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.


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.


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.
