(Please be aware selections could become non-runners after article's first publication)


13:30 (Cheltenham) Max Of Stars

Max Of Stars has only missed the frame once from nine hurdle runs boasting four wins and will be a key player in the Ktda Fillies' Juvenile Handicap Hurdle.

Karia Des Blaises is a former French hurdle winner yet to strike since switching to the Willie Mullins yard last November.

No surprise if she fares much better now eased in grade and fitted with a first-time hood.

Majestic Jameela travelled strongly throughout winning by 17 lengths at Uttoxeter twelve days ago and should be on the shortlist along with Spice Rum is two from three since the hood went on and could be in the mix once more.


15:15 (Cheltenham) Lady Adare

Lady Adare can overcome top weight on her first appearance of 2024 in the British EBF Mares’ Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase Final.

Harry Fry’s charge impressed when winning at Worcester before finishing a creditable second behind Knappers Hill in a Grade Two at Wincanton to boost her status in November.

Admittedly, she pulled up when going off as joint favourite in an Exeter Listed race nine days later, but connections felt that contest came too soon and will be hoping she can bounce back in emphatic fashion.


15:50 (Cheltenham) Golden Ace


Golden Ace will be aiming to extend her unbeaten run in the Changing Young Lives At Jamie’s Farm Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle.

The six-year-old returns to the scene of her memorable success in the Ryanair Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at the Festival last month.

Her form has been boosted by runner-up Brighterdaysahead’s routine triumph in the Turners Mersey Novices’ Hurdle at Aintree, which leaves a target on her back.


17:00 (Cheltenham) Geturguccion

Geturguccion placed in two point-to-points before being narrowly denied on racecourse debut last month at Newbury.

I've Madeupmymind is another leading contender expected to progress now slightly stepping up in trip. Any strong market support to be heeded.

Anno Power was a cosy Ascot jumpers flat winner last time holding excellent credentials along with Khutulun Khan who was third behind the just mentioned at Ascot and makes the shortlist.


Cheltenham tips in full:

CHELTENHAM: 1.30 Max Of Stars, 2.05 La Renommee, 2.40 Pretending, 3.15 Lady Adare, 3.50 Golden Ace, 4.25 Pink Legend, 5.00 Geturguccion
