Turf Talk: Thoughts of Cheltenham

editorial image

IT IS Imperial Cup day at Sandown this Saturday and my idea of the winner is Jessica Harrington’s Steps to Freedom, currently trading at 10/1 as I write.

But my thoughts are all about Cheltenham next week - a meeting I spend all year studying for. I have a portfolio of horses I have backed Ante-Post, all at greater prices than can be expected on the day.

My Tent or Yours in the Supreme Novices hurdle is a key horse for me so I’ll hopefully be cheering him home.

Other horses worthy of bearing in mind as you look at next week’s cards include Cantlow, Carlito Brigante, Captain Conan, Cape Tribulation, Hadrians Approach and Rule the world.

Here’s hoping for a fantastic week of racing and a profitable one too.
