Cheltenham Festival Tips - Day Two

Day two of the Cheltenham Festival promises another scintillating set of races, starting with the Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle.

Yanworth has understandably solid claims in this having done little wrong so far this season, yet any and all of Willie Mullins’ runners warrant respect.

The RSA Chase shows off racing's next generation of staying chasers. The best of the British, More Of That, will take on the best of the Irish, No More Heroes, with little form angle to compare the two.

Sire De Grugy (L) and Sprinter Sacre (R)

The Coral Cup and the Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle both promise to be exciting handicaps, while the Glenfarcas Cross Country Chase is always an exciting affair, with the return of Balthazar King a heartwarming prospect.

The feature race of the day pits the fastest chasers against each other, with one trailblazer, Un De Sceaux, hoping to fend off returning champions Sire De Grugy, Dodging Bullets and Sprinter Sacre.

The day is finished off with the Weatherbys Champion Bumper, a race that often throws up several exciting horses for the future.

Watch the video above for three tips ahead of Wednesday’s action.
