Cheltenham November meeting: ITV Racing tips
Racing Post expert Stuart Redding picks his best bets for Saturday's racing at Cheltenham in a bid to help you find more winners.
1.40– From The Horse's Mouth Podcast Novices' Chase
Nicky Henderson's charge ended his hurdles career with a couple of lacklustre displays but he has enjoyed the switched to fences, winning small-field novices at Uttoxeter and then here. He easily left behind his rivals when asked for an effort over course and distance last time out and that form sets a clear standard.
2.15– Paddy Power Gold Cup Handicap Chase
Simply The Betts made steady progress last season and he can take another step forward in Cheltenham's first big handicap of the winter. Harry Whittington’'s charge proved unbeatable going this way round and showed a willing attitude to win at the festival, getting the better of Happy Diva despite looking in trouble when briefly headed on the run-in.

Race 1– 2.15 Cheltenham
Rock-solid contender Simply The Betts (nap) is taken to continue his excellent progress.
Race 2– 2.30 Lingfield
While several should improve and there are some good pedigrees on show, the racecourse evidence suggests that this is between Folk Magic and Parachute, with the former narrowly preferred following his good finish on the AW at Wolverhampton.
Race 3– 2.35 Punchestown
Takarengo ran a huge race in the Cesarewitch last month and showed enough in some of his hurdles starts last year to be of interest now.
Race 4– 2.50 Cheltenham
The one strikingly progressive runner is Tea Clipper, who has not been tried under rules beyond an extended 2m3f but will probably stay.
Race 5– 3.25 Cheltenham
Winning a 19-runner race here in clearcut style last month on his handicap debut was no mean feat for Captain Tom Cat. It was only his fourth start overall under rules and there must be further improvement in him, so he looks the one to beat.
Race 6– 3.40 Lingfield
The highly progressive Good Effort keeps finding more and is taken to maintain his unbeaten record on this track.
Race 7– 3.55 Cheltenham
In a good-quality renewal, preference is for Ucanaver, whose blistering display of front-running at Fontwell made a deep impression.
