Race 1: Triumph Hurdle

Sir Gino's Absence from this race has opened up the contest to the rest of the field to fill the void. STORM HEART, NURBURGRING AND KARGESE, are all runners that will be expected to fight for the first place as we get day four of the Cheltenham Festival on the way.

Race 3: Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle

CAPTAIN TEAGUE AND GIDLEIGH PARK are fair options in this race. however, HIGH CLASS HERO did a fantastic job well over two miles at the Thrushes and didn't';t look like he was going to stop even after crossing the finish line. he isa hot prospect ahead of the race start, you may wanna keep a close eye on this one.

Race 4: Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup

GALOPIN DE CHAMPS is the runner that has attracted interest from experience punters around the UK, he was brilliant last year in the Leopardstown in Christmas. Showing  his superiority at the DRF and a quarter mile really suits him. FASTORSLOW AND CORACH RAMBLER are the two runners expected to challenge this favourite.

 Race 5 : St James's Place Festival Challenge Cup Open Hunders' Chase

ITS ON THE LINE is expected to be a strong stayer for FERNS LOCK. BILLAWAY won't be far behind and if pushed correctly may produce the goods in this race.

Race 6: Mrs Paddy Power MaresChase

DINOBLUE is look fit for a good trip this time around. She fished second to Masakada last year after standing on the second last and falling into the last fence. She won over two miles one at Leopardstown in the style of a mare who would be fine over this distance. She can win this race.
