Expert Cheltenham Tips 2014 for Day One of the Festival

Paul Nicholls has been talking to Betfair about his horses going to the Cheltenham Festival and from what he has said we have found some expert Cheltenham tips.

Nicholls has done four videos, one for each day of the Festival and we will run through the main talking points of each video so you can decide where you will be placing your money on the Cheltenham Festival.

The first video talks about his selections for Tuesday 11th March and the first horse he looked at was Irving (5/2 William Hill) in the Spureme Novices Hurdle. Nicholls said Irving needs to sharpen up his jumping but will be suited to the expected good ground, he has a massive chance, especially given the speed the horse possesses.

Next up it was Dodging Bullets (6/1 Bet365) who will run in Tuesday’s second race, the Arkle. He won his first three Novice Chases before a good effort at Newbury where the ground may have been too soft, the faster they go the better for this horse and he is our Arkle betting tip.

Pitt Zig is a horse that Paul Nicholls sounds keen on for next season and he may go to the Champion Hurdle in search of some prize money. He won a Grade One in France before finishing second in the Ladbrokes.

Analysing the video going in search of some Cheltenham betting tips it sounds as if Nicholls is keen on the chances of both Irving in the Supreme Novices Hurdle and Dodging Bullets in the Arkle, however his slight reservations over Irving make us confident in our long term ante-post Cheltenham tip Vatour for that race.

Dodging Bullets is a horse we are keen to keep on-side here at so Nicholls’ bullish words are a confidence booster.
