Cheltenham Festival Day 1: Selections and Naps

Cheltenham, Horse Racing

Best of Bets’ Oliver Holmes has his selections and naps ready for the Cheltenham Festival roar on Day One.

NAP: IL ETAIT TEMPS – Supreme Novices’ Hurdle – 9/2 William Hill

Il Etait Temps is improving all the time. His win in the Tattersalls Ireland Novice Hurdle was fantastic, even with Facile Vega’s blowout. Hurdles experience at Cheltenham helps him enormously and should kick-off the Festival in style for the Closutton brigade.

E/W BET:  SHEWEARSITWELL – Mares’ Hurdle – 25/1 Betfred, Boylessports

The rain is going to make a huge difference throughout the Cheltenham Festival, which will benefit Shewearsitwell massively. Her best win came last time out winning four-and-a-half lengths on deep ground at Leopardstown. The ground has come for her, and could make it a double for Danny Mullins.

Handicap Best: PERSEUS WAY – Juvenile Handicap Hurdle – 12/1 William Hill, BetUK

He’s never finished outside the top three on all of his career starts. Despite the ground is to be testing, he should be able to handle it. It’ll be his first time to run over that sort of ground, but the form he has behind him is excellent and looks overpriced.
