Tom Stanley summarises the Cheltenham Day 3 tips from our podcast team. 

Well, Wednesday was wet! Some surprises too but unsurprisingly it was Willie Mullins who enjoyed a monster day and sets the tone for the week.

Thursday is probably the most open day so far (bar the Ryanair) and we’re due a big-priced handicap winner so hopefully, we’ve found one below.

Turners Novices Chase

  • Donn – Bob Olinger
  • Tom – Galopin Des Champs
  • Deasy – No bet


  • Donn – Winter Fog
  • Tom – Tullybeg / Third Wind
  • Deasy – Dunboyne, Third Wind, Tulleybeg

Ryanair Chase

  • Donn – Eldorado Allen
  • Tom – Allaho
  • Deasy – Janidil (w/o fav) and Place Only

  • Tom – Paisley Park
  • Deasy – Klassical Dream, Royal Kahala

Bet Now

  • Tom – No bet
  • Deasy – Dinoblue

Kim Muir

  • Donn – Frontal Assault
  • Tom – Glenloe
  • Deasy – Rightplacerighttime (win/place)

Best Lays

My angle here is Champ won’t like the testing ground and Deasy is place laying last year’s winner in the same race…

  • Donn – Lay Galopin Des Champs
  • Tom – Place lay Champ
  • Deasy – Place lay Flooring Porter

Best Bet

Dan has been all out Sire Du Berlais for a while now. I like Glenloe in the same colours in the Kim Muir, hoping this stamina test brings out the best in him. Deasy is feeling brave with Klassical Dream after his defeat last time and Donn is with Frontal Assault.

  • Dan – Sire Du Berlais (Pertemps)
  • Donn – Frontal Assault (Kim Muir)
  • Tom – Glenloe (Kim Muir)
  • Deasy – Klassical Dream (Stayers)
