#CheltenhamFestival Day 2 Picks

It’s a shame Vaniteux fell as second place was guaranteed and that would have made the literal perfect start. Even without each way shot that went off a massive 10/1, yesterday was a successful day.

To recap for new readers, we had 4/1, 8/1, 10/1 and Evens winners as well as 50/1 and 8/1 places and by using the right offers, didn’t lose any money and ended up with a healthy profit.

Day 2 however is always much harder to forecast but sticking with the same principles, here’s another go at making a fortune.


The mighty YANWORTH is the correct favourite with the bookies having crashed from 2/1 to 5/4 overnight. You can get him to win with Paddy Power at 5/1 by opening a new account. Yorkhill will cause him trouble but I reckon he will just be pipped. If you’re not a favourite backer, there’s each way value In YALA ENKI at 40/1 – don’t forget to use the Skybet money back offer for all customers if your horse loses in the first race.


There are five fancied horses in this race for me so splitting your stakes is advised. I can’t see past the favourite MORE OF THAT at 15/8 for the win but will be backing SEEYOUATMIDNIGHT at 11/1 simply for value. He’s won three on the bounce and likes to take the race away from everyone else.


This is the Coral Cup so Coral are paying 6 places, you’d be silly to use anyone else for this race. This race is too tough to call but BLAZER and WAXIES DARGLE are my two small stake punts on this one.


The main event should be taken by UN DE SCEAUX at 8/13 but if you are backing him, you need to take advantage of 888 Sports new customer offer at 6/1. He should be followed home by SPRINTER SACRE – no longer his world beating best but the pick of the rest of the field and worth an each way punt at 5/1 in case Un De Sceaux falls.


I haven’t seen the old Balthazar King that loved a big race for a while and he brings form of 2 falls in the last 4 so I’m opting for another favourite in JOSIE’S ORDERS. However, don’t be too hasty in placing your bet at any odds as 4/1 each way would make it a great bet.


Lots of good but not great horses take to the field for the Fred Winter. I like the look of JALEO but also fancy Missy Tata, Duke of Media or Romain De Senam to pinch a place. Really open race and too tough to be confident in.


I would be backing BALLYANDY in this race if Sam Twiston-Davies wasn’t on my very poor form list. Either sit this one out of close your eyes and choose if you fancy a bet on this one.
