Who To Follow At Cheltenham On Friday

Horse To Follow - Ask For Glory

The first race of the of the season at Prestbury Park is the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle over 2 miles 5 furlongs and Paul Nicholls looks to have a strong hand in the race and we believe this horse should be followed throughout the season.

The trainer has made a superb start to the season and will be looking to add to that at this meeting with Ask For Glory in the first.

The six year old joined the yard back in 2018 off the back of landing a decent point to point and on his first start in a bumper at Chepstow, he got off the mark in fine style.

Off the back of just one run for the yard he was put into the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham and finished ninth of 14, running behind some top class horses.

He was next seen in November for the new season and stepping up to his first time over hurdles he was a fair fourth of 16 running behind stars like Son Of Camas and King Roland.

Like the others he franked the form of that maiden by getting off the mark at Wincanton in February and that was the last time he was seen on a racecourse.This race looks a stepping stone to bigger things this term.

Trainer To Follow - Nicky Henderson

Nicky Henderson is one of the most successful trainers at Cheltenham in its history and he will be looking to keep his fine run at the track going this season.

On Friday, the six time champions trainer has a handful of big chances across the day with his stand out runners looking to be Fix Sun in the big fielded handicap hurdle, Pipesmoker in the maiden hurdle and Fussil Raffles in the Novices' Chase.

With Paul Nicholls already making a fast start in his bid for the trainers championship, Henderson will be trying to follow suit and he enters the meeting on Friday having had five winners from his last 22 runners over the last two weeks, which gives him a strike rate of 22.73%,

Jockey To Follow - Sam Twiston-Davies

Finally, the jockey who could have a very successful day is the well known Sam Twiston-Davies who has some nice chances on board his fathers horses.

Twiston-Davies has made a bright start to the jumps season landing some nice winners and he will be looking to add to his 14% strike rate over the last 14 days.

On Friday the 28 year old rider has some interesting rides on Mossy Fen who landed a Grade Two Hurdle last term and also Scardura, who is weighted to go well in the Handicap Chase.
