Grand Annual Chase (4.15pm, Wednesday)
Ed has one of his strongest fancies of the week in Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase on Day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival.
His money will be on the Phillip Hobbs trained Zanza each way at 7/1 with Betfair* who are offering 6 paying places in this race. Richard Johnson takes the ride.
Ed said “This horse runs off a mark of 145 and I think that could really underestimate him here. He’s got his ground conditions today and comes here as a fresh horse which might be a good thing.”
He concluded “Clearly, coming to Cheltenham off the back of a fall isn’t ideal preparation but what it has done is protected his handicap mark.”
