Who To Follow At Cheltenham On Day Two

Horse To Follow - Mister Fisher

The feature race of the day is the 2 mile 4 furlongs Paddy Power Handicap Chase and Mister Fisher for Nicky Henderson is our horse to follow in the race.

This season the six year old has been tipped to really break the mould and have a breakthrough campaign over fences.

Having been a smart horse over hurdles, landing races like the Grade Two Supreme Novices' Hurdle Trial at Haydock, he stepped over fences last term and had a pleasing year.

Having finished second at Warwick on chasing debut, he went to Cheltenham in a decent Novices' event and used the step up in trip to full effect when winning nicely.

He then went to Doncaster and landed the Grade Two Novices' Chase and used that to finish a strong fourth in the Grade One Marsh Novices' Chase at the festival.

He starts his season off in this Handicap event and if being tuned up has to be on the shortlist, being a course and distance winner and proven in better company.

Trainer To Follow - Colin Tizzard

Colin Tizzard has been a leading trainer in British jumps racing for many years and although having a slow start to the season, looks to have his horses in fine form now.

After landing a quick double at Exeter on Wednesday he has now had five winners from his last 36 runners which sees him currently running at around a 14% strike rate.

On Saturday he has a handful of live chances with Slate House his big one in the Paddy Power Gold Cup and in the second race of the day he fields Lamanver Pippin, who should give a bold bid.

Jockey To Follow - Robbie Power

Robbie Power is another racing figure that has been a star over the jumps for many years and although having a slow start to the British campaign having moved over for the season, he is starting to find the winning formula.

The Gold Cup and Grand National winning rider has had four winners over the last two weeks and can add to his 14% strike rate with a nice bunch of rides across the three days at Cheltenham.

He has ridden Slate House to a Grade One victory and looked the sure winner of the Paddy Power Gold Cup when on him last year in the race when falling and he will be looking to put that right at the weekend.

Power also sits on the unbeaten Gordon Elliott horse Duffle Coat in the first race of the day on Saturday and could start off a nice day for the experienced rider.
