Cheltenham Festival Tips Day One

The roar as the tapes go up for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is one of the must feel moments in sport. A race won four times in the last seven years by Willie Mullins, Asterion Forlonge would look to be his best chance at this stage. Mullins has also been responsible for four of the last five winners of the Arkle, he and Nicky Henderson taking seven of the last eight runnings between them.

The Champion Hurdle has been another happy hunting ground for Henderson, a leading seven wins in the race. Epatante is the current favourite in the race for that yard despite her flopping at the meeting last year. Mullins has won nine of the twelve renewals of the Mares’ Hurdle, Benie Des Dieux would likely have made that ten in 2019 but for a last flight fall, she’s a warm order to make amends this year.

The other three chases on the card feature the notoriously difficult Ultima Handicap and the Close Brothers. First-time headgear is an interesting angle into the latter where Champion Jockey elect, Brian Hughes, has ridden two of the last four winners of the race. The amateurs close out the card in the National Hunt Chase where Jonjo O’Neill is the winning most trainer but Gordon Elliott has been responsible for three of the last six winners.

Our Tuesday Cheltenham tips will cover all these races in fantastic detail, so make sure to check out this page regularly for our latest predictions.
