MF big fan of bunk off early asked DC who he’d ride he says Bunk off early neon wolf would win this if he runs in it and stats are against melon

Champion Hurdle
HDB – Petit Mouchoir good form schooled well today only one in the field that has won 2 Grade 1s this season like sizing Europe
JF – Yanworth best attitude in the race and if he’s right he will win
JK – Petit Mouchoir unlucky in the fighting fifth and tombstone not good enough
OS – Yanworth if Wayne Hutchinson rides
JMG – Yanworth has the best form but he’d take him on with brain power in an open looking race
NOB – PM + Yworth top rated but thinks Buveur Dair wins
MF – Brain Power e/w
DC – Limini goes for this race but when asked says yanworth probably win
KW – Petit Muchoir and Yanworth might do it but thinks in a hard run race that footpad EW could catch them

JMG – defi du seuil but megafortune if its soft Soldier in action e/w
All agree merry de vie is a lively outsider

Albert Bartlett

DC Augusta Kate would have beaten Death Duty last time out despite the fall and @7/1 look no further, Penhill not out of it on nice ground
HDB – Monalee here guaranteed he will stay at 10/1
JF – Monalee
MF – Monalee is one of the best bets of the whole meeting

DC – Un De Sceaux has a hell of a chance
MF – Empire of Dirt is the NAP of the whole meeting really found his feet in the last 12 months and is the stand out horse of the card
JK – Empire of dirt he’s never had a ride like him, should have been sent to the gold cup and will be very hard to beat
DR – agrees with JK and MF but thinks the trip might be a bit sharp for him he’s a 3miler
HDB – sub lieutenant has a good chance e/w but thinks that Empire of dirt is the biggest danger
JMG – Un de sceaux will take a lot of beating
JF – Un De Sceaux should have won last year and will win here
KW – cant see Un De Sceaux beaten
OS – put blinkers or a visor on Uxizandre and he’ll have a great chance

Round up of Day 3
DR – Presenting percy too heavily handicapped in the pertemps English horse will win this no chance
DC – lets dance in the mares but airlie beach is very very good
KW – Kim Muir too open back Davys Ride
DR – Mall Dini disappointing but then got questioned and kept cards close to his chest (back it)
NOB – step up in trip will suit mall dini and feels he’s been campaigned for the kim muir

Champion Bumper
DR – some day best in the country

DC – Yorkhill wgatever finishes in front of this will be the winner

Cheltenham Gold Cup
HDB – Champagne west is definitely in this just keeps going. Sizing john classy
JF – Bristol de Mai e/w
DR – Champagne west form very solid but thinks its between djakadam and native river but questions native rivers form
KW – Native river not as classy as djakadam, djakadam has Cheltenham and gold cup form says champagne wests jumping is better but you cant miss a beat in the gold cup
DC – Cue card no chance been below for since before the king George not good enough, djakadam the best form it’s his year this year. More of that e/w says sizing john wont stay
