[Free Tips] Tips For Cheltenham Festival Day 4
The fourth and final day of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival has come around too quickly, but it promises to be a thriller. It kicks off with what looks a vintage edition of the Triumph Hurdle, whilst the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle will test the stamina of some top novice hurdlers over 3 miles. But day 4 is all about the Cheltenham Gold Cup, jump racing’s Blue Riband event.

There are lots of horses that like to force the pace in the 2020 Triumph Hurdle but Allmankind could have the pace to lead them all after handing out a 9-length beating to useful yardstick Cerberus at Chepstow last time. That form looks to give him the beating of the best of the Irish horses.
Paul Nicholls could have another Zarkander on his hand in the shape of Solo, whilst his other runner Sir Psycho also has a chance.

Thyme Hill has a terrific chance on the form book, considering he split Envoi Allen and Abacadabras in last year’s Festival bumper and is unbeaten over hurdles. But the form of the Phillip Hobbs stable is a major concern after the flops of the well-fancied Sporting John and Defi Du Seuil. Latest Exhibition, Monkfish, Harry Senior, and Ramses De Teille are all respected but I’m playing two at bigger prices each-way against the field.

Last year’s winner Al Boum Photo has proved this test is ideal, but he faces some new rivals that could be as equally suited by this test. Santini fits the bill after looking sure to appreciate the extra distance of the Gold Cup after finishing second in last season’s RSA, and trainer Nicky Henderson is in brilliant form. Santini finished just in front of Delta Work last year but Gordon Elliott’s 7-year-old has won his last two in the fashion that suggests he’ll also relish this test. But it’s noticeable that Davy Russell in not aboard Delta Work.
