Weatherbys Preview: Conditional Jockeys' Hurdle
Paul Jones of Weatherbys gives us his independent betting tips on all the races from this year's Cheltenham Festival.
No trends to work off and it looks impossible as the handicap will be so compressed with a bottom weight off about 11st 2lbs.
Sunnyhillboy will interest me if he runs here and I have a feeling that Great Endeavour may be the best of the Pipe mob.
But don’t rule out the Irish and take note of Eric McNamara’s Faltering Fullback as he has taken out his other entries and he has a very good record in the similar race at the Open Meeting back in November.
Why he loves these conditional jockey handicap hurdles I have no idea but he does.I think he will run as is already jocked up (few are so far).
Perhaps it may be better to look at last-time-out winners given their superb record in handicap hurdles at the Festival winning over half of such races since 1993.
