Cheltenham 1:50 tip: Lalor back on song
Lalor was being heavily touted for the Racing Post Arkle at the Festival final spring following his impressive course win over Dynamite Dollars at the November Meeting of 2018.
Things have not precisely gone to play for Kayley Woollacott’s secure star since. He was pulled up in the aforementioned Arkle having never threatened to land a blow and suffered one other wide-margin defeat in Grade 1 novice company at Aintree.
He was once more beneath his very best on his comeback in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter in November, but his New Year’s Day exhibiting here could sign a nook being turned.
Aidan Coleman took over within the plate that afternoon and retains the seat now after a massively promising run.
That was Lalor’s first attempt on the 2m4½f trip and he made loads of the operating, showing actual tenacity in a three-way go up the Cheltenham hill. He looked like he would possibly even prevail before Oldgrangewood thrust his head down to get the verdict on the line.
The first-time cheekpieces are retained right here and Woollacott might be hoping there’s further progress to return from his low-mileage over this type of journey.
This Grade 3 handicap isn’t as sturdy on paper because the one he ran in on New Year’s Day and Lalor appears as a lot as getting firmly again on monitor.
Cheltenham three:00 tip: House Island underestimated again
The Paul Webber-trained House Island (Cheltenham 3:00) was a good winner at Ludlow on his second begin over timber in November, making all the working and staying on to good effect over the trip in extra of 2m5f.
Odds-on favourite that afternoon was the Paul Nicholls-trained Enrilo, who ran a poor race back in fifth (last of 5 finishers).
The pair clashed again on Tingle Creek day at Sandown within the Grade 2 Ballymore Winter Novices’ Hurdle, with Enrilo this time sent off at 10-1 and his previous conqueror House Island ignored in the betting at twice that price.
Gavin Sheehan’s charge once more made the operating and was worn down only late in the piece by Harry Cobden and Enrilo, the pair some seven-lengths away from the rest.
That’s fair kind and while the likes of King Roland for Harry Fry and the Colin Tizzard-trained Harry Senior command correct respect, it might be that House Island is once more missed at an each-way price. With the dead-eight because of line up, he makes attraction as a participant.
Cheltenham 3:35 tip: Park can proceed to dominate
Paisley Park (Cheltenham three:35) is Britain’s finest staying hurdler and Emma Lavelle’s cost can rubber stamp that status by defeating challenger If The Cap Fits to retain his Cleeve Hurdle crown.
The latter was a Grade 1 winner at Aintree in the spring on his only attempt at this three-mile journey but that was something of an unsatisfactory Liverpool Hurdle, as he joined the mares Roksana and Apple’s Jade in seemingly attempting to throw the race away after jumping the final.
Harry Fry’s charge has won the Coral Hurdle over a short journey since, however both Roksana and Apple’s Jade have, in their very own ways, left the Aintree type open to query.
The former was more than 16-lengths behind If The Cap Fits at Ascot in November while Gordon Elliott’s charge was pulled up behind Benie Des Dieux in Ireland on Thursday.
The Galmoy Hurdle winner, so spectacular in that race, could probably be an enormous threat to Paisley Park ought to Willie Mullins resolve to run her within the Stayers’ Hurdle again right here in March.
For now, the champion can present his tooth in opposition to inferior opponents, backing up November’s glorious Newbury success and booking his return ticket right here in March in doing so.
