Cheltenham Day 1 - 16th March

1.30 Meitier 11/2 W

He is well worth his place as the leading English challenger for this prestigious opener

1.55 Allmankind 5/1 EW

Even if Sky Pirate runs, I just think Allmankind is running to a higher standard

2.30 Cepage 20/1 EW

Is just the sort to bounce back to form with soft conditions to suit

3.05 Sharjah 9/1 EW

Might get a more positive ride this time and is an each-way alternative to his old rival Epatante

3.40 Roksana 11/4 W

Sure to give good running again with conditions to suit and plenty of top level Cheltenham form in the book

Cheltenham Day 2 - 17th March

Proved a revelation on his seasonal debut at Kempton over Christmas

3.40 Some Neck 9/1 EW

4.15 Sky Pirate 11/1 EW

He clicked at Cheltenham in December under a brilliant ride from Jonjo jnr. Player

4.50 Sir Gerhard 2/1 W

He has already attracted some warm cash in the ante-post markets, and seems sure to be one of the Irish bankers over the four days

Completed hat-trick over fences in Grade 1 Kauto Star Novices' Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day

2018 Triumph winner who scored on his first 3 starts over fences and has run well in some red-hot handicaps in Ireland this season

4.15 Royal Kahala 5/1 W

She has plenty of scope to keep improving as her stamina is drawn out, and is well worth following as she steps up into warmer company

Won first 3 starts over hurdles and this has been the target since he landed the Grade 2 Knight Frank Juvenile at Leopardstown over Christmas

1.55 Strong Glance 12/1 EW

Fairly useful form when placed in handicaps during the autumn and possible heavy ground caught him out in the Greatwood. Back on track with jumpers bumper victories of late and mark remains workable

2.30 Adrimel 12/1 EW

Useful bumper winner who is unbeaten in three outings over hurdles, cheekpieces fitted when gutsy scorer in Grade 2 at Warwick (2m5f) in January. Sure to progress further at 3m, so holds good claims

3.05 Gold Cup, A Plus Tard 11/4 W

He has winning Cheltenham form in the book over hurdles, and looked a shade unlucky when a well backed third in the 2020 Ryanair Chase behind Min
