We take a look through the card at Cheltenham on Saturday and provide readers with our November Meeting day two tips.

Day two of Cheltenham's November Meeting is centered around the Paddy Power Gold Cup Handicap Chase. Viewers also have a Grade Two Novices' Chase and two Listed races to take in on Saturday afternoon.

We had a cracking day at Cheltenham on Friday, tipping a 26/1 treble and two 33/1 winners in Kingswell Theatre and Lively Citizen. Let's hope our good form rolls into tomorrow!

November Meeting Day Two Tips - Cheltenham tips on Saturday 14th November

Race 1 - Prestbury Juvenile Hurdle Tips

Duffle Coat was well-backed to win a Listed Juvenile Hurdle at Wetherby the last day, and saw off a decent yard-stick in Hiconic, and Cabot Cliffs with apparent ease. Gordon Elliott's raider clearly has ability, but he has to give five-pounds to both Adagio - who has plenty of room for improvement - and HELL RED, and it's Paul Nicholls' charge who gets my vote.

Hell Red finished a strong second behind another good prospect in Monmiral on his only start in France. Harry Cobden's mount faced no-one of any consequence on debut at Chepstow. Hell Red made all the running, winning by 12-lengths without coming out of second gear, setting a really solid time in the process. A little juice in the ground won't bother him. He looks a really nice prospect for Nicholls to work with moving forward.

Race 2 - South West Syndicate Handicap Chase Tips

Alex Edwards has twice finished second in the Kim Muir aboard Kilfilum Cross. That experience has pushed Henry Oliver's charge to the head of the market, but his record over fences slightly puts me off, and I feel there are several runners here who're treated more kindly at the weights.

National Hunt Chase third, Lamanver Pippin is an obvious player with Will Biddick on her back. My preference, however, is for STORM CONTROL.

Kerry Lee's seven-year-old ran well in a very competitive handicap at Wetherby last time out, where he attempted to make all the running, and hung on to place after getting passed. An impressive winner of a point-to-point, I'm confident this step up in trip will bring about further improvement, and Richard Patrick boasts winning experience here at Cheltenham.

Race 3 - November Novices' Chase Tips

On paper, this looks a fascinating contest, and I fancy an upset might be on the card. Fusil Raffles has impressed over fences, but he has to carry a three-pound penalty on softening ground which might not suit. The form of Eldorado Allen's debut win over fences isn't working out well at all, and Quel Destin is thrown straight into Grade Two company on his chasing debut.

Le Patriote beat Quel Destin's highly-regard stablemate, Pic D'Orhy at Market Rasen on his reappearance and looks capable of mounting a challenge. The weights, however, are firmly in ZARKAREVA'S favour.

Henry De Bromhead's filly fell on her chasing debut at Tipperary in the summer. Zarkareva then bolted up to beat Heaven Help Us by 16 lengths at Sligo, before securing a comfortable victory in Grade Three company at Punchestown.

De Bromhead brought another mare, Put The Kettle On over to Cheltenham for this race 12 months ago. Aidan Coleman guided her to victory that day, before winning the Arkle at the Cheltenham Festival in March. It's too early to say whether Zarkareva is up to that sort of level, but she certainly seems good enough to make an impact here, with both age and sex allowances on her side.

Race 5 - Listed Handicap Hurdle Tips

He may be the oldest horse in the field, but I really fancy the chances of DELL' ARCA. David Pipe dropped his teenager back to hurdles at the start of the season, and Dell' Arca has shown a resurgence in form, winning back-to-back handicap over three miles.

Fergus Gillard was in the saddle during both of those wins, and he takes seven-pounds off Dell' Arca's back again, meaning he carries just 9-13 into this Listed race. A former winner of the Greatwood, Dell' Arca has plenty of experience here at Cheltenham, and he can put that to good effect to win this Listed contest.

Race 6 - Intermediate Handicap Hurdle Tips

Nicky Henderson has decided to try and make the most of Son Of Camas' handicap mark before going chasing, but I fear this trip - on ground which could be quite testing come the end of Saturday's card - may be a little too taxing for him. 

Captain Tom Cat and Shinobi have to be considered. Yet, if this does turn into a war of attrition, I think KEPAGGE might come out on top.

David Pipe's six-year-old went unbeaten in three starts last term. Having got away with a shocking round of jumping to win on his hurdles debut at Leicester, Kepagge looked much more assured at Doncaster, seeing off an odds-on favourite by nine lengths when giving his rival seven-pounds at the weights.

Again, Kepagge has to concede weight to the field, but he's a tough sort with plenty of experience in testing conditions. If he's progressed again during the off-season, then this mark of 137 is highly workable.

Race 7 - Listed Mares' Flat Race Tips

Elle Est Belle couldn't have been more impressive when winning on debut at Aintree, and she could come in for significant support before the off. I, however, am a huge fan of ISHKHARA LADY, and I fancy Harry Fry's charge may be too strong for her younger rivals.

Ishkhara Lady made a winning debut at Plumpton in December 2018, beating five future winners by 18-lengths on soft ground. Having spent almost two years on the treatment table, Fry's mare did brilliantly on her return at Uttoxeter last month, winning under a penalty on good ground which I feared may catch her out.

Softer conditions will certainly suit this sizeable mare, and I think she'll relish the conditions of Saturday's race. Ishkhara Lady will be the last of my November Meeting day two tips.
