A Cheltenham NAP, Next Best and Each-Way from Timeform
Cheltenham NAP - 13:45 - Back Good Risk At All
Good Risk At All had some useful form over hurdles but, judged by his debut win over fences at Carlisle last month, he has the potential to reach even higher heights as a chaser.
Admittedly, his task was made easier by his main market rival departing three from home, but Good Risk At All had yet to be asked for his effort, and he stretched 16 lengths clear of the remainder in effortless fashion.
He is expected to take this step up in grade in his stride before having a tilt at top-level company and any rain will only enhance his chances further.
Cheltenham Next Best - 15:30 - Back Resplendent Grey
This may develop into a match between two handicap debutants in Resplendent Grey and Springwell Bay.
The former looked a good prospect in bumpers and he won his first two starts over hurdles in April. He lost his unbeaten record but emerged with plenty of credit when runner-up to a potentially smart one in the Persian War Novices' Hurdle at Chepstow on his return last month and he is potentially well treated from a mark of 127 now entering handicaps.
Resplendent Grey has a fitness edge over Springwell Bay and that may prove the difference.
Cheltenham Each Way - 13:10 - Back Strictlyadancer
Strictlyadancer was a two-time winner over this course and distance in 2021, including this race from a 7 lb lower mark, and he has shaped well in a couple of starts since returning from a lay-off so far this season.
He did easily the best of those who were ridden off the pace when fourth to Mole Court in another course and distance handicap last month and, now much better off at the weights, especially when taking the claim of his rider into account, he is fancied to overturn that form.
