Racing from Doncaster and Newbury is the challenge for our crack-unit of tipsters this week, as the racing world gets set for the Cheltenham Festival.
Turftalk Tom did the business last weekend with a cheeky double at Kempton that included Irish Saint (Evens) and Days of Heaven (11/10). Matt Chapman also chipped in with Irish Saint, while Ruby Walsh and the Trading monkey picked out Days of Heaven. We’re harsh critics though, so the card is marked as ‘must do better’ after failing to spot 18/1 shot Milborough at Newcastle. Here’s hoping for some more success this week.
There’s a whole host of competitive racing over jumps, and hopefully our panel will be able to select a horse that’s steadier on their feet than Madonna. We’re just over a week away from hearing the Cheltenham roar, and it would be great to roll into the Festival with a bit of cash in the account.
No pressure lads!
