ” I could be so good for you”. I Chinn trains and rides this interesting 9 year old from their small operation and with form between both flags and posts is a smart looking prospect providing its fit and ready it should go close at odds of  2/1  with TOTESPORT, BETFRED, BETVICTORand WILLIAMHILL.
FOOTLIGHT  5.40  WOLVERHAMPTON  Seeming to need further like footpad and others of that genus ,Richard Fahy has this 3 year old entered in this mile plus today.The booking of  Tony Hamilton is a plus and provided it sees out the extra distance , is stripped fit and ready to go and light the trail  home for its rivals at odds of   7/2  with  WILLIAMHILL, BETVICTOR and BET365.
Good luck in building the Cheltenham betting balance.
