Cheltenham Festival 2019 comes to a thrilling conclusion on Friday 15 March with Gold Cup day.

Wednesday was a very good day, with 4 winners from the 7 races, including a NB with Envoi Allen taking out the Champion Bumper, and the highlight of the day being an overnight 40/1 shot, William Henry swooping late to lift the Coral Cup. Thursday is another excellent prospect for racing fans, as Cheltenham Festival […]
Tuesday we watched as Cheltenham Festival 2019 got off to a great start, and we landed a nice touch in the Champion Hurdle, despite Apple’s Jade failing to put her best foot forward, when our each-way selection won the big race.

Tips for Today
If you’re looking for today’s tips, then bookmark this page, because here is where they will be listed, with the most recently added information at the top.
Why do they call them Tips?
Ever wondered why they are called tips? Well, it appears the word comes from the same as when you give a small gift of money to a waiter or taxi driver. And that does make some sense – you’re being given the small gift of some racing information. Its not the same thing as money, obviously, but this is really likely to be where the phrase comes from.
Why to they call them naps?
Okay, so that’s why tips is tips, but what the actual f&*% does “nap” mean?!
Well, it usually means to take a short sleep, so this doesn’t make much sense, now, does it! But, actually, its thought to have derived from the shortening of a card game called Napoleon, in 19th Century English.
A card game would make more sense to become a piece of gambling terminology.
Whatever the case may be, a nap, for us, means the horse we tip “the most” or the best chance on the day. If you see us using the word “nap” we’re probably not talking about a sleeping horse.
Money for nothing and your tips for free…
Tips are completely free, and we post tips for each course, and also one comprehensive time-sorted tipping post too, which details four Naps of the Day, every day when racing is happening in the UK and Ireland.
