JLT Novices Chase 14/03/2019 13:30:00 
  • A competitive little race this, with Defi Du Seuil heading the market. I’d opt for him with the Coral double winnings offer. You may get lucky and get him at 3-1 to qualify for betfair’s 3-1 offer, but he’ll almost certainly be too short for the bet365 offer. That said, I don’t have him as a particularly strong favourite. For the Skybet money back as cash promotion I’d be looking for a bigger priced horse as a punter and there are 2 that come to mind. Kildisart at 10-1 has course form here, having won at Cheltenham in January and has to be worth a go with a risk free bet. The other is Voix du Reve at around 15-1. He fell last time out and I don’t normally like to back horses that fell in their previous race, but if you are opting for a risk free bet on the race, he could be worth chancing at those odds.

    Spiritofthegames is another at a big price of 25-1 and is well worth an EW bet.

  • A handicap race, so any number of horses could take this. I’d see what is being backed on the day and look to go with that. If I had to pick a horse it would be Theclockisticking at 20-1 EW.

Ryanair Chase 14/03/2019 14:50:00 
  • This is always a difficult race to call, mainly because we often don’t know who is going to run here until very close to the day. That said Un de sceaux loves Cheltenham and always does well here. I’d be tempted to give him another go in the Ryanair with the Bet365 and betfair offers. He’d also get my nod for an EW bet as well. Another horse I like for this (although he will probably go to the Gold Cup and lose) is Frodon. If he gets entered here, I’ll certainly be backing him at around 10-1.

Stayers Hurdle 14/03/2019 15:30:00 
  • A strong favourite here in Paisley Park. At around 7-4 you aren’t going to be getting on him for the Betfair or Bet365 offers, but he is certainly worth it for High 5 and free bets for lengths. I really like this horse. The way he stormed up the hill at Cheltenham last time reminded me of Altior and he’s going to take some beating. Faugheen is entered here, but he had a really terrible fall last time out when facing up to Apples Jade. The Mullens camp say he’s fine, but it would be a worry. If you can get 4-1 on the day he’d be worth chancing with tight qualifying losses for betfair and Bet365 as well as 2nd and 2nd to SP offers.

  • This is another really tough race to call. But at a big price LiveloveLaugh at 20-1 might be one that I’d get involved with ew. If he gets round, he has a chance and turns up here. This isn’t a race to go big in, so if you are matched betting any offers keep your losses tight.

  • This race isn’t on ITV so won’t qualify for Bet365 or Betfair offers. I have been a fan of Honeysuckle for a while now and for a long time she was a big favourite for this race. The emergence of Epatante cruising home to victory on the bridle at Exeter in February has well and truly staked her claim as a leading contender and is now favourite at 2-1. If you can get 2nd to SP on Honeysuckle at 3-1 I would take that. At a bigger price Salsaretta holds appeal Ew if 3 places are paid. She unseated her rider last time out, but won her 2 races prior to this. She’s from the Mullens yard and given he’s the only trainer to have won this race, she holds some real value at around 14-1
