    Outsider picks for Cheltenham

    I would like to see what people are going for at big prices at the festival.

    my big outsider is DEN OF INIQUITY 66/1 in places in the jlt specialty chase

    I have watched its last few races and they look like they were just lowering its handicap mark both times, it seems to be travelling ok but the jockey puts no effort in and just pulls it up.

    Its FERDY MURPHY,S and we know he likes a winner at cheltenham.

    I have backed Kauto Stone EW in the Champion Chase at 33/1.

    I might look to add Sivola De Sivola in the Albert Bartlett at 33/1 should he miss the cut in the Pertemps. Another is Hinterland if he is allowed to take his chance in either the Triumph (25/1) or the Supreme (40/1).

    nice prices I will keep them in mind, I have backed KAUTO STONE too, I think he can get a place and may be the most improving horse in the race.

    treble on them 3 would be nice good luck

    not a bad shout, he always has a couple that run stormers in the handicaps.

    not really looked at pipes string in great detai, but now you have mentioned it I might put a couple of his in.

    Lucky William in grand annual. Tom Cooper horses have a great record of making the frame at fancy prices. Rick in the pertemps. He has the same rating in GB as Ireland , has been running against Mourad and Michael D`Haguenet and such with distinction all season. Clonbannon Lad said to be amongst the best Irish bumper horses once ground soft.

    If Overturn runs in the Champion Hurdle I might have a daft bet on him ew. Because he's not really a danger they couldwill totally ignore him if he sets off in front and with an easy lead he might just steal a place.

    Walk On in his chosen race. He was awesome on his return and could win at big odds

    If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

    Is he a confirmed runner? Has only won on soft so far.

    Lambro in the Sunalliance. Decent form behind both Flemenstar and Last Instalment and completely unexposed over three miles over fences, which looks as if it should bring about further improvement.

    In all likelihood won't be good enough to win, but he certainly shouldn't be three times the price of Join Together.

    Like it - he's crying out for decent ground over a trip. Jumps impeccably too.

    I like Call The Police at 20-1 for the RSA (with a run obviously). Ran a cracker behind Last Installment at Leopardstown, should run well wherever he turns up at the Festival.

    Puts me off that he barely gets mentioned by Mullins. You get the feeling he's far keener on some of his other novices.

    Wasn't he the "best handicapped horse in Ireland" prior to last years festival disappointment?

    I have 95 about Carrickboy for the novice handicap chase on Tuesday. Hopefully Luke is thereabouts too.

    Call the police won his bumper for his previous trainer on heavy ground, and the thinking was he needed cut in the ground. I'm a fan of the horse too.
