One of the living legends of the sport and certainly one of the greatest jockeys of all time, Ruby Walsh is an expert when it comes to the Cheltenham Festival. On a recent blog for Paddy Power, Walsh gave his five best tips for next week’s Festival and if they all win, it will yield enormous returns. Get Cheltenham Free Bets on the website and view our free horse racing tips. Let’s take a look at his five horses below using his word for word quotes.

Facile Vega – Supreme Novices’ Hurdle

“High Definition should make the running in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. He and Facile Vega took each other on much too early at the Dublin Racing Festival. When High Definition unseated his rider at the fourth it didn’t help Facile Vega at all, as he was already in full flight but faded to finish fifth. Facile Vega will have learned from that and won’t get into an early battle at Cheltenham. It was his first defeat on the racetrack and I’m not going to oppose Facile Vega now.”

Impaire Et Passe – Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle

“The Paul Nicholls’ trained Hermes Allen has rock-solid form and heads the Ballymore market but I think the Irish challenge is strong. I’m a fan of Impaire Et Passe. He was really good when winning over two miles at Punchestown and I’ve no doubts about his stamina stepping up in trip.”

Home By The Lee – Stayer’s Hurdle

“If the ground stays good then Home By The Lee has done nothing wrong all season. He was sixth in this race last year but has won at Navan and Leopardstown and improved this term as they are riding him differently and it’s working.”

Colonel Mustard – County Hurdle

“Colonel Mustard was third in the County Hurdle last year but can improve a couple of places and get into the winner’s enclosure this time. He’s back over fences after chasing didn’t work out and finished second at Kelso last weekend which was a good confidence booster.”

Galopin Des Champs – Gold Cup

“If I were still riding, I would be all over Galopin Des Champs all day every day. I don’t think stamina is an issue as all the indicators is that he will stay the 3m 2f trip. This race looks tailor-made for him. Bravemansgame and Noble Yeats can fill the places.”
