Road To Cheltenham

Matt Hulmes, Frankie Foster and Joel Ross are back on The Road To Cheltenham after a busy festive period - and it's time for their first of nine antepost selections building-up to that week in March.

Find those - at 100/1, 50/1 and 14/1 - at the end of Episode 6, which looked back on the last week or so of top-class racing.

One of the Christmas highlights was of course Galopin Des Champs' emphatic success in the Savills Chase, which led to a discussion about the overall Gold Cup picture following that dramatic King George at Kempton on Boxing Day.

Would Shishkin have won but for unseating Nico De Boinville at the second last? The lads answer that - and discuss how he might fare in the Blue Riband at Prestbury Park.

Allaho's credentials for the Ryanair are also questioned, while the Stayers' Hurdle picture is looked at in-detail following Irish Point's impressive victory over the Christmas period.

Also in the spotlight are the novice hurdlers. Jeriko Du Reponet - how good is he? Jango Baie. It's For Me. Ballyburn. Captain Teague. Not to be missed.

Likewise, the novice chasers are discussed. Marine Nationale, Gaelic Warrior and Grangeclare West are all short in the betting for the Arkle, Turners and Brown Advisory respectively and the guys share their thoughts on their likelihood of victory in the spring.

Amongst much more, Joel also gives a nod to former Triumph Hurdle favourite Mighty Bandit who he's heard may be heading down the handicap route following a disappointing run on Boxing Day. Very interesting stuff indeed.

Watch the full episode below - and be sure to tune in next week for a new instalment of The Road To Cheltenham.
