Day two of the Cheltenham Festival will kick off in less than an hour and the betting for all seven races on Ladies' Day is really hotting up!

Here are five horses who've made significant morning market moves in the Cheltenham Festival day two betting...

Cheltenham Day Two Market Movers

1:30pm Ballymore Novices' Hurdle - Hermes Allen

Having drifted out to as far as 5/1 yesterday, HERMES ALLEN has been backed back into 5/2 during the course of the morning. Paul Nicholls' star is unbeaten in three starts over hurdles and punters fancy he'll become the first Challow Hurdle winner to follow up at Cheltenham.

2:10pm Brown Advisory Novices' Chase - Sir Gerhard

A winner at the last two Cheltenham Festivals, SIR GERHARD has been heavily backed against Gerri Colombe in this Grade One. Willie Mullins' star has only had one previous chase start in a two-mile novice contest, but that hasn't put punters off from backing Sir Gerhard to win this three-miler.

2:50pm Coral Cup - Sa Fureur

A wave of support has arrived for SA FUREUR this morning. Gordon Elliott's novice has won all of his last three starts over hurdles and Davy Russell's mount has been cut from 20s right into 10/1.

3:30pm Champion Chase - Energumene

As Edwardstone drifts back to 7/4, ENERGUMENE has been cut into 11/8 favouritism for the Queen Mother Champion Chase. Willie Mullins' star bolted up on soft ground 12 months ago and Paul Townend's mount is being back to successfully defend his crown.

4:50pm Grand Annual - Dinoblue

Another Willie Mullins runner who's being heavily supported is Grand Annual favourite DINOBLUE. Mullins' mare was well-beaten in the Mares' Novices' Hurdle last year and has only won one of her four starts over fences, but that isn't enough to dissuade punters that Dinoblue is a good thing in this handicap.
