2.05 Cheltenham tips - Vincent O’Brien County Handicap Hurdle preview

This year’s County Hurdle looks a typically competitive contest and as a result, the betting for the race looks wide open.

Jessica Harrington’s Citizenship (8/1, Paddy Power) heads the market despite a hike in the weights and the Irish raider is sure to be popular under the hands of Robbie Power.  Moon Dice (9/1, Paddy Power) is another fancied runner, while Snap Tie (14/1, BetVictor) would be incredibly well treated if he was anything like his best after two and a half years off the track.

However, Alan King’s RAYA STAR (11/1, Ladbrokes) brings some top class form to the table and he can continue his upward curve in handicaps with a victory at the Festival.

An impressive winner of the Ladbrokes at Ascot in December, the selection was last seen chasing very high class pair Zarkandar and Get Me Out Of Here home in the Betfair Hurdle.

That was a taking display against high class opposition and though he has been hit by the handicapper, his master trainer could easily have him ready to improve again.

Nick Wilby’s selection – Raya Star each-way 11/1 ( Ladbrokes)
