The Cheltenham Festival is just around the corner once again and as the Willie Mullins bingo starts to pick up pace and the rumour mill hits overdrive the team from the Racehour podcast and special guests lined up to set the record straight at the famous Goat Bar in Dublin. Spectators will be back at Prestbury Park for the Festival this year as the pandemic subsides and restrictions allow full crowds at the famous venue to see the very best take on the best from Ireland and the UK and the spectators were back too for the best preview night on the circuit!

Bookmakers.co.uk and our Cheltenham Festival sponsors Fansbet have put together another superb panel for the evening with a plethora of tips, analysis, entertainment and heated debate to get stuck into from wherever you on a fully recorded Cheltenham special.

This year’s panel is once again marshalled by Up The Ante and Racing Post's David Jennings (host), Cheltenham Festival winning jockey Mikey Fogarty, Aintree Grand National winning jockey David Mullins, Racing TV presenter Donn McClean, and of course the #Racehour podcast duo of Diarmuid Nolan and Dean Ryan. From Fansbet, the team were joined by Dan Overall, a super judge and the man with the boosts, specials and betting for the week courtesy of Fansbet.

Straight into the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and beyond as the panel debate Jonbon, Sir Gerhard, Constitution Hill and Dysart Dynamo, who what and where will they run and more importantly who will win the first race of the week once the roar subsides and the horses do the talking.

All four days covered, the mares races and the handicaps discussed separately and then it’s time for the charity bets, courtesy of Fansbet to try and find the naps that can raise some money for a good cause after all the fun has been had for the week.

A few hours of Cheltenham Festival entertainment that is not to be missed!

Key Races Cheltenham Festival Day One

The panel start at the beginning with the Supreme and the consensus was clear no one really knows where they will go, but if the big guns turn up a hell of race is in store.

The next race the panel discuss is the Arkle Novices' Chase where Edwardstone is a favourite for the UK but can he hold off a strong Irish challenge from Blue Lord and others? The panel don’t think it’s a great renewal and could we have a guest in the audience who owns the winner this year?

Then it’s time for the Champion Hurdle and Honeysuckle. The wonder mare looks to have the race in her lap but a small matter of a returning aeroplane in the shape of Appreciate It for Willie Mullins might spoil the party? She has faced the best before but a new challenge awaits.

The National Hunt Chase is next up and Stattler might have stamina doubts? Run Wild Fred is a bit of a freak and it wouldn’t be the Racehour without Pat’s Fancy being talked up to perform at the biggest week in racing, could it be a result that matches the panel’s confidence?

Key Races Cheltenham Festival Day Two

On to day two and the team discuss the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle where again who runs where is the topic and could it be a penalty kick for Sir Gerhard this year to add to a Champion Bumper win in 2021?

The Brown Advisory Chase could set up as one of the races of the week if Galopin Des Champs takes on Bravemansgame but will it happen? If not can anything beat Paul Nicholl’s star chaser or will the smart jumper have it all his own way? If it’s not a clash of titans what is the each way value?

The Queen Mother Champion Chase is a race to dream about as Shiskin and Energumene lock horns again but who will come out on top this time? Chacun Pour Soi is still around, Nube Negra is an up and coming force and maybe Put The Kettle On will challenge them all at her favorite track and win again like she did in 2021.

It’s two stars of the future for discussion in the Champion Bumper as American Mike and Facile Vega split opinions across the panel.

Key Races Cheltenham Festival Day Three

The Thursday at Cheltenham starts with the Turners Novices' Chase which is suggested as the race of the week if Galopin Des Champs avoids Bravemansgame and heads to tackle Bob Olinger here over a shorter trip. Is that the right move, if so who wins?

The Ryanair Chase is next of course, but should it be at the Festival, does it detract from the meeting given hot race favourite could go for a Gold Cup if this wasn’t an option? Is Allaho the banker of the week for the Irish and Willie Mullins?

The Stayers Hurdle is feature race of the day and according to the panel and one member in particular Thyme Hill should be a short priced favourite and will make up for missing the race last year. Flooring Porter will big to retain the crown and with Klassical Dream and Champ in the line up it’s a difficult one to find agreement on.

Key Races Cheltenham Festival Day Four

Vauban and Pied Piper hog the limelight for the Triumph Hurdle which kicks off Gold Cup day at Cheltenham. The Albert Bartlett hurdle has so many question marks to discuss and the panel are divided on the best chances with some big priced horses mentioned favourably.

The Gold Cup is the big one and across the board opinions vary but strong cases made for last years winner Minella Indo, the up and coming Protektorat and last years runner up A Plus Tard. Could Galvin be the safe option, there is loads to digest for the biggest race of the week and perhaps the toughest to solve.
