Nick Shiambouros is back with three selections from the Open meeting at Cheltenham...
"The Alan King yard has done very well with juveniles this term and this talented performer should prove difficult to beat."
12:40 Cheltenham - Oceane
Oceane is an interesting runner in this Juvenile Hurdle.
This gelding beat Big McIntosh at Kempton last month. He swept to the front two flights from home and pulled clear to win with any amount in hand.
The Alan King yard has done very well with juveniles this term and this talented performer should prove difficult to beat.
He is trading at a reasonable 2.942/1 on the exchange.
Romain De Senam is the main danger to the selection. This French import bolted up on his UK debut at Wincanton last month. He did not appear to beat much, but it would be foolish to dismiss him.
13:15 Cheltenham - Un Temps Pour Tout
Un Temps Per Tout is the horse to beat in this fascinating contest.
This smart performer won the French Champion Hurdle in great style at Auteuil in June. He made all the running, and pulled clear to win with complete authority.
If he can translate his smart hurdles form to the larger obstacles, he will surely take this on his way to better things.
He is currently trading at 2.245/4 on the exchange.
Blaklion is not without a chance. He was a little disappointing on his chasing debut a Chepstow last month, but should be kept on the right side.
14:25 Cheltenham - Sound Investment
I think Sound Investment could run well at a big price.
This gelding beat Wishfull Thinking in great style in the Old Roan Chase at Aintree last month. He took the lead at the last and held on bravely in the closing stages.
He has got up in the weights, but I think he has more to offer and is well worth an interest at his current price of 23.022/1 on the exchange.
Double Ross is worth a saver in this competitive event. He finished an excellent second to Pendra at Ascot last month and could be sitting on a big effort.
