Ruby Walsh Cheltenham Festival 2012 Tips
Wed, Feb 22nd, 2012

Ruby Walsh might not be taking the Fat Jockey Cheltenham Festival Tips Challenge but courtesy of the Irish Examiner we do have his take on the big races at Cheltenham.

He sounds very sweet on the prospects of his rides in the the two feature hurdle races. That's on the short priced favourites Hurricane Fly in the Stan James Champion Hurdle and Big Bucks in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle. Maybe we are reading too much between the lines but he sounds a bit more cautious about the chances of Kauto Star in the Gold Cup and Quevega in the Mares Hurdle. 

If you fancy all four of these horses, there is a Ruby Walsh special bet, Hurricane Fly, Quevega, Big Bucks and Kauto Star all to win at the Cheltenham Festival, available at 22/1 with Paddy Power. The first three look like banker material and combining that special with our free bet could make watching the 2012 Gold Cup very exciting !

Ruby picks out Willie Mullin's trained Boston Bob as his other big chance but doesn't know whether he goes for the Neptune or Albert Bartlett Hurdle.

With such a fantastic book of rides its is no surprise Ruby Walsh heads the betting for the Cheltenham Festival Leading Rider award. You can back him at 4/6 with Bet365.

One final thought. Had Ruby Oscar Whisky in mind when saying the flamboyant horse that travels never gets home in three mile hurdles ? Judge for yourself.
