2.05pm Cheltenham – Allmankind (NAP) at 5/2 with Betway
The 4-y-o’s get proceedings underway on Saturday afternoon and many fans will be excited to see the return of the Dan Skelton-trained Allmankind who we rate as the best of our four Cheltenham Showcase tips.
The front running gelding was a winner over the course and distance here at The November Meeting last season before going on to win the Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow in December. He then went on to finish third in the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
On a mark of 146, he is the top-rated performer in the field and understandably our NAP bet of the day.
Of the others, Gordon Elliott’s Grand Roi, successful in three of his four starts when with Nicky Henderson last season, and the unexposed performers Monte Cristo and Botox Has, add plenty of flavour to the opener.
2.40pm Cheltenham – Mossy Fen (Each way) at 5/1 with Skybet (3 places)
Mossy Fen, who was victorious in the Ballymore Leamington Novices’ Hurdle at Warwick in January before going on to finish fifth in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at The Festival, makes his chasing debut in this two and a half miles contest.
Trained by Nigel Twiston-Davies, the five-year-old should be a decent prospect over the regulation fences given that he is already a point-to-point winner in Ireland.
Nicky Henderson’s Fusil Raffles tops the ratings and was a Grade One winner at Punchestown in 2019. He started his chase career promisingly by taking a Novices’event 29 days ago at Uttoxeter.
Adding further spice to the contest are the recent Listed Chepstow winner Grand Sancy and Pileon, the runner-up in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle at last year’s Cheltenham Festival.
3.15pm Cheltenham – I Better Go Now (Each way) at 8/1 with Betfair (5 places)
This Pertemps qualifier is often a strangely run event as horses need only to finish in the first six places to be eligible for the Pertemps Final at The Festival.
Tobefair, runner-up in the 2019 contest at The Festival, won this contest 12 months ago and takes his chance once again.
Lightly-weighted I Better Go Now is a speculative each-way bet but he is certainly a horse on the up.
Dan Skelton’s seven-year-old scooted home on his seasonal reappearance at Perth and could well have plenty more to give. He won’t however want it too testing, so watch the local weather forecasts for Saturday.

3.50pm Cheltenham – Walk In The Mill (Each way) at 12/1 with BetVictor (3 places)
The Robert Walford-trained Walk In The Mill is probably the best horse to track and trace in the feature race of the day – the Matchbook Betting Exchange Handicap Chase, run over three miles and a furlong.
The 10-year-old finished fourth to Tiger Roll in the 2019 Grand National and is a two-time winner of the Becher Chase, having won it in 2018 and 2019.
Walford says that his participation all depends on the weather but if it is good to soft, he will take his chance.
Hard to ignore will be Frodon, who landed the 2019 Ryanair Chase at The Festival under Bryony Frost and is a five-time winner at Cheltenham. As will Cogry, winner of this race in 2017, second in 2018 and third in 2019.
