Pick of Thursday’s Races

The opening day of the festival has some cracking options for punters. The first big race is the Turners Novices Chase at 13:30.

Expect an epic battle between Bob Olinger from Henry De Bromhead with Rachael Blackmore on board and Galopin Des Champs from Willie Mullins with Paul Townend on board.

The Ryanair Chase (14:50) is another race that looks like it will be a cracker. Allaho is the odds on favourite from Willie Mullins but he will have the likes of Conflated, Eldorado Allen and Janidil breathing down his neck.

The Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle (15:30) is the feature race of the day. This Grade 1 one event looks set to have 10 runners with Thyme Hill from Philip Hobbs looking likely to go as the favourite.

But anything can happen at Cheltenham with Flooring Porter, Klassical Dream and Champ all set to give him a run for his money.
