Cheltenham Ruby offer

Run over two miles and about half a furlong on the Old Course at Cheltenham where it often pays to back something that gets in excess of 2 miles.

Those with previous festival form, have fared particularly well in the event. In addition, you often need a horse that stays further than two miles.
