Ryanair Chase – Vautour 1.8 – Great form and a very difficult horse to beat.
World Hurdle – Thistlecrack 2.2 – My best bet of the festival, a brilliant horse at great odds over evens.
Brown Advisory – Fingal Bay 11 – Placed in all of his last 3 runs, has 3 wins and 1 second in 4 runs at Cheltenham.

Neptune novice hurdle – Yorkhill 3.5 – Kept our of the Supreme yesterday as they fancied this race instead, should be a good run against Yarnworth
RSA Chase – Roi Des Francs 12 – Great horse and heavily backed at higher prices, well tipped in horse racing circles.
Coral Cup – Hunters Hoof 14 – Good form going it to a very open race, decent starting price for a each way bet when most bookies are paying 5 places.
Queen Mother chase – Sire De Grugy 19 – Second to Un De Sceaux previously, great bet at these odds.
Cross country chase – Jossies orders 3.5 – Favourite for the race and in great form.
Supreme Novice hurdle – Min – Willie Mullins favourite for the race, un beaten so far and good odds at evens, especially if you back it with Sky Bet and get your money back regardless!
Arkle trophy – Douvan – Potentially the banker of the festival, another short odds Mullins horse who’s just looked incredible and barely tested on every run.
Ulitma Handicap Chase – Holywell – A much more open race with no short priced favourites, Holywell is a strong horse who’s stuttered slightly recently but has won at Cheltenham before.
Champions Hurdle – Nichols Canyon – Second favourite to Annie Power who’s stumbled at the last 2 festival races. Nichols Canyon is a horse perfectly capable of beating her.
Mares Hurdle – Polly Peachum – A great price for a great horse, up against the very popular Vroom Vroom Mag who’s odds on. Described by her trainer as “looking fantastic”
