Saturday 17th November 2018 – Lucky 15 Tips
The home of the jumping game is well and truly back this week as Cheltenham racecourse once again stages its excellent November meeting. It is the seven-race offering from Prestbury Park which undoubtedly provides the pick of this Saturday’s equine entertainment, and it is there to which we turn for this weeks each way Lucky 15.
Lucky 15 Tip 1: Looking Well in the 1:50 at Cheltenham
Stamina is the name of the game in this contest, bringing the likes of Scottish National winner, Vicente, and last years winner of this Perfect Candidate firmly into play. A little lower down the list though and receiving weight from that pair is the Nicky Richards runner, Looking Well.
Having unseated at the final fence, with the race at his mercy, in a soft ground, 4m1f, Edinburgh National last term, he certainly wont be found wanting due to his staying ability. His most recent win though actually came over 3m2f, when sluicing home at Kelso. Whilst he is up 13lbs here than compared to that run, he is 1lb lower than when a staying on third – beaten just 3¼l – over 3m when last sighted at Perth in June. He looks an appealing each way option here.
Lucky 15 Tip 2: Romain De Senam in the 2:25 at Cheltenham
Having landed the Badger Ales Trophy last weekend, we will be backing Paul Nicholls to pick up yet another big pot in the days feature contest of the BetVictor Gold Cup. The horse who can bring the prize home for the Ditcheat handler is the six year old, Romain De Senam.
Beaten 12½l into fifth in this race last year, he ran a cracker in the circumstances, with the ground being way softer than ideal that day. The better ground here seems likely to bring him closer, as does his handicap mark. Racing off 145 twelve months ago, he gets in off 138 this time around. A fast finishing second in the Fred Winter here in in 2016, he goes well at the track and a big run looks on the cards.
Lucky 15 Tip 3: The Eaglehaslanded in the 3:00 at Cheltenham
Hopefully this will be a decent day for Paul Nicholls, as it is another of his runners who will be carrying our cash here. The Eaglehaslanded is a horse who has undoubtedly had his issues having missed the majority of the past two seasons, but he is still only eight years old and has form in the book which would give him an excellent chance here.
A six-length winner over this course and distance off a mark of 125 back in 2016, he is only 4lbs higher here than when following up off 132 at Warwick. Things admittedly haven’t gone smoothly since, but we were most encouraged by his comeback run here in October. Bang in contention with two to jump, he predictably faded close home on what was his first run in 259 days and can be expected to strip fitter here.
Lucky 15 Tip 4: Christmas In April in the 3:35 at Cheltenham
Few trainers have started the season in such hot form as Colin Tizzard, and the Gold Cup wining handler is fancied to land another decent prize here. Operating at a 29% strike rate in the past 14 days, anything Tizzard sends to post is worth a second look and his runner, Christmas In April really catches eye.
Only 2lbs higher than when beaten just 2¼l over this course and distance last time out, he likely would have finished even closer that day but for being denied a run at a crucial stage. Additionally, that was his first run for Tizzard having only joined the operation on the 2nd October and it seems reasonable to expect a little improvement as he settles into his new surroundings.
