Following 3/1 and 9/2 winners yesterday, Steve Ryder previews the Foxhunter Challenge Cup on the final day of the Cheltenham festival. P&L +12.43pts.

4:10 Cheltenham- Road To Rome 8/1 (0.5pt ew)

This race looks a stronger contest than in previous years but preference goes to Road To Rome who is unbeaten since joining Joe O’Shea. He was rated 109 when he left the Oliver Sherwood yard before winning three PTPs. He has since won Hunter Chases at Taunton, Ludlow twice and Haydock with his last victory coming by 34 lengths.

Connections were quick to book Sam Waley- Cohen to ride last time and have secured his services for this race which is a huge plus in these races. Road To Rome is a prominent racer which is a huge plus in these races to avoid any carnage in behind and with four places on offer, this 9 year old looks the most solid.
