Triumph Hurdle

French import Salvator Mundi could well be the horse to side with if the rumours about Sir Gino’s health are to be believed.

Mullins’ runner finished just 1¾ lengths behind Sir Gino when they raced against one another in the Listed Prix Wild Monarch at Auteuil back in April, with a gulf back to the third placed horse.

If you’re looking for a horse to take the favourite on with then you shouldn’t go far wrong with Salvator Mundi.

2024 Triumph Hurdle tip: Salvator Mundi WIN

County Hurdle

L’Eau Du Sud could well be Dan Skelton’s best chance of a winner this week with the six-year-old coming into the race after an excellent second in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury.

In front of Go Dante and Faivoir that day, he looks sure to be in the mix coming up the Cheltenham hill.

Henry De Bromhead’s Magical Zoe swerved an alternative entry earlier in the week in favour of a run in the County, which I find a pretty significant move for last year’s Dawn Run Mares’ runner-up.

2024 County Hurdle tip: L'Eau Du Sud, Magical Zoe E/W

Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle

Harry Fry’s charge Gidleigh Park is unbeaten in a trio of starts over timber this term having also collected a bumper last season to be four from four.

He looks to have an outstanding chance in the contest that many refer to as the “potato race”. Each-way shouts can be given also to Captain Teague and Lecky Watson.

2024 Albert Bartlett tip: Gidleigh Park WIN, Captain Teague & Lecky Watson (both E/W)

Cheltenham Gold Cup

The Gold Cup this year really is Galopin Des Champs' to lose and I cannot see any other horse in the field being able to run up to his level.

Each-way players might want to side with this season’s Charlie Hall scorer Gentlemansgame (16/1) who is hardly getting a mention, but has been kept fresh for this by the rather shrewd Mouse Morris.

Hunters Chase

Despite playing up slightly in the paddock at Wetherby, the mare Sine Nomine beat a useful field by some margin in their Open Hunters’ Chase.

At odds of 16/1, and getting a nice weight allowance from the boys, I think Fiona Needham’s sweetheart can run a massive race in this Hunter feature.

Dangers include Billaway & Its On The Line.

2024 Hunters Chase tip: Sine Nomine WIN

Mares Chase

Dinoblue is another big runner for trainer Willie Mullins and owner JP McManus on Festival week.

The 160-rated mare should have too much class for her contemporaries here and many regard her as the second banker of the day after the Gold Cup favourite.

Should she run, I’d be interested on an each-way play on Amy Murphy’s Carole’s Pass who was a tidy winner at Exeter.

2024 Mares Chase tip: Dinoblue WIN, Carole's Pass E/W

Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle

The “Getting Out Stakes” looks like a nice opportunity for Gordon Elliott’s consistent six-year-old Better Days Ahead to collect the bounty.

The Milan-gelding won by a street in a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse in November and can shine in a handicap like this. His Navan showing behind Slade Steel also reads really well now.

Others for the shortlist include No Ordinary Joe and Quai De Bourbon.
