Cheltenham selections - Tuesday

I believe it's important to recognise that the next four days of top quality racing are seen as a marathon not a sprint. There's no worse feeling than having 'done all your money' at the end of the first day.

Here are two tips for Tuesday. The Champion Hurdle (3.15) looks between the top three in the betting and there's not much between them. Detroit City looks a worthy favourite but five year olds have a poor record in this race. With that statistic in mind, a better value wager is the ultra tough Brave Inca to defend his hurdling crown. The going isn't ideal but he has won at this level on soft ground previously and the trainer has been quoted as saying the horse may be better than he was last year.

The Arkle (2.35) is a race notorious for shock results; only one favourite has won in the last ten years. Alan King committed My Way De Solzen to this race yesterday after walking the course. I think this horse will handle the ground better than Philip Hobbs' Fair Along. My Way De Solzen is the selection with Don't Push It feared. Good luck!

In PG's Tips, I do trust to mark my card
Whether the going is soft or hard
Therefore, off to Cheltenham, I do go
After listening to the man in the know

7/2 or 33/1, the odds do not matter
This man has the top tip patter
Therefore, off they go around the course
The jockey salutes me, whilst holding reigns with the slightest force

With nod from the owner, and a grimace from the bookie
I am there at last, no longer a betting rookie!
So, off to the bar to acquire a round off beer
With all my winnings and plenty to cheer

A decent first day; My Way De Solzen won at odds of 7/2 and Brave Inca, sent off at 11/2, ran a sound race to finish second to impressive 16/1 winner Sublimity.
