Who To Follow On Saturday At Cheltenham

Horse To Follow - Cobra De Mai

One of the feature races on the Cheltenham card on Saturday is the Class 2 Handicap Chase over 3 miles 1 furlong and the horse that takes the eye is Cobra De Mai.

The Dan Skelton trained runner offers a lot of value in this betting market having given some solid outings at this track over the years.

Two starts ago the eight year old was a staying on sixth in the Ultima Handicap Chase at the festival which reads really well.

He made his seasonal debut at Fontwell where he looked like he needed the run and he should now be primed for this type of event, being 4lb lower than his sixth in the Ultima.

Trainer To Follow - Dan Skelton

Dan Skelton is one of the best British trainers in the sport, churning out winners year in year out at almost every jumps track around the country.

He has started this season like his last few, and at Cheltenham on Saturday he looks to have some really nice chances in the big races.

In the second race of the day he fields Not That Fuisse, who made a sterling seasonal debut at Perth last month and will be looking to back that up here.

The trainer also fields the eight year old Cobra De Mai that we have already put up as the horse to follow, but at 16/1 the horse represents big value.

Over the last two weeks the yard have been in flying form landing nine winners from 34 runners which sees the handler performing at a 26.47% strike rate.

Jockey To Follow - Harry Skelton

With us thinking Dan Skelton is due a good day in the saddle it can only mean that we believe Harry Skelton is also set for some winner across the card.

Along with the horses we have previously mentioned, Skelton also rides the favourite in the first Allmankind that loves this track and second favourite in the Pertemps Handicap hurdle with I'd Better Go Now.

Some huge chances for the experienced rider who has picked up some big scalps at the track over the years none less than the Champion Chase this year.

Over the last two weeks Skelton has been in fine form landing eight winners from 26 runners which sees the rider running at a 30.77% strike rate.
