2020 JLT Novice's Chase Best Bet - Lostintranslation @ 4.00

We know what Bill Murray and Scar Jo were whispering about at the end of the Sophia Coppolo classic, there were discussing where to put their money on in the 2019 JLT Novice's Chase at Cheltenham of course.

The omen bet, in this case, is the seven-year-old gelding which comes into this race having won the Dipper Novice's Hurdle at Cheltenham and winning form on this track is good form to have.

Colin Tizzard lines up the son of Flemensfirth and with some close-up form behind the likes of La Bague Au Roi, that's going to bode well for an upcoming Cheltenham Festival races.

7.00 is worth the risk with this runner.

2020 JLT Novice's Chase Best Each Way - Defi Du Seuil @ 3.60

On the second line of betting is Defi Du Seuil, which won at Sandown last time out and that's good preparation for this. The Philip Hobbs-trained six-year-old has made it two wins from his last four starts and given that J P McManus is the owner, we're expecting a solid race-day move at the odds.

He has finished out of the money only once from four chase starts and he could be the one to run down Lostintranslation.

2020 JLT Novice's Chase Best Roughie - Pravalaguna @ 11.00

It's tough to overlook a Willie Mullins-trained runner at Cheltenham and Pravalaguna has the ability to cause an upset. The well-backed runner - 15.00 into 11.00 has been in solid form and could spring the surprise on punters.

Best Bet: Lostintranslation - 7.00 @ bet365
Best Each Way: Defi Du Seuil - 4.50 @ bet365
Best Roughie: Pravalaguna - 11.00 @ bet365
