(1) (5:35pm Cheltenham) CALIDAD was 18/1, now 4/1
Bought for €45,000 as a 3-yo and is a half brother to chase / hurdle winner, Drop Out Joe and point race winner, Racey Lacey, out of a 2m 2f, French chase winner. Harry Whittington is 1-5 in bumpers this season and has a solid opportunity here, with the market backing him right in, overnight.
(2) (3:50pm Cheltenham) COBRA DE MAI was 13/1, now 9/2
Backed into favourite for the race and ran well over C&D , when sixth on soft conditions, which didn’t suit, finishing just 8 lengths adrift of The Conditional. Made seasonal debut at Fontwell (2m 5f, soft), finishing a modest seventh, with conditions underfoot, far from ideal. Good ground is liable to suit here and plenty of punters feel the same, having backed him in to lead the markets. Every chance of bagging the spoils here.
(3) (2:33pm Kelso) ROCKYS TREASURE was 16/1, now 5/1
Won four from five starts at the end of 2018, but has not been able to replicate that since, with best run since, being a second over C&D in April of 2019, when 13 lengths behind Cobra De Mai. Was pulled up twice in final runs of last season and returns after a lengthy break, having had wind surgery ad wears cheek-pieces for the first time. Has dropped severely in mark, which does offer some chance, but each-way backing looks the safer option.
(4) (6:15pm Chelmsford) STORM OVER was 22/1, now 7/1
A C&D winner back in January, but has dropped off badly since, with the latest runs, bringing a twelfth at Thirsk (5f, good to soft) and a tenth at here at Chelmsford (5f, a/w), three weeks ago. Needs to show plenty of improvement, despite the market attention, with a place beckoning at best.
(5) (5:00pm Cheltenham) OSCA LOCA was 22/1, now 15/2
Winner of a couple of point races and then a Hunter Chase at Cork in April of last year. Switched to Tim Vaughan’s yard but was not raced for 18 months, until finishing sixth at Chepstow (2m 3f, good) in a novice hurdle, when looking to get some fitness. Fences and the extended trip look more suitable but a fair bit to prove, after such a long lay-off. Every chance, if his jumping is up to scratch
