Cheltenham Festival 2019

Blimey, we have March already and you know, what that means - four days of
exciting jumps racing. Usually we encounter good ground at this time of the year
, though not this term after plenty of recent rainfall turned the turf softish and we
can throw the formbook out of the window.

Highlight will be the Gold Cup, where PRESENTING PERCY (foto) and CLAN DES
OBEAUX (FR) are going head to head. With the reigning champ Native River also
in the mix we are in for a thriller. Percy stems from a rather small and unfashioned
stable and does not accept defeat as an option, while Clan is a rising star trained
by Ditcheat handler Paul Nicholls. I can't split these two and back them both at 4.50.
*** Both unplaced

Furthermore I bet an double with BUVEUR D'AIR (FR) in the Champions Hurdle and
TIGER ROLL (IRE) in the Cross Country Chase @ 6 *** Lost

And finally I rate TOPOFTHEGAME (IRE) with a decent chance to win the RSA Chase
@ 4.50 ***WON
