Horse racing bets today: Friday at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival – Day 4 tips

Have a read to find our most confident picks of the day, as well as race-by-race selections for every race across the Cheltenham Festival meeting’s today!

NAP – PIED PIPER @ 3/1 with BetUK – 1.30 Cheltenham

We have gone for the Gordon Elliott trained Pied Piper as out NAP for the opening race on what is the final day at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival.

Beat current favourite, Vauban, on his hurdling debut in December at Punchestown over a similar distance. That day, he faced a challenge at the last jump but kept on and responded well when ridden out for the final furlong.

His second win over hurdles came around the Cheltenham racecourse in January, where he settled far better and eventually won by 9 lengths in a race he was on the bridle for the whole duration. If he runs like he did last time, there is no reason why he shouldn’t beat Vauban for the second time. Our big fancy on Day 4 of the Festival and a brilliantly priced NAP at 3/1 with BetUK.

NEXT BEST – HILLCREST @ 10/3 with BetUK2.50 Cheltenham

In the Albert Barlett Novices’ Hurdle we have sided with Hillcrest as our Next Best bet of the afternoon here on Day 4 of the Cheltenham Festival.

He is unbeaten in all of his completed hurdle races, and looks to have all the attributes needed to go well in this race. Won by 20 lengths on just his second hurdling run, and followed that up in January this year with a win in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle Qualifier, beating I Am Maximus by two lengths.

Has won on all types of ground, so whatever the weather does and whether the ground is goo to soft, soft or heavy, Hillcrest has the ability to run on them all. Richard Patrick takes to the saddle for Henry Daly looking to make it a English win in the Albert Bartlett.
