HORSE RACING: Tips for Day Two at Cheltenham Festival 2012
8:40am Wednesday 14th March 2012 in Other
IT is Day Two of the 2012 Cheltenham Festival and our News tipster provides you with their thoughts for today’s possible winners.
A big field kicks-off the second day of the famous festival with the Diamond Jubilee Chase for amateur riders at 1.30pm. Three horses well worth looking at in this one are HARRY THE VIKING, ALFIE SPINNER and UNIVERSAL SOLDIER.
Next up at 2.05pm is the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle. Our tipster believes SOUS LES CIEUX could be the one to beat in this race, closely followed by MAKE YOUR MARK and NELSON’S BRIDGE.
The 2.40pm RSA Chase is a smaller field with some good horses, but our tipster has selected BOBS WORTH and FIRST LIEUTENANT as the ones to look out for.
Next comes the big race of the day at 3.20pm with the Queen Mother Champion Chase. SIZING EUROPE is the favourite to retain the crown he won last year and our tipster is going with that – although he likes the look of BIG ZEB.
The 4pm Coral Cup has a large open field. Our tipster likes AP McCoy’s mount GET ME OUT OF HERE, while other horses to tickle his fancy are the likes of CARLITO BRIGANTE, SPIRIT RIVER and DARE ME.
The penultimate race of the day comes at 4.40pm with the Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle. Another large field and our tipster likes SPORTSMASTER – another AP McCoy mount – for this one. Although good each-way bets could be had on GORGEOUS SIXTY and CHILL.
The final race of the day is the Champion Bumper at 5.15pm and our tipster has selected SIR JOHNSON with each-way bets on CHAMPAGNE FEVER and Royal GUARDSMAN.
