Cheltenham Festival Day 3 2008

A ten race card will be a marathon for everybody this afternoon. Channel 4 are covering six races so us armchair viewers are in for a feast of racing. The £250,000.00 World Hurdle for long distance hurdlers should be won by Inglis Drever if he can show the same form he produced on Cheltenham Trials day when he beat Blazing Bailey. Ruby Walsh rides Blazing Bailey this afternoon as Robert Thornton rides My Way De Solzen.
I hope the £200,000.00 Ryanair Chase is won by The Listener. He has been in great form this season. All his runs have been in Ireland where he has been finding the softer ground.
It will interesting to see if the ground has dried out at all after the strong winds of yesterday. I do not think there will be any falling asleep in the armchair this afternoon! Be Lucky and enjoy some fabulous racing.
