CobdenFresh off an incredible win in the RSA Chase with Topofthegame, GG's Harry Cobden runs us through all his rides on Thursday at the Cheltenham Festival.

Capeland - JLT Novices' Chase

He has been really progressive this season and consequently raised 17lb in the handicap. Off a mark of a 144, I think he deserves to line-up in a race like the JLT. However, if the ground goes heavy, it won’t be in his favour.

Padleyourowncanoe - Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle

He took a step in the right direction at Wincanton on Boxing Day and has progressed really well this season. Though the heavy ground and a career high handicap mark, may not be in his favour.

Kilbricken Storm - Sun Racing Stayers' Hurdle

Won the Albert Bartlett at The Festival last year. Did not take to chasing so reversed back to hurdles. Will go in soft ground and it is a ride I am looking forward to.

Romain de Senam - Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase

Got his head in front at Taunton in January and ran a solid race at Kempton last time. With 10 stone 7 lbs on his back, he might be able to run a nice race.

Posh Trish - National Hunt Breeders Supported By Tattersalls Mares' Novices' Hurdle

Has really impressed me this season. She has been progressing all the time and winning a listed race at Taunton at the end of December, I think she has big chance.
