Cheltenham Festival 2022 Day Four Tips: The Gold Cup, Triumph Hurdle and More



A Great Race in the Making

Run over three miles and two furlongs and featuring 22 fences, the Gold Cup has produced some of the sport’s greatest moments, including Dawn Run’s win in 1984 and Denman and Kauto Star’s duopoly in the late 2000s. This year’s race is on Friday, March 17 at 3.30pm. Betting on the Cheltenham Festival? Take a look at the best Cheltenham betting offers and free bets.

The Triumph Hurdle

The race for speedy juvenile hurdlers, the Triumph has produced numerous future Champion Hurdle winners while, remarkably, twice Grand National winner Tiger Roll won this in 2014. Four of the last five winners have been Irish trained, and Willie Mullins has the three most-fancied runners this year.

Marlborough’s Pick:

Blood Destiny has looked a horse of Grade 1 ability in winning both of his Irish starts over hurdles in facile fashion, and he remains totally unexposed.

Handicaps Come with Grade 1 Horses

Furiously competitive handicap but one that can throw up Grade 1 horses of the future (as the last 3 winners have proven).

Marlborough’s Pick:

Filey Bay could take all the beating. His ultra-shrewd trainer Emmet Mullins has campaigned Filey Bay exclusively in the UK so far this term and, with a mark of 141 that looks more than workable, not to mention the addition of a first-time tongue tie, he could be on his way to the top.

A Staying Hurdles Event

Plenty of unexposed, progressive young staying hurdlers come forward here with chances that can be made for a few here.

Marlborough’s Pick:

Corbetts Cross looks to have plenty more to come; he rates a leading contender here.

The Gold Cup

Galopin Des Champs is the stand-out talent in the race, and he has the potential to blow the race apart. The defending champion A Plus Tard could be a close contender.

Marlborough’s Picks:

Noble Yeats has a strong chance to win, whilst Stattler also has strong claims.

Amateur Jockeys on the Course

This race is run over the same course and trip as the Gold Cup, but is for amateur jockeys.

Marlborough’s Pick:

Bob and Co is fancied to reward each-way support, but Its On The Line rates a fascinating contender from Ireland.

Another Mares’ Race

One of the two Mares’ races that was added to the schedule in 2021, with Willie Mullins winning both renewals.

Marlborough’s Pick:

If there is a chink in Allegorie De Vassy’s armour, it could well be the fact that she has been kept to right-handed tracks, which may benefit Impervious, who has looked great in winning each of her 3 starts this term.

Closing the Festival with a Hurdle

Spanish Harlem looks a highly-promising hurdler, with a mark of 135 looking more than lenient.

Marlborough’s Pick:

Spanish Harlem looks highly likely to take a step up here and round out a successful week for both his trainer and jockey.

Tip Highlights

The Skeltons are lethal in these big handicaps; Pembroke has a good chance in the County Hurdle (2.10).

Since ITV took over the television rights in 2017, this is the best Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup we have had. It has got the lot.

Chianti Classico is Marlborough’s pick for the Albert Bartlett (2.50).

Stay Away Fay is Marlborough’s pick for the Bumper (5.15).
