Weatherbys Preview: Christies's Foxhunter Chase
Paul Jones of Weatherbys gives us his independent betting tips on all the races from this year's Cheltenham Festival.
Southwestern is a value each-way bet. A good win between the flags last weekend should have set him up perfectly for this and he is simply too big a price on his running-on fifth last season and then his run in the biggest hunter chase in Ireland on his next start at the Punchestown Festival when leading only to fall two out when still in a clear lead.
Agus A Vic was the chief beneficiary of his fall and I reckon he would be near enough favourite if he was running here.
The new kid on the block is Cappa Bleu but he has no wins under Rules and Juveugneur looks the best of the Irish and has a win and two places at the Festival already to his name in handicaps.
