Race Tip

Dropping back to this trip worked out for UNEXPECTED PARTY (3) in the Grand Annual Challenge Cup Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. Trained by Dan Skelton and might well come out on top. PATH D'OROUX (4) is a Gavin Cromwell runner yet to win in eight outings over fences. Holds some solid placed form and could be suited by the testing conditions. SAINT ROI (2) did well finishing sixth in the noted event and cannot be discounted though heavy ground might not prove ideal. Maintaining a progressive record of three from four with fences last-time-out Class 2 Doncaster winner HOMME PUBLIC (5) also needs to be included.
