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.
