14:10 RANDOX HEALTH COUNTY HANDICAP HURDLE
The County Hurdle is a flying 2m handicap hurdle with nearly 30 runners going to post.
They fly from the start and no jockeys give any favours away. You’ve got to travel and you’ve got to have plenty of class.
Aramon fits that bill. He ran very well last time out behind Honeysuckle in the Irish Champion Hurdle, doing his best work towards the end of the race.
He’s got himself nicely handicapped and, as a horse who ran very well in the Supreme last year, you know he acts around this course.
15:30 GOLD CUP
The Gold Cup is the ultimate test of a racehorse because you need a mixture of pace, stamina and superb jumping ability.
It’s very hard to win multiple Gold Cups but I do think Al Boum Photo has a better chance that most recent winners of this race, purely because he’s been so lightly campaigned ahead of the defence of his crown.
He’s got everything you need to be a Gold Cup horse, and in last year’s race he was staying on through the line. He showed no signs of fatigue on his only start this term and should be very tough to beat.
16:50 JOHNNY HENDERSON GRAND ANNUAL CHALLENGE CUP
Lisp is worth keeping on side in the Grand Annual for trainer Alan King, who has won this race with a novice before.
He has plenty of class and experience for a young horse, which is going to be needed in this race, where they go hell-for-leather from the off.
He’s been eye-catching in each of his three starts this term and has been held back for this race for the past six weeks. I do think he’s going to give a great account of himself.
17:30 MARTIN PIPE CONDITIONAL JOCKEYS’ HURDLE
The final race of the Cheltenham Festival is the Martin Pipe, and I’ve got two very strong fancies in this race.
Column of Fire has clearly been laid out for this race and has everything you need to be competitive.
He’s a strong traveller and has a decent turn of foot. From what I’ve seen of him this season, I expect him to be ridden handily and to make his move as they come down the hill.
They say trainers are creatures of habit and that could well be the case for Joseph O’Brien, who trained the winner of this race last year for the same owner and with the same promising young jockey on board.
Front View finished behind Envoi Allen earlier in the season and wasn’t totally dismissed that day.
He has since been impressive in a maiden hurdle victory at Cork and last time out suffered traffic and jumping issues when finishing a staying-on second behind Five O Clock.
I think he’s been mapped out for this and will be placed at the very least.
