The CHELTENHAM Festival market is really picking up steam right now – and we can be more confident in some tantalizing pre-post positions.
Again, the majority of the market leaders and enthusiasts are from Ireland.
Willie Mullins’ Dysart Dynamo made a huge impression when he demolished the Moscow Flyer Stadium last Sunday.
But he is causing all kinds of headaches for the master coach about his intended goal at the Festival.
With the race tradition being the stepping stone for the Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, he jumped to 5/1 for the curtain lifter and was also dropped to the same price for Ballymore, with many believing this year to be a thing. much weaker.
My hunch is that he’s going to Ballymore, but at this stage that’s anyone’s guess.
We also saw superstar Bob Olinger make it two from two fences in a dominating display in G3 Kildare’s Beginner Chase.
He jumped much more proficiently and put the race to bed between the second and final fences comfortably.

I was pleased to see my previously consulted ante post pick Capodanno ran a big race in second place.
Hopefully he’ll make one more move against Cheltenham over the long haul.
I think he will appear there in National Hunt Chase as advised.
Moving on to this week’s picks, and the horse I’ve chosen will have to outrun mighty Bob Olinger in the Turners Novice Chase, but for the price, I’m willing to take every single one. chance for him.
We only need to look back at last year’s similar race with Envoi Allen to know anything could happen on the day.
Looking past the current trend of favoring even money, the picture looks a bit murky for potential challengers, with Venetia Williams’ real L’Homme Presse appearing.
But in the end, I think he will advance in this company.
Looking deeper at the list, it’s a Mullins candidate keeping an eye on me at this stage, and the one I’m adding to my portfolio is SAINT SAM currently ranked 20/1 with most companies after a successful launch a few weeks ago.

He saw off the likes of Thedevilscoachman and El Barra in a pretty hot Beginner’s Chase and looked like he was working at his best late in the hour, showing a step up in the trip. may be suitable.
Jockey Paul Townend seemed to think he would make a better chaser than hurdles after his debut, and said: “He took a last-minute leap and only then did he go. “
To me, it shows he can be one of the mid-range chasers, especially with Mullins seemingly already having the Arkle division combined with Ferny Hollow and Blue Lord.
He ran a cracker at the Festival Under a Heavyweight in Boodles last year, so we know he doesn’t mind Cheltenham.
And the fact that he is only five years old shows that there is probably a lot of improvement in him.
We may not have seen the height he can extend.
I would imagine Mullins would have another clash with him against Cheltenham, whether it’s the Dublin Racing Festival or not, then send him to face Bob Olinger at the Turners with a couple of cars. another dart from his yard.
