Day two of the Cheltenham Festival with the highlight of the day being the Champion Chase featuring Douvan, Altior and Min.

1.30 – Cheltenham – Wednesday 13th March 2019:

Ballymore Novices´ Hurdle (Registered As Baring Bingham Novices´ Hurdle) Grade 1 (CLASS 1) (4yo+):

Distance: 2 miles 5 furlongs on the Old Course.

The Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle is open to Novice Hurdlers of four years and upwards and is afforded Grade One status. It has a habit of producing classier horses than either the Supreme or the Triumph. Unlike the Supreme this race tends to be run at a steadier pace and suits speedier types who settle rather than stayers at the trip, although the slower ground this year could make this more of a test than usual. It’s a race where the classier types tend to prevail and those toward the fore of the market are the best angle into the race. This race has been an excellent trial for the Champion Hurdle. Given they tend to go relatively steady this race is not suited to keen types who are better off in the Supreme. A speedy type who has shown high class Novice form is the ideal type.

Positive Trends to consider:

The last 15 winners were aged between 5 and 6 years old. (<5 and >6 are 0 from 42)
The last 15 winners had an OR of 131+
The last 15 winners had 2-14 previous career starts

14 of the last 15 winners were IRE or FR bred
14 of the last 15 winners had 1-5 previous Hurdle starts
14/of the last 15 winners were turning out within 28-80 days of a previous run. (<28 and >80 days are 1 from 73)
14 of the last 15 winners had a top 2 finish last time out (those outside the top 2 last time out are 1 from 60)
13 of the last 19 winners won last time out
14 of the last 15 winners in a Class 1 or Class 2 level Non-Handicap Hurdle last time out

The Irish have won 8 of the last 13
In the last 8 renewals Irish-trained horses have filled 14 of the 24 top 3 places
18 of the last 20 winners were NH bred
Look for past Irish point-to-point winners (5 of the last 9 begin their careers in Irish points)
Respect Willie Mullins – 4 winners and 7 placed in last 14 years

Negative Trends to note:

Only one winner aged older than 6 has won since 1974
Avoid 4 year-olds who have won just one renewal since 1991
Horses aged 7 or older are 0 from 54 since 1988
Only two of the last 33 winners came from outside the top 5 in the betting
The last 16 Challow Hurdle winners have all been beaten
Avoid ex-flat horses, since 2005 all have been beaten

Analysis:

Champ and Battloverdoyen head the market for this opening race on day two. Champ is top rated and has put together a progressive profile. After going down by a neck on his hurdling debut he has rattled up a four timer, culminating in an easy victory in the Grade One Challow Hurdle at Newbury in December. That win followed on from an easy victory in a good quality handicap from a mark of 139. He has won his races on ground from good through to soft and he jumps and travels well. He has never been campaigned over two miles over hurdles so whether he has the all round speed, which is a trait that winners of this race commonly have, is open to debate. He is older than a typical winner of this race and he bids to be the first horse to win this race and the Challow Hurdle in 17 years. Battleoverdoyen has the better profile when it comes to satisfying the trends of a typical winner of this race but he faces much softer ground than he has encountered before. That may prove no barrier but he faces several in opposition who have already proven themselves in such conditions. Brewin’upastorm is highly regarded by Olly Murphy and we saw his capabilities when his two horses filled the places behind the winner in the Supreme Novices’ yesterday. However, at bigger prices, slight preference is for City Island andSams Profile.

City Island has been first passed the post in all three of his starts over hurdles and, although he has yet to race in Graded company, his form ties in with Battleoverdoyen in their defeats of Getareason. Subsequent easy victories haven’t told us much, although he easily beat the now 137 rated Dallas Des Pictons over two miles at Leopardstown in December, but he gives the strong impression that there is plenty more to come. The absence of Graded form and the wearing of a tongue tie (which none of the last 15 winners did) are seen as negatives but they won’t stop him winning this if he is good enough. His Trainer may not be one of the Irish ‘big guns’ but he has trained a Grand National winner so he is more than capable.

