Towards the end of the last week, we shared a couple of horse racing naps ahead of the Cheltenham Festival on Tuesday. The naps were provided by Simon Panting of CheltenhamZone, by way of the Huffington Post. Today, we share Simon’s three final Cheltenham naps.
Bouveril is a horse that is fancied for the Fred Winter Handicap because of his intelligence, a mark of horses trained by Paul Nicholls. Weighing in as one of the lighter horses, Bouveril is in prime racing condition.
For the Ryanair Chase, Panting fancies Don Cossack to win. And so do many others, with Don Cossack considered by many to be the favourite. Don Cossack has won four straight races leading into Cheltenham.
The Nicky Henderson-ridden Peace and Co is the favourite for the Triumph Hurdle. Bred in France, this horse is expected to adapt well to the quick pace of Cheltenham.
