Battle Group: Supported to strike on Town Moor

13:20 Cheltenham - Garynella - 3/1 from 4/1

Garynella catches the eye today on his debut for David Pipe. He appears to be quite well handicapped based on some of his runs across the channel. Some of those were in very testing conditions which means he should also have no problem coping with the heavy going today.

14:10 Doncaster - Battle Group - 9/2 from 9/1

This horse clearly has some quirks, but on his day Battle Group definitely has plenty of ability. It has been some time since he last got his head in front but he is now on a dangerously low handicap mark and the market support today suggests there is hope of him running a big race in what looks to be a tricky handicap chase.

14:30 Cheltenham - Walkon - 4/1 from 9/2

Walkon looks to be the worthy favourite in the feature handicap at Cheltenham today. He only found one better than him in the Paddy Power Gold Cup last time out and was 12 lengths clear of the third. The 5lb rise shouldn't be a problem and he will relish the testing conditions.
