We've teamed up with Weatherbys to look at some of the stats that you'll need to know before parting with your cash ahead of the big handicap chase at Cheltenham on Saturday.
2.00 Cheltenham - 'Matchbook Betting Exchange' Handicap Chase
10/10 – Rated at 140 or lower
9/10 – Aged between 7-9
8/10 – Won a chase over 3 miles or further
8/10 – Won on seasonal reappearance
8/10 – Won at Cheltenham previously
Only 2lb higher than when successful 12 months ago, COGRY ticks all six boxes in relation to the highlighted trends and is likely to have been primed for this reappearance.
A first-fence faller in the race in 2016, he stayed on well to score last year and he has twice won first time out. He has plenty in his favour and, like many previous winners, boasts plenty of chase experience here at Cheltenham.
The only other horse to pass all six trends was Domesday Book, who has only been seen once since winning the Kim Muir at the 2017 Festival. The lack of a recent run is a slight concern, although Stuart Edmunds seems to have his horses in good form at present.
Others for the shortlist, include the high-class Minella Rocco, who needs to defy the 'over 140' stat, Paul Nicholls' Braquer d'Or, who lacks any Cheltenham experience, and Doing Fine, who is slightly older than the average winner.
