One of my favourite ante-post markets is William Hills' 'To win any race at the Cheltenham Festival'.

With 28 races in the modern-era extravaganza, there is scope for certain horses to run in a handful of different races, and it is frustrating getting on the right animal but in the wrong race.

As talked about elsewhere in this column, it is difficult to predict what race Yorkhill will run in at the Festival. After winning the JLT last season, it seemed logical that he might go for the Gold Cup, but thoughts turned to hurdling after his erratic performance at Punchestown.

It is glaringly apparent that the horse is far betting going left-handed, and other than that it does not seem to matter too much whether he is tackling fences or hurdles. However, he will fit into a jigsaw depending on the well-being of the other parts.

I suspect Yorkhill will end up running in the Champion Hurdle, as Melon does not look good enough to win it and there are too many question marks about Faugheen. The Ryanair is also an obvious possibility. The probability of him going off 6/1 to win whatever race he tackles seems remote, considering his ability. BET: Yorkhill to win any race at Cheltenham Festival, 1pt 6/1
