Cheltenham Festival Bankers



So what are your bankers of the week at the Cheltenham Festival?

We take a look at the four horses which are taking all the money at the bookies. Backing them all pays out around 10/1.

Shishkin – 5/6 The Arkle

In the second race at the festival it sees one of the English bankers of the week trained by Nicky Henderson.

Shishkin has been impeccable in his three starts over fences and has continued his upward progression since getting up in the shadows of the post in the Supreme Novice hurdle last year.

The race looks to set up nicely for him with a strong gallop up front from Allmankind which looks to suit the seven-year-old with stamina in abundance over this distance.

Energumene is his closest challenger here but needs to prove himself on better ground and even then, I can pick holes in his jumping.

Shishkin is yet to even make an inclination of an error over a fence which makes him one of the bankers of the week for me.

Monkfish – 8/11 Brown Advisory

The Willie Mullins trained seven-year-old is a beautiful son of Stowaway who has relished fences this season with three wins in three over the larger obstacles.

His jumping for a novice is flawless, blitzing his rivals over multiple distances.

His best performance was last time out at the Dublin Racing Festival when beating Latest Exhibition by eleven lengths. If there was a chance to see him get beat it was probably last time and he smashed the critics away. He has gone from strength to strength since winning the Albert Bartlett at the Festival last year and would not look out of place in this year’s Gold Cup.

If he continues in the same vein here, he will be very hard to beat.

Chacun Pour Soi 5/6 – Champion Chase

Wednesday could be a very good day for owner Rich Ricci as an hour after Monkfish runs another one of his superstars appears in the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Chacun Pour Soi has yet to run at the festival with niggly injuries just 24 hours before the big day.

He has been mightily impressive in his three starts this year winning two Grade One’s and with the most recent being arguably the most impressive he’s been since his novice career. He stayed on strongly towards the finish which is something he has not really done in his career so far.

He demolished his rivals that day and what looks like another weak renewal of the race, he should take all of the beating if handling the course.

Envoi Allen – 5/6 Marsh Novice Chase

Thursday kicks off with the return of Envoi Allen who looks to continue his unbeaten run of twelve. With two Cheltenham festival victories to his name his class says it all and he will be very hard to beat here.

His three chase starts have shown a great ability to jump the bigger obstacles and albeit his rivals have not been as good as they were over hurdles, but he is a horse with supreme ability.

The change of stable to Henry De Bromhead is not ideal two weeks before the festival but his class will more than likely be able to pull him through the race especially with rivals running scared in behind.

Acca pays 10-1
