Paul Kealy excludes fancied handicap contender in his Cheltenham Placepot perm
I'm very tempted to bank on Induno in leg one (1.15) of the Placepot at Cheltenham because I think he could be ridiculously well handicapped, but it's probably not the wisest move given there are 18 runners.
Castle Robin shaped like he was improving when a well-backed winner at Carlisle last month and he looked to score with a bit in hand, so a rise of just 2lb could prove lenient.
Given Magic Saint's previous efforts at Cheltenham, there's a fair chance this is one favourite we can kick out of the frame in leg two (1.50).
I'd prefer On The Slopes from the front of the market as he simply shaped as though his first run of the season was needed here last month and we can expect better from him now.
Eamon An Cnoic, who has plenty of good form at Cheltenham and won the last time he returned from a wind operation, is the other selection.
I tend not to leave anything out when there's a four-runner chase (2.25), especially a novice, as anything can happen.
The front two of Protektorat and Southfield Stone are obviously the main contenders, but Mossy Fen was around their equal over hurdles and gets weight, while a case can be made for Paint The Dream on his best form, a close second to Midnight Shadow in the Dipper on New Year's Day.
It's case of taking your pick of which banker to choose from in the Cross Country Chase (3.00), but we might as well go with Easysland, who beat Tiger Roll easily in March and now gets weight. They should finish first and second.
The two obvious ones in the final leg (4.05) are The Bees Knees and Panic Attack, but it's more competitive than that and the pair I like most are main selection Art Approval and Princess T, whose win last month was well franked by the runner-up.
