Cheltenham Racing Tips: Inch House has more to offer

Adam Houghton outlines the Timeform view on the New Year's Day action at Cheltenham

"Inch House is open to more improvement as a chaser and likely to stay ahead of the handicapper for a while yet despite another 7 lb rise."

Timeform's Adam Houghton highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Cheltenham on New Year's Day...


Cheltenham NAP - 13:30 - Back Inch House

Inch House has made good progress to win his last two starts over fences, first getting off the mark at Newbury in November and then taking another step forward to defy a 10 lb hike in the weights at the same course last time.

He was well on top at the finish on the last occasion, hitting the front at the last and always doing enough from there to win by a length and a quarter.

Clearly in a rich vein of form, Inch House is open to more improvement as a chaser and likely to stay ahead of the handicapper for a while yet despite another 7 lb rise.

Cheltenham Next Best - 15:15 - Back Marie's Rock

Marie's Rock proved herself a very smart hurdler last season, easily winning this Grade 2 by six lengths and producing an even better effort when later chasing home Sire du Berlais in the Liverpool Hurdle at Aintree.

Though well below that form on her return to action in the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury last month, Marie's Rock is worth forgiving that run as she was simply too keen after eight months off and had nothing left to give at the finish.

That run should have taken the freshness out of the classy Marie's Rock and she's the one to beat on these terms if bouncing back to her best.
