What was Keith’s Coral Cup Tip for 2019?

For the 2019 Cheltenham Festival, Free Racing Tips Tipster Keith advised: 

At this stage it is difficult to form an opinion as we are just guessing the line up, possible contender are MIDNIGHT SHADOW, BALLYMOY, EARLY DOORS, LOW SUN and WONDER LAISH.

My selection at this stage is the Nigel Twiston Davis trained BALLYMOY 14/1 each way who ticks a number of boxes let’s hope he turns up. 

Result: BALLYMOY was a non runner
