Cheltenham Festival Tips – Day Three

A dual feature day starts with the Turners Novices’ Chase, formerly known as the JLT and Marsh Novices’ Chase. In it’s eleven-year history, Ireland had enjoyed total domination of the race but winners from both Philip Hobbs and Nicky Henderson have helped to stem the flow of winners from the Emerald Isle in recent times.

Another relatively new race at the festival is Dawn Run Novices’ Hurdle which takes place later on the card. Now in its seventh year, Willie Mullins had won every single running of the race until Henry De Bromhead and Rachael Blackmore teamed up with Telmesomethinggirl who won impressively despite leaning left on the run last year.

One of the biggest stars on display on the Thursday of the 2022 Cheltenham Festival is Allaho in the Ryanair Chase. An emphatic twelve length winner of the race last time around, he has continued in the same vein this year with two wins from two, a winner of the John Durkan on reappearance followed by slamming a small but quality field at Thurles in January. Owned by Cheveley Park Stud, he holds very strong claims to extend Willie Mullins’ impressive record in training four of the last six winners.

The Stayers’ Hurdle is a race where favourites had great success up until 2019 with five of the previous ten winners all heading the market. However, with winners returning at 12/1 and 50/1 in the last two runnings that trend has been bucked slightly and this year’s renewal doesn’t look like the simplest of equations. With a few fancied runners doing themselves more harm than good during their preparation, last year’s victor Flooring Porter finds as favourite behind the likes of Klassical Dream, Thyme Hill, Champ and former winner Paisley Park.

Three handicaps on the card are typically competitive, the Pertemps particularly given the qualifying process for running in the race. Amateur riders are once again in the spotlight for the Kim Muir, a race in which many will be looking towards the rides of Jamie Codd and Derek O’Connor for clues. Then there is the Festival Plate, a race in which well backed favourites have obliged in three of the last four years.

Our Thursday Cheltenham tips will cover all these races in fantastic detail, so make sure to check out this page regularly for our latest predictions. If you’re looking for tips for other days please check back to the Cheltenham Festival homepage.
