Five bankers for the 2018 Cheltenham Festival

Un De Sceaux

There are five horses running at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival which could be described as banker material

There’s nothing quite like the Cheltenham Festival. It’s so damn exciting over those four days where you enjoy top-class racing including the Champions League, Queen Mother Champion Chase and Gold Cup.

Right now, everyone is searching for winning tips ahead of the 2018 Cheltenham Festival. While there’s no such thing as a dead cert, we’ve made a list of five horses that have a brilliant chance of winning their respective races.

This accumulator pays a massive 16/1 with bet365 and so you can put a cheeky tenner on and win £160 should all of the below win their respective races.

Buveur D’Air to win Champion Hurdle (DAY ONE)

Not a fantastic renewal of the Champion Hurdle this time around, with last year’s winner Buveur D’Air looking as though he’ll win the race easily.

Willie Mullins is hopeful rather than confident that Faugheen can return to his best and it might be that Nicky Henderson has the 1-2 in this race considering that My Tent Or Yours is in good nick and has previously demonstrated his class in this race.

Apples Jade to win Mares’ Hurdle (DAY ONE)
Apples Jade produced the goods to defeat Vroum Vroum Mag and Limini last year in a brilliant battle up the hill, with the Gordon Elliott-trained charge back to defend her crown.

Those two Mullins horses won’t be in attendance this time around and it doesn’t appear as though anything can stop this talented mare from dominating again.

Samcro to win the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle (DAY TWO)
The bookies aren’t looking forward to the first race on Wednesday, with Samcro set to be a warm order to claim victory in the Ballymore.

It has been thought that the Gigginstown charge might be aimed at the Supreme Novices’ although it now appears that Gordon Elliott will prime the horse at this race instead and it’s likely to win doing handstands.

Un De Sceaux to win the Ryanair Chase (DAY THREE)
UDS is a formidable animal around Cheltenham and he was the subject of a massive gamble last week which has seen the horse’s odds tumble from 3/1 to 6/4.

With Ruby Walsh on board and the ground likely come up soft, we’re expecting Un De Sceaux to put in a winning performance and some might say it’s the bet of the meeting at the odds available.

Laurina to win the Mares’ Novices Hurdle (DAY THREE)
The final banker comes in the form of Laurina and perhaps she’s the most nailed-on of the lot, with experts predicting a big surge of support for a mare with a whole heap of class and likely to coast home.

Ruby Walsh will be on board once again and Maria’s Benefit might be the only runner that gets close to this Willie Mullins-trained good thing.

Buveur D’Air, Apples Jade, Samcro, Un De Sceaux and Laurina to win @ 16/1 with bet365
