Fishable (1:10 Doncaster , 2pt win 9/2)

This race has been won by 3yo’s for the last seven years and they are granted a handy 6lb weight allowance which means FISHABLE gets 18lbs from today’s favourite Laafy. He is bred to relish this step up in distance to 1m4f and has shaped on a few occasions as though he needs a stiffer test and this trip should eek out further improvement. Soft ground should play to his strengths and hinder a few other rivals in here and it was an improved effort on racing post ratings in the first time tongue-tie at York last time so with that retained he looks a fair shout at the prices. Many come here after long campaigns but the selection was given a midseason break before rocking up at York so should be fresher than most and gets a confident vote.

Botox Has (2.05 Cheltenham, 1pt win 4/1)

BOTOX HAS doesn't have much to find with the short-price favourite on their meeting over course and distance last November and the time figure splits suggest that Allmankind used his position to slow the pace and get a breather in while the selection made up 12 lengths before the kick for home. Botox Has ran fractionally quicker from 3 out to the finish line to be beaten just 2 lengths. He looked a work in progress then and improved next time when winning over course and distance in the Triumph Trial. He ran a very fast final circuit time with a high of 2.62 seconds (8.5 lengths) ahead of the International Hurdle field won by Call Me Lord when at the third last and was only behind that race between the final flight and the finish line. He wondered around after the last flight and showed signs of inexperience but he picked up well to put the race to bed in comfortable fashion. He looked for all a horse that would improve with a summer on his back and he has proven to go well fresh previously when a winner by 18l at Fontwell on Hurdle debut. He receives 4lb from the favourite this time around and Jamie Moore would be foolish to give the favourite the same size rope again. The Irish filly is respected but I think the selection has the size and scope to be one of the few horses to improve from 3-4 this season.

Coole Cody (2.40 Cheltenham, 0.5pt win 10/1)

This race is asking for an upset and there’s not much between Not That Fuisse and COOLE CODY on the balance of their form and although the latter is a nine-year-old he has taken well to chasing for his new yard. He chased home yesterday’s runner-up Soldier Of Love when just outstayed over 3m2f to be beaten by two lengths but prior to that he was a very stylish winner over 2m5f and this trip of 2m4f should suit him well. He has a course win over hurdles here and has a fitness edge on his two market leaders so he is taken to make it 2 wins from 4 Chase starts at what looks an attractive price. Southfield Stone is interesting but connections have deliberately kept him to flat tracks and away from Cheltenham so this may be an experiment. Pileon has been well supported to suggest he is fit and ready to go but is making his debut at and as highlighted yesterday it is a tough place to make a wining one.

Goodbye Dancer (3.15 Cheltenham, 1pt e/w 25/1)

GOODBYE DANCER hasn’t shown much in two runs this term but they have both come in small fields with a lack of pace to suit his hold up style of racing and as a result he has been dropped 5lbs. Last season he won a stronger race than today’s competitive handicap at this venue off a mark of 124 in good style and then looked all over the winner in January at this venue off a mark of 134 (again in a stronger race) before coming down at the final flight when yet to be asked for his effort. He sits on a very appealing mark of 125 just four runs later and now returns to Cheltenham (on the old course) and is worth chancing at a big price.

Cobra De Mai (3.50 Cheltenham, 1pt win 13/2)

COBRA DE MAI yields from our list of handicappers to follow from the Cheltenham Festival and now looks a good time to strike. His return run at Fontwell was more than disappointing but I am happy to forgive him that effort on deteriorating soft ground and he looked in need of the run. He is now 2lb lower than his last winning mark which came here at Cheltenham on good ground and he gets conditions to replicate. His 8th in the Ultima Handicap Chase off a 2lb higher mark will be enough to land this race and now looks the time to have him on side.
