CHELTENHAM 12:45 Colditz Castle 1pt e/w Demon Fou 1pt e/w

David Pipe’s booking of Jonjo Jnr on Duc De Beaucherne is eye-catching. However, I have opted for two at longer odds. Alan King’s Colditz Castle looks the type to appreciate the trip whilst I think the handicapper has been lenient with Demon Fou.

CHELTENHAM 13:15 Fact Of The Matter 1pt e/w Solstice Star 1pt e/w

I backed Fact Of The Matter ante-post. This is now somewhat of an irritation as he is now longer odds. This is driven by the ground conditions and a, seemingly, wide spread belief that Snowden’s gelding may not handle it. I’m not convinced he won’t – progeny of Brian Boru tend to do well in the heavy and his dam has produced Battle Of Midway and Manofthemountain who have both won in the soft.

Just in case I’m missing something, a good each way alternative at double-figure odds is the well handicapped Solstice Star.

CHELTENHAM 15:00 Quel Destin 1pt e/w Quoi De Neuf 1pt e/w

Excellent, wide open handicap hurdle which I narrowed down to Benny’s Bridge, Zanza and the two above. Have changed my mind countless times. Quel Destin is carrying a lot of weight but he is an honest sort who will run his race and can definitely handle the conditions. Evan William’s Quoi De Neuf showed eye-catching improvement at Chepstow and may be progressive.

CHELTENHAM 16:00 Brief Ambition 1pt e/w

The favourite in the Bumper is at a silly price so I will risk an e/w on the in-form Fergal O’Brien’s Brief Ambition who Paddy Brennan has chosen over the yard’s other entrant.


Hobb’s promising young chaser was a strong fancy for mine for Cheltenham on Friday. Given the postponement, Hobbs has pointed him at the Sussex National on the Sabbath. With ground conditions to suit I think he is a very good bet.

By suscribing to Raceweb, you’ll receive notification of every story, tip and article we post.

You’ll see every tip for every sport, by every writer first. The moment we print it, you’ll know it.

PLUS, whenever we issue a special report on, say Cheltenham or Royal Ascot, you’ll be the first to know!


Annual domain registrations, site hosting, software licences, form guides, research costs and a host of other minor and but not inconsequential outgoings are the burden for all website owners.

Even the smallest donation can make the difference between the Off and On switch.

It’s not just that once in a while we actually prove accurate, and you possibly make a bit of pocket money, but occasionally, we might perhaps suggest a view that could possibly change someone’s mind. For the better.

That’s a lot of Maybes and Possiblies, but sometimes we have to try and change a plan or encourage them to move a mountain, and if that means we make you smile, or shout with anger, or shake with laughter, then Huzzah!

That’s your donation that did that. Thank You.
