Cheltenham Festival: The Druids Nephew appeals in Ultima

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

The Druids Nephew loosk to have been laid out for the Ultima Handicap Chase on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival (2.50) and makes plenty of appeal at 10/1.

Neil Mulholland’s charge the 10-year-old ran out an impressive winner of the race in 2015 when beating Grand Jesture by 3 3/4 lengths off a mark of 146.

He has been lightly-raced since and ran very well at Doncaster 12 months ago when runner-up the The Last Samuri in the Grimthorpe Chase off a rating of 155.

Thr 10-year-old is now able to race off 146 again, the same as when last successful in this, and that makes him dangrously well-treated on the pick of his form.

Although only ninth on his sole start this season at Ascot back in December, The Druids Nephew has a good record fresh and appears to have been svaed and targetted at this contest.

Mulholland knows how to get one primed to land a punt and the bllooking of Noel Fehily to to the steering for the first time is a positive as he has a 23% strike rate whne teaming up with the yard in the past 12 months.

Daily Sport recommended bet – posted on twitter 12.45pm 13/01/17: 2pts each-way The Druids Nephew (10/1 generally available)
