WE are officially less than seven weeks from the Cheltenham Festival and trying to find expensive horses can be very difficult at this stage.
But don’t let that discourage you – there’s still a lot of untapped value.
Many of the classifieds have low-priced favorites, so the temptation to go into the handicap in search of a bit of added value can be tempting, although today I am look at two former Cheltenham Festival winners who I think could provide punters with some much needed funds on Wednesday afternoon at Prestbury Park.
The first of these came up in the Brown Mentor Newcomer Hunt, and although the price may be low, the winners are the winners, right?
This Willie Mullins-trained monster won last year’s Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle, flying upright on the reins all the way to the final 100 yards, where he was ejected impressively to win carrying a weight decent amount.
He then went on to have success at the more than three-mile Punchestown Festival in First Class company, beating some really smart horses in the process.
Of course the horse I’m talking about is a mighty horse GALOPIN DES CHAMPS, and although he’s my shortest pre-poster tip at 13-8 with Paddy Power, I’m confident he’ll go the Don Poli route and get ahead of the formerly named RSA Chase in Cheltenham and hack the ring on the reins.
He is expected to run at the Dublin Racing Festival next weekend with more than 2m5f, where he will be a short-price favorite after making his flawless debut on foot at Leopardstown over the Christmas period .

When he’s (almost) certain to win Ladbrokes Novice Chase next weekend I expect him to be at Cheltenham so want to add him to my portfolio now.
My second bet on Wednesday comes in Cross Country, a race I usually avoid as it can sometimes descend into total chaos on the shores… but this time I think the answer is pretty easy. understand.
In terms of quality, the race is certainly not lacking in any element, with the market leader currently pricing in a premium due to JP McManus’ recent purchase of Prengrade for cross-country mining.
But the French Raider form is difficult to translate.
Previous winner Easysland looks set to have some trouble this year as well.
We have yet to see him compete this season and it looks like a race against time to get him in line with Cheltenham with new manager Jonjo O’Neill (another negative from a point of view). mine).
The further you look down the list, there are a number of unlikely candidates, including Ajas, Farclas and even Cheltenham double winner Samcro.
But it’s a Gigginstown & many other Cheltenham Festival winners I’m supporting here, and it’s the one and only TIGER ROLL.
The tiger was leading 13-2 but was squeezed to 5-1 after his opening goal over the hurdles this weekend at Navan, where I’m pretty happy with what I’ve seen, coach So did his trainer Gordon Elliott.
He jumped and moved well under his heaviest weight and came home healthy, so the plan was to return to Cheltenham in search of his fourth Cross Country title.
He is rated higher than most of the horses likely to show up here, and the weights could duplicate his performance of 12 months ago, even at 12 years of age.
I think this race has been his goal throughout the season and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Elliott getting ready for the big day in perfect condition, winning in stylish fashion. and then retire on high posture.
Our mates at Paddy Power doubled my banker from 14-1 to 18-1 – just click that link to return to it.
