THE Voice Of Value (@TheVoiceOfValue) is our man for the penultimate race of the Festival, the Martin Pipe Conditionals Hurdle.
Cheltenham 16:50 | Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle | ITV4
Traditionally referred to as ‘the boys race' this race is for young trainee jockeys only so a good song jockey can be very helpful. The one I am very strong on is EARLY DOORS for Joseph O'Brien and ridden by JJ Slevin who is a very capable conditional. Indeed, Slevin won this very race last year on Champagne Classic and I think he can repeat the trick here. I had heard whispers from Ireland about the horse a few weeks ago and true enough he has shortened a bit in the betting. This is his handicap debut and I think he may well have been underestimated.
