No tips today, well OK just a few. Just a reminder to myself about the horses to watch out for.

Cheltenham

12:05 Thyme Hill (very good value at 6/4)

12:40 Mick Pastor (big recruit from France for Nicholls/Geraghty/JP)

13:15 Aye Aye Charlie (one of my horses to follow – e/w)

13:50 Ramses de Taillee (perfect going)

14:25 Siruh du Lac should win this. Can’t understand why Slate House is being supported. Splash Of Ginge for a place at 28/1.

15:00 Tobefair is excellent value at 7/2.

15:30 Avoid this race. Lots are double declared.

16:00 Looking forward to watching Cill Anna in this (11/1) but not betting.

Uttoxeter

13:20 Petite Power looks exceptional value at 9/4

14:30 Looking forward to seeing Midnight Tune (3/10) before she moves on to a higher order. Just a watching brief.

15:35 Take (possibly) a first look at Grandads Cottage (5/6). This one could well turn up in the spring festivals.

Punchestown

12:50 What the hell is hurdler Faugheen doing in this?! This smacks to me of running out of ideas and what, ultimately, is the point of putting an 11-y-o, rising 12 into a beginners’ chase? As you will have gathered I am really unhappy about this. He might well win but my selection is Dommage Pour Tou who could turn out to be quite interesting.

13:25 I really like Moon Over Germany at a remarkable 5/2.

14:00 I think that Klassical Dream is the real deal. 8/15 could be very generous.

14:35 Blue Sari (3/10) is one to watch and should win. However, I’ll also be watching Fakir (9/1).

15:40 The Big Getaway could be a big player later in the season. Not for me at 4/9, albeit that he doesn’t have much to beat.
