Top tips from RacingPost.com for the four Championship races

Tuesday – Champion Hurdle – Fusil Raffles (16/1)

The build-up to this race has been slightly chaotic with a number of entries dropping out ahead of the Festival. Punters may be put off by Fusil Raffles being unable to finish his last race on Boxing Day, but the open nature of this renewal means he stands a decent chance of winning.

Wednesday – Champion Chase – Defi Du Seuil (9/4)

Two-time Champion Altior is defending his crown but faces his toughest challenge yet over two miles. Defi Du Seuil has had a brilliant season after winning at the Festival last year and is likely to run Altior and Irish challenger Chacun Pour Soi very close.

Thursday – Stayers’ Hurdle – Paisley Park (4/6)

Paisley Park is on a run of seven straight wins, which includes this race last year, and dominates the staying hurdle division. An impressive mix of stamina and jumping often makes him hard to beat, although Summerville Boy got close when they raced at Cheltenham in January.

Friday – Gold Cup – Delta Work (6/1)

Delta Work has impressively beaten many of the other Irish entries in this race in varying conditions recently. The Gordon Elliott-trained seven-year-old is in brilliant form after a slow start to the season and should have enough to claim the biggest prize in jumps racing.
