GMS academy member Will Rooney gives us his top tips for Saturday's racing.

13.15 Cheltenham - Eastlake

Jonjo O'Neil has been in fabulous form this season and he can continue. On its seasonal debut, Eastlake destroyed the field to win at Aintree comfortably, and then finished a decent third next time out giving a fair amount of weight.

To this, add the great form that AP McCoy has been in this season, and he should give the horse another fantastic ride.

14.25 Cheltenham - Ma Filluelle (each way)

Nicky Henderson has done wonders with this horse. Joining the yard in October last year, it was very good over hurdles.

A winner of the Grade 2 Warwick Hurdle to the very hand Swincombe Flame, Ma Filluelle followed up with good performances in Listed competion against better class opponents.

It was a successful chaser in France before crossing the channel - and it saw the 156 rated Fago for Paul Nicholls well behind in one of its appearances.

At 11-3, it seems fairly well handicapped to finish within the places.

15.35 Cheltenham - Gemix

In a race that no horse has got real form on good ground, this race is a real head-spinner.

However the French horse Gemix has shown enough form to win the contest.

Turning over World Hurdle winner Solwhit by an enormous eight lengths in the French Champion Hurdle, it highlights the class of this horse.

Dropping back to two and a half miles, it possesses both the speed and stamina to win this race.

Red Hot Treble - 3.00 Cheltenham - The New One
                            1.50 Cheltenham - Kings Palace

                            14.05 Doncaster - Royal Irish Hussar

All three have been ultra-impressive and should win with ease.
