All week we will have the best of the Cheltenham Stats for you from our guest stat man @ThoroSpeed. You can find even more in depth analysis here for every race of the day
Over the years the best bets for the Ratings are in Class 1 Stakes and Class 2 Stakes and Handicaps so let's take a look
Cheltenham 1.30 Diverge
Cheltenham 2.10 El Fabiolo
Cheltenham 3.30 I Like To Move It
Cheltenham 4.10 Echoes In Rain
So for day 1 these are my best bets by design. I Like To Move It is out there but on figs he put up a very big time at Wincanton. I think the other 3 are very interesting. Diverge is Mullins 3rd string in the 1st but definitely deserves his place win the line up on his last blistering performance in a great time and winning by 23 lengths in a canter.
