Cheltenham 2018 – Tuesday

The big race on Day 1 of the 2018 Cheltenham Festival is the Champion Hurdle. Last years winner Buveur D’Air is currently trading at just 4/9 for a repeat victory. His main market rival is the 2015 winner, Faugheen, who was off the track for almost two years, when making an impressive return in November last at Punchestown. There was just four runners, but he won in a very good time. He flopped last time at Leopardstown over Christmas though, and while nothing has come to light yet for that, and was below his best at the same track last time too. He is now a ten year old, which is tipping on for a potential Champion Hurdle winner.  Make sure to sign up to my Cheltenham Tips 2018 package for all my Cheltenham Day 1 Tips.

2018 Queen Mother Champion Chase - Preview and Tips

Cheltenham 2018 – Wednesday

The big race on the second day, is the Queen Mother Champion Chase, but the likely field for the race is still unclear at the moment. Special Tiara won the race last season, but with Douvan disappointing that was a very poor renewal. Douvan was supposedly nearing a return from the injury he sustained in that race before Christmas, but was then ruled out for the season by his connections, only to recently come back into the picture. Last years Arkle winner Altior is currently odds on favourite having recently returned from wind surgery with an easy win at Newbury. If Douvan and Altior could get to the race at their best, it would be a race for the ages. Min entered the picture with an impressive victory at Leopardstown during the Dublin Racing Festival.

Cheltenham 2018 – Thursday

Day 3 of Cheltenham 2018, and the feature race is the Stayers Hurdle, although it probably only just edges out the Ryanair as the race of the day. Last years winner Nichols Canyon is sadly no longer with us, after a fall in the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown. The winner of that race Apples Jade, seems certain to go for the Mares Hurdle, so the Stayers is lacking in star quality. Sam Spinner is favorite to step up to the mark, and he jumped better when winning the Long Walk at Ascot last time. He’s improving fast, although you would be concerned about better ground for him, as it might make it more of a speed test, and also put more pressure on his jumping, which isn’t always as slick as you’d like.

Cheltenham 2018 – Friday

The last day of the festival, and for many the highlight of the week, with The Cheltenham Gold headlining the card. Having somehow battled back to win last years RSA Novices Chase having nearly run out, and come to a standstill on the run in, Might Bite is favourite for the Gold Cup this year. He won the King George over Christmas, although he wasn’t as impressive as I expected him to be, and there has to be a worry about him repeating last years antics back at Cheltenham, as he did the same over hurdles here, and the positioning of the exit to the stable-yard is clearly a concern. He does look a potential superstar though. Sizing John won the Gold Cup last year, before also adding the Punchestown version, but after a winning comeback this season, he then flopped badly at Leopardstown over Christmas, and needs to bounce back from that. Make sure you check out my Cheltenham 2018 Tips Package, for all my top tips and analysis for Day 4.
