2021 Cheltenham Festival Day 2 Preview

Cheltenham day 2 tips & preview

You’re reading the Horsebetting.com guide to Ladies Day at the Cheltenham Festival. With Cheltenham day 2 tips and analysis, our overview looks at the main action during the biggest jumps horse racing meeting of the season.

In the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle which opens proceedings at 1:25, three horses in particular are in with big chances. Each has won a Grade 1 before. BOB OLINGER has only found last season’s Champion Bumper winner Ferny Hollow too good for him over obstacles and since progressed to win both subsequent starts.

Bravemansgame made similar improvement throughout the campaign for Paul Nicholls. He took the Challow at Newbury in really taking style. Willie Mullins trained Gaillard Du Mesnil comes into the Ballymore off the back of success at the Dublin Racing Festival. Any would be a worthy winner, but Bob Olinger may just prove the best of these.

Next, in the Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase at 1:55, MONKFISH has been flawless over fences and won last year’s Albert Bartlett at this meeting. He can be considered a banker for Mullins, with the biggest dangers being Eklat De Rire and Sporting John, who won the Scilly Isles by staying.

Champion Chase could be about more than Chacun Pour Soi

Last year’s Queen Mother Champion Chase was supposed to be all about Altior against Chacun Pour Soi. Neither made it to Cheltenham then, and only the latter does now. Chacun Pour Soi is a hot favourite in the feature race of Ladies Day at 3:05. Our Cheltenham day 2 tips suggest it could pay to look beyond him, however.

This is because Chacun Pour Soi has no course experience, and all of his impressive successes have come at Leopardstown. PUT THE KETTLE ON is three from three around Cheltenham and looks a great each-way alternative. Nube Negra for the Dan Skelton stable could have a say in the finish as well after beating Altior at Kempton in the Desert Orchid Chase.

Beloved Cheltenham veteran Tiger Roll may run for the last time in the Cross Country Chase at 3:40. Young French raider Easysland was too good for him last year in this, however. Instead, the value could lie elsewhere again.

Some Neck showed superb stamina to get up and win a handicap over course and distance in the autumn. He has each-way claims, but a fascinating recruit to this discipline is ALPHA DES OBEAUX. The way he ran over the Grand National fences in the 2019 Becher Chase at Aintree off top-weight suggests that he could relish Cross Country.

Mulins has strong hand for Champion Bumper

Finally, in the Champion Bumper which rounds off Ladies Day at 4:50, KILCRUIT could not have been more impressive than when slamming his rivals at the Dublin Racing Festvial. The way in which he cruised clear of a good field at Leopardstown was really impressive.

Mullins now also trains Sir Gerhard, who swerved that meeting. His change of stables is not ideal preparation. The yard also has improving mare Grangee, Ramilles and Cool Jet among a strong string.

In opposition is Three Stripe Life, but he looks very inexperienced for the rigours of this. New trainer Denise Foster takes him to the Festival off the back of just one run, and that’s a huge ask as he may not handle the occasion. It’s hard seeing any British contenders landing a blow on the Irish here.

Our Cheltenham day 2 tips don’t include selections for the ultra-competitive Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle and Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Handicap Chase. These races are notoriously difficult to find the winner in, so stick with the championship contests with your wagering instead.
