With £10,000 up for grabs on Wednesday, here are Alan Alger's best horse racing tips for Cheltenham and Newmarket to get you started.



Top pick: Highway One O One | Second choice: Imperial Presence 

 This Grade 2 handicap chase has only been won twice in the last decade by a horse carrying more than 10st 12lb.

All of the winners during that time were 12/1 or shorter in the betting, so this doesn’t look a race for outsiders. Five favourites have been victorious in the last 10 seasons.

HIGHWAY ONE O ONE will be prominent in the betting and is quite a confident selection based on his form line with Aintree winner Kildisart.

He was second behind him here in January and hopefully won’t be too inconvenienced by the good ground, which led to his withdrawal on his last scheduled start.


Top pick: Gifted Master | Second choice: Dreamfield 

A small field for this Group 3 sprint.

Trainer Kevin Ryan has won this race in four of the last five seasons. The last two seasons he’s been victorious with Brando, who comes back as a seven-year-old to try and land the hat-trick here.

GIFTED MASTER is a course-and-distance winner who comes here fresh from a poor run in Meydan. This will be more to his liking and, on his best form, he looks a value bet.


Top pick: Global Spectrum | Second choice: Skardu 

A Classic trial for male horses, over the Guineas course and distance.

The favourite has won this race in five of the last ten years, though the last four have been unsuccessful. Last season’s winner, Masar, went on to win the Derby.

Godolphin duo Zakouski and Royal Marine are vying for position as market leader, but both look opposable on balance.

Set Piece will be popular after two good wins on the all-weather, but I really like the chances of GLOBAL SPECTRUM for the Gay Kelleway stable. He won well in Doha two months ago.


Top pick: Sir Ivan | Second choice: Dans Le Vent 

This is a handicap hurdle over three miles and, this late in the National Hunt season, we need to look for lightly-raced types in these staying races. Any horses that have had a tough campaign tend to struggle.

It's important to stress that the last 10 winners of this race had run no more than six times within that season prior to lining up here.

Horses carrying 11st 4lb or lower have won all of the last 10 renewals, with a wide range of prices winning during that time.

SIR IVAN is relatively lightly-raced and has performed well once before over course, distance and similar going way back in 2016. A return to those conditions could suit.

Do not discount the huge priced Dans Le Vent, though, who also ticks lots of boxes.
