Daryl Carter (@darylcarter7) has fired in winners this week at 7/2, 10/3, 9/1, 4/1 and 5/1 so far and he’s back with his Cheltenham Festival Day 3 tips
MISTER FISHER (1.30 Cheltenham) 1pt win 5/1
Mister Fisher arrives here on a hat-trick and he has plenty of scope for improvement over this trip (1-1). Connections made the right choice coming here and his December victory over course and distance is a big positive. He looks a strong stayer and the strong pace will certainly suit.
SIRE DU BERLAIS (2.10 Cheltenham) 1pt win 17/2
Won this race last year despite meeting a mountain of trouble so the 7lb higher mark should not be off-putting. Connections opted for first-time cheekpieces in this race last year and it’s a positive he gets first-time blinkers today. The form of last year’s race has worked out incredibly well and he looks to have been plotted for this all season.
MIN (2.50 Cheltenham) 2pts win 5/2
Min has an excellent record over 2m4f and the soft ground will play to his strengths. He has been unfortunate to bump into Altior throughout his career but gets the ideal opportunity to gain that illusive Cheltenham Festival success now.
TOBEFAIR (3.30 Cheltenham) 0.5pt e/w 80/1
It’s difficult to take on the favourite Paisley Park but last season’s Pertemps Final second Tobefair is a wild price here. He stayed on nicely into fourth in the Cleeve Hurdle behind Paisley Park last time and he is a gutsy sort who relishes the Cheltenham hill and will give you everything.
DEYRANN DE CARJAC (4.10 Cheltenham) 1pt win 10/1
There is certainly a handicap in Deyrann De Carjac on the evidence he has shown this season in strong novice company and this may be the time to catch him on his handicap debut. Many of these runners look handicapped to their best and there is every chance this seven-year-old could have more to offer.
FLORESSA (4.50 Cheltenham) 1pt win 15/2
Floressa was better than the bare result behind the smart Lady Buttons at her beloved Doncaster last time when the race wasn’t run to suit. She will get the strong pace she likes in this field and with her early-season Newbury form looking strong, she is taken to land this wide-open event.
DEISE ABA (5.30 Cheltenham) 2pts win 8/1
Deise Aba is finally starting to come good for Philip Hobbs and the manner of his successes the last twice suggest he is much better than a mark of 142 and could prove well ahead of the handicapper still. He finished behind Plan Of Attack last October at Aintree when pulling up after a race ending error in the home straight but looked to be travelling all over his rivals that day and a repeat would prove good enough.
