Severn Sport Tipster League 2018 – Cheltenham Festival Day 1 Tips

Forget Christmas, this truly is the most wonderful time of the year. It is of course the start of the Cheltenham Festival for 2018. It also means it is the return of the tipster league.

If you missed it last year the tipster league sees 10 local competitors (individuals and teams) who pit their wits and tips against one another in a bid to be crowned King Tipster here at Severn Sport.

On each of the four days the competitors are given three races. In these races they are to pick a winner, an each way shot and a reserve. They accumulate points depending on how well their horses run and are punished if they tip bad tips.

Remember, there are three boosts our competitors can use (once each throughout the week). They are, double points (2xPoints) which sees their horse receive double points. Double price (2xPrice) which sees their horse’s starting price double – increasing their chances of getting bonus points. The final boost is Extra Place (XPlace) which sees the competitors pick two each way shots in one race.

Today is day one. And today’s races are:

1.30pm – Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle

2.50pm – Ultima Handicap Chase.

5.30pm – Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase

*All prices are taken off of the Racing Post App at approximately 9am. All prices are subject to change.
