and here are our pre race comments :

The Adonis Hurdle winner Baby Mix and Alan King's Dovecote winner Grumeti are at the top of the betting. Paul Nicholl's Pearl Swan and another Alan King Inmate. Balder success. Fatjockey.com tipsers Barry Geraghty, Jason Maguire, Richard Johnson and Choc Thornton have won 7 of the last 10 Triumph Hurdles so we expect them to have hot tips for this race. You can get their free tips for Cheltenham race week here. Grumeti looks like one of Choc Thorntons best prospects for the entire week and with Fingal Bay under a cloud, Saddlers Risk might turn out to be Richard Johnson's best chance this year. Hollow Tree has a lively chance for Jason Maguire. Can our tipsters keep up their great win strike rate in the Triumph Hurdle ?
