Any info, tips, general chit chat about the Festival stick in here guys.

 

I meant to stick this in yesterday but forgot. Both Faugheen & Min will now not appear at Cheltenham due to injury. Faugheen apparently has suffered a stress fracture & Min bruising.

1st big tip for the festival is in:

 

Head of Racing James Knight has picked Might Bite as his top tip for the Festival.

 

"He'll be going in the RSA Chase and was in the process of thrashing his rivals in the Kauto Star Novice's Chase at Kempton before falling at the last fence. If Might Bite can brush up on his jumping - and he has enjoyed a confidence boosting win at Doncaster since - then he will prove incredibly tough to beat at the Festival."

 

the RSA Chase is on the Wednesday!

 

Just checked and Might Bite is currently generally 3/1 (7/2 with some company called Black Type but never heard of them before)

A significant mover in the Coral Cup betting (14:50 on Wednesday 15 March)

 

Automated has been off the course since his Navan victory before Christmas, but having halved in price from 20-1 in the last few days, a big run for Gordon Elliott is clearly expected in the Coral Cup.”