Sams Profile was just under three lengths behind Battleoverdoyen at Naas last time out but he raced keenly and initially jumped poorly so he did well to finish as close as he did. He will need to eradicate those errors today but, if he does, he has a chance of at least getting closer to his conqueror, especially having proven himself on deep ground. He was a winner over two miles at Cork in November and came second to Albert Bartlett bound Derrinross over three miles in soft/heavy ground at the same track the following month. He has a decent cruising speed and that, allayed with his stamina, make him an ideal type for a race of this nature. He is the only representative from his yard at this Festival.

Selections: (outlay – 4.5 pts)

City Island – 2 pts win. Available at 15/2. (SkyBet – Money back as cash if the horse loses (max refund – £20))

Sams Profile – 1.25 pts e/w. Available at 11/1. (Generally available – 1/5 odds first 4)

2.10 – Cheltenham – Wednesday 13th March 2019:

RSA Insurance Novices’ Chase (Grade 1) (CLASS 1) (5yo+):

Distance: Three miles 80 yards on the Old Course.

The RSA is afforded Grade One status and is open to Novice Chasers of five years old and upwards. The introduction of the JLT and the opening up of the four miler has led to field sizes shrinking in the RSA and it’s not as attritional as it once was. However horses still need to jump and stay well.

Positive Trends to consider:

22 of the last 26 winners were novice hurdling the previous season
The last 15 winners were rated 140+
The last 15 winners had 7-18 career starts
The last 15 winners had 3-6 starts in current season
The last 15 winners had a previous outing between 21 and 75 days prior to the race.
The last 15 winners had a top 3 finish last time out
9 of the last 13 winners won last time out
The last 15 winners ran in a chase over 20 furlongs+ last time out.
14 of the last 15 had 2-5 previous chase starts
14 of the last 15 winners won 1 of their last 3 starts
14 of the last 15 winners had previously run at Grade One level
14 of the last 15 winners had 4-7 starts over the last 365 days
14 of the last 15 winners were IRE or GB bred
Irish bred horses are 18 from the last 22
6 of the last 10 winners were trained in Ireland
13 of the last 15 winners were aged 7 or 8 years old.
9 of the last 11 winners were 7 years old.
9 of the last 12 winners had raced at the Festival the previous year
5 of the last 9 winners ran in the Albert Bartlett the previous season
8 of the last 12 winners had won a Grade 1 or 2 Chase
Look for horses that ran that same calendar year (51 of the last 52 winners had)
6 of the last 12 favourites won (50%)
4 of the last 10 winners ran in the Flogas Chase at Leopardstown that season.
Trainers Nicky Henderson, Willie Mullins and Paul Nicholls often do well in the race

Negative Trends to note:

There has been no winner aged 9 or older since 1992
Just 4 winners younger than 7 have won since 1978
Avoid horses that have fallen before over fences
Avoid unbeaten horses over fences
Avoid horses that have had 2 full seasons over hurdles prior to going Chasing.
Just 1 of the last 19 winners had run less than 3 times over fences
All 21 winners of the Kauto Star Novices’ Chase at Kempton (formerly the Feltham) have lost
Horses in headgear are 0 from 24.

Analysis:

RSA winners tend to have a short career over hurdles, typically spending just the one season over the smaller obstacles. Horses that were earmarked as Chasers at an early stage tend to improve past those that spent an extended spell over hurdles. Graded form in Novice Chases is important. Horses need to have been in the heat of battle with good class horses prior to running in this race. It used to pay to ignore those with high hurdle ratings in favour of the slow maturing type that never showed much over hurdles and had been trained with a Chasing career specifically in mind, but the landscape is changing. None of the first six winners this century earned a RPR over hurdles above 134 but seven of the last twelve winners had a hurdles RPR above 150. What hasn’t changed is the length of time RSA winners spend over hurdles. Only four winners this century had run in a hurdle race during more than one season. Winners of this race don’t see Chasing as something they do once they have reached their peak over hurdles but use their hurdling careers for experience before doing what they were bred for. Given that the typical winner has a short career over hurdles it follows that to get battle hardened, horses need to acquire plenty of experience over fences. The only Trainers to buck that trend have been Willie Mullins and Nicky Henderson. Only one horse (Don Poli two years ago) in more than 50 years has won this race without having a run in the calendar year. It used to be rare for RSA winners to have had previous Festival experience but six of the last eight winners had run over hurdles at a previous Festival. Stamina for the trip is important but it’s not uncommon for horses to come into the race having only raced over shorter. 3 of the last 13 winners hadn’t run beyond 21 furlongs prior to being successful in this race. Proven jumping ability is important and only two winners in the past thirteen years had previously fallen or unseated in a Chase. Five year olds are opposable now that they receive just two pounds but none from that age group line up this season. Graded form is important and seven of the last ten winners had run in a Grade One chase. Key trials include the Grade One Neville Hotels Novice Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas, the Grade One Flogas Novice Chase at the same track in February, the Reynoldstown Novices’ Chase at Ascot in February and the Grade Two Fuller’s London Pride Novices’ Chase at Newbury’s Hennessy meeting.

