John Hunt vs. Charlie Poste Cheltenham Festival 2021

John Hunt roared back in style on Wednesday afternoon with four correct selections in his battle with fellow BBC 5 Live commentator, Charlie Poste.

Poste took a 20-point lead after the first day of the Cheltenham Festival after his winning NAP Shishkin made no mistake in the Arkle, and Appreciate It and Honeysuckle recorded wins.

Hunt was unable to muster a correct prediction on the opening day but got right back in the contest after successes for Bob Olinger, Monkfish, Tiger Roll and Sir Gerhard this afternoon.

At the half-way point, Poste leads 35-20 after two NAPs roared home.

Here’s their selections for day three:
