Who To Follow On Day One Of The November Meeting At Cheltenham

Horse To Follow - Beat The Judge

The Paddy Power Handicap Chase over two miles sees a decent field of chasers go to post and the Gary Moore trained Beat The Judge has a huge chance.

The five year old has been a fairly consistent type for Moore recently, running through the summer and in his four runs has not finished outside the places, whilst winning his two events.

Having started the season in July he finished a good third at Stratford and backed that up, which set him up for two wins at Newton Abbot and Fontwell.

He stepped up to better company at Cheltenham last time out and ran a superb contest behind the smart Rouge Vif, which looks some of the stand out form in the race.

Running off the same mark today makes him one to watch at a nice price.

Trainer To Follow - Fergal O'Brien

Fergal O'Brien has a superb start to the season already managing to land 50 winners already and on Friday at Cheltenham he has some nice priced horses that have some big chances.

O'Brien during the last two weeks has managed to land some superb winners and sees him entering the November meeting in fine form, having nine winners from 39 runners which sees him posing a 23.08% strike rate.

In the Grade Two Ballymore Novices' Hurdle he fields Polish who has a strong each way chance at a double figure prices and in the last he has The Bees Knees, who is currently favourite and those runners look his best chances on the day.

Jockey To Follow - Harry Skelton

Finally, Harry Skelton has already racked up numerous winners for the season, teaming up with his Brother Dan and at Cheltenham on Friday the rider has a nice book of rides.

Skelton is currently running at a strike rate of 25.53% after having 12 winners from 47 runners over the last two weeks and it would not be surprise to see him add to that tally across the three days at Prestbury Park.

His best chance on Friday comes in the Novices' Chase contest where Protektorat is a previous winner over course and distance at the track and should build on emphatic chase debut.
