Envoi Allen should win the Marsh Novices’ Chase to kick-off proceedings, and he is viewed by many punters as the banker bet of the week.
The third and fourth races provide a good opportunity for an each-way double, starting off with Allaho to win the Ryanair Chase.
Thyme Hill should also run a massive race in the Stayers’ Hurdle to deliver a tidy return ahead of the Gold Cup on Friday.
Tritonic fancied to triumph
With the Festival being held behind closed doors, there will be a limited attendance watching Al Boum Photo’s bid to win the Gold Cup for the third successive year.
The nine-year-old warmed up for the race with an easy victory at Tramore on New Years’ Day and is likely to be tough to beat.
The Triumph Hurdle gets the final day underway, and features a horse that can form a lucrative double with Al Boum Photo. Tritonic was Listed class on the flat and produced a dominant display to romp away with the Adonis Hurdle at Kempton on his recent debut over jumps.
