Greatwood Handicap Hurdle and Cheltenham Open Tips for Sunday, November 14

We've got another stellar card full of top-ranked jumps contenders at Cheltenham, with a number of graded contest set to unfold alongside some very enticing handicaps.

There are some smaller fields to work with so we might be a bit creative and include the odd forecast selection here.

In the 1:10 we've got a Grade 2 contest going 2m and five solid contenders are set to face off here. Loosen My Load strolled to a Grade 3 score at Punchestown a few weeks back and looks set to take a fair amount of money todat, but we'll be trying to beat the six year-old bay by siding with KILMURRAY who lined up a score over course and distance over fellow runner Ghizao.

It was a comfortable win that day and he seems to enjoy the Cheltenham surface. He's well-priced around 5.5 on the exchanges.

In the 1:45 Sinbad Testimonial we'll be jumping aboard fan-favourite FORPADYDEPLASTERER over this 2m chase. He looks head and shoulders above the competition here and this looks the time for the elusive score he's been looking for, considering how substantial the drop is.

He's a proven Grade 1-placed chaser and really only Tatiano is able to match him in this one. It's clear that this race is Forpady's to win, and we're confident he'll get the season off to a solid start.

The Greatwood Handicap Hurdle is more or less the feature and there's a few selections here who could reasonably take this one. It's a toss-up, but the prices are solid, so we'll be opting for MENORAH in this one despite being top-weighted.

There isn't a huge amount of form in the race but they have all scored decent victories at one point or another. If you fancy a spoiler, take a gander at Fiulin who may get the right type of trip to prove a point here.

The 2:55 at Cheltenham sees a field of 18 or so set to tackle 2m5f. RUSSIAN WAR looks the pick despite this being one of the more open races of the day and he's got a solid prep under his belt and plays similarly to the Kilmurray logic we used in the first race.

This isn't a significant step up for him as that was a higher-class novice hurdle last time out so he should carry that through towards this one where he looks well-weighted. He should deliver a nice price as well. If Kilmurray doesn't take the opener then you may want to hold off.

Grade 2 action set to unfold in a 2m5f handicap chase and you may want to take a gander at SUPERCEDE, who ran on Saturday but didn't really do much for himself.

If his connections think he can conquer a Grade 2 less than 24 hours after his last race then you may want to give them the benefit of the doubt here. Toss-up this one and that's a bit out of the ordinary so we might take it as a sign. He seems to be taking exchange money as well so it could be for real.

The final spin at Cheltenham is a National Hunt flat race going 2m110y. These are usually rolls of the dice, but if you insist then you'll do well to side with undefeated KARTINIAN who has won two on the bounce at the same class 5 level that everybody else seems to have scored at here. They were emphatic scores at Chepstow and Worcester and the PJ Hobbs-trained four year-old looks the play.
