Weatherbys Preview: Ballymore Novices' Hurdle
Paul Jones of Weatherbys gives us his independent betting tips on all the races from this year's Cheltenham Festival.
I think Karabak will go off favourite ahead of Diamond Harry.
In fact, I can also see Mikael D’Haguenet starting ahead of Diamond Harry in the betting who I think will be a drifter.
I would prefer Thornton but McCoy is no bad substitute on Karabak now his boss has bought the horse.
I hope it doesn’t turn genuine soft as would greatly fear the big Irish horse if that is the case but I still think Karabak is the most professional and ready-now horse and will take some beating.
