Cheltenham Festival: Professional punter

YOU COULD take pounds 1 million to Cheltenham today and still come home with nothing - that's how hard this afternoon's card looks.

However, there is one horse I fancy today to win and that's LINDEN'S LOTTO in the Kim Muir.

He is a winner around the course and will stay every yard of the distance up the hill. There are a lot of horses in the race which can't possibly win and my horse has a competent rider booked.

Istabraq is impossible to get beat in the Champion Hurdle. I've been through the race and I just can't find one to beat him. However, at the odds, I'm not telling you anything worth knowing.

The rest of the card is very difficult. The races are extremely open and the favourites should start at fair prices as the on-course layers will be keen to get them all in the book.
