🏆Cheltenham – ⏱1.30 – 🌦Heavy – 📏2m
Win – APPLES SHAKIRA
Very Impressive winning all three starts here for Nicky Henderson. Knows the course well and looks on of the smartest horses of the season. Justified Favourite.
Danger – STORMY IRELAND
Won on stable debut for Wullie Mullins who is having an excellent festival. Didn’t beat much that day but done it by nearly fifty lengths. Will be a big player if confirming that promise. A good option is to back TO PLACE at 5/4.
Rest of The Field
REDICEAN stands out with his frightening speed on the flat but I feel he will be found out with his jumping here. Mullins runs another three alongside Stormy Ireland but only really MR ADJUDICATOR has any pressing claims, he beat FARCLAS in a grade two last time and although Elliot is having a wonderful festival I don’t see him reversing the form here. GUMBALL is an attractive each way price at 50/1 but more than likely doesn’t have the class to keep up with these.
Apples Shakira is best priced at 7/4 with Betway
