Ruby Walsh Cheltenham Tips for Gold Cup Day

It's the final day of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival and former jockey Ruby Walsh has given his tips for Gold Cup Day.

Speaking to Paddy Power, Walsh has picked out tips for all seven races taking place today:

1.30 Triumph Hurdle
"The one I like is the strong-staying A WAVE OF THE SEA each-way".

2.10 County Handicap Hurdle
"Massively competitive but the lightly-raced EMBITTERED is under the radar."

2.50 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle
"RAMSES DE TEILLEE is the type of tough, strong, horse you need to win this."

3.30 Gold Cup
In the Cheltenham Festival feature, Walsh says: "The reigning champion AL BOUM PHOTO will regain his crown."

4.10 Foxhunter Chase
Walsh is big on BILLAWAY in the Foxhunters, noting: "Patrick Mullins could cap a great week with him."

4.50 Grand Annual Chase
"GREANETEEN looks well handicapped for UK trainer Paul Nicholls."

5.30 Martin Pipe Hurdle.
The 'lucky last', and looking ahead to the Conditional Jockeys' Hurdle, Ruby is backing FRONT VIEW.

He says: "Five O'Clock beat Front View at Thurles last time but the Joseph O'Brien-trained runner can reverse the form in the last race of the Festival.
