Who To Follow At Cheltenham On Saturday - 22/10/22

Trainer To Follow - Fergal O'Brien

Fergal O'Brien is sending a strong team to Cheltenham across both days, but possibly his best comes on Saturday with some strong chances.

His first runner of the afternoon comes in the opener with No No Maestro looking to make it back to back wins having landed a race in July at Worcester.

Captain Cattistock is a thorough stayer that will love the 3m1f distance and having won his last two events, last time out at Prestbury Park.

O'Brien sends a few runners into the Pertemps qualifier with Ted's Friend, Silver Sheen and Ask Dillon all holding each way chances.

Other runners for the yard that could go well is Art Approval in the Novices' Chase and Dreaming Diamond, Mamoon Star and School Days Are over in the bumper.

The handler goes into the Cheltenham meeting sporting a 21% strike rate for the last two weeks, managing to land six winners from his last 28 rides.

Jockey To Follow - Adrian Heskin

Leading rider Adrian Heskin has a handful of nice rides at Prestbury Park on Saturday starting in the opening event of the afternoon with Shearer for Paul Nicholls looking to make it back to back wins.

In the 3m1f Handicap Chase he rides The Wolf who is a horse that holds big potential but is yet to fully show it and hopefully the latest wind operation sparks him into life.

In the final event of the day Heskin rides Strong Leader for Olly Murphy who was exceptional on debut and should build on that run in this better field.

Heskin heads into the meeting in fine form currently running at a strike rate of 50% for the last two weeks with two wins from four rides.
