Cheltenham Tips Day 4

Cheltenham Tips for Day 4 of the Cheltenham Festival which is also known as Gold Cup day. For 2017 the fourth Day of the Cheltenham Festival will be on 17/3/2017.

Cheltenham Festival Friday starts with the Triumph Hurdle which is a race for four year old novices over 2miles of the New Course. Nicky Henderson trained the first three home in 2015 and won the race in 2009 and 2010 also. Paul Nicholls has had two recent winners too. Head over to our preview page for this race to see their runners and another trainer to follow in the opening race of Day 4.

Next up we can have another crack at finding a big odds winner. The County hurdle is normally run at a very fast pace making for another exciting race early on day four. You would think this race would be wide open with lots of different trainers winning the race but Irish and Uk champion trainers Mullins and Nicholls have a very good record.

The Albert Bartlett Novices hurdle is run over 3 miles and a really tough test of stamina for younger horses. Those still novices at age 7 or 8 have a good record in this race including last years winner Unowhatimeanharry and 2015 winner Martello Tower. Something to look out for when they don't normally make up a large proportion of the field. For more tips and trends to help you find the winner of this race, please see our full race preview.

The feature race of the day on Gold Cup Day is of course the Gold Cup! The highlight of the four day meeting and the prize that all owners, trainers and jockeys dream of winning. This is one prize which has so far eluded Willie Mullins but he looks to put that right this year with lots of entries! Which one of the Mullins horses is the best bet? Or should we try to oppose them all? Cheltenham Gold Cup tips.

The form of many of the runners in the Foxhunter Chase is hard to assess. Fortunately we have members at OLBG who follow these races. Head over to our race preview to find out their tips for the 2017 Cheltenham Foxhunter Chase.

David and Martin Pipe

Two hard to call handicap races finish off the Cheltenham Festival. The Martin Pipe conditionals hurdle is one which has eluded David Pipe in recent years but you would think he would love to win the race named after his father. See the tips here.

The final race of Day four of the Cheltenham festival and the final race of the meeting is the Grand Annual. Named after Nicky Hendersons father, Johnny Henderson, this is another race which has particular meaning for a top class trainer. Does he have any with a chance this year?
