Horse To Follow - Paisley Park - Cheltenham

Paisley Park is back at Cheltenham this weekend as he heads into the Grade Two Cleeve Hurdle again before the festival and hopefully he can reproduce his superb performance from last season.

He came onto the scene last season at Aintree when he took a Class 2 Handicap over two and a half miles, from there it was unthinkable of what progression he could of actually produced but he stepped up in trip to three miles and took to it like a duck to water.

Arguably one of his greatest runs during the season was on his second start when he landed the Grade Three Handicap Hurdle at Haydock, somehow getting up late in the day to see off two other horses.

Ascot was next on the agenda in the Grade 1 Long Walk Hurdle and this was the geldings biggest test to date and he did what he does best coming from off the pace and off the bridle early to steam up by the leaders late in the day and land the contest.

Paisley Park landing the Grade One was the yards first ever black type victory which was huge for Emma Lavelle as she is a fairly small yard compared to others in the sport and it was a huge occasion for connections also, with his owner Andrew Gemmell being blind.

Cheltenham was next up in the Grade 2 Cleeve Hurdle with the overall goal being the Stayers Hurdle at the festival with this being seen as a prep run and he bolted up again, leaving his odds for the four-day meeting slashed massively.

March came around quickly and Paisley Park was being labelled one of the bankers of the week, which is unheard of in a big fielded race like the Stayers Hurdle but like he had done all season he hacked up and it turned out to be one of the fairy-tale moments of the 2019 Cheltenham festival.

Now a fan favourite, many punters were very apprehensive about where he would start off his campaign this season with the big aim again being to defend his Stayers Hurdle title.

He started this season in the same form as last term by extending his unbeaten run to six races after seeing off some top horses including Thistlecrack when landing the Grade Two Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury.

Trainer To Follow - Nicky Henderson - Doncaster

Nicky Henderson as ever fields some strong runners at the weekend but instead of looking at his horses at Cheltenham on the weekend it may be worth taking a look at who he has up north at Doncaster.

We like the look of two of his horses that head to Town Moor and the first one we want to mention is Floressa.

The five year old this season has done very little wrong winning on her debut at Worcester before finishing a very narrow second to Silver Forever.

She then went on to reverse the form the next time the two met at Newbury and Paul Nicholls' horse has since gone on to frank that form making Floressa one to be respected in this field.

The final runners is the well known Ok Corral who has been very below par on both his runs this season but now at a big price, winning last time out at Listed Level and loving soft ground he has to be in the frame.

Jockey Derek O'Connor has come over from Ireland to ride the gelding aswell which looks a huge plus and gives the idea that he will be heading for the National hunt Chase at the festival.

Jockey To Follow - Brian Hughes

Brian Hughes is a jockey in some of the best form of his life with the experienced rider seeking his first ever jockeys title currently leading the injured Richard Johnson.

He has some nice rides on Saturday at Doncaster and we think he at least has two big chances to add to his ever growing tally of winners.

The first horse we want to mention that he rides is Agamemmon and he enters this contest off the back of comfortable win at Sedgefield last time out.

He is dropping back two furlongs which could be a positive already proving his staying credentials and should be able to dominate towards the end of the contest.

In the final contest of the day he sits on Kitty Hall in the bumper contest and She started her career off at Kelso at the back end of last season finishing a decent third in a Class 3 bumper and when returning for her seasonal bow in December she managed to get off the mark in good style which makes her a big player.
