The Cheltenham Tipster Leader Board!

***The leader board for The Green Oaks Challenge after day 2 of Cheltenham***


Congrats to travelling head lass Julie who is now the new leader!  The ‘horses left’ is how many picks we all have left for the next few days, with plenty of us having 4 or 5 still to run it could all change – Keep watching for updates!


Kilcullen Flem

Todays runners are Kilcullen Flem and Hangard at Hexham. Flem can put a line through his last race as he made a mistake 3 from home losing both hind shoes. He won a tough race on heavy ground here at Hexham the time before when 5 of the 8 runners pulled up, making it easy to expect he will stay the extra distance today in this 4m marathon trip. We wish him the best of luck today ridden by Adam Nicol for owners David O’Bree, Paul Betts & David McDermott. Hangard goes for his second maiden hurdle today with Tommy Dowson on board. He ran well at Southwell for 3rd last time out and hope he can improve again today back over hurdles. Good luck to him for owners Daniel & Sarah Blake.


Bumper winning Hangard

Hangard is by sire Black Sam Bellemy who also bred todays runner from the north in the Stayers Hurdle at Cheltenham – Sam Spinner trained by Jedd O’Keeffee. We will all be shouting him home, hoping for him to put the northern trainers on the map, and also jockey Joe Colliver – a great jockey from the north who deserves his chance to shine at the festival – GOOD LUCK TO THEM!
