Datsalrightgino (12.05 Cheltenham)

Mister Fogpatches (14.25 Cheltenham)

Singing Banjo (15.00 Cheltenham)

Pete starts with the opener at Cheltenham and a Jamie Snowden runner looking to dominate this novice field. He's never afraid to take on the favourite.

12.05 Cheltenham - Datsalrightgino

Pete thinks that Datsalrightgino is a more than alright pick for the Snowden yard after winning last time out at Fontwell by a significant distance.

Gavin Sheehan gets the leg up and here are a couple of factors that Pete suggests signals Datsalrightgino will do the business.

"Did really well on his hurdle debut last time around, won at Fontwell by seven and a half lengths, ran very well, controlled that race and ultimately got a very impressive win.

So I think Datsalrightgino in this field of fairly inexperienced novices is the way to go. Will unlikely be a big price but at the same time I think is a very very good bet indeed.

14.25 Cheltenham - Mister Fogpatches

An Irish raider, Mister Fogpatches has solid form in the run-up with a last time out third in the Troytown Chase at Navan in November.

He also finished third in the three mile, four furlong Cork Grand National so the drop to three miles, two furlongs seems a happy medium.

Danny Mullins takes the ride for Pat Fahey and here is a snapshot of why Pete thinks that Mister Fogpatches has a clear route to glory.

"He's off the back of some really good performances at Cork and Naas. Now I do worry a little bit about the jumping here but ultimately I don't think that this one can be massively opposed.

Was placed in the Scottish National, last year as well, I was a little bit surprised at the price here, particularly because there are a few in this race I would oppose, the likes of Rocco, who a few people are looking towards.

Well I worry about Rocco's mark, going off a career high mark, there's a couple of others as well I just don't think I want to be with. Mister Fogpatches looks a good way in and is my favourite bet of a very good Friday."

15.00 Cheltenham - Singing Banjo

Pete's final Irish pick is Singing Banjo who was only beaten a neck by Back On The Lash in last month's Glenfarclas Cross Country at HQ.

The 20/1 shot will not go off at quite as generous odds on Saturday at Cheltenham but Pete is not perturbed.

Barry Walsh takes the reins and the following is why Pete sees Singing Banjos as the plucky choice.

"Was second course and distance last time around, only narrowly beaten as well, I thought was very impressive, having returned from five months away.

Also looked really good in cross-country action earlier in the year in April and in June, ran very very well then too. So this runner to me shouldn't perhaps be favourite but Singing Banjo should absolutely not be 8/1. Whatever price you get, I think Singing Banjo is well worth considering if you get over 5/1 like we are offering you at Planet Sport Bet at the moment.

It looks like an absolute corker."
