Star Sports: Lay of the day

Star Sports owner Ben Keith picks out one horse he’s happy to lay each day

THE BANDWAGON rolls on and we’ll be looking to take on the short ones again today.

Our headline offer today is if you back Faugheen in the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle and he finishes out of the frame, you’ll get your money back. Willie Mullins has so many fancied horses this week – they can’t all win!

The big race today is the Queen Mother Champion Chase and it’s a real shame that Sprinter Sacre isn’t going to be here to defend his crown. However, as a bookmaker, at least the race is going to be much more competitive.

In truth it looks one of the weakest Champion Chases in years, but we’re still happy to take on the jolly SIRE DE GRUGY. He’s had a fantastic season, but has been beaten both times he’s come to Cheltenham and would ideally prefer a softer surface.

It’s difficult to rule out any of the field and I wouldn’t be surprised if there was an upset

If you’re at Cheltenham today, make sure you come and say hello to us. We’re on Pitch Three in Tattersalls and you will get service with a smile. Good luck!