There is not much to separate most of these on Official Ratings but Delta Work heads the market after winning all three of his starts over fences, improving as he has done so. The last two were at Grade One level, beating the very useful Le Richbourg in the first of them. It’s difficult to gauge where the Irish Novice chase form stands this season but if it’s up to scratch Delta Work could be a difficult horse to beat. However he would be only the fifth horse since 1978 to win this before he was seven years old and, being by a German Sire, he would be the only the second horse in the past 15 seasons to prevail who wasn’t Irish or British bred. He has a solid profile otherwise and he has produced a level of performance better than almost all of his opposition have achieved so far. He was a progressive hurdler last season, winning the Pertemps here and narrowly missing out to Next Destination in a Grade One at Punchestown on his last two starts of the campaign. He is already a better Chaser but he has not been error free in his last two outings and those small errors could be exacerbated over these fences. This stiffer track could bring Topofthegame and Santini closer together than the two lengths there was between them at Newbury in December but Santini had his preparation interrupted by an infection in his hoof recently and that has to be a small concern. If Topofthegame was idling, as his Trainer believes he was, at Newbury he may confirm the form in which case being the bigger price of the two makes him more appealing. He spent two seasons over hurdles, which is a major negative considering 22 of the last 26 winners were Novice hurdling the season prior to going over fences, but if you want a man to defy a stat then you couldn’t ask for anyone better than Paul Nicholls. A bigger concern maybe Topofthegame’s habit of finding something to beat him. He doesn’t seem ungenuine and he may be capable of putting that right here. On The Blind Side improved massively for his debut over fences when winning readily enough in a Novice Chase at Kempton in January but that came getting six pounds of a 145 rated horse. That leaves him plenty to find if is to win this and his unbeaten hurdles record came to end when he took on Grade One company last season. The Worlds End has one piece of standout form over fences and it came when winning on the New Course over an extended 25 furlongs in December. He did it from the front in a four runner race and the other two to finish have done nothing for the form since. He was subsequently well behind Topofthegame and Santini at Kempton and he will need the first time cheekpieces to have a dramatic effect if he is even to get competitive. Mortal would’ve got closer to Delta Work at Leopardstown on his penultimate start but for making a horlicks of the last but that doesn’t look strong form for a Grade One race and it hasn’t been franked since.

This is likely to go to one of the top three in the market but they all have their negatives and you don’t want too many of them when you’re supporting a horse between 11/4 and 7/2 in a Championship race. There have been only three double figure priced winners of this race in the past 12 years but one of those was trained by Rebecca Curtis. She is represented this season by Drovers Lane who only has five pounds to find with the best of these on Official Ratings. He has won three of his four starts over fences and, although Graded form is not included, the horse he beat more comfortably than the margin suggests over an extended 20 furlongs on the New Course here in December won the Grade Two National Hunt Chase here yesterday. It’s surprising he didn’t go for the JLT over the shorter trip but he has won over 25 furlongs and connections must be confident of him staying to have nominated this option. Most of his form has been on faster ground than he encounters here but his Dam was a soft ground winner and he has a half brother who was successful in heavy conditions. He has had wind surgery since he was last seen and his absence since has been longer than ideal but his negatives lend to his big price.

Selection: (outlay – 1.5 pts)

Drovers Lane – 0.75 pts e/w. Available at 22/1. (BetVictor – 1/5 odds first 4)

2.50 – Cheltenham – Wednesday 13th March 2019:

Coral Cup (A Handicap Hurdle) Grade 3 (CLASS 1) (4yo+):

Distance: 2 miles 5 furlongs on the Old Course.

