Get essential betting advice for day three of the Cheltenham Festival with three value horse racing tips from the trading floor at VBET:


1.55 Cheltenham – SPIRITOFTHEGAMES


Odds: 16/1

Versatile over fences and hurdles and loves it here. Held several Festival entries but this looks the ideal race for him.

A brisk three miles should be just the ticket and yet he’s only gone up 2lb following an eyecatching second in a qualifier for this at Chepstow last time. Rock-solid each-way chance.

3.40 Cheltenham – MISTER WHITAKER


Odds: 14/1

Not fired in two starts this season, but this has surely been the plan all year.

He especially likes it at Cheltenham and finished a staying-on third in this 12 months ago – beaten just three lengths of a 2lb higher mark. With the ground drying up nicely, he must have every chance of troubling the judge.

4.50 Cheltenham – HOLD THE NOTE


Odds: 7/1


Well found out in the market, but that is hardly surprising after he ran so well at Newbury on his first outing of the year.

Yet to win over fences, but he’s clearly progressing nicely – with a wind operating having seemingly done his job.

Everything he has done thus far points towards this longer trip of three and a quarter miles set to take him to the next level in his chasing career. He’s a massive player.
