CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL DAY 4 | Three Value Picks to consider

The team have made three nicely-priced selections for the third day of the Cheltenham Festival

The final day of the Cheltenham Festival is upon us, with the Gold Cup featuring on the closing day of the famous Jumps meeting.

Seven races are scheduled across the day with the Triumph Hurdle kicking things off at 1:30 and concludes with the Martin Pipe at 5.30.

The team have taken a look through the card, in hope of finding some value across the contests.

Here are the three value picks for the fourth and final day of the Cheltenham Festival.

PROTEKTORAT– 3:30 CHELTENHAM (8/1)

Dan Skelton holds an interesting contender in the Gold Cup, in the form of dual Graded winner Protektorat.

The gelding burst onto the scene last April after a convincing win in the Grade 1 Manifesto Novices’ Chase, and he has backed that form up with second in the Paddy Power Gold Cup and a thumping 25 length victory in the Many Clouds Chase at Aintree.

He returns fresh for this contest following a three-month break and clearly has the potential to be an exciting stayer, with his price of 8/1 holding some interest here.

BOB AND CO – 4:10 CHELTENHAM (11/2)

Bob And Co returns to Cheltenham for another crack at the Foxhunters Chase, with his connections preparing all season for this contest.

The gelding unseated his rider in last year’s renewal but he has been effective in the last 12 months, winning two of his four starts in that time.

The 11-year-old got the better of favourite Billaway over in Ireland back in April and holds some value at 11/2.

THE GOFFER – 5:30 CHELTENHAM (12/1)

An improving novice under the guidance of Gordon Elliott, The Goffer could well be an interesting contender in the Martin Pipe.

The five-year-old has won two of his three starts over the 2m4f distance and he claimed his first Graded success last month at Thurles.

The gelding could well have more in the locker and if the ground remains soft, he potentially could hint at each-way value at 12/1.
