Cheltenham Open meeting 2012 - Friday

Brief notes as I probably won't get involved tomorrow.

The two I'm looking forward to are Fingal Bay in the opener and Dodging Bullets in the novices' hurdle (2.25) -  it will be interesting to see how the 2011 Northumberland Plate winner Tominator fares in the latter race.

I'm not particularly keen on the Cross Country race but Balthazar King won over the course and distance at the Festival in March and acts well on good ground - in the past the going has tended to be quicker on the cross country track than on the racecourse proper. Of course, that's all obvious to the layers and they are likely to price up Philip Hobbs' charge accordingly...
