PY CATCHERS; James Pyman's horses to follow.
Advice Follow for remainder of season Balgarry David Pipe 7th, Cheltenham, March 14 The lightly raced hurdler stretched the field by setting a searching pace in the Coral Cup in his bid to defy a penalty but had nothing left to give once headed approaching the last. This was a much better effort than the finishing position suggests and the combination of some rest and a drop in trip can see him bounce back.
Advice Follow for remainder of season Jackies Solitaire Anthony Honeyball 7th, Cheltenham, March 14 Her jumping was always fluent and she didn't really get the run of the race, but she made eyecatching headway in the home straight and should be suited by a greater test of stamina.
Advice Follow for remainder of season Dee Ee Williams Nick Gifford 6th, Cheltenham, March 16 Only his second appearance of the season, but with the blinkers back on he proved he retains a big engine and should now be match-tight. Expect improvement when returning to a sharper track, with the valuable 2m1/2f handicap for conditionals at Aintree an obvious target given he won the race two seasons ago by six lengths off just a 1lb lower mark. Advice Follow for remainder of season Dysios Denis Cullen 15th, Cheltenham, March 16 Had a mountain to climb on form in the Triumph but travelled well for along way despite running with the choke out, so there is plenty of room for improvement if he can start to relax better.
Advice Follow for remainder of season Kentford Grey Lady Py Catchers threw up two great winners at the Cheltenham Festival in Hunt Ball (13-2) in the Pulteney Land Investments Chase and Bellvano (20-1) in the Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase
