Okay, so we know your mate’s bombarding the Whatsapp group with Cheltenham tips because his cousin went to school with a lad who used to work for Willie Mullins.
And maybe you’ve even stepped into the world of virtual preview nights, complete with muted experts, a few warm cans while staring at your phone and minus any semblance of the craic you expect at the real thing.
Now, we’re not going to question the value of these efforts to bash the bookies in the biggest week of racing on the planet – do we need to? – but wouldn’t it be better to go straight to the horse’s mouth and get some tips from the shrewdest minds in the sport?
I think we all know the answer.
Well, it’s a damn good thing Paddy thought ahead because he’s put together your one-stop, no-nonsense guide to the top races on each day of the festival.
Honestly, if he wore his underpants outside his trousers you’d think he was Superman.
Or the local oddball.
Either way, the Irish Clark Kent called in favours from some of the biggest brains in the business – Ruby Walsh, Matt Chapman, Mick Fitzgerald, Gina Bryce and Frank Hickey – to put together a guide for you to each of the feature races on all four days of the festival.
Do you fancy taking a leap at the Champion Hurdle? Or getting your skates on for the Queen Mother Champion Chase? Maybe you’ve the stamina for the Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle? Or is it all about the bling of the Cheltenham Gold Cup? Paddy’s got all you need to know in his Cheltenham 2021 Championship Races Cheat Sheet.
