Ed Quigley Antepost Armchair - Tuesday, February 27

With just two weeks to go until the Cheltenham Festival, Ed is back with two more antepost selections.


Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle - The Jukebox Man (Each-Way)

The Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle is often a real war of attrition, and there is no outstanding candidate at this stage.

Ben Pauling has a wonderful array of young talent in his Naunton stable, and his representative, THE JUKEBOX MAN can go well in a wide-open year. The six-year-old is a winner of two of his three Hurdle starts - winning the first two with the minimum of fuss, and then was thrown in the deep end on his third start when upped in class to Grade 1 level for the Challow Hurdle at Newbury in December.

That was over 2m4f, and he gave the succinct impression that he would be even more suited by a severe test of stamina, so naturally stepping up to 3m looks like it could unlock further improvement. 

The yard is having a terrific season, and with a bit of cut in the ground on the New Course, he could run a massive race coming here as a fresh horse.

Mares’ Chase - Brides Hill

Gavin Cromwell is having a stellar season with his raids to Prestbury Park, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he plundered another prize.

Things have clicked for BRIDES HILL over fences, and if we get spring ground for the Mares’ Chase, she is more than capable of running a big race here.

She is a slick jumper going from strength to strength, arriving here on a four-timer. She dismissed her rivals with the minimum of fuss in a Listed encounter at Huntingdon last time out, and I can see her gliding around Cheltenham and giving hot favourite Dinoblue something to think about.

The Willie Mullins-trained star is the one they all have to beat on ratings, but she has been beaten on both her previous visits to the Festival when sent off favourite and could be a little vulnerable here - more than the market suggests.
