IT’S inconceivable to tackle the champ within the Unibet Preventing Fifth Hurdle.
BUVEUR D’AIR was most spectacular within the Champion Hurdle after switching from fences final season.
Nicky Henderson’s ace went on to a snug success within the Aintree Hurdle and has solely been overwhelmed as soon as over jumps.
There’s nothing in his class lining up towards him right now so it’s arduous to see something however one other Buveur D’Air victory.
Irving seems the apparent forecast wager. He’s going for his third win on this race having triumphed 12 months in the past and in 2015.
His nostril defeat of prime mare Apple’s Jade in final yr’s race reveals how good he’s on his day and he does appear greatest when contemporary. However considering he can hassle Buveur D’Air is stretching it.
Flying Tiger, Katgary and Mirsaale are all a way off this degree.
GIVE the bookies Wak.
Sue Smith’s WAKANDA gained this race two years in the past and he went on to comply with up at Ascot. Life was powerful for him final season however he did run nicely behind Definitly Crimson a few occasions.
His comeback second to As De Mee was extra prefer it as nicely and he’s certain to be primed for right now.
Beware The Bear is the one I concern most. It’s arduous to crab his Ascot defeat of Singlefarmpayment on his first run of final season and he stays comparatively unexposed.
It didn’t occur for Bishops Court docket final season. He was fourth on this race final season and has now slipped to a good weight.
With coach Kerry Lee in first rate type he is without doubt one of the extra doubtless contenders.
Yala Enki will love the testing floor. He didn’t run in any respect badly on his return to motion within the Badger Ales at Wincanton and the return to a left-handed observe will assist. High weight, nevertheless, gained’t.
Begin your Cheltenham pockets right now
The street to Cheltenham begins HERE.
Guess £10 or extra at any of the races at these conferences and Solar Bets gives you a £2 free wager to make use of on the Cheltenham Pageant.
AIR HORSE ONE is about for take-off.
He rattled up a hat-trick of wins final season and went on to hit the body within the County Hurdle on the Cheltenham Pageant.
His fourth behind subsequent Greatwood Hurdle winner Elgin at Ascot on his return to motion couldn’t have labored out significantly better and he clearly units the usual.
The handicapper retains making life powerful for him but it surely’s arduous to see how he gained’t go shut with the return to 2m4f in his favour.
Outdated Guard’s third within the Greatwood at Cheltenham provides him an opportunity and he’s clearly again to someplace close to his greatest following a respiratory operation in the summertime.
Dino Velvet promised to grow to be a wise juvenile final season. That didn’t fairly occur however I’m fairly certain he’s nicely weighted. He ran as if in want of the race at Chepstow final time and is attention-grabbing.
Court docket Minstrel’s victory within the Silver Trophy at Chepstow is red-hot type. I’m simply frightened the bottom is likely to be a bit sticky for him.

TAKE the High road.
Talented HIGH BRIDGE was smart in bumpers and he won his first three hurdles starts.
The Supreme Novices’ Hurdle was a step too far but he showed there’s more wins in him when third to Elgin in a hot Ascot handicap last month. He looks rock-solid.
Charli Parcs has a big reputation but he’s also got the weight to go with it. His Triumph Hurdle sixth was no disgrace but he does need to prove himself on today’s softer ground.
There’s a fair chance he’ll also be better for the run.
Amour De Nuit has done well this year but his best form has come on faster ground.
If he handles conditions he would have to be considered but this is much more competitive than the races he’s been winning.
Mount Mews could be a bigger danger. He chased home Pingshou in a Grade 1 novices’ hurdle at Aintree’s Grand National meeting.
His Ayr comeback should have sharpened him up and he remains a horse of great potential.
MAGIC up some money with A GENIE IN ABOTTLE in the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase.
He’s been rubbing along nicely this season. His comeback defeat of Mala Beach at Galway in October has worked out really well and it was a strong performance to see off Tiger Roll at Wexford.
Noel Meade’s Irish raider had some useful form last term and he has clearly improved since last season.
I’m expecting him to sit just behind the pace and he looks to have a great chance of becoming the first Irish winner of this race since 1980.
Total Recall and Pleasant Company – both trained by Willie Mullins – complete a three-pronged challenge from Ireland.
The way Total Recall took apart the Munster National field on his first start for Mullins was most impressive.
He’s shot up 18lbs in the weights but I’m more concerned that his hold-up style of racing has not really worked in this contest in recent years.
That’s also my worry for Singlefarmpayment. He’s sure to win a nice pot and he made a promising return when runner-up to Cogry at Cheltenham. If the pace doesn’t hold up he’s a big player.
I was tempted to side with 2015 Gold Cup hero Coneygree.
It’s easy to put a line through his comeback run and he showed he’s still a force when a close third to Sizing John at the Punchestown Festival.
Missed Approach and Cogry look best of the outsiders.

TAKE a look at DUKE OF NAVAN.
He ran a belter on his first run of the season when third behind Baby King at Aintree. My fancy looked more in need of the run that the winner and he’s 3lbs better off today.
That was Baby King’s second victory from just three chase starts and he fell in the other. His excellent record when fresh suggests he won’t improve much for his first run of the season.
Overtown Express is interesting. He was let down by his jumping more than once last season. If those problems have been ironed out by in-form trainer Harry Fry he would be dangerous.
The ground might be too soft for Theinval but Just Cameron has slipped to a more manageable handicap mark.
