Cheltenham is back which means Jumps Racing is back so it’s fitting this week’s free tip goes to THE JUMPS PUNTER.
Here he takes on one of the big favourites of the day ADRIEN DU PONT. Good luck everyone!
3.00 Cheltenham Hurdle
Leoncavallo for me is to high a price. He is fit from a run on the flat recently and has only just changed yards so even though his current stable seem to be having a slow start to the season this horse has the benefit of a recent spin on the flat.
The reason I feel he is too high a price is that he unseated at the last run over course and distance, last December, when there was three in line. The other two being Adrien Du Pont and Sceau Royal.
He was just starting to be pushed along but given that he got headed by Sceau Royal at Wetherby and fought back to win close home and showed a really good attitude in doing so then it didn’t by any means mean he was going to be settling for third place that day.
He went on to run in the Triumph Hurdle at the Festival beating Sceau Royal and Gibralfaro that day. Given that Adrien Du Pont and Sceau Royal are having their first starts of the season the selection has a fitness advantage over them and based on the way he ran on the flat last time arrives here in good form. His owners won this race last year and I feel the past form he has makes him to high a price.
