Horse racing bets & tips today: Wednesday at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival – Day 2

NAP – SIR GERHARD @ 8/11 with BetUK – 1.30 Cheltenham
He won the 2021 Champion Bumper at last year’s Festival and has impressed on both hurdle starts to date. The latter of these was a Grade 1 at Leopardstown in February when he beat Three Stripe Life with relative ease.
Sir Gerhard is two from two over the hurdles, and is rightfully a heavy favourite for tomorrow’s opener in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle.
Paul Townend takes to the saddle for Willie Mullins on this impressive 7-year-old novice, which is a good sign as the horse and rider pain have won numerous times together before. Should take the victory.
NEXT BEST – TIGER ROLL @ 6/4 with BetUK – 4.10 Cheltenham
We couldn’t back against the one and only Tiger Roll. This could end up being his last race, and is sure to be his last Cheltenham Festival in what has been a long and extremely successful career.
He had won this race on three previous occassions and we think he has every chance of making it a fourth on Wednesday afternoon. Davy Russell takes the reigns for Gordon Elliott, and what a successful pair they have been over the years.
If at his best, this extraordinary 12-year-old should have far too much for the rest of the pack. Still a decent price at a backable 6/4 with BetUK.
