    Fabulous Fact To File. Supreme or Baring Bingham for Ballyburn? - DRF Reviews & Cheltenham Clues

    Fabulous Fact To File. Supreme or Baring Bingham for Ballyburn? - DRF Reviews & Cheltenham Clues

    Presented by the 2024 Weatherbys Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide, Emmet Kennedy, Katie Young, and George Gorman react to our biggest ante-post bet for Cheltenham, Fact To File, who we tipped at 14/1 and 10/1, becoming the 6/4 favourite for the Turners Novice Chase after toppling Gaelic Warrior in the Grade 1 match at Leopardstown. But what did he actually achieve in victory, and is he really the one to beat? What now for Gaelic Warrior? The Arkle betting looks as volatile as a cryptocurrency market after the odds-on favorite, Marine Nationale, flopped behind Il Etait Temps. Can Barry Connell's horse bounce back at Cheltenham? Plus we review the novice hurdlers at the DRF where Ballyburn emerged as the outright favourite for the Supreme and Baring Bingham Novice Hurdles at Cheltenham, but the question is, which race will he run in? The team has strong but differing opinions. Dancing City will head for the Albert Bartlett after strengthening Willie Mullins' hand with a Grade 1 victory at the Dublin Racing Festival. We discuss his chances at the Festival and those of stablemate Predators Gold and Jessica Harrington's Jetara. Plus, Kargese is now the second favourite for the Triumph Hurdle, but can she challenge Nicky Henderson's Sir Gino, and is it possible that one of her stablemates could reverse the form with her at Cheltenham?
