On The Fringe
12/1 On The Fringe to win the Foxhunters!
It is a rare occurrence for a horse to even win at Cheltenham yet this horse is looking to make it three in a row in this race after victories in 2015 and 2016, both with Nina Carberry in the saddle. The excellent Jamie Codd takes over this season and with a clear round should have little more than a steering job if the horse arrives in the same form and puts in a clear round.
4.50 - CheltenhamMartin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle
Coo Star Sivola (each-way)
Jockey Lizzie Kelly is as good as any in the saddle and gets on particularly well with this horse having won here over course and distance here in January and again at Warwick last time out by thirty-eight lengths after making all the running. Similar tactics could well reap dividends here and she may well be able to slip the field early and won’t be stopping up the hill either giving her a rock-solid chance of a place at the very least and at a big price.
5.30 - CheltenhamJohnny Henderson Grand Annual Challenge Chase
The last race of the Festival and all the early money suggests that the Arthur Moore trained Dandridge has been laid out for this race all season. Given a pipe opener over hurdles last time out at Leopardstown he will be 100% for this challenge and is seen by many as an Irish banker. He has certainly been backed accordingly and can cost the bookies with the excellent Davy Russell in the saddle.

Below you can find all the main information about the four Championship Races of the week, so you’ll have everything you need to make the best, most informed decision. All these factors have been taken into account by our expert horse racing tipsters helping you get the best tips for Cheltenham.
Cheltenham Day 1 Tips – Tuesday
The first Championship race of the week, the Champion Hurdle is the one all the two mile hurdlers want to win and has been won by some of the greats. With an honour role including Istabraq, Binocular, Hurricane Fly, Rock On Ruby, Faugheen and most recently Annie Power, it’s not hard to see why this is a premier race of the season. Eight hurdles are jumped on the way round by the horses hoping to take home the lion share of a £400,000 purse, which isn’t to be scoffed at! This year’s main contenders look to be Yanworth, Buveur D’Air, Petit Mouchoir, Brain Power and Moon Racer. Yanworth has shown all the qualities needed to win a Champion Hurdle this season, a gritty and determined sort who plenty of speed and stamina. Buveur D’Air was rerouted from fences back to hurdles when the race opened up and as a Grade 1 winning hurdling in the past, he is owed a huge amount of respect. One of our first Cheltenham tips for the championship race opener is Yanworth who can be backed at 5/1.
Cheltenham Day 2 Tips – Wednesday
Queen Mother Champion Chase
Taking place on the old course over a total of twelve fences, the Queen Mother Champion Chase is the premier two mile chase of the season and has an illustrious roll of honour. The race last year was taken by Sprinter Sacre, who pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the Festival when winning the race for a second time, three years on from his first success in the contest. This year’s race centres completely around Willie Mullins’ Douvan, as the trainer bids for his first success in the race. Douvan has been imperious in all his starts over hurdles and fences, currently unbeaten in thirteen starts since moving over to the Mullins’ yard. If he weren’t to win it’d be a huge shock and none in the field look likely to be able to touch him in this year’s renewal. It’s no surprise that Douvan is one of the banker Cheltenham tips of the festival.
Cheltenham Day 3 Tips – Thursday
Raced over the extended two mile and seven furlong trip, the Stayers’ Hurdle (formerly known as the World Hurdle) incorporates twelve hurdles and is a test of stamina and slick jumping. Won four years in succession by the great Big Buck’s, it was won last year by an imperious Thistlecrack and there is another short priced favourite for this year’s renewal. Unowhatimeanharry has been improving race by race since November 2015, winning eight races in succession including the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at the Festival last year. He looks a good fit for the race, but as a consequence is very short and perhaps isn’t the most interesting of horses to be using your Cheltenham Free bets on. Ballyoptic has shown himself to be very talented this season and he remains with potential in this sphere. He also comes at a much healthier price of 14/1 and is our Cheltenham tips for Thursday’s feature race.
Cheltenham Day 4 Tips – Friday
The premier race of the week and one of National Hunts most prestigious prizes, the Gold Cup chase is the one all trainers and jockeys want to be winning. Raced over a distance of three miles and two furlongs, twenty-two are to be jumped in a test of stamina, jumping and pure talent. Won in the past by horses such as Golden Miller, Dawn Run, Desert Orchid, Best Mate, Kauto Star, Denman and most recently Don Cossack, it’s a race synonymous with the greats of the sport. This year’s renewal looks set to be a clash between Cue Card, Native River and Djakadam, who are all strongly fancied to play a big part. Cue Card was a faller in last year’s contest when right in contention, though this year looks much tougher as no horse since 1962 has won the Gold Cup at the age of eleven. Native River looks an all around package, with his strong galloping and bold jumping style looking the perfect fit for a Gold Cup. Djakadam has been runner up the last two years of the contest and he is our final Cheltenham tip from this years feature races.
