Ray Flanagan with New Years Day selections
thought for the day: Wishing health and friendship to all readers in 2020.
Cheltenham 12.50- Anteros
Course specialist over hirdles and could yet make impact over fences. In process of running a big race before departing at Kelso last time and overpriced here.
Cheltenham 2.00- Kaleshnikov
Can put himself into Ryanair Chase frame by proving too classy and up to the task of conceding weight here.
Cheltenham 2.35- Constantine Bay: Telephone tipster horse to follow back at start of 2018/2019 season after a fine novice season over hurdles. Things on a downward spiral since but very well handicapped today and could improve back hurdling and up in trip.
Cheltenham 3.10- Roksana
Two fine performances at Cheltenham and Aintree in the spring of 2019 and repeat of those runs could suffice.
Tramore 2.20- Voix De Reve
Return of Gold Cup winner Al Boum Photo but stablemate Voix De Reve can spoil the party with this sharp circuit being right up his street.
