Unibet International Hurdle (Class 1) (Grade 2) (2m 179y)
The International Meeting at Cheltenham is upon this weekend and ive decided to have a look at the International Hurdle as its thrown up an intriguing renewal to say the least.
The New One finds himself at the top of the market in a bid to win this race for a staggering fourth time. He beat his old rival and the ever reliable My Tent Or Yours in this last year who he’ll reoppose in this again this time around. The two old boys will likely be a warm order again and popular with punters as there’s always a chance of a big run from either.
I’m however going to take the pair of them on though with a younger rival in the Irish raider MELON for Willie Mullins. He was second here in the Supreme Novices at The Festival in March and I think he’s got a lot of progressing in him yet. He’s been well backed this week and even finds himself as joint favourite with some firms.
MELON – 15/8
