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

Horse To Follow - Third Time Lucki

The Grade Two Supreme Novices' Hurdle Trial race sees our horse to follow for the meeting with the Dan Skelton trained Third Time Lucki looking to have a huge chance in this event.

Having finished second in a point to point he was given to the Skelton yard and he ran in four bumpers last term winning two of them and placing on his final start.

He managed to finish a staying on fourth in the Grade One Champion Bumper behind Ferny Hollow, Appreciate It and Queens Brook, that looks to be strong form.

This term the five year old has been seen twice over hurdles and is currently unbeaten, winning easily on debut at Uttoxeter and franked that at Warwick next time out.

This event requires a step up, but from what he has showed to date and his progressive nature in bumpers, he looks the one to beat.

Trainer To Follow - Paul Nicholls

Paul Nicholls has been superb from the first race of the jumps season, landing winners all over the place and at Cheltenham on Sunday could add to his ever growing tally.

The Ditcheat handler over the last two weeks can't put a foot wrong with his horses currently running at a 36.67% strike rate after having 22 winners from 60 runners.

On Sunday he fields a strong hand in the Grade Three Greatwood Hurdle with the likes of Thyme White and Sir Physco having live chances and he runs 2019 Arkle winner Duc Des Genievres for the first time since joining the yard from Willie Mullins.

Jockey To Follow - Robbie Power

Robbie Power 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 from Ireland, he is starting to find the winning formula and has some superb chances on Sunday.

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.

After landing a double at Exeter on Wednesday he heads in the meeting in fine form and with a handful of superb rides including, The Big Breakaway on debut, West Approach in the Handicap Chase and the favourite Weseekhimhere in the final race for Gordon Elliott, Power could have a day to remember at Cheltenham.
