Arkle Challenge Trophy Trial Tips
A quick look down the early declarations and the two that stand out are Nicky Henderson's course and distance scorer FUSIL RIFLES and the Colin Tizzard trained ELDORADO ALLEN. QUEL DESTIN is interesting fresh from a win on the flat but this is tough company on chase debut. The Irish filly ZARKAREVA who won a Grade 3 Punchestown last month may find these boys a bit fast for her dropping back in trip.
How did we do?
All the above ran on the day.
Keith's Tip on the day:
FUSIL RAFFLES 13:40 Cheltenham 6/4 – Useful hurdler who has hit the ground running over fences. Should complete his chasing hat-trick today.
FUSIL RAFFLES jumped badly making a catalog of errors before pulling up two from home, ELDORADO ALLEN won, QUEL DESTIN was second and ZARKAREVA fourth.
