Perfect ten for Mayo News tipsters


Ger Flanagan

THE 2019 Cheltenham Festival will go down as one of the most eventful ever, and anyone who followed last week’s preview in The Mayo News will hopefully have picked up a few winners along the way.
In total, Michael Duffy chose eight winners and five places during his preview of the four-day festival, enjoying a bumper Day One where he went for Duc Des Genievres (5-1), A Plus Tard (5-1) and a headline pick for the Champion Hurdle in the shape of Epsoir D’Allen, who returned a massive 16-1.
The other winners he plumed for during the week were City Island (8-1), Altior (4-11), Sire De Berlais (4-1), Paisley Park (11-8) and Ch’tibello (12-1) on the final day.
In his ‘Horses for Courses’ column, Pat Henry tipped up Al Boum Photo (12-1) to win the Gold Cup for Willie Mullins as well as Siruh Du Lac (9-2) to win the on Thursday. He also had placed horses in the shape of Thomas Darby (28-1) and Bun Doran (11-1).
The Festival was one of the most competitive in history so getting ten winners on the board wasn’t a bad effort at all from The Mayo News tipsters!
