One of my Cheltenham Festival ante-post bets runs this afternoon.
Best bet for the horse racing at DoncasterI tipped up Paros at 20-1 for the Triumph Hurdle back in December before he made his debut for the yard of Nicky Henderson at the Tingle Creek meeting. It did not go to plan back in December as he failed to settle, hood goes on today, and I think he did not appreciate the heavy going. I am on today at 6-4 for the Virgin Bet Novices' Hurdle over two-mile at 1.45 in the hope he can show what I think I saw in France. He won his sole start at Dieppe before being purchased by the Bloodstock agents Peter and Toby Jones for Middleham Park Racing; take a look at the video if you can he is towards to front throughout, pinging the hurdles and oozing class. Hopefully he can show that sort of form here and a tilt at the Triumph Hurdle might be back on.
