Irish raider Road To Respect looks on a handy mark and makes plenty fo each-way appeal at 20/1 in the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase on day three of the Cheltenham Festival (4.10)
Noel Meade’s the six-year-old has some solid form to his name this season, finishing fourth to Coney Island (rated 152) in a Grade 1 at Fairyhouse and a 9 1/2 length third to the 160-rated Min in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown.
The form of the latter has worked out well with runner-up Ordinary World having gone on to finish a cracking third to Altior in the Arkle on the opening day of this meeting.
Tully East, who finished over 10 lengths behind Road To Respet in sixth, also landed a massive gamble in style in the Close Brothers’ Novices’ Handicap Chase on the first day off rating of 138.
That gives the form a solid look and suggest an opening handicap chase mark of 145 for Road To Respect is exploitable and he loosk to have been laid otu for this.
