11.40 Cheltenham – Comfort Zone – WON 2/1 (Adv 5/2)

The winning margin of a neck last time didn’t reflect his superiority over the field at Chepstow, where he travelled all over the field and having quickened a few lengths clear he was then almost reeled in by the runner up. Sure to be played a little later today, he’ll also appreciate the better ground as it was very testing that day, as it can be at Chepstow. His previous 3rd at Fairyhouse was very strong form and he’s probably better than that run as well, as he didn’t get the clearest passage having been ridden quietly. He looks likely to cement the Irish stranglehold on the Triumph Hurdle market.
