Weatherbys Preview: Cross Country Chase
Paul Jones of Weatherbys gives us his independent betting tips on all the races from this year's Cheltenham Festival.
Look no further than the Irish and Enda Bolger in particular and he can win his 12th race over these fences.
L’Ami would be my fancy as he ran in both of the key trials notably the P. P. Hogan at Punchestown and the last three winners of that race went on to win here.
I felt his second to Garde Champetre in the December handicap was little more than a prelude to this and I expect J T McNamara to be working much harder this time.
The rejuvenated Pass Me By has run two good races over these fences this season and went well for a long way in the Eider until falling at the final fence when in third and think he can fare best of the home defence.
