WATCHING BRIEF

Barry Geraghty is the value option at 10/3 to be the leading rider at the Cheltenham Festival.

He and Nicky Henderson have been in unstoppable form of late, combining for 36 winners for a strike rate of 39pc in January and February. While Geraghty won't ride Long Run or Binocular, he has three other favourites for Henderson at this stage, and their overall team looks potent.

Geraghty's hand is further strengthened by the likes of Big Zeb and Our Girl Salley.
