    Cheltenham Festival tips: Tuesday 16 March

    1.05pm Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle
    H&H magazine racing editor Jennifer Donald: APPRECIATE IT
    “It is hard to look beyond the Willie Mullins-trained seven-year-old who is three out of three over hurdles, including at Cheltenham earlier in the season over this same distance.”

    1.55pm Sporting Life Arkle Challenge Trophy Novices’ Chase
    Event rider Oliver Townend: ALLMANKIND
    “He’s unbeaten in his three chasing starts. I watched his first run over fences at Warwick and I’ve never seen a horse so quick over his fences. He looks like a serious horse for trainer Dan Skelton and owners Bill and Tim Gredley.”

    2.30pm Ultima Handicap Chase

    Racing journalist Julian Muscat: GOSHEN
    “A powerful galloper with abundant scope, he will be particularly well suited to the way this race will unfold.”

    Racing correspondent Carl Evans: GOSHEN
    “This robust gelding has to concede 7lb to the brilliant mares Honeysuckle and Epatante, but as a five-year-old he is progressive and he was impressive when winning at Wincanton last month.”

    3.40pm Close Brothers Mares’ Hurdle
    Former international showjumper Graham Fletcher: ROKSANA
    “She’s a fantastic mare and I can see her giving the Skeltons a really good start to the week.”

    Olympic champion Nick Skelton: ROKSANA
    “She’s won it once and was placed last year and I think she’s in better form than she’s ever been in.”

    4.15pm Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle
    Racing journalist Tom Peacock: RIVIERE D’ETEL
    “She very much caught the eye after bolting up on her debut in Ireland, having gained experience in France. She goes for a race that connections are always respected in and ran well against her elders last time.”
