It goes without saying, this jumps season has been a stellar one for Colin Tizzard and it would be fitting if he were to round off the campaign in the best possible fashion by taking the last big race of the season with THEATRE GUIDE (best price 18/1)
. Having already captured a big pot at Kempton in February, the son of King’s Theatre was expected to go well in the Ultima Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival but unfortunately the nine-year-old fell when going well at the first going down the back straight. Hopefully that fall won’t affect his confidence as other than that slight blot on his copybook, he’s run to a very high standard all year. His runner-up slot in the Hennessy is arguably one of the best pieces of form on show out of the 20-strong field and even though he’s racing off a career-high mark of 150, he has run plenty of solid races off ratings close to that perch in the past.
