1.50 Cheltenham

Both Will Smith and Alan Kelly were keen on the chances of Golden Chieftain in last weekend's Badger Ales Trophy, but for the selection to fall at the first. Will is happy to give the course winner another chance here at enticing odds of 12/1 generally available among online bookmakers.

Alan Kelly identified Present View as a likely winner at 8/1 in his ante-post tip and punters may still be interested in the 7/1 currently being quoted by a number of firms about the market leader. His other selection Colour Squadron was unfortunately not among the final declerations, prompting Alan to tip Indian Castle who rates as a value each-way bet at 11/1 with the sponsor paying 1/4 odds for the first five horses home.

Buywise was tipped at 8/1 by Will Smith for the Paddy Power Gold Cup and is still available to back at best odds 15/2 with bet365. He also mentioned the prospect of Kapga De Cerisy going well at 25/1 if the ground went soft and conditions have resulted in that horse being snipped to 22/1, a price still worthy of each-way interest.

With Grand National Winner Pineau De Re likely needing a run, Will is keen on the chances of 4/1 market leader Katkeau here. He also fancies Ceasarewitch winner Big Easy to go well at 6/1 and is confident that pair will fill the first two places.
