Dodging Bullets in in very good form ahead of his Champion Chase defence says Paul

With less than a week before the start of the 2016 Cheltenham Festival, we took our cameras down to Ditcheat, home of Betfair Ambassador Paul Nicholls, to get the lowdown on some his leading contenders for the four day extravaganza...


Paul talks about Old Guard, who he says loves Cheltenham and goes in the Champion Hurdle, Southfield Theatre, Vicente, Bouvreuil, and Orbasa.


Current Champion Chaser Dodging Bullets has improved massively since Newbury says Paul and is all set to defend his crown in the day two feature. Paul also discusses the chances of Politologue, Sire Collonges, Diego Du Charmil, and Romain De Senan.


It's a big day for Paul with Vibrato Valtat expected to go well in the Ryanair Chase and both Saphir Du Rheu and Aux Ptits Soins going for the Betfair Ambassador in the World Hurdle.


Paul hopes to get day four off to the best possible start with Zubayr in the Triumph Hurdle, where he also runs Clad Des Obeaux and Connetable, while All Yours is well fancied for the County Hurdle and Qualando is expected to go will in the Martin Pipe.


Paul will be here with his exclusive thoughts on all of his runners, every day throughout the Festival, live at 17:00 the evening before racing.
