Charlie –

Cheltenham

1.45 Arkle Challenge Trophy Trial Novices Chase

Selection – Banbridge– 6 Yr old Gelding out of Doyen and Old Carton Lass. Has had 10 career starts winning 6 times. The wins have came over the Flat, Hurdles and Fences, has one Flat win at Killarney on the 10th May 2021 when beating Goldwin Magic by 8 and 1/2 lengths. Has won 4 times from 7 starts over hurdles, including here when landing the Martin Pipe when beating Cobblers Dream by 1 and 1/2 lengths. Won his only start over fences at Gowran Park on most recent start on the 1st October when beating Indigo Breeze by 8 and 1/2 lengths. Biggest threat to the selection comes in the shape of Tommy’s Oscar who has won 9 times from 16 career starts including 5 wins from last 6 runs, although has only won against 1 rival in sole start over fences at Carlisle last time out when winning by a head .

2.20 Gold Cup Handicap Chase

Selection – Stolen Silver – 7 Yr old Gelding out of Lord Du Sud and Change Partner. Has had 19 career starts winning 4 times. Has won twice over hurdles and twice over fences. Has ran here 6 times has 1 win and has placed 2nd twice, finished 4th once and has been pulled up once and unseated jock once. Won on most recent outing here in April this year when beating Simply The Betts by 11 lengths with Coole Cody a further 14 lengths adrift in 3rd. If reproducing that here today that should be enough to gain another victory, biggest danger to the selection comes in the shape of French Dynamite who has 3 wins from last 5 starts.

2:20 – Gold Cup Handicap Chase

Selection: Stolen Silver

The first big race of the jumps season at Cheltenham sees several contenders in with a chance of landing this big pot. Stolen Silver seems to enjoy running at Cheltenham as his course form figures of U2P214 would largely suggest. Sam Thomas has his stable in good nick coming into this meeting and Stolen Silver has a lot going for him today. The son of Lord Du Sud is progressing nicely and signed off his campaign last season with an emphatic win over C&D in a Grade 2 in April. Another positive for Stolen Silver is that good ground is in his favour as his best form is undoubtedly on a sound surface. He has a bit of pace does Stolen Silver and if he can jump as well as he did last April then he should be bang there up the hill. He has a big chance in my book. Paul Nichols has a solid record in this contest and his Il Ridoto is a big danger in my opinion.

 2:35 – Golden Rose Stakes (Listed)

Selection: Summerghand

Backing Summerghand comes with its risks but It’s hard to ignore his claims today as David O’Meara’s star sprinter has been in excellent form of late. As he proved last time out at Ascot on Champions Day when a terrific second in the Sprint over his favourite distance of 6F. Before that came victories in big handicaps at Ayr’s Gold Cup meeting & York’s Ebor meeting, where crucially he got a fast pace to aim at as he is famously known as a hold up horse. They usually go at a good clip at Lingfield over the sprint distances so I am hoping my selection can slingshot off the home bend and fly home from the rear. He has been freshened up since Ascot and if he replicates his Champions Day performance then it will take a big effort to beat him if he gets a clear run. Summerghand does have a win over C&D to his name as well and commands the utmost respect in this company. Another Romance could go well for each way punters here, I think there is more improvement to come from him.
