Cheltenham Day 3 predictions

In the first it looks too difficult to call. Exmoor Ranger is my tip from the homegrowns, but the Irish raiders will probably have a stranglehold on the race.

The second is another lottery but J P McManus should probably win it with one of hs four. I'd go for the favourite - Don't Push It - although there has been a strong tip for Buena Vista.

In the Ryanair Chase Voy Por Ustedes is going to hack up having sidestepped the return against Master Minded yesterday. It won't be much of a price, but it will win.

In the World Hurdle there are only two in it for me - unfortunately they are the top two in the market. Kasbah Bliss came up against the superb Inglis Drever and his mad maid last year and was the best horse not to win at the festival. Since then he has made great strides and so will start close to odds on. If you fancy some value then Punchestowns is worth a nibble.

In the fifth Notable D'estruval could well triumph for the Irish.

In the last it may well be Poker de Sivola for most people but I'm going to have a little on Alexander the Great. Not because of the name you understand. Oh no.

Overall it'll be a light day. It's too tempting to lump on to Kasbah Bliss and Voy por Ustedes but Cheltenham should be about fun and watching the best racing in the world.
