Cheltenham Day Two- Bet of the Day for the Cheltenham novice
Are you a first-time punter? Here's some advice to get you through Day Two at the world's greatest racing festival.
Bet of the day
Red Sherlock, Neptune Investment Management Novice Hurdle (Martin Pipe).
A horse I've been following for a long time. He was very impressive when winning at Cheltenham last time out with one of his chief rivals Rathvinden well in arrears that day.
Lay of the day
Sire de Grugy, Queen Mother Champion Chase (Gary Moore).
Sire de Grugy just doesn't act around Cheltenham, he has won some very nice races this year in the absence of Sprinter Sacre and is a justifiable favourite but everyone is taking him on and he's drifting in the market and I would advise you to do likewise.
Each-way bet of the day
Orgilgo Bay, Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle (John McConnell).
Was a real eye catcher at Leopardstown just over a week ago when he worked alongside Willie Mullins horses after racing. This horse has got plenty of toe and looks thrown in at the weights on 10st12lb and his best form is on better ground. The ground is officially good this morning and I think that's what this horse's each way chances are.
