With the rain causing havoc on day two, punters are digging through the cards in hope of finding some soft ground form for the third day of the Cheltenham Festival.

There are another seven races on offer for punters, starting with the Turners’ Novices Chase at 1:30 and concluding with the Kim Muir at 5:30.

The team have taken a look through the card, in hope of finding some nicely-priced selections for Thursday.

Here are the three value picks for the third day of the Cheltenham Festival.


The former king of the staying hurdler division, Paisley Park can regain his Stayers’ Hurdle crown for his connections this afternoon.

Emma Lavelle Cheltenham

Emma Lavelle’s superstar returned to form with a cracking run in the Cleeve Hurdle, getting the better of rivals Champ and Lisnagar Oscar in that contest.

The 10-year-old carries course form on soft ground here and looks capable of outrunning his odds of 8/1 here.


While he may have disappointed in the Albert Bartlett last season, Admiral returns to the Festival to tackle fences this time around in the Craft Irish Whiskey Co. Plate.

Tom Lacey’s return has produced two respectable efforts over the larger obstacles this season, winning in novice company at Haydock in December and February.

The softer condition will be right up his street and he looks well handicapped for this contest, with his price tag of 14/1 holding some appeal.


A Grade 1 winner at a huge price of 22/1? How can we say no?

Statuaire struck in the Royal Bond Novice Hurdle for Willie Mullins back in November before being well beaten in the Tattersalls Ireland Novice Hurdle last month.

She is dropped down in Grade here and she does carry some soft ground form, making her cracking each-way value at 22/1.
