Cheltenham Festival Tips – Day Four

The final day of the week but the big one headlined by the Blue Riband of the National Hunt season, the Cheltenham Gold Cup which will be the centrepiece of the Cheltenham day 4 tips.  Juvenile hurdlers kick off the day in the Triumph Hurdle, a race that looks like being a proper test, full of front-runners.

The novice hurdlers stay in the limelight with the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle third up on the card following the County Hurdle, a race that Dan Skelton has made his own in recent years, winning it in 2016, 2018 and 2019.

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

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is traditionally the first chase on the card, the rails moved so that they race on fresh ground. It looks as open a race as any at the Cheltenham Festival 2020, Al Boum Photo bidding to make it back to back wins for Willie Mullins.

The Foxhunters is always one of the biggest betting heats of the entire year, classed as the amateur’s Gold Cup, run over the same distance and twenty-two fences as the big race. The Grand Annual and the Martin Pipe round out the week with a pair of fiendishly difficult handicaps. Myracing tipped up the winner of the latter in 2019 to finish the week on a winner so keep your eyes peeled for 2020’s Cheltenham Festival tips.
