1.30PM BALLYMORE NOVICES HURDLE – ENVOI ALLEN

I think Envoi Allen is probably going to win. Of all of the favourites this week, he’s one of the most solid.

You could argue he’s a decent price at 5/4 but I do have a theory we’re all going to go bananas in the morning and push him out and offer a bit of value.

If there’s one that could beat him The Big Breakaway for Colin Tizard could potentially shake him up. But I think Envoi Allen will win this one.

DON’T MISS:

2.10PM RSA CHASE – ALLAHO

The first antepost bet I made this year was BattleofDoyen for this race. He was a horse I decided I was going to get behind and follow him all year way back in November.

Now I actually dislike the horse intensely! It’s weird, I thought he was going to be one that I’d love. I just really don’t like him.

Minello Indo I think has a chance. Ruby Walsh thinks Champ’s fall in his last race before the Festival will actually do him good and sharpen him up and there could be something in that.

Copperhead is well talked up as one of the best of the English. Allaho was going to be a certainty in the Marsh, but Willie Mullins certainly knows more about racing than I do, and so it’s Allaho for me in the RSA.

2.50PM CORAL CUP – BURROWS EDGE

I very shrewdly backed Burrows Edge antepost at 11/1 and he’s now 20/1! I won’t be changing my mind now.

4.10PM CROSS COUNTRY CHASE – TIGER ROLL

Tiger Roll will win. I can’t see anyone getting close to him here.

4.50PM BOODLES JUVENILE HURDLE – TRONADOR

I agree with Ruby Walsh on this one, Tronador has snuck in and I fancy him to win.

5.30PM CHAMPION BUMPER – APPRECIATE IT

It’s a bit obvious, but you’ve got to look at Appreciate It’s form. He’s won over two-and-a-half, and just when you think he might be too slow to win at Cheltenham, then he wins over two and has got every box covered. Ruby Walsh always speaks well of him, saying he’s an easy ride as bumper horses go.
