Captain Guinness 25/1

Henry de Bromhead accounted for the favourite (Notebook) and winner (Put The Kettle On) in this year’s renewal and Captain Guinness looks ready made for a career over fences.

This yard’s horses are renowned for improving over larger obstacles and the manner in which he tanked through the Supreme suggests he is a proper Grade1 animal.

If he finished off his race there is no way he would be 25/1 right now so this looks good value.

Elixir D’ainay 50/1

In a similar fashion to Captain Guinness, Elixir D’ainay was a real eye-catcher in the festival opener and although you can’t predict what will unfold up the Cheltenham hill, it is hard to have seen him outside the frame with a clear round.

This makes 50/1 look huge value for the Arkle. Willie Mullins has a good record in the race and he is bred to appreciate fences.

The fall was no fault of his own (Asterion Forlonge jumped into him) and just like the first selection, if he had seen out the race he wouldn’t be 50/1 in the market.
