Cheltenham Festival Tips Day Two

The opening race of Day Two at Cheltenham Festival 2019 is the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle. Run over two miles and five furlongs, it has been won by some top class horses in recent years including Simonsig, The New One, and in 2014 Faugheen. The Irish aeroplane went on to win both the Champion Hurdle and the Irish Champion Hurdle the year after.

Our second Cheltenham Festival day two tip comes in the RSA Chase. This three mile contest for novice chasers is often a stepping stone to the Gold Cup, although the last horse to go on to win the main event was Lord Windermere five years ago.

Race three of Day Two is the Coral Cup; run over two and a half furlongs, a maximum field of 20 take on the hurdles course for near £60,000 to the winner.

The Championship race and the highlight of our Day Two tips is the Queen Mother Champion Chase. All eyes this year are on Nicky Henderson’s charge Altior, who appears to be certain to scare off the majority of his competition. Winner of all 12 of his chase starts, and over £800,000 in prize money, this race promises to cement his reputation as one of the best two mile chasers of all time if he can make it back to back wins.

A change of pace follows with the Cross Country Chase, run over three miles and six furlongs. Contenders take on a variety of different styles of fences, criss-crossing the Cheltenham track before taking on the tough uphill finish. Punters can expect to see plenty of recognisable names in the line up this year, with the racecard featuring a mix of cross country experts and high class hurdlers and chasers taking on this new challenge for the first time.

The penultimate race for our Cheltenham Festival Day Two tips is the Juvenile Handicap Hurdle, better known as the Fred Winter. This race is a common target for horses who either lack the quality or the experience to go for the Triumph Hurdle at the start of day four.

Paul Nicholls has a fine record in this race, with three wins in the last ten years, while Gordon Elliott has won two recent editions including the 2018 running. Both the 2017 and the 2018 winners were sent off at 33/1, so don’t write off outsiders immediately.

The final race of Day Two of Cheltenham Festival is the Champion Bumper, and another opportunity for upcoming horses to make their mark on the scene. Run over two miles, it’s a National Hunt Flat race meaning no fences. In keeping with the theme of inexperience, horses cannot have run more than four times, meaning there is little form on offer for punters. The most recognisable recent winner was Cue Card in 2010, winning at huge odds of 40/1.
