2.05 Cheltenham Festival: Rule The World ready to dominate

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Rule The World is improving with every race and looks solid each-way value at 15/2 to land the spoils.

Mouse Morris’ charge has won three of his four starts over hurdles and was ultra impressive when slamming Mink by 16 lengths in a Grade 2 at Naas last time out.

The six-year-old travelled ominously well throughout that day and and taking up the running on the bridle two from home stretched clear without Davy Russell having to more a muscle.

He was virtually eased down to a walk at the line and won with tons in hand.

I really like the way he jumped and travelled in that contest and he looks the type who has bags more to offer.

His handler also knows what it takes to win this race having saddled First Lieutenant to victory in in 2011, and Rule The World has a similar profile.

The favourite Pont Alexandre is clearly the one he has to beat, but that one is plenty short enough in the betting and I am more than happy to take him on with Rule The World at the odds on offer.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts each-wat Rule The World (15/2 bet365 – BOG)
