I’m laying Boychuk in the 5.15 at Chelt. This is an awful race for the track and Boychuk is clearly the best horse. However, he’s in poor form. Since his short break, he’s been beaten at odds on (by one of today’s opponents), and has dropped away tamely (in the Mildmay Novice’s Chase at Aintree, five days ago). And he doesn’t look like the type who will appreciate two quick runs.
At odds of 5/4-6/4, I think its worth taking the risk that he wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t finish his race.<br>
3:30 Cheltenham – Silencio is the favorite and will like the ground and won last time but the form of the race is not good imo. French Saulaie may find the ground too lively and I prefer the chances of Earth Man who has returned this season after a long absence due to a breathing problem. Looked to be coming back to his best on his recent run at Ascot when finishing fourth. From the Nicholls/Walsh yard. Backed e/way at 5/1 on BF. Mith Hill could be the danger. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
Earth Man is now a non runner:(

I’m going for Chilling Place to place Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â (of course) in the Cheltenham 3.30 desribed by Swallow above. 7/2 currently available on the exchanges. He seems high class and he may be better in his second run back over hurdles. (Most of the favourites look vulnerable to me)
