Punters’ pockets have been replenished, Willie’s back in the winner’s enclosure and everything is looking rosy again following a thrilling Thursday at the Cheltenham Festival.
Just as we predicted!
But there’s no time to gloat, it’s time to go back in for the biggest day of them all.
The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the centrepiece of the Friday, nay the entire Festival, and we’re happy to take on the market leaders in this latest Lucky 15.
But before that, Landofhopeandglory is our pick in the Triumph Hurdle. On paper he might appear to be the third string of a powerful JP McManus-owned trio but the ground will suit and he can go well for last year’s winning connections.
Mick Jazz can strike for the Gordon Elliott-Jack Kennedy partnership in the County Hurdle. His record is 1231 since joining Elliott’s yard, including a Listed win at Punchestown last time out.
Jessica Harrington’s Sizing John is tipped to land an Irish Gold Cup-Cheltenham Gold Cup double with both trainer and jockey Robbie Power believing the extra two furlongs will be no problem at all.
Rounding off our quartet is Coo Star Sivola in the 16:50. Lizzie Kelly’s mount is being well-backed to take the spoils and we’re jumping on the bandwagon following an impressive course and distance victory on New Year’s Day.
Go each-way and fill your boots.
Here are our Lucky 15 selections:
1. Landofhopeandglory (13:30)
2. Mick Jazz (14:10)
3. Sizing John (15:30)
4. Coo Star Sivola (16:50)