The Coral Cup is a grade three handicap run over 21 furlongs and is open to horses four years and upwards.This is fiendishly competitive and, with a field of 26, there are likely to be more than a few hard luck stories. This is becoming a classy limited handicap favouring the better horses toward the top of the handicap. Winners more often than not come here in good form. In common with many Festival handicaps the mark required to get into the race is stiff nowadays, being mid to late 130’s in recent seasons.

Positive Trends to consider:

The last 15 winners had no more than two Handicap Hurdle wins
The last 15 winners had their last win come in a hurdle race worth between 4k – 35k.
The last 15 winners had no more than 5 career victories (more than five are 0 from 91)
The last 15 winners were Irish, British or French bred
9 of the last 17 winners were French bred
The last 15 winners were at least 2 pounds higher than for their last win but no higher than 15 pounds (<2 and >15 are 0 from 159)
The last 15 winners ran over hurdles last time out (those that didn’t are 0 from 51))
The last 15 winners previously won at least at Class 3 level but not above Grade 2 level
14 of the last 15 winners ran over 16 – 21 furlongs last time out. (those that didn’t are 1 from 91)
14 of the last 15 winners ran at Class 3 level or above last time out
14 of the last 15 winners were aged between 5 and 8 years old.
14 of the last 15 winners had no more than 29 career starts
14 of the last 15 winners had 2-4 hurdle victories
13 of the last 15 winners had a break of at least 31 days before taking in this race (absence of 30 days or less are 2 from 146)
13 of the last 15 winners won 1 of their last 3 starts (those that didn’t are 2 from 184)
The last ten winners had raced 4 or less times that season
11 of the last 14 winners were 2nd season hurdlers
8 of the last 10 winners hailed from the top 8 horses in the weights
11 of the last 13 winners hailed form the top 7 in the betting
18 of the last 24 winners won earlier that season
Respect JP McManus-owned runners
Respect trainers Nicky Henderson & Gordon Elliott (2 wins each in last 9 years)
Respect Irish-trained runners (5 of the last 10)
Trainer Gordon Elliott is 2 from 9

Negative Trends to note:

There has been no winning favourite in the last 15 years
Horses aged 10+ are just 2 from 301 to even place since 1999
Only 4 of the last 18 winners had raced at the Festival previously
The last 74 horses wearing headgear have been beaten
Only 3 winners since 2000 had run more than 9 times over hurdles
Willie Mullins won the race last year, but overall has a bad record – 29 runners – just one placed inside the top 2

Analysis:

This handicap is very competitive and contains too many potential winners to list in detail so analysis will be confined to those horses selected for backing purposes.

Cracking Smart comes here on the back of a shorter break than idea so he will have to achieve something only 2 from 146 have, win this race with less than 31 day break. He had some very smart Novice form to his name last season and he returned to something like that level on his last start in a Grade Two at Navan last time out. He may have still needed that second start in a year and connections toyed with the idea of having a crack at the Stayers race at this Festival. A mark of 150 for this handicap debut is hardly lenient but he is obviously held in high regard. He ran Next Destination to within a length in a Grade One Novice Hurdle at Naas last season and had yesterday’s easy Arkle winner three lengths behind in third giving him three pounds. If he can run to that level here then he is capable of getting very competitive even from this lofty perch. His powerful yard have struck five times with their hurdlers in handicaps at this Festival, three of them last season at prices of 6/1, 11/1 and 33/1.

Knight In Dubai went close on his handicap debut at Newbury last time out and runs from just four pounds higher this afternoon. The way he finished suggests he will relish this longer trip on a stiffer track and he has been trained with this race specifically in mind, something his Trainer did with Superb Story when he ran out the winner of the County Hurdle here back in 2016. He has a liking for soft ground so conditions here will up his street and he appeals as a likely type for a race of this nature.

Selections: (outlay – 3 pts)

Cracking Smart – 1 pt e/w. Available at 12/1. (Paddy Power – 1/5 odds first 7)

Knight Dubai – 0.5 pts e/w. Available at 25/1. (Betway – 1/5 odds first 6)

3.30 – Cheltenham – Wednesday 13th March 2019:

Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase Grade 1 (CLASS 1) (5yo+):

Distance: Two miles on the Old Course.

