Crowds return to Cheltenham this weekend for the first time since the Festival and they’re all set to enjoy a cracking day of racing on Saturday, including the International Hurdle.
We’ve cast our expert eye over an ultra competitive card and you can check out our top Odds Picks for Saturday below including a tasty 7/1 selection.
Our Top Odds Pick – Song For Someone (15:00) – 11/2 at Betfred
All eyes will be on Goshen in the International Hurdle but it’s never easy for juvenile hurdlers to start mixing with the big boys.
Song For Someone couldn’t have been more impressive when winning at Ascot, having also won the Kingwell Hurdle back in February, and he looks set to keep on improving though the season.
Looking at the betting, we can’t understand why he’s over double the price of Goshen and he looks a strong bet to land Saturday’s feature race.
Our Extra Odds Pick – Ask A Honey Bee (14:25) – 11/2 at BoyleSports
Ask A Honey Bee was successful three times in bumpers, before winning on his hurdles debut at Wetherby, beating Ashton Lad who he’ll face again this weekend.
He then posted two runner-up efforts at Exeter and Newcastle, doing his best work at the end of both races.
Stepping up in trip here, he looks to have an excellent chance to be in the mix once more.
Our Long Shot – Cepage (13:50) – 7/1 at bet365
Cepage is a course and distance winner and was last seen running a cracker to finish 7th in the Ultima at the Festival back in March.
Previous to that, he won off a mark of 154 over this course and distance, putting in an excellent round of jumping.
He’s been competitive in this race the last twice and goes well fresh so he should be bang in there again on Saturday.
