Birchdale at CheltenhamTop tipster Andrew Mount has two selections for Tuesday’s racing as well as two antepost picks for Saturday’s big races


SILVER STREAK – Fighting Fifth Hurdle – (Newcastle, Saturday, 1pt each-way -6/1)

This race usually cuts up and last year’s third SILVER STREAK makes plenty of each-way appeal, as we can get three places for out antepost bet but there could be seven or fewer runners on the day. Best fresh on good ground, he’s been rested for six weeks since his impressive comeback success at Kempton and he was beaten by less than four lengths in this race last year despite racing on heavy going.

SECRET INVESTOR – Ladbrokes Trophy Chase - (Newbury, Saturday, 1pt each-way - 16/1)

It’s forecast to be dry and windy at Newbury in the run up to the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase and ground-dependent SECRET INVESTOR could be the way to go. He impressed in winning on quick ground at Chepstow last month on his return from a wind operation, finishing seven lengths clear of Potterman who did the form no harm when just touched off in the Badger Beers at Wincanton next time. He found only Native River too good in The Grade 2 Denman Chase on his final start last term and his full record on ground described as good to soft or faster reads 12271112241121 (7-14).

DR T J ECKLEBURG – 2.55 Lingfield, 1pt win - 9/1)

DR T J ECKLEBURG showed promise on his debut when a 50-1 fifth at Newcastle and ran another eyecatcher when filling the same position at Wolverhampton last time, doing second best of those to come from the rear on a pace-favouring wet track at Wolverhampton. The step up to 1m2f could suit when he makes his nursery debut here.

SAY THE WORD – (3.07 Southwell, 1pt each-way -16/1)

SAY THE WORD raced on the deep ground towards the inside of the track when a modest seventh at Wetherby last time and we’ve already seen the likes of Shang Tang and The Black Squirrel, who also raced in the ‘swamp’ at the two-day Charlie Hall meeting, come out and win since. He remains a maiden after ten starts but the first-time cheekpieces could bring about improvement and he’s worth chancing at big odds.
