Cheltenham Festival fever has hit the sporting world in emphatic style and day two of the meeting kicks off at 1:30pm on Wednesday afternoon, and there are seven magnificent races which could see some shock Cheltenham Festival Results.

Altior maybe the star attraction in the Queen Mother Champion Chase, but away from that Championship showpiece at 3:30pm there are some hugely competitive contests that could give a golden opportunity for some big-priced runners to run well at lofty odds.

We pick out three runners that could run huge races at massive odds and have to be considered lively each-way contenders on a day that will also see the British and Irish do battle in the Prestbury Cup.  The Irish lead 4-3 in the race for the Prestbury Cup, and as we show below they could have some exciting big-priced runners lining up.

Galvin - Ballymore Novices' Hurdle

Gordon Elliott had a disappointing day on Tuesday with Apple's Jade flopping in the Champion Hurdle, but the Irish handler will unleash a strong team at day two of the festival and it would be no surprise to see him enter the winner's enclosure on Wednesday.

Battleoverdoyen is the premier challenger for Elliott in the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle at 1:30pm, but Galvin heads into the contest as a lively outsider and could outrun his odds.  With five wins out of five during his career the five-year-old will face his toughest test to date against some proven Graded performers, but Elliott wouldn't be running him if he didn't feel he was up for it and he could be a prominent finisher.

Farclas - Coral Cup

Horrendously out of form this season, Farclas has had his expectations lowered by Gordon Elliott on Wednesday afternoon as he drops into handicap company in the Coral Cup at 2:50pm.  No match for Apple's Jade in Grade 1 company this season in Ireland, Elliott will be hoping that Farclas can recapture his best form off an eye-catching mark of 151.

A superb winner of the Triumph Hurdle at last year's Cheltenham Festival, Farclas will need to emulate that fine run to feature here, but while he will have a lot to do to beat the well-fancied Uradel, if he can recapture the form that saw him star in his juvenile season then he could go close.

Kingswell Theatre - Cross Country Chase

All eyes will be on Tiger Roll in the Cross Country Chase, but behind the three-times Cheltenham Festival winner there are some proven Cross Country Chase performers and there are some tasty prices available about some smart individuals.

Michael Scudamore's Kingswell Theatre hasn't been seen on a racecourse for over 450 days, but in 2017 he produced a career best when winning a Cross Country Chase over the course and distance, and while this will be tougher off level weights he is a monster price in what should see only the dourest of stayers finish in prominent positions.
