Cheltenham Antepost wagers in tatters
My last couple of antepost wagers are on SPRINTER SACRE for the Champion Chase and CONEYGREE for the Gold Cup. I'm fairly confident about Sprinter Sacre mainly as I think the 2-mile chaser division is weak. I know that there are a lot of Sire De Grugy fans who think I will be eating my works come next Wednesday afternoon, and there are also more than a few supporters of Champagne Fever who are expecting that one to make-all under an enterprising ride. But I'm happy with 11/1 on Sprinter Sacre.
Coneygree is a tricky one, as it looks more likely that he will run in the RSA Novice Chase instead of the Gold Cup, but I think that will be a mistake. For one, he may not be fit next season, and I'm a "strike when the iron's hot" person. The ground will be in his favour, he's in tip-top form, and he has few miles on the clock.
No selections today. I'm concentrating on putting my draft blogs together for next week.
