Yesterday was fun, shall we do it all again today? Go on then.
The second day of the Cheltenham Festival rolls into view and we’ve got another Lucky 15 for you to follow today – all of whom are massive each-way prices, so we’d recommend ticking the each way box on your bet slip.
Before we begin, though, make sure you get a betting account – we’re on board with Bet365 & Paddy Power, who offer Douvan at 6/1 to win the Champion Chase. Pick that price up if you don’t have an account

Worth noting, if all four win then we’d be looking at a return of £40,000 with Bet365 – here’s hoping.
BARCARDYS 7/2 – 1:30 Cheltenham
I’m backing BACARDYS to get Ruby Walsh and Willie Mullins off to their first Cheltenham Festival win of 2017.
This horse can run and jump all day and has ample stamina and Cheltenham form – I think he can run down Neon Wolf in the finish with Ruby Walsh on board.
ROYAL VACATION 10/1 – 2:10 Cheltenham
This has all the hallmarks of being one of the best each-way bets of the entire meeting.
Here we have a Grade One winner that has also won a handicap in rampant fashion at Cheltenham but is trading at a double figure price in a race that has more holes in than Wentworth.
I’m fully expecting him to turn around the form with Might Bite from Kempton as the favourite just doesn’t look a horse that relishes Cheltenham. Best bet of the day this one.
PEREGRINE RUN 10/1 CORAL CUP – 2:50 Cheltenham
I’m willing to swerve Tombstone at the top of the betting and looking for more value.
Peregrine Run Offers each way value and is crying out out to be backed off a mark of 142, with his strong piece of Cheltenham form and the ground in his favour, he looks like giving us a run for our money at a double figure price.
SIR VALENTINO (without Douvan) 6/1 – 3:30 Cheltenham
This looks a race where Douvan will romp home but the betting without does have an each way angle worth considering.
Sir Valentino is a different animal when the ground is good and should be able to keep tabs on the front-runners if he jumping holds up. The race in behind Douvan should be an exciting one and the selection looks overpriced at 6/1.
