Punters Aim To Bounce Back On Day Three Of Cheltenham Festival

Wednesday 15th March 2017

It was a tough day for punters on day two of the Cheltenham Festival, but they will look to bounce back on Thursday afternoon, and Unowhatimeanharry will be a warm order for the Stayers' Hurdle, while Yorkhill will aim to hand Willie Mullins his first win of the meeting in the JLT Novices' Chase on what is set to be another cracking day, and we preview it all here.

Noel Fehily has been in tremendous form this week, and with wins in the Champion Hurdle and Champion Chase in the bag he will look to ride his third Championship winner of the week, and he partners Unowhatimeanharry in the Stayers' Hurdle at 3:30pm, but he will face some lively opposition in the shape of Jezki and former winner Cole Harden.

The action kicks off at 1:30pm and Yorkhill will aim to bring some positivity to the Mullins camp and he will take on the likes of Top Notch and Politologue in the JLT Novices' Chase, while at 2:10pm the Pertemps Final will be a highly competitive betting heat for punters to get stuck into.

Un De Sceaux will be another shot fired by the Mullins and Ruby Walsh gun, and the Co. Carlow inmate will be the one to beat in the Ryanair Chase at 3:30pm, but fellow Irish runner Empire Of Dirt has to be considered from Gordon Elliott's red-hot yard, who have saddled five winners already this week.

Diamond King was a Cheltenham Festival winner last year and he will head the betting for the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate, which takes place at 4:10pm, while Let's Dance will clash with Airlie Beach in an intriguing Mares' Novices' Hurdle at 4:50pm.

The action concludes with the Kim Muir Handicap Chase at 5:30pm and Mall Dini is another former festival winner aiming to bag more success, but the likes of Southfield Royale and Doctor Harper add more depth to what should be a superb finale.
