Cheltenham Festival 2014: Five handicap punts to give Paddy sleepless nights

Its all starting to take shape with five days to go to the off at Prestbury Park.

by Sean Goff | March 6, 2014

We’re five days out form the greatest show on earth and the racing traders are starting to get a bit jiggy.

There’s still plenty of multiple entries across the four days of Cheltenham but the cash has started to pour in on these five runners ahead of the off on Tuesday.

There’s still time for last-minute change of plans. But with the money talking louder than Piers Morgan – it’s time to take note. 

Tuesday, March 11

Hadrians Approach, 10/1, Handicap Chase, 2.40pm

Finished third in the RSA Chase last year he warmed up for the Festival with a confidence booster in a four-runner race at Newbury

Present View, 10/1, Novices Handicap Chase, 5.15pm

A 10-length winner of a qualifier at Kempton the last time he has snuck in off a decent weigh and his jumping is his strong point in the Listed contest.


Wednesday, March 12

Dawalan, 6/1, Fred Winter, 2.40pm

One of the toughest handicaps to pick the winner in. But Nicky Henderson’s runner won two juvenile races at Newbury before getting touched off by a nose at Kempton.

Thursday March 13

Colour Squadron, 10/1, Byrne Group Plate, 4pm

Philip Hobbs runner has plenty of Cheltenham experience and finished second in the Paddy Power Gold Cup despite being hampered by a faller at the second-last fence. If AP McCoy rides expect a big run.

Friday, March 14

CheltenianCounty Hurdle, 10/1, 2.05pm

Won the Festival bumper in 2011 but was off the track for nearly two years with injury. Was 10th in the Supreme Novices and a close up fourth in the Betfair Hurdle last month. Could still be unexposed in handicap company.
