Weatherbys Preview: Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle
Paul Jones of Weatherbys gives us his independent betting tips on all the races from this year's Cheltenham Festival.
I want to be against the likely favourite Alexander Severus as think he could have mental problems and he is 20lbs higher in Britain which is a lot.
Amore Mio and Miss Sarene will score highly on trends and I would respect them for sure as I would Balzaccio following his wind operation.
With Nictory Vote out of the race who was my original fancy, I have to like Ronaldo Des Mottes as he was attempting to give him 7lbs when they met last month which may have proven to be an impossible task but was not disgraced going down by 3½ lengths to my original fancy.
He looks the Pipe number one now Mr Thriller was beaten in the Imperial Cup and this stable have won and finished second and third in the two years since the new man has been at the helm and, like the last three winners, he was originally from France, will be in top third in the weights like all previous runners of the race and had exactly three runs to qualify so fits lots of trends boxes.
