The Cheltenham Festival is about to come to a thrilling climax, and our crack team of racing experts are here to guide you through Friday’s action. Top jockey Ruby Walsh, fake tan guru and TV celeb Matt Chapman, our very own Cheltenham hero Turftalk Tom and a mysterious Paddy Power Trader are pitting their punting skills against each other to bring you as many winners as possible.
Thursday was a tough day for punters, as Paddy Power clawed some money back after the Tuesday carnage. Three of our tipsters did tip up Vautour however who was mightily impressive in giving Ruby Walsh yet another winner at the Festival.
Friday’s feature race is the Cheltenham Gold Cup – the biggest race of the Festival. Our panel are divided, but our sneaky trader and the in-form Matt Chapman are both siding with Silviniaco Conti who won the King George so impressively in December. Can our team of top tipsters continue to empty Paddy’s pockets? There seems to be general agreement that Black Hercules is a good thing, while the first race looks like a fierce clash between Peace And Co and Discosimo.
