[Free Tips] Tips For Cheltenham Festival Day 1

The 2020 Cheltenham Festival is finally here and the main highlights on day-one are the Champion Hurdle and the Mares’ Hurdle. But our best bets come in three of the top-class supporting races, the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, the Arkle, and the Ultima Handicap Chase.

Supreme Novices’ Hurdle Analysis

13:30 at Cheltenham Racecourse on 10th March

There will be lots of money-back concessions or extra places available for the first race of the festival, so it will be crazy not to have a bet in the 2020 Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. The winning score stands at England 5 Ireland 5 in the last decade, but Ireland have won five of the last seven.

Owner Mrs Donnelly doesn’t seem to mind whether England or Ireland kickstart the festival with a winner as she saddles the joint favourites Shiskin (Nicky Henderson) and Asterion Forlonge Willie Mullins) but I’m hoping that both will be beaten.

At an each-way price the fancy is Abacadbras. Gordon Elliott’s 6-year-old was fourth in last year’s Cheltenham Bumper and the form of that race has worked out well, with this horse winning a Grade 1 at the Dublin Racing Festival last time.

Arkle Chase Analysis

14:10 at Cheltenham Racecourse on 10th March

Willie Mullins has won four of the last five editions of the Arkle Chase and it will be interesting to see whether the money comes for his sole representative Cashback. However, he was beaten by Notebook last time, who also beat Ireland’s other main contender Fakir D’Oudairies on his penultimate run.

But as both Notebook and Fakir D’Oudairies under-performed at last year’s Cheltenham Festival, an each-way bet on Brewin’upastorm could be the answer. Olly Murphy’s 7-year-old was fourth in last year’s Ballymore and should be ideally suited to a strong-run Arkle.

Ultima Handicap Chase Analysis

14:50 at Cheltenham Racecourse on 10th March

It’s England 10 Ireland 0 in the last 10 editions of the Ultima Handicap Chase and only Elwood and the well-fancied Discorama fly the flag for Ireland this year.

Vinndication has form in the bag over hurdles and fences that entitles him to be ranked higher than his mark of 159, but that’s still 4lb higher than any of the last 10 winners have shouldered. Three other English-trained horses that look potentially well-treated on their best runs at Cheltenham are Mister Malarkey, Mulcahys Hill, and The Conditional.

Mister Malarkey was fourth in a decent edition of the RSA last year, whilst Mulcahys Hill beat Wholestone in a novice chase here earlier in the season, and The Conditional looked good when beating West Approach in a handicap here before running second in the Ladbrokes Trophy.

It’s Who Dares Wins that gets the vote after a decent win at Kempton last time. He battled on well that day over a shorter trip and this classy stayer on the flat gets in on a 2lb lower mark than when fifth in the 2018 Pertemps Hurdle Final behind one of this year’s leading Gold Cup fancies Delta Work.
