Plenty of value to be picked up in my opinion. I’ve looked at the form and re-watched previous races to compile my ‘to win’ and ‘each way’ selections for each race. (see our Each Way betting explained guide here)

Cheltenham day 4 tips 2019
Triumph Hurdle – 13:30
TO WIN – QUEL DESTIN – This horse has come on leaps and bounds since Paul Nichols took it over. It has been unstoppable now since October and has a good a mount of runs, with an acceptable rest period too.
EACH WAY – FRENCH MADE – A bit of an unknown, but that said it has done everything that has been expected of him so far. With a long odds Willie Mullins horse winning yesterday, I’m tempted here with odds of 50/1.
County Hurdle – 14:10
TO WIN – CROOKS PEAK – Looked very good last time out at the beginning of the month at Newbury. I’m hoping the confidence gained from that run resonates in to this race.
EACH WAY – WE HAVE A DREAM – This French horse has come back from a rocky period and the last time it did this it went on a run of 5 back to back wins. A good price here, in my opinion.
Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle – 14:50
TO WIN – BIRCHDALE – A Nicky Henderson horse with a 100% win record. Outright favourite for the race.
EACH WAY – STONEY MOUNTAIN – This horse isn’t a consistent winner, but is a consistent placer. Is usually there or there about come the finish line.
Cheltenham Gold Cup – 15:30
TO WIN – PRESENTING PERCY – Race favourite and with good reason. Has been in fine form and looks to be in tip-top condition leading up to the festival.
EACH WAY – DEFINITLY RED – Strong odds here for an each way bet I think. two firsts and a second place finish in its last three trips may well keep this horse up with the shorter priced ones.
Foxhunter Chase – 16:10
TO WIN – ROAD TO ROME – This horse has 7 back to back wins spanning back to November last year. Formidable form and has proven it can compete on good, soft and good to soft ground.
EACH WAY – JUST CAUSE – Just cause has been performing well since May last year with only first and second place finishes since then. A big price due to so many potential winners in this race, but one I am willing got take a risk on.
Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle – 16:50
TO WIN – WHATSWRONGWITHYOU – The only horse to come in to this race boasting back to back wins directly prior to the festival. Confidence can go a long way and I am hoping it has a major influence on this horse and race.
EACH WAY – GINO TRAIL – A solid stayer whose record is flooded with top 3 finishes. An open race so there is always the option of the to place market if you think this horse has no chance of finishing first.
Grand Annual Chase – 17:30
TO WIN – PYM – This horse fits my criteria of previous performances and odds price. Offers much better value than the race favourites, in my opinion.
EACH WAY – DOCTOR DEX – The most consistent horse in the race and way down the field in terms of pricing. Certainly worth a small stakes each way bet in my eyes.