The highlight of day two, The Queen Mother Champion Chase is a Grade One Chase run over two miles and is open to horses five years and upwards.who have been allocated a mark of 130 or above by the BHA Handicapper. It is the ultimate test of jumping at top speed. Having the speed to go the gallop and the ability to quicken off that gallop in the latter stages are just two of the important assets required to win this race. Bold jumping at speed with very little or no error is just as important. It’s a myth that this race is won by 20 furlong horses, true 20 furlong horses are unlikely to be able to lay up with the pace of genuine two milers.

Positive Trends to consider:

35 of the last 37 winners returned 10/1 or shorter
14 of the last 19 winners returned 5/1 or shorter
22 of the last 34 had won at the Festival before
16 of the last 20 winners came from the top 3 in the betting
14 of the last 19 winners ran in the previous season’s Arkle or Champion Chase
11 of the last 16 winners were second season chasers
The last 15 winners ran in a Non-Handicap Graded Chase last time out.
The last 15 winners last win came in a Non-Handicap Chase at Graded level
The last 15 winners wore no headgear
The last 15 winners had no more than 22 Chase starts
The last 15 winners were ridden by today’s jockey at least twice previously
15 of the last 16 winners had run that calendar year
14 of the last 15 winners were Officially Rated 159+
14 of the last 15 winners previously won at Grade One level
14 of the last 15 winners had no more than 27 career starts
14 of the last 15 winners had a break of 31-60 days prior to the race
14 of the last 15 winners won 1 of last 2 starts
14 of the last 15 winners had 1 or 2 starts in the last 90 days
14 of the last 15 winners started at 5-1 or less in their last race (those who started at greater than 5/1 are 1 from 51)
11 of the last 18 winners ran in the Tingle Creek Chase that season
3 of the last 6 winners also won the Clarence House Chase (Ascot) that season
Paul Nicholls & Nicky Henderson have won 7 of the last 11 between them
6 of the last 12 winners were French-bred

Negative trends to note:

Only two winners priced 11/1 or bigger in the last 36 years
Willie Mullins is yet to win this race
Just 1 of the last 17 winners hadn’t won a Grade 1 Chase before
12 of the last 13 winners had run in no more than 16 chases
Be wary of horses older than 10, they have won just twice since 1977.

Analysis:

The imperious, unbeaten Altior has seven pounds in hand of his nearest rival Min and he has beaten that horse seven lengths over hurdles and fences on the two occasions they have crossed swords in the past. Barring an accident or an ‘off day’ it’s hard to see how the rest can beat him. Min is the most likely to fill second spot so there is only one place up for grabs for e/w purposes if the front two perform to their best. That betting scenario doesn’t appeal and we will take a watching brief.

Selection: (outlay – 0 pts)

No bet.

4.10 – Cheltenham – Wednesday 13th March 2019:

Glenfarclas Handicap Chase (A Cross Country Chase) (CLASS 2) (5yo+):

Distance: 3 miles 7 furlongs on the Cross Country Course.

Positive Trends to consider:

The Irish have won 12 of the last 14 renewals
Respect Enda Bolger-trained runners (he has won the race 5 times)
17 of the last 21 winners came from the top three in the betting
8 of the last 14 ran in the December Cross Country race here
Respect Nina Carberry, Richard Johnson and Davy Russell-ridden horses (8 from 15 between them)
11 or the last 14 winners were aged 10 or younger
Trainer Philip Hobbs is 2 from 10 (5 placed in the top 5 too)

Negative Trends to note:

Debutants over these fences/course have a poor record
Avoid horses aged 7 or younger, they are only 2 from 97
Horses rated 126 or less have a very poor record
Trainer Willie Mullins is 0 from 12
Trainer Paul Nicholls is 0 from 16.

Analysis:

This has never been a race we have had a strong opinion on and we will do what we always do, sit it out and just enjoy the spectacle.

Selection: (outlay – 0 pts)

No bet.

4.50 – Cheltenham – Wednesday 13th March 2019.

Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle (registered as the Fred Winter) Grade 3 (CLASS 1) (4yo).

