SUN RACING is back to give you some insight on big horses at even bigger prices at Cheltenham Festival – after landing an 11-winner.

BOTOX HAS (2.30)
Gary Moore’s hurdler has a cracking record at Cheltenham with a second in a Grade 2 before following up with two smooth wins. He enjoyed stepping up to 2m3f when a solid sixth at Ascot last time and this longer distance again should bring more improvement. This is wide open but he has a solid each-way chance.
HOGAN’S HEIGHT (3.40)
He’s been preparing for this challenge with a couple of quiet hurdles runs but his last chase effort was a superb win in the Grand Sefton Chase at Aintree. He jumped the National fences brilliantly and should take well to this cross-country course. He’s a massive price to run into the frame.
This consistent seven-year-old ran another big race when fourth in the prestigious Matheson Chase at Leopardstown last time. He’s been raised a fair 5lb for that and has plenty of pace for this trip along with the staying power you need for the Cheltenham hill.
THREE STRIPE LIFE (4.50)
He comes into the Champion Bumper with a strong chance after an impressive debut win at Navan in January. He travelled like a classy horse there and pulled right away from his rivals. There should be plenty more to come.
