tips about heaven bet

13:30 – JCB Triumph Hurdle: Lossiemouth (Alex Hammond, 7/4)

Alexander Hammond: “[On Lossiemouth] Didn’t have the best run in the first defeat at the DRF and can fight back here.”

14:50 – Albert Bartlett Novice Corral (registered as The Spa Novice Corral): stay away fay (ed. Chamberlin, 20/1)

Ed Chamberlin: “[On Stay Away Fay] Stay all day!”

15:30 – Boodle’s Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase: Gallopin des Champs (Oli Bell, 2/1), steward (ed. Chamberlin, 11/1), Noble Yeats (Alex Hammond, 9/1)

Oliver Bell: “[On Galopin Des Champs] Freaked last year and won well last time, I have no doubts about the trip and think the class will win.”

Ed Chamberlin: “[On Stattler] Not as flashy as Galopin Des Champs but a grinder worthy of the Gold Cup test.”

Alexander Hammond: “[On Noble Yeats] state winner. Gone from strength to strength. I’ve tried to add weight to the rivals in the Cotswold and I can finish in the places.”

16:10 – St. James’s Place Festival Challenge Cup Open Hunter Hunt: Chris’ dream (Alex Hammond, 8/1)

Alexander Hammond: “[On Chris’s Dream] Resuscitated by two runs/wins on points and great back shape so should do well here.”

16:50 – Mrs. Paddy Power Mare Hunt: Allegory of Vassy (Alex Hammond, 3/2)

Alexander Hammond: “[On Allegorie De Vassy] Unbeaten since joining Willie Mulllins and plenty more to come over fences.”

Ruby Walsh’s tips for Day 4

tips about Paddy power

1.30pm – JCB Triumph Hurdle: destiny of blood

“When there’s heavy going on, it fits destiny of blood because then it will be an endurance race.

“I don’t see the pace in this race to make it a grind, but when the ground gets really tough and the track makes it a grind, it definitely goes in Blood Destiny favor”

14:10 – County Hurdle: ballydam

“If I wanted to get a tip, I’d be there ballydam. I thought he ran well behind Gaelic Warrior and at 25/1 he’s probably overpriced.”

14.50 – Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle: Corbetts cross

“I’m at Corbett’s Cross. He’s longer than Brag with three cards im betting now what i really like. He’s a potential superstar and I’m with him.

Brag with three cards did nothing wrong. Sandor Clegane followed well Gutland at Leopardstown though Gutland flopped at the Ballymore.”

“I was at Corbetts cross from the start and I will not turn my back on him. Whether he wins the Albert Bartlett or not, he will eventually be a Gold Cup horse.”

15.30 – Gold Cup: Gallopin des Champs

“I’ve always been a Gallopin des Champs Fan and I will not let him down now. I couldn’t win a Gold Cup for Willie Mullins, but Paul Townend could be close to winning a third for him.”

16.10 – Hunters hunt for the Festival Challenge Cup: Vaucet but the value is there Chris’ dream

“I am a Vaucet Fan. Billaway 8/1 is an each way shout Chris’ dream at 10/1 is the value. Vaucet is a big, big runner.”

16.50 – Paddy Power Mare Hunt: Alegorie de Vassy

“There is a concern Alegorie de Vassy jumping properly but she’s been jumping lately so hopefully she’ll do it again on Friday. She is the class horse in the race. If you were going to defy her, you’d have to go big on someone like that Riviere Detel.

“I hope Paul Townend is okay with becoming the lead driver and he has to go out there and make a huge effort. If he does, she [Alegorie De Vassy will win].

17.30 – Martin Pipe Hurdle: Spanish Harlem

Spanish Harlem improved this week, but also Cool Survivor And Introduce. This is a competitive race and one of the beginners will win. I hope it is Spanish Harlem because that would cap off an incredible week for Michael O’Sullivan.

“But at a price spirit of legend. I am in spanish Harlem, but for two-digit values, spirit of legend.”
