A two-parter this week – Tips and comment on Cheltenham. This first, though, as they’re almost OFF for the first day of the 2021 Flat season. Also The tips for The Dubai World Cup and the first race of the 2021 Grand Prix season.

Talking of wheels almost certainly coming off, here is the tip sheet – I wish my spell checker would stop saying typos.
