What A Weekend!

What A Weekend!

First meetings of the new season from both Cheltenham and Aintree plus two good cards on the flat from Doncaster and Newbury.

Today at Cheltenham is a ‘look and learn’ day. Plenty of Irish challengers to add to the many unknown factors at this embryonic stage of the season.

I price up every race of interest to me. The many unknown factors make it a very difficult task.

One that I will be watching closely today is Qewy in the 2.40. The 5 y.o. makes his chasing debut having finished 5th in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at the festival and third in a Grade 2 hurdle at the Aintree National meeting.

With just the three to post, this is a tight betting event with the market just making Rock The World favourite over Qewy. Some go 6/4 the pair.

Qewy isn’t straightforward and there are too many intangibles to get seriously involved at short odds in a race likely to end up a tactical battle.

Qewy winning impressively at Newbury. Riddne by AP McCoy, one of the two winners on the day he announced his retirement.

Back tomorrow morning with the regular Saturday preview.
