It’s very much a Sunday fun day when it comes to racing today with a card full of class.
The action has already got underway with an 8-race jump starting in Punchestown at 12:05. This is shortly followed by action in cork at 12:15. We then move onto the English meetings with a jump meeting at Fontwell starting at 12:25. The main focus of our tips today will be coming from Cheltenham where action commences at 12:45.
Here are my tips for the day…
NAP: Time flies by- 16:00 Cheltenham. A really impressive winner here at Cheltenham 3 weeks ago. It came through a 15-horse field to get the win on heavy ground. With the ground looking in similar condition to it’s last win, it should be the one to beat here. The value may not be worth a single bet at EVS but this horse will be a great addition to a double.
NB: Quel Destin- 15:00 Cheltenham. This horse was a real superstar last season and has gone from strength to strength under the Paul Nicholls stable. A winner here twice at Cheltenham already it is sure to be in with a shot. A really tough race which oozes class all across the field but Harry Cobden loves the Cheltenham track and will be looking to take Quel Destin to 7 wins from 10 starts. At 13/2 this is really good value.
Each-way: Fruits of glory- 15:20 Punchestown. A Recent course and distance winner here at Punchestown. A hefty 10lb penalty for the horse today but it won’t be surprising if it runs well again here today. Definitely worth an E/W shot coming in at 8/1.
