Coach Paul Nicholls has seven runners at Cheltenham on Sunday, together with ever-improving Afadil within the Unibet Greatwood Handicap Hurdle. Additionally working are Ginny’s Future, Trucker’s Lodge, Rickety Bridge, and First Flyer. Right here, Betfair ambassador Nicholls goes by means of all of his horses on Sunday’s racecard. Cheltenham 13:45 – Ginny’s Future He wanted the run on his debut for us at this monitor final month and located the bottom faster than best. However I used to be happy together with his leaping and he can be a lot happier with loads of give within the floor. Paul Nicholls goes by means of his seven runners at Cheltenham on Sunday afternoon together with Afadil and Rickety BridgeThe softer the going the higher for Ginny’s Future who ought to take a step ahead on this and has the scope to progress over fences. 14:20 – Truckers Lodge He’s a correct mudlark, effectively into the veteran stage now and was within the grip of the hamdicapper for ages after bolting up within the Midlands Grand Nationwide in 2020. He lastly started to slide down the scores final season and was on an extended dropping run earlier than his success within the West Wales Nationwide at Ffos Las in April with the assistance of Freddie Gingell’s 7lbs declare. The extra rain they’ve at Cheltenham the higher his probability.14:20 – Flash Collonges He has been largely constant over fences though it took him seven outings to get off the mark and it was irritating that he fell within the Scottish Nationwide in April once we felt he had an important probability. He gallops all day and continues to be unexposed as an extended distance chaser however he does want drier floor so I can be checking situations at Cheltenham earlier than letting him take his probability. 15:30 – Afadil He rapidly developed in a helpful hurdler final season, then had a win op in the summertime and was a bit behind most of ours, so badly wanted his first run of the brand new marketing campaign at Cheltenham a month in the past. He has come on a lot for the outing, will strip a lot fitter on Sunday and can hopefully be aggressive. 15:30 – Sonigino He travelled like the perfect horse within the Silver Trophy at Chepstow final month and appeared like profitable earlier than taking a blow leaping the ultimate flight and getting an enormous drained late on. I used to be then hopeful of an enormous run from him at Aintree till I withdrew him late on after he knocked a joint. He was high-quality inside a few days and this race appears to be like an appropriate goal for him with Freddie Gingell’s 5lbs declare a useful bonus. The stronger tempo they go from the beginning the higher he can be staying on stoutly on the finish as he actually wants two and a half miles. 16:00 – First Flyer He gained stylishly on his debut in a bumper at Ascot in October regardless of working inexperienced after which discovered the bottom too fast at Newbury in February. He was a bit sore afterwards so we gave him time to get better earlier than his summer season vacation. He has once more been catching the attention in his work from home and deserves this opportunity at this £25,000 bumper earlier than he switches to hurdles. The 15.30 might be an appropriate goal for Sonigino (pictured) with Freddie Gingell within the saddle16:00 – Rickety Bridge He made a tidy profitable debut in a Level-to-Level in Devon in March and got here inside a whisker of profitable once more on his first begin for us in a bumper at Worcester in October. Harry Cobden had a job to tug him up afterwards which is at all times a great signal. He’s solely 4 and this precious bumper provides him the prospect to realize extra expertise earlier than he goes hurdling. Greatest probability: Afadil EW. 15.30. He progressed swiftly final season and can be a lot sharper on his second run after a wind op.
