The Geek’s New Year GeeGees!
Happy New Year from The Geek – and can there be a better way of welcoming in the New Year than with 4 TV Tips at Cheltenham.
Willoughby Court was a decent winner at last season’s Cheltenham Festival and, as he had the potential to make up into a very decent hurdler after that performance, it seems significant that connections had no hesitation in turning his attentions to chasing this season. Ponderous over a couple of fences on his chasing debut, he showed the benefit of that experience when winning at Newbury next time, and he’s again fancied to gallop his rivals into the ground despite having to concede 5lb to the useful Yanworth.
Tip: Willoughby Court win @ 13/8 PaddyPower
Splash Of Ginge didn’t run anywhere near as well last-time as when winning the time before, but the form of his win would have been boosted massively if Starchitect hadn’t fatally broken down with one fence to jump. The ground last-time, though officially soft, didn’t look anywhere near as testing as it was when he won, and a return to that sort of testing ground could play right into his hands here.
Tip: Splash Of Ginge each-way @ 12/1 PaddyPower, Totesport
The last 5 winners have all carried less than 11-0 and, with only two horses carrying that sort of weight here, Buckle Street could win again under 7lb claimer Harry Stock after winning at Catterick last time. He really enjoyed stepping-up to 25-furlongs there, and 3miles at Cheltenham on testing ground should equally bring his stamina into play. Inform trainer Martin Keighley also sent out the winner of this race in 2010 with a horse that carried a light-weight.
Agrapart has 2lb more to carry than when successful in this race last year, when he gave 4lb and a beating to L’ami Serge. He’s not the most consistent horse but, conditions have come right for him again as he relishes heavy ground. His stable is also in excellent form.
Tip: Agrapart win @ 9/1 Betfair
