Cheltenham 2018: Fred Winter Ante-Post Preview

- 17:02, 16th February 2018
Nube Negra holds a Triumph entry but has plenty of eye-catching form to his name and he could be an interesting runner if he heads down the handicap route.

The Fred Winter Juvenile Novices’ Handicap Hurdle looks like a wide-open betting heat but there’s a couple of exploitable handicap marks that look worthy of closer inspection.

Nube Negra to Win and Each Way @ 8/1 - BET NOW

Nube Negra holds a Triumph entry but has plenty of eye-catching form to his name and he could be an interesting runner if he heads down the handicap route.

Dan Skelton’s charge made an impression on debut at Market Rasen and improved again when serving it up to Apple’s Shakira for a long way at Cheltenham on his next start. That rival is now ante-post favourite for that Grade 1 and he only finished three-and-a-half lengths off her that day.

That is top-class form that has been franked since by the full-sister of Apple’s Jade and Nube Negra has also won again, landing a Class 4 at Doncaster last month. If he decides to side step the aforementioned rival, he could well find himself in this race and he would be good value to finish in the money at around the 8/1 mark, bearing in mind he’s likely to improve for the return to quicker ground.
