Each and every day we bring you a Lucky 15 using our NAPs table – but as it’s Cheltenham we’re mixing things up a little bit. This week we’ll deliver a Lucky 15 for the Cheltenham Festival 2022 on each day using the best of our prize pundit’s picks from the legendary Cheat Sheet.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Here to hopefully round off the Festival in style, it’s Ruby Walsh, Mick Fitzgerald, Matt Chapman and Frank Hickey’s bets in the spotlight on Friday. A lucky 15 is four horses and 15 bets and we’ve looked for some punts to deliver some winning value on Cheltenham Gold Cup day. Let’s get stuck in.

13:30 Cheltenham – Vauban – (Mick Fitzgerald)

VAUBAN should be unbeaten as he was knocked sideways by Pied Piper on debut at Punchestown but only lost narrowly. Davy Russell has switched to Fil Dor who looks a strong stayer. Vauban to win.

14:50 Cheltenham – Hillcrest (Frank Hickey)

HILLCREST is a really good horse, who has course form, will handle testing ground and has been good on the clock.

15:30 Cheltenham – A Plus Tard (Ruby Walsh)

It should be relatively easy for A PLUS TARD to turn the Leopardstown form around with Galvin. A Plus Tard has more speed and will do me to go one better in the Gold Cup this year.

16:10 Cheltenham – Billaway (Matt Chapman)

BILLAWAY was desperately unlucky to get picked up last year and surely has strong claims to make up for that under Patrick Mullins. Got a confidence boosting win last time at Naas.
