Cheltenham Tips – Day 3

**These are my tips for 2008. Please view the 2009 Cheltenham Festival tips here**

So thanks to the windy weather on Wednesday we have a bumper card at Cheltenham for Day 3 with ten – that’s right, count them – 10 races. The bookies reckon that they’ll take �300 million on Cheltenham Day Three bets alone. If you back any of these old nags, they’ll probably get to keep it too ;)

Peter O’Sullevan National Hunt Chase – Beantown 15/2
Royal & SunAlliance Chase – Silverburn 6/1
Jewson Novices Handicap Chase – The Hairy Lemon 25/1
Queen Mother Champion Chase – Master Minded 11/4
Ryanair Chase – The Listener 7/2
Ladbrokes World Hurdle – My Way De Solzen 8/1
Racing Post Plate – Il Duce 14/1
Pertemps Final Handicap Hurdle – Miko De Beauchene 15/2
Kim Muir Handicap Chase – Jaunty Times 25/1
Weatherbys Champions Bumper – Apt Approach 4/1

As you can see, I’ve stuck with my original selections from Wednesday for the rescheduled races. To be honest I was fancying a little each way dart on Ice Tea in the first race but stuck with my guns. Still looking quite interesting at 18/1 with Totesport.

Nudge And Nurdle in the 1.40pm. Sitting at 25/1 with Totesport at the moment. Likely to find itself a wee bit out of it’s depth.
Big Rob in the 4.05pm. This is one for the guys at King Cricket. There’s more chance of Rob Key winning this race…
Drive On Regardless in the 5.50pm. Another tenuous link but it’s sound advice if you play and miss outside off stump. Might be worth an each way look if it pisses down with rain overnight.

    WHAT? You’re not backing Big Rob?

    What’s the matter with you? You haven’t gone Australian, have you?

    Are we six minutes too late reading this or are we six minutes too late?

    About the the only thing I was right about was that Big Rob wasn’t worth backing as it didn’t even finish the race…

    I think I’ll go back to talking crap about cricket. At least I can get that right.
