With just over three weeks to go until the Cheltenham Festival, punters are beginning to make their selections for the big races.

The Cheltenham.co.uk team have put their neck on the line, as they produce their four ‘bankers’ for the four-day event in March.

Here is the ‘Favourite Fourfold’ for the 2022 Cheltenham Festival.

Honeysuckle – Champion Hurdle (4/6 – Coral + Ladbrokes)

Rachael Blackmore onboard Honeysuckle celebrates after victory in the Unibet Champion Hurdle Challenge Trophy (Grade 1) during day one of the Cheltenham Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse. Picture date: Tuesday March 16, 2021.

Henry De Bromhead’s supermare is still yet to be beaten under rules and she could well land a third straight Cheltenham Festival victory here.

Appreciate It looks like the only real challenge to her Champion Hurdle throne here, so she should claim success in this contest.

Shishkin – Champion Chase (8/11 – Betfair + PP)

Shishkin

Shishkin has proven to be a unit over fences and he is aiming for his third straight Festival victory under Nicky Henderson, this time in the Champion Chase.

The eight-year-old’s stamina and speed are unmatched in his division and he should well get the better of his rivals here.

Bob Olinger – Turners’ Novices Chase (EVS – Coral + Ladbrokes)

Another runner that has adapted to life well over the larger obstacles is Bob Olinger, who features in the Turners’ Novice Chase on the Thursday.

Henry De Bromhead’s recruit has cruised to success on his two starts over fences and he will likely add another Festival win to his record here.

Concertista – Mares’ Chase (5/2 – Various)

Concertista ridden by Daryl Jacob on his way to winning the the Daylesford Mares? Novices? Hurdle during day three of the Cheltenham Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse.

After suffering a heart-breaking loss to Black Tears in the Mares’ Hurdle last year, Concertista should be able to bounce back when she runs in the Chase equivalent of the race on the Friday.

Willie Mullins’ recruit has shown promise over fences in her two chase starts so far and she should be able to claim a second Festival victory.
