The Best Horse Racing Tips for Cheltenham on Saturday & Sunday


Cheltenham, the home of national hunt racing, stages some great jumps action this weekend. We will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for two races on Saturday’s card and one on Sunday.

The Paddy Power Gold Cup is the feature race on Saturday and we will supply a Horse Racing tip for this valuable 2m 4f handicap chase, along with the Listed 3m Paddy Power Games Handicap Hurdle at 2.50pm. Our Sunday tip runs in the competitive Greatwood Handicap Hurdle, run over an extended 2m at 2.55pm.

Our Tip for the 2.15pm on Saturday at Cheltenham:

As you would expect for the first major handicap chase of the jump season, Cheltenham’s valuable Paddy Power Gold Cup is just as competitive as any of the recent renewals of this 2m 4f contest.

The ex Kayley Woolacott-trained Lalor is of tremendous interest on his first start for Paul Nicholls, should Harry Cobden’s mount show anything like the form of his first and only victory over fences when beating the likes of Dynamite Dollars and Defi Du Seuil in a Grade 2 novices’ chase at this meeting three years ago.

Protektorat, Al Dancer, Midnight Shadow, Spiritofthegames and Coole Cody are all capable of running big races. But it is the lightly-weighted Galahad Quest which makes plenty of each-way appeal for trainer Nick Williams.

The mount of David Noonan, a Grade 2 winner over hurdles at Prestbury Park as a juvenile, made gradual progress over fences last season, culminating in a comfortable victory in a limited novices’ handicap chase at Haydock.

The five-year-old was unfancied on his first run of the season at Wetherby recently but looked a serious danger to the well-backed favourite Good Boy Bobby approaching the final fence, until lack of condition told on the run-in.

With that run under his belt and only 10st 7lb to carry, Galahad Quest is fancied to run a big race in this famous handicap.

Our Tip for the 2.50pm on Saturday at Cheltenham:

The veteran Kansas City Chief won well over course and distance last month and it would be no surprise to see the 12-year-old go well again. However, the mount of Miss Victoria Malzard faces several unexposed types here, in particular Ballymillsy and Dragon Bones, who have a score to settle after the pair dominated a Worcester novices’ hurdle back in April.

On that occasion the two improving performers came to the final hurdle with the race between them, only for Nigel Twiston-Davies’ charge to hit the deck, leaving the race at the mercy of the Ian Williams-trained mare.

Both horses have since recorded victories, the most impressive being thatthat of Ballymillsy, who thrashed some decent handicappers over an extended 3m 2f at Newton Abbot last month. The mount of Sam Twiston-Davies looks a talented staying hurdler in the making and can continue his progression by taking this Listed contest.

Our Tip for the 2.55pm on Sunday at Cheltenham:

The Grade 3 Greatwood Handicap Hurdle, the first major contest of it’s kind during the national hunt season, has once again resulted in a fiercely competitive renewal, headed by one of the leading juvenile hurdlers of last season, the David Pipe-trained Adagio.

It would be no surprise to see the mount of Tom Scudamore go well, despite his burden of 11st 12lb. But in receipt of plenty of weight, the unexposed pair of West Cork and No Ordinary Joe are likely to head the betting for this extended 2m contest.

From a value perspective however, the horse who makes most appeal is Camprond, from the in-form stable of Philip Hobbs. Runner-up in a competitive handicap at Aintree’s Grand National meeting, the gelding will be having his fourth start of the current campaign at Prestbury Park.

The mount of Aidan Coleman has been impressive in winning his last two outings and with fitness guaranteed, may be capable of defying his revised mark of 140.
