Sky Sports activities tipster Jones Is aware of is off to the races on Gold Cup day and has three tricks to try to take down the bookmakers with.Respecting earlier Cheltenham Pageant kind often is the important thing to unlocking winners this week however generally that issue performs too closely on a market. That’s the case within the Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase (3.30) the place BRAVEMANSGAME (2pts WIN at 13/2 with Sky Guess – Guess Right here!) place available in the market is being too closely influenced by his sole run on the monitor the place he completed third within the 2021 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle.
Many have deemed that one run sufficient proof to declare Cheltenham unsuitable for the horse however I would be inclined to place that defeat all the way down to the type of the Paul Nicholls yard that week. Nicholls did not have a winner from his 20 runners on the Pageant in 2021 with solely three hitting the body.
Bravemansgame heads to the beginning within the King George
In the event you take away the ‘Cheltenham issue’, you’re looking at all the things you need from a Gold Cup winner in that Bravesmangame is a second season chaser that has received two of the main trials when working away with the Betfair Chase and King George VI Chase at Kempton. Galopin Des Champs rightly heads the betting for the Willie Mullins yard however to my eyes and evaluation Bravesmangame has put up comparable ranges of performances over fences this season and the discrepancy between the 2 available in the market is just too huge. Get on.I’m an absolute sucker for backing horses returning in the identical race they ran properly in on the earlier Cheltenham Pageant and that is my angle for the McCoy Contractors County Handicap Hurdle (2.10).
Previous outcomes recommend this often goes to an unexposed novice or second season hurdler from Eire however on the costs, and with Sky Guess paying eight locations, FIRST STREET (1pt EW at 18/1 with Sky Guess – Guess Right here!) and MILKWOOD (1pt EW at 25/1 with Sky Guess – Guess Right here!) are price an funding. First Avenue chased house the insanely well-handicapped winner State Man final season, discovering lots for strain off the bridle within the closing levels. That kind is sizzling with State Man going onto profitable Grade Ones and chasing house Structure Hill within the Champion Hurdle on Tuesday. Nicky Henderson’s cost is up 10lbs from final season however stays in nice kind. I am unsure the rise will cease him working properly at a monitor he loves.
Milkwood ran third within the 2021 County Hurdle and regarded the possible winner on the ultimate flight earlier than being collared by Belfast Banter, who was merely given the extra environment friendly experience. The choice returns two years later simply 1lb larger and on the again of a greater than it regarded run at Wetherby, the place he travelled together with his regular zest earlier than getting drained shut house. That can have put him spot on and the applying of a first-time hood solely additional will increase the possibilities of enchancment.