Distance: 2 miles half a furlong on the Old Course

The Fred Winter Handicap Hurdle is a Grade Three handicap open to four year olds only. Another big field affair which is no easier than the Coral Cup for punters. First run in 2005 a horse has to have a minimum of three runs before it can qualify for this race. This is a bit of a lottery with six of the last seven winners going off at 40/1, 25/1, 33/1, 25/1, 33/1 and 33/1. A field of 22 very lightly raced four year olds that have been campaigned with their handicap mark in mind means this is a very difficult race to assess. There is no rating ceiling for this race but the presence of the Triumph Hurdle means it is effectively a 0-145 handicap.

Positive Trends to consider:

The last 14 winners were rated OR 134 or less (>135 are 0 from 57)
The last 14 winners had no more than 16 career starts
The last 14 winners were yet to run at track (those that had previously run at track are 0 from 62)
The last 14 winners didn’t run in a maiden race last time out.
13 of the last 14 winners had a top 2 finish in 1 of their last 3 starts
13 of the last 14 winners ran in a Non-Handicap Hurdle last time out.
13 of the last 14 winners carried 11-05 or less (those that carried 11-06+ are 1 from 58)
10 of the last 14 winners had run just 3 times over hurdles before
12 of the last 14 winners had no more than 3 hurdle starts
French bred horses have a good record
Respect Fillies
7 of the last 8 winners all came from the bottom half of the weights/handicap
10 of the last 14 winners had run in the last 25 days
13 of the last 14 winners had run in the last 37 days (>38 days are 1 from 117)
David Pipe, Paul Nicholls, Gordon Elliot and Alan King-trained horses often do well
6 of the last 7 winners returned between 25/1 and 40/1
Respect horses wearing headgear
The last 13 winners were all rated between 124-134
8 of the last 11 winners were British-trained
13 of the last 14 winners were Irish or French bred
Trainer Paul Nicholls has won 3 of the last 9 renewals.

Negative trends to note:

Just 1 recent winner had last raced in January or further back
Trainers Willie Mullins, Philip Hobbs and Venetia Williams are 0 from 29 between them
Willie Mullins runners are 0 from 12 (and all not placed in the top 5 either)
Only 3 winners had run in a handicap hurdle before
No winner had raced at Cheltenham before.

Analysis:

As stated earlier, analysis will only be done for those selected for backing purposes in these large field competitive affairs.

Star Max is by a British sire and ran in a maiden last time out, both which are seen as negatives. However he is lightly raced and gets into this race at an area of the weights which typically supply the winner of the race. An ex flat horse in Germany he has improved with each of his three starts over hurdles and he wouldn’t need to improve much further to get competitive from an initial mark of 126. This stiffer track should suit and he is partnered by a jockey who will be on a high after her victory here yesterday. He handles soft ground and his trainer believes he will enjoy the demands that this race poses.

Praeceps is another ex flat performer who stayed two miles on the level. He has had three starts over hurdles and showed a jolt of improvement in the last of them, a Grade Two Novice race at Kempton. This stiffer track should see him progress again, especially if they go a good gallop, and his opening mark of 129 looks one he can cope with. He has to prove he can handle ground this soft but his Trainer believes he will and he fits the blinkers for the first time in this sphere. His best performances on the flat came in either blinkers or a visor so he could produce better than has so far done and that will put him in the picture.

Selections: (outlay – 3.5 pts)

Star Max – 1 pt e/w. Available at 12/1. (Generally available – 1/5 odds first 5)

Praeceps – 0.75 pts e/w. Available at 22/1. (BetVictor, Betfair, Paddy Power – 1/5 odds first 4)

5.30 – Cheltenham – Wednesday 13th March 2019:

Weatherbys Champion Bumper (A Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race) Grade 1 (CLASS 1) (4-6yo):

Distance: Two miles half a furlong on the Old Course.

This has never been a race in which we have dabbled in or studied. It’s almost impossible to tell which of these is likely to show the most improvement. Late market moves, especially in respect of the Irish challengers, are worth noting but it’s a race that’s best watched for future reference. It invariably produces top quality future hurdlers/chasers even among those to finish down the field so it’s an interesting watch for future reference.

Selection:

No bet.
