Top jock Ruby Walsh banged in a Kanye West limelight stealing 10/1 treble in the first three races last weekend before Matt Chapman rounded off the day with second-placed Cheltenian (22/1) at Newbury.
But that was then – and this is now.
Haydock’s Grand National Trial, the Grade Two Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton and Ascot’s Grade One Chase take centre-stage this weekend as Ruby, fake-tan expert and racing pundit Matt Chapman, our racing trader and lovable pal Turftalk Tom try to boost the Cheltenham bank balance – four weeks out from the festival.
They’ve all settled on Irving in the at Wincanton but Haydock’s 3m 5f slog in a bog and Ascot’s classy TV finale is dividing opinion as much as Katie Hopkins.
