Cheltenham Festival Preview: Friday’s top tips

The Cheltenham Festival draws to a close on Friday following another exciting day on Day Three, which saw 15/2 shot More Of That overhaul the fancied pair of Big Buck’s and Annie Power to claim the World Hurdle.

We at Unibet have been excited to be covering the event comprehensively for the first time with our new racing platform.

To preview Friday’s action, we've enlisted a panel of top class experts from Channel 4 Racing - Gina Bryce, Mick Fitzgerald and Tom Lee - plus City AM's Bill Esdaile to bring you a veritable bible of daily Cheltenham tips.

Here are our Day Four best bets, which obviously focus on the Cheltenham Gold Cup (Friday, 15.20 GMT).

Gold Cup (Friday)

We’ve been against Bob’s Worth all along and he’s our big bogey despite being very short. If he wins it will be a losing book – no doubt.  We believe there’s a whole host of lively outsiders who’ll be running for us, and this race is really all about getting the favourite beaten.
