It’s all about the jumpers at the Cheltenham Festival this week but I’ve three fancies that could give us a good run for our money.
7:10 Scot Daddy, 1m, Kempton
He’s going to go off at a double-figure price as he is yet to win from 11 tries.
Put a line through his last run as he was held up in a very slowly-run contest over 7 furlongs. The 10f trip before that stretched his stamina and he folded tamely.
This 1m trip looks the ideal compromise and with Silvestre DeSousa booked for the first time and with a box draw in stall one we can expect a very bold show at an each-way price at Kempton on Wednesday night.
7:40 Heiba, 6f, Kempton
All I can say is that the dogs in the street have been barking very loudly in Newmarket for this colt.
This son of Starspangledbanner cost €30,000 as a foal and 110,000 guineas as a yearling, He won’t need to be a superstar to make a winning debut as Twisitng Hay is the the highest-rated in the field off a mark of 72.
Better still he’s drawn on the paint in stall one.
8:40 Big Amigo, 6f, Kempton
He was punted on his debut over 7 furlongs at Wolverhampton for the Tom Dascombe team but ran very, very green and beaten more then 15 lengths. He showed massive amounts of improvement when dropped to 6f and won comfortably when well backed again.
Starts his handicapping career on what looks a lenient mark of 75.
