1.30 Cheltenham – Three Stripe Life (e/w) – 2nd 8/1 (Adv 20/1 Ante Post)

A notebook horse when runner up in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown over 2 miles, where he made a mistake when still cruising 2 out, before making up the ground easily but then having to switch around the field to make his challenge. He didn’t quite match the winners turn of foot, looking like he’d really appreciate stepping up in trip. He’d previously won his novice hurdle in good fashion and last season showed himself not far off the best bumper horses when 4th at The Cheltenham Festival. Runner up to Sir Gerhard last time, he does have a bit to find with todays Fav, but he’ll appreciate this longer trip and holds solid each way claims at around 6/1.
