Any day we have a Cheltenham meeting is a good one and Friday we have the first meeting at the track since Gold Cup day, much has changed since last March but the joy of seeing top-class hurdlers and chasers going around Prestbury Park remains one of the biggest thrills any racing fan can enjoy. Racing Friday also takes place at Newbury, Doncaster, Sligo, Newcastle, and Dundalk.
Ask For Glory
We have a cracking opener on the card at Cheltenham which is also live on ITV4, Paul Nicholls has been flying since the season started to gear up again, and Ask For Glory will get his Friday off to a flyer.
The six-year-old by the late Fame and Glory was last seen bolting up at Wincanton in the mud by a huge margin. The form from the race prior to that at Newbury where he came fourth also looks very fair, he has had a wind op ahead of this return and his yard are flying with a 38% strike rate in the last two week. Ask For Glory will add to that tally here today to enhance his reputation before he goes chasing.
