Newsboy’s best bets for Cheltenham and UK cards on Saturday

CHATHAM STREET LAD is fancied to catapult trainer Mick Winters into the Cheltenham limelight with a victory in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup (1.50).

Cork-based Winters is something of a cult figure in his homeland – but confesses: “I don’t think I’ve had a winner in Britain.”

That can change – and in style – with Chatham Street Lad, the novice who has put more experienced rivals to the sword in handicap chases at Ballinrobe and Cork this winter.

Both those successes came over two miles, but the son of Beneficial scored over an additional four furlongs over hurdles.

“I think two and a half is is trip,” said Winters. “He’s a big, strong horse and he was bought to be a three-mile chaser.

“I’d say he’s in the form of his life – he has travelled over well – and there will be no excuses for him.”

With just six starts over the larger obstacles on his CV, Darragh O’Keeffe’s mount has plenty of scope for further progress and a British Horseracing Authority handicap mark of 137 is there to be shot at.
