He ran a cracker when second in the red-hot Betfair Hurdle at Newbury last time. He handled the hustle and bustle of that big field and will have no problem getting up the Cheltenham hill.


He could be the pick of the British challenge and has done nothing wrong in winning all three of his hurdles starts so far. He stayed really well at Musselburgh last time and is open to further improvement.

He is a multiple point-to-point winner who won a 15-runner hunter chase here on his last visit and scored nicely at Warwick last time. This is a tough contest but he’s a big price to run into the places.

GABYNAKO (4.50 Cheltenham)

He has been placed in a couple of graded races and didn’t get much of a run when midfield at Leopardstown last time. Despite performing in good company he looks on a fair handicap mark and is a proven stayer.

Don't forget, SunSport tipster Templegate has given a verdict on every race at Cheltenham on Friday – and around the UK.
