‘I’ll lump on wherever he goes’ – Templegate’s huge 629-1 Cheltenham Festival treble

TEMPLEGATE has been scouring the ante-post markets and found three cracking bets for Cheltenham Festival.

There has been a load of chopping and changing in the markets since Christmas, when some unfancied horses burst to the fore and others drifted away.

But with less than eight weeks to go until the biggest week of the year, it looks like a load of value can still be found.

Here, our man runs through three who have caught his eye.

You can back them as singles, some doubles or combine them all for a whopping 629-1 treble.

All odds are the best available at the time of writing. Good luck!

FAVORI DE CHAMPDOU — Albert Bartlett Hurdle (14-1)

Gordon Elliott’s eight-year-old missed last season so has just four hurdles runs on his CV.

He’s won all three of them since returning in November with the most impressive effort coming in a Limerick Grade 2 at Christmas.

He tanked along over a trip just short of three miles before powering away in the closing stages.

The Cheltenham hill and a breakneck pace look ideal to bring his staying power into play.

The 14-1 on offer is tempting ahead of his next assignment at the Dublin Racing Festival.

IMPAIRE ET PASSE — Ballymore (6-1)

It might be a little early in the year for a game of Willie Mullins’ Cheltenham bingo…

Every year it’s the same debate and it’s no different this season with Willie mob-handed in the Grade 1 novice contests at the Festival.

Impaire Et Passe easily delivers in the Grade 2 SkyBet Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle @punchestownrace @WillieMullinsNH‘s unbeaten Supreme hope follows in the hoofprints of former stable luminaries like Vautour, Douvan and Min with a clear-cut success under @PTownend pic.twitter.com/N7PiYNwB5i

It’s a dangerous game to play but logic would suggest stable No1 Paul Townend is unlikely to get off unbeaten Facile Vega in the Supreme, so in theory this lad is more than likely to run in the Ballymore.

Whatever race he runs in, he has created a striking impression on both starts to date.

He galloped his rivals into the ground on his debut at Naas and showed a different side to his game at Punchestown where he showed bags of pace to win over 2m on the inside track.

He seems to have everything you want in a Cheltenham horse and wherever he goes I will be lumping on!

BLOOD DESTINY — Triumph Hurdle (5-1)

It’s stating the obvious Willie Mullins is going to have a great Festival, but given his strength in depth there could be some value in his so-called second strings.

Hot favourite Lossiemouth has looked way above average winning Graded contests at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown, but I loved the way Blood Destiny won a competitive contest at Fairyhouse last week.

He dominated the race from flagfall and won in a hack canter — beating fair yardstick Nusret a similar distance to what Lossiemouth did at Leopardstown.

One is 6-4 and the other is 6-1 — I know which one I will be backing.
