Robbie Power’s Cheltenham 2020 Day 1 Tips – National Hunt Chase

Robbie Power joins us to give his best bets for the National Hunt Chase on Day 1 of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival.

5.30 National Hunt Chase

I think we could have another Irish winner of this race.

I think Carefully Selected will be hard to beat.

He was very impressive when he won a Grade 2 Chase at Punchestown.

Not so much over 3 miles in Naas but that race came quick enough on the back of the Punchestown race, I think he was maybe a little bit flat. He’s been freshened up since then.

Of the English horses I think Springfield Fox of Tom George’s has been very impressive in two chase wins. He’s a fantastic jumper, he’ll probably go from the front and he’s probably the biggest danger to Carefully Selected.

Best Bet: Carefully Selected (13/8)
