Horse Racing Tips: Paddy Power’s four best bets for Cheltenham on Saturday

Paddy was speaking on the latest edition of our From the Horse's Mouth podcast.



13.50 – Spirit of the Games

I was thinking that Spiritofthegames might get recompense for the last time when he got narrowly pipped here.

Warthog won by a head back in December in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup Handicap Chase.

And I fancy Harry Skelton to get revenge for that near-miss this time.

14.25- Slate House

I’m taking a chance on Slate House here.

He’s a potential improver and one that I think will enjoy the Cheltenham hill.

Slate House has three of his last four since a wind op, the last of which was on Boxing Day at Kempton.

He beat Garo De Juilley in his last Cheltenham win back in October so has proven pedigree here.

15:00 – King Roland

Now, I’ve had a bit of a change of heart on this one!

I was going to say Colin Tizzard’s Harry Senior.

He turned on the pace back in December at Chepstow in an impressive win over second-place Global Fame.

But I’ve been listening to our top tipster Frank Hickey and he’s made me change my mind!

I’m now fully behind Harry Fry’s King Roland, who looks to be going off around the 7/4 mark.

15:35 – Summerville Boy

I really can’t see past Paisley Park as the winner here.

He’s almost unstoppable and comes in on an impressive unbeaten run.

But I think there’s some good each/way value in Summerville Boy.

This is a bit of a step up in trip, but he’s already won at Cheltenham this year after seeing off Roksana on New Year’s Day and I’ll think he’ll appreciate the extra distance here.

So each/way on Summerville Boy.
