  • Cheltenham Festival ante-post analysis and fancies. Part 2. February 12th

    By on 15th February 2020

    The Dublin Racing Festival, along with recent racing at Newbury, offered us punters plenty to think about when it comes to which horses we will all back at the Cheltenham Festival.

    Opinions are divided in some quarters when it comes to certain races. Are the Irish horses better than the English, or the other way around?

    It is possible to over analyse recent racing form. Some horses that did not deliver what was expected earlier this month will surely come on for that and improve at Cheltenham. Others may have won well but what did they beat? They'll face . . .

    I would firstly like to welcome Peter and John back to VG Tips. Lapsed members are just as welcome as new ones. They have returned for the feast of racing on offer during the next four weeks.

    This weekend the racing looks good but the weather is forecast to be atrocious.

    From March 10th we have the Cheltenham Festival and then on April 2, 3 and 4 we have the Aintree Festival that culminates in the Grand National. Top quality National Hunt racing and a time of year when I am very busy studying form night and day but which . . .

    It's been a while since racing beat the weather in the UK. It's inevitable. It happens every year and usually at this time of the year.

    Sandown Park has a good looking card on offer on Saturday, but nothing much that I fancy at a price for Friday.

    Heavy rain is forecast for Friday evening and torrential rain forecast for Sandown on Saturday. Time will tell if the Saturday meeting goes ahead. I hope it does as I have some horses I am keen on. Should the meeting on Saturday get the green light, it looks like being . . .

    Thursday went well for those who are content with shorter price winners.

    My NAP called Buzz actually improved in price between the 6/5 on offer when it was my confident selection the day before racing, and the 13/8 SP price available when Buzz won a Class 4 Novices' Hurdle by a neck. That Nicky Henderson trained winner will go on to better things. At the moment at least, the grey gelding still has an entry for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle on day one of the Cheltenham Festival.

    11/8 tip Zoffee had already won for us on the . . .

    Last weekend went rather well, don't you think?

    I loved the Dublin Racing Festival. I had long intended to go but didn't get my act together soon enough and missed out. I envy those who were in attendance for the high quality two day meeting and who were there to see Faugheen turn back the years and win at the age of twelve.

    Someone responded to me on Twitter by saying Faugheen didn't beat much. It didn't matter! Sometimes racing isn't simply about what beat what. It is about special moments that excite a crowd . . .

    What a fantastic day of racing at Leopardstown! The Dublin Racing Festival has become an annual treat for those who love the sport.

    At the time of my writing the Sunday preview, Notebook and Chacun Pour Soi were winning NAPS for me and subscribers to VG Tips. Selected for them when available at 15/8 and 7/4 respectively, each were well backed on the racecourse on the day.

    Rachael Blackmore just gets better and better in the saddle. She is one excellent jockey. She drove out Notebook to win quite comfortably in the end from second placed Melon. But . . .

    EDEN DU HOUX just won for members at Chepstow! The first of three on Friday goes in. Tipped when priced 13/8, the David Pipe trained winner came past the post at odds of 6/5.

    I'm writing this before the other two races as I want existing members of VG Tips to have as much time as possible to read what I have to say about the feast of racing that is the Dublin Racing Festival staged at Leopardstown this weekend.

    It all begins on Saturday with some top quality horses taking each other on. You can be . . .

    The winning tips of last weekend were Allaho, Harry Senior, Paisley Park, Stormy Ireland and Carefully Selected. All good performers in their own right and all destined to turn up at the Cheltenham Festival in March.

    Nothing to get excited about from a betting perspective tomorrow, Friday. We have to remember that this is the time of year when UK trainers have their best horses in their stables, wrapped in cotton wool, prior to the Cheltenham Festival. While Irish trainers are sending out their best horses at Leopardstown on Saturday and Sunday for the high class Dublin Racing Festival.

    Racing . . .

    Last year at the Cheltenham Festival went well for myself and existing subscribers to my selection service at VG Tips.
    Read all about it via this link.
    Indeed the last few years have gone well. A greater number of winners, albeit no 40/1 winner since Une Artiste in 2012. But then we have since enjoyed 40/1 and 50/1 winners of the Grand National.

    Not long now until a roar signifies the beginning of the 2020 . . .

    Third Time Lucki was the only NAP on Friday and the only winner from four races selected. There was one non runner. I did say I thought the racing was poor on Friday and I sided with Third Time Lucki (despite the stupid spelling) because I had heard Dan Skelton speak highly of his horse only a week or so ago. 11/4 was a good price about the winner who came home just under four lengths in front of a newcomer from Nicky Henderson.

    Some days are like that. There is only one you really fancy and I have . . .
