Days: 23

The first race of the day from Cheltenham on Friday is the Novices' Hurdle over 2m 1/f and we have sided with the Dan Skelton trained Hartur D'Oudairies.

This exciting purchase for JP McManus has the world at his feet having been picked up after winning a race at Le Mans back in November 2020.

Sent to the Skelton's, who don't have many with the owner, the gelding made his rules debut this season at Warwick in a two mile Novices' Hurdle event.

He looked a superstar in the making, travelling beautifully up to the last flight and then was shrugged to improver and went clear by close to five lengths.

Being a four year old there is plenty of improvement expected and he could turn out to be something special.

This event is much tougher than his first assignment with the likes of Washington and Jpr One looking to be very smart horses themselves, so he will need to give a career best, but is expected to.

Lucinda Russell

Weight: 10-13
OR: 134

Next up is the 3m1f Limited Handicapo Chase and for events like this you need a thorough stayer and we believe the Lucinda Russell trained Corach Rambler is just that.

The seven year old gelding was a smart staying hurdler last term winning in January at Ayr and then backing that run up on his final start at Carlisle over today's trip.

Stepped up for his chase debut this term he finished a respectable third over 2m4f, with the trip being too short overall.

Last time out at Aintree, back up to 3m1f the gelding went on to take a nice handicap event with ease and although penalised for that should improve once more.

He is versatile when it comes to ground and will not have any stamina issues.

Yard in good form.

OR: 130
Days: 36

One of our best bets of the day on the Cheltenham card comes in the Class 3 Handicap Hurdle over 2m 1/2f with the Nicky Henderson trained Broomfield Burg looking extremely well handicapped.

The five year old was a £90,000 purchase for JP McManus off the back of winning a three mile point to point by four lengths in October 2020.

Having needed his rules debut in a bumper at Newbury in January, he was then seen again in May when bolting up by close to nine lengths.

Stepped over to hurdles shortly after that he made it back to back successes at Warwick, when taking out a Novices' hurdle by close to 10 lengths.

Sent back to Newbury last time out he could only manage second behind a nice type for Paul Nicholls, with horse who finished behind stablemate Jonbon last time out back in third.

With some strong form and a lenient mark of 130 for his handicap debut he looks a good bet for this event.

Colin Tizzard
Age: 6
Weight: 11-8
OR: 119
Days: 34

A very interesting event on the Cheltenham card is the Class 3 Mares Handicap Chase over 2m 4 1/2f and we are siding with Rose Of Arcadia who makes her chase debut.

The Colin Tizzard trained mare was a bright hurdler last term, taking out a good Novices' Hurdle at Wincanton in February and then backing that up at Newbury in Grade Two Mares Hurdle when a close fifth.

Kept over hurdles for her seasonal debut this term, she looked to need the run but was a solid third of seven behind two nice types for Alan King.

Always bought by Cheveley Park Stud to be a chaser, she makes her debut over fences in this event and having has the prep run over hurdles, she looks to have a big chance if being a natural over the bigger obstacles.

Extremely interesting runner.

Paul Nicholls
Age: 7
Weight: 11-0
OR: 147
Days: 13

The feature race of the afternoon at Prestbury Park on Friday is the Grade Three Handicap Chase over 3m2f and it sees many familiar fences.

We are siding with the Paul Nicholls trained Enrilo who was set to run a big race in the Ladbroke Trophy a few weeks back before taking a tumble.

Having been a fair hurdler, the seven year was sent chasing and on his second start got off the mark in a nice race at Exeter.

Shipped into Grade One company at Kempton he was pulled up with nothing going right, but after a few months off he returned in rude health to win at Newbury.

His big season target was the Grade Three bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown and in a dramatic race he finished first past the post but in the end was demoted to third.

Staying is his main attribute, which made the Ladbrokes Trophy such an appealing target off a mark of 147 and with Nicholls saying he was spot on for that he may have gone close if not for falling.

If able to get round on Friday he poses a huge threat.

Henry De Bromhead
Age: 8
Weight: 10-3
OR: 138
Days: 28

The penultimate event of the afternoon at jumps racing HQ is the Cross Country Handicap Chase and the horse who looks to have a big each way chance is Plan Of Attack for Henry De Bromhead.

The eight year old has been an up and down horse for the yard, always primed to run a big race but sometimes never fulfilling his promise.

One of his most promising runs to date came at the 2021 Cheltenham festival when travelling the best in the Kim Muir Handicap Chase to only fall at the third last.

This season he has been switched to Cross Country events and made his seasonal debut at the November meeting over the same course and distance and he was a pleasing fourth of 13.

He takes on three of the horses ahead of him that day, but he will be sure to come on for that run, especially racing off the same mark of 138, which looks well within himself.

Big player at the weights and prices.

Philip Hobbs
Age: 6
Weight: 11-12
OR: 151
Days: 27

The final event of the afternoon is the Class 2 Handicap Hurdle over three miles and although giving weight away to the entire field, Sporting John will be very tough to beat.

The six year old gelding has had a very up and down career, always looking to be something special but then always throwing in some poor performances along the way.

Having been a very smart novice hurdler when winning his first three events in taking style, he was then poor at the Cheltenham festival.

Sent chasing last season he needed his comeback run but then got off the mark in the Grade One Scilly Isles Novices' Chase at Sandown.

However, he was seen twice more over fences that term, falling at the festival and then being pulled up at the Grand National meeting.

Back this season he has been reverted to hurdles and made an impressive seasonal return when winning a Listed event over three miles at Prestbury Park, giving weight away all round.

He will do the same again on Friday and should be much fitter for his first event.

Still only six he has improvement left in him.
