Team Twiston Cheltenham Festival Day Three
Day three of the Cheltenham Festival 2020 and Team Twiston have seven runners in all, spread across three meetings.
2.50 - The Ryanair Chase
Riders Onthe Storm joined us from Ireland on 4th November and won at Aintree just five days later. That was over 2m 4f on soft and he has gone on to win two races at Ascot over a furlong further on soft and heavy ground respectively, the latter a grade one event. Deserves his place in the line up and with more to come, will appreciate both trip and ground and has a very good each way chance. Sam Twiston-Davies in the saddle.
4.50 - Mares Novices Hurdle
Vienna Court has had six outings this season, starting with a debut mares hurdles win over 2m at Ffos Las. Has progressed nicely since, including a second at Newbury, another win at Taunton, then a third latest when stepped up in trip to 2m 3f. Maybe needs to find a little more, but more progress in the offing and she can go well here. Sam Twiston-Davies rides.
5.30 - Amateur Riders Chase
Flying Angel started the season on a mark of 149, but a drop to 140 saw him take advantage with a win at Ascot in November over 2m 5f. Back up 3lbs he then ran well over Aintree's national fences to take 4th place. A further rise saw him mid-division of 10 over 3m 1f in heavy ground at Haydock. He goes from 144 today over a furlong further, but with the ground much more to his liking, can put in a good display. Zac Baker rides in this amateur riders race and a good run expected.
