Cheltenham – Best picks from the tipsters

Champion Chase - Douvan

As the Cheltenham festival is slowly creeping upon us we have been in touch with our tipsters to provide us with their early thoughts on what they see as their best selections at this stage in the proceedings. This should provide you with some insight in to where to stick your own money. As we appreciate the tipsters are all busy people, we kept the survey nice and short asking only for their best Cheltenham picks.

We asked specifically for a Lucky 15 bet they felt most confident in or saw most value in at this moment in time. Here is the response we received back.

As you can see there are some differing opinions in certain races. This year certainly is a hard one to call with so many big names missing. A very open festival this year, so is worthwhile getting as much help as you can from those who live horse racing day in, day out. Find the tipster you trust and decide to follow or do your own research alongside these opinions to provide yourself with a more informed choice.
