Dan Skelton gives his Cheltenham views
Paul Nicholls' assistant trainer Dan Skelton has given us his thoughts in the build up to the Cheltenham Festival.
Skelton gives us his thoughts on all of Nicholls' key runners at the highlight of the National Hunt season as well as telling us how the bad weather affected the horses training regime.
He admits that it is the strongest team of hurdlers that they have ever sent to Cheltenham with Celestial Halo and Big Bucks among others.
Skelton tips The Nightingale as a dark horse in the Ballymore Properties Novices' Hurdle. While at the same time he is looking forward to another classic Gold Cup with last year's Nicholls 1-2-3 of Denman, Kauto Star and Neptune Collonges all set to do battle again.
The assistant trainer also talks about 'the best chaser around' Master Minded. And how he hopes for a winner on the Tuesday as it takes the pressure off.
