Cheltenham Festival National Hunt Chase E/W Ante-Post Pick

Danny Whizzbang 16/1

For all you Peaky Blinders fans this selection will be very welcome but on a serious not we have looked into some ante-post value for one of the hardest contests of the four day meeting.

The National hunt Chase is the last race on the first day of the festival and is contest that is frowned upon by many people outside of the sport due to only three runners finishing in the field last season.

The old 3m 7f 147y contest this season looks as tricky as ever but we think we have found an early piece of value if this horse was to be finally entered for the marathon event.

Danny Whizzbang for trainer Paul Nicholls has been a very lightly raced six year old by the trainer only having three runs since November last year.

He has unbeaten on all three starts to date since joining the yard starting his rules career off at Hereford in a Class 4 maiden over 3 miles 1 1/2 furlongs and won nicely showing his staying ability.

He as then sent to Exeter in March of that season having a five month lay off and again came back in good form winning another Class 4 contest against better horses this time.

Nicholls' horse made his seasonal debut at Newbury at their Winter Carnival last weekend and thrown straight into a two mile 7 furlong Grade Two Chase, he excelled.

With only three runners he dominated the Proceedings but he was going up against Reserve Tank who had already landed a Grade Two this season which shows the form of the race.

Paul Nicholls after the race explained that he stays all day and will go over further in the future meaning this contest looks very likely and he has all the credentials to go close in it.
