We have three runners over the two-day meeting at Cheltenham this week, starting with Tanit River and Le Fin Bois tomorrow.

Tanit River (pictured right) has a progressive profile, having won at Warwick and Chepstow last month, on both occasions over two miles and ridden by 7lbs claimer Alan Johns, who takes the ride again.

The step up to three miles is very much into unchartered territory with him, but he has shaped as if a step up in trip would suit and on pedigree he should improve for it.  It will be his last run of the season before going out to grass for the summer.

Le Fin Bois has needed time to find his feet since joining us from France last spring, but there were plenty of positives to take from his second at Wetherby last time, where he bumped into a very well-handicapped rival on handicap debut.   He has come out of that race very well and, though I think he will come into his own over fences and granted a longer trip next term, he has the speed to be very competitive over the 2m1f trip and we are looking forward to running him.



Hidden Identity (pictured left) is our only runner on Thursday on what will be the final start of her career.

Having finished in midfield in the Grade 1 Mares’ Hurdle at the Festival last time, she reverts back to handicap company and hopefully she can make a bold bid to go out on a winning note!
