Cheltenham Festival - ITV Racing Tips

Racing Post experts pick their best bet for the day for the second day of the Cheltenham Festival in a bid to help you find more winners.

Champion Chase Tip - Defi Du Seuil
DEFI DU SEUIL has been the standout 2m chaser in Britain this season and he can cap this campaign with an eighth Grade 1. His fast jumping and electric turn of foot can prove too much for his rivals.

Coral Cup Tip - Dame De Compagnie
DAME DE COMPAGNIE began her season with fifth in the Greatwood Hurdle. Upped in trip and against her own sex next time, also at Cheltenham, she scythed through the field to see off Indefatigable by four lengths. Although 10lb higher here, she is still unexposed and has more to offer.

Cheltenham Festival - ITV7 Tips

The ITV7 competition is back for the Cheltenham Festival and will roll over each day if the jackpot is not won. The Racing Post experts make their selections for the competition.

Race 1 - 1.30 Cheltenham


The unbeaten run of Envoi Allen could be ended by The Big Breakaway, who has been so impressive in his two hurdle wins.

Race 2 - 2.10 Cheltenham


This looks an ideal scenario for Minella Indo. Copperhead may prove the biggest threat if this becomes a thorough test.

Race 3 - 2.25 Huntingdon


The tentative suggestion is Agent Valdez, who had some fair bumper form and makes her handicap debut with a first-time tongue-tie tried, following wind surgery.

Race 4 - 2.50 Cheltenham


The five-year-old Alfa Mix brings conspicuous potential along with solid achievement from two handicaps. He gets the vote ahead of Champagne Well.

Race 5 - 3.05 Huntingdon


A weak handicap hurdle that can go to topweight Emma Lamb, who took a step in the right direction when second at Taunton last time and has the valuable assistance of Bryony Frost.

Race 6 - 3.30 Cheltenham


Chacun Pour Soi got the better of Defi Du Seuil at Punchestown last spring but the latter is taken to gain revenge.

Race 7 - 4.10 Cheltenham


Dual Grand National hero Tiger Roll can win this for the third consecutive year and post a remarkable fifth Cheltenham Festival victory.
