Betting Tip: @ Al Boum Photo @ 4/1 with bet365

Monalee came off a clear second best behind Presenting Percy in the RSA Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, having been prominent throughout and perhaps too keen for his own good. He looked a better animal when winning the Flogas Chase over 2m5f previously and it could be he is better over that trip, so I’d be wary of taking a short price on him for the 3m Growise Champion Novice Chase (6:40), especially given the strength of the opposition.

The Flogas runner-up AL BOUM PHOTO was challenging for the places in the RSA when coming down heavily two out, ruling Ruby Walsh out of the rest of the Festival. But he showed no ill effects from that experience when bouncing back with a victory in the Ryanair Gold Cup Novice Chase at Fairyhouse and I fancy he can again take care of the second Shattered Love, who looked a little tired when slowing down into the last with the race seemingly at her mercy (traded at a low of 1.07 in running) and getting caught close home. The winner was finishing with a real purpose and could be seen to even better effect over this extra half mile, so he gets the vote.
