Road To Cheltenham

Following a tremendous Trials Day at HQ and with the Dublin Racing Festival on the horizon, there was plenty for Matt Hulmes, Frankie Foster and Joel Ross to discuss on Episode 9 of The Road To Cheltenham.

Starting on an ominous note for the home team, Frankie reckons the English look "proper stuffed" ahead of the 2024 Cheltenham Festival, evidenced in part by Capodanno winning the Cotswold Chase with ease on Saturday.

The lads also reflect on Jonbon's defeat in the Clarence House, and consider whether he still has what it takes to put it up to last year's Arkle conqueror El Fabiolo come the Champion Chase in March.

Of course, star attraction Lossiemouth is discussed. A strong case is made for her having a pop at Constitution Hill in the Champion Hurdle, but she looks likely to go down the Mares' Hurdle route where she'll instead meet the likes of Love Envoi, Ashroe Diamond, Gala Marceau and Under Control - all of whom ran at the weekend and are assessed.

The claims of Grand National and now Cleeve Hurdle hero Noble Yeats in the Stayers' Hurdle are put under the microscope, as are Ginny's Destiny's for the Turners.

How about the novice hurdlers? Jeriko Du Reponet. Gidleigh Park. Sir Gino. Jade De Grugy. Dysart Enos. All discussed throughout the episode.

And for the bit you've all been waiting for - the antepost picks. 16/1, 20/1 and a whopping 33/1 are the prices, and the Champion Chase, Ryanair Chase and County Hurdle are the races.

Tune in to the full episode below to find out the 'who'.
