We've enjoyed a cracking first couple of days at the Cheltenham Festival, tipping seven winners and five each-way placers across Tuesday and Wednesday!
Wins for Galvin and Bob Olinger, along with a winner on Monday, mean we've now landed three NAPs in a row. It's to the Stayers' Hurdle where we look for our best bet on Thursday. Here's how you can back him and get your hands on some free bets!

Paisley Park is a fearsome rival, I just don't think Cheltenham is his kind of track, and he could be vulnerable after a hard race at Ascot last time out. SIRE DU BERLAIS was my selection at the beginning of the season and, to me, he still looks the most likely winner.
Last year’s Pertemps Final was run in a time three seconds quicker than the Stayers' Hurdle. What's more, Sire Du Berlais was six seconds faster from the second-last to the line than Lisnagar Oscar, despite carrying an extra two pounds on his back.
Denise Foster’s runner won the Lismullen Hurdle on his reappearance. Sire Du Berlais was then well-below par at Leopardstown over Christmas, but it’s not the first time he’s thrown in a stinker around that track. Mark Walsh’s mount is proven over the course-and-distance, he comes alive during the spring, and this doesn’t look the strongest Stayers’ Hurdle now Thyme Hill isn’t running. I think he has a massive chance.
