Arkle Chase betting tips and predictions for the second race of the Cheltenham Festival card on Tuesday 15th March 2016, the Arkle is due off at 2.10pm.
One of the bankers of the Festival lines up in just the second race of the meeting as Douvan looks set to win the race, so we’ve picked an each-way tip for the Arkle who we’re confident can run into at least a place at decent odds.
Arkle Chase Predictions – 2.10pm Cheltenham
With a horse that has the class of Douvan, this race has cut up quite a bit. It seems a foregone conclusion that Douvan will win the race, providing he jumps around and it’s hard to argue the case. At prices, Douvan can’t be backed, so each way, and betting without markets come into play. Vaniteux is clearly a class horse, and Nicky Henderson thinks highly of him, he will need to brush up his jumping though if he is to play a part here and at just 5/1 he’s not the best shout for an each-way bet in the Arkle. It may well be smart to side with a horse that may be ridden for a place, behind Douvan.
There are two Irish hopes including SIZING JOHN, who was behind Douvan in last year’s Supreme, and looks like he may well fill the runner up position once again here at decent odds of 9/1 with bet365. Henry De Bromhead is confident that the good ground will be a major help to the Midnight Legend gelding, and although he may not be good enough to beat Douvan, he looks the most likely to fill the second position. The stats tell us that nine of the last 12 winners of this race have been placed or won at Cheltenham before and that is in our favour given his second place finish at the 2015 Festival.
Gordon Elliott runs Game Changer at a bigger price, but he may lack the class of Sizing John and Vaniteux if he sharpens up his jumping.
Back to our selection in the race and Johnny Burke has spoken highly of Sizing John in the past weeks, and should Douvan not be at his best, the familiar colours of Alan and Ann Potts may well pick up the pieces. Even is Sizing John has to settle for a place we will still see a decent return on our each-way bet despite the race cutting up so much you’ll only get paid the first two places.
