Cheltenham Day 2

Here we go for Day 2 - Didn't do too badly on Day 1 but just couldn't find that elusive winner.

1.30 : Red Sherlock
2.05 : Corrin Wood
3.20 : Hinterland
4.00 : Balthazar King 1st
5.15 : Killultagh Vic

Win Treble
Hinterland @ 11/1
Balthazar King @ 5/1
Killultagh Vic @ 9/1

I've also had an ew yankee that includes Corrin Wood, Hinterland, Rule The World and Seefood.

It was certainly a good day for the first time hood wearers on Day 1 with wins for Western Warhorse 33/1 and Jezki 9/1. Ifandbutwhynot has the first time hood treatment tomorrow in the Coral Cup and also the assistance of Bryan Cooper - 28/1 with Paddy Power.
Western Warhorse was the lowest rated horse in the field on 145 - in comparison the top rated was Rock on Ruby on 177 ie a 32lb difference.
I think McCoy sometimes hinders the horses he rides by trying too hard and mistakes for Gilgamboa and Pendra at vital moments almost certainly cost them better finishing positions.
Attaglance was unlucky in the last and on a different day he may have been awarded the race for the interference he suffered at the hands of the winner.
Quevega was a marvel today and on that showing you couldn't rule out a seventh win.

Good Luck !
