Cheltenham Festival Day 2 Tips by Ruby Walsh

All tips by Paddy’s power

1.30pm – Ballymore Novices Hurdle (Ruby Walsh)

Hint: Odd And Pass

“I would be with weird and fit – he was very good at the hurdles at Naas before Christmas, he was good at the Moscow Flyer where he dropped down to two miles.

14.10 – Brown Advisory Rookie Chase (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Gerri Colombe

“I would be with Gerry Colombe.

“The race will set for him – A real bully it will go forward, as I said, so it will Galia Des Liteauxbut he is Gerry Colombe solid sweater.

“He looks like a horse that screams for three miles and I think he’s the right favorite.”

14.50 – Coral Cup Hurdle (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Captain Conby both ways

“I thought I pulled one out of the fire when I was going through them this morning and was with it Captain Conby also.

“I was passing and Captain Conby in the last run behind San Salvador. Icare Allen I did too badly at Newbury and Scaramanga I want quick ground. A tax for Max is hard to imagine.”

15.30 – Chasing the Champion (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Edwardstone

“I don’t like fighting Willie Mullins’ horse, but I am and I’m going against Huge man and the more rain, the greater the chance [Edwardstone] hHow.

Edwardstone it seems to cope with soft ground. Of the two since 12 months ago, Edwardstone looks like the one that got better or maybe just kept in shape and Huge man has regressed.”

16.10 – Cross Country Chase (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Delta Work. Franco De Port also one way

“[Keith Donoghue booked on Delta Work] When you think about it, it’s not such a big shock.

“The success he has had Tiger roll [previously] and I think Working in the Delta is the one, especially after the rain that has fallen. That’s what made him stronger last year [Delta Work’s] chance was really soft ground.

“He [Delta Work] he won his first time last year but he needs to be a better horse and with these heats I think he will be hard to beat again.

Franco De Port it has a big price, it will still be 8/1, it is a one way price anyway, but Working in the Delta will win.”

17.30 – Champion Bumper (Ruby Walsh)

Hint: a fact to submit

“The earth, age, endurance and things like that influenced the decision to let Patrick Mullins ride A fact to be submitted.

A dream to share he is your favorite, he beat A fact to be submitted in Leopardstown. It was a slow race, but I think it will be a completely different competition.

“I would be of the opinion that the others are winning this race over fast horses and I can see it A fact to be submitted changing it with A dream to share.

“Patrick Mullins could have been right and I would have been with him A fact to be submitted“.

Meanwhile, PA race reporter Anita Chambers adds her own picks for Day 2:
