Each-way tips for the Arkle, Gold Cup and more!

Cheltenham Festival is approaching and the Trials Day and Dublin Racing Festival helped gauge potentials as an each-way chance.

Non Runner No Bet (NRNB) is now available on all races with talkSPORT BET which will come in handy for these outsiders in the betting with multiple festival entries.

With plenty of betting options open for the biggest week in horse racing there’s also big prices and value to be had.

In previous years some of these races looked set before March but now, there’s open contests throughout with big odds often available for some races.

Last year there were huge priced winners including some tipped here, Third Wind tipped at 28/1, Global Citizen at 40/1 and many more profitable each-way places.

With the Dublin Racing Festival at the weekend mounting a few surprises – as a result prices have considerably drifted on what would have been big odds-on favourites.

Cheltenham Festival outside racing tips

Supreme Novices’ Hurdle

Tahmuras 10/1

This Paul Nicholls-trained horse has real potential and after the Dublin Racing Festival the market has really opened up for this Cheltenham Festival opener.

It showed that Facile Vega absolutely can be beaten, but it’s worth not getting too carried away in ruling him out completely, as there was clearly something not quite right as he tailed back.

And that means there’s value to be had each-way in the Supreme again with the real possibility of an outsider coming in at double digit odds.

Tahmuras is a promising gelding in the colours of the Noel Fehily Racing Syndicate, who has gone unbeaten over hurdles impressively.

He won his Class 1 hurdle by over five lengths in November and in January stepped up to the Grade 1 Tolworth and made all.

He will certainly need more to win this and it’s difficult to know just yet how good his winning form is in comparison to the rest of the field, but he certainly has the potential.

Arkle Challenge Trophy

Saint Roi 9/1

Saint Roi goes well on varying ground and at this stage that could be beneficial with rain expected across the week leading up to the festival and beyond.

This JP McManus-owned horse won by just over two lengths on Boxing Day at Leopardstown in the Grade 1 Novice Chase.

His follow up to that at the Dublin Racing Festival was a tricky one, and while being held up at the back of the pack unseated his rider after stumbling.

Eventually El Fabiolo went on to win and is favourite for this one.

But it wouldn’t be a shock to see this horse finish up top again on just his fourth start over fences.

His past form is decent too despite not winning many as the majority of those came at the top level, but was always up against Honeysuckle and Epatante.

Turners Novices’ Chase

Stage Star tipped at 16/1

The Cheltenham Trials were a big eye opener to the potential of this Paul Nicholls-trained horse.

He beat the field of 11 quite comfortably over the same distance as this race but also holds an entry to the Browns Advisory (3m).

Nicholls is keen to keep his options open but the seven-year-old hasn’t tackled that distance before and it will be a big roll of the dice to opt for the step up in trip.

But at this price, 16/1, Stage Star is more than worth an each-way backing at this early stage with the prize money of £98,473 on offer for this Grade 1 Novices’ Chase.

Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle

Maximilian 25/1

One of just a few Owners Group-owned horses that have entries into the Cheltenham Festival and that also have a great each-way chance.

Trained by Donald McCain and will likely be ridden by Brian Hughes, who has been adding to his tally of wins continuously.

Maximilian had a wind surgery in December 2022 and won on his first appearance since at Doncaster in the Albert Bartlett River Don Hurdle (Grade 2).

There’s clear chance for further improvement and that was just his fourth hurdle race and his second graded, which means there’s got to be more to come from this seven-year-old.

Gold Cup Chase

Hewick 25/1

Hewick has a big chance to continue his list of awards and big wins.

Galopin Des Champs is of course the big favourite and for good reason but there’s always a chance of an outsider, or at least a placer.

He’s run over fences just nine times in his career and taken four wins including the Galway Plate, the bet365 Gold Cup and the US Grand National.

He has form over 3m5f and should be good to take on 3m as he was close at Listowel in September over the same distance but fell close to the last fence.

This looks more promising than his other entry in the Stayers Hurdle as chasing seems to bring out much more of his ability.
