Cheltenham Thursday: Tips and runners for races on St Patrick’s Day including Stayers’ Hurdle



Willie Mullins’ strongest Cheltenham Festival contender Allaho in unleashed on day three of the big week.

Last year’s impressive Ryanair Chase winner bids for back-to-back victories in the Grade 1 event.

Mullins, at the top of the trainers’ table for the week, has four winners on the board already.

Sir Gerhard and Facile Vega coped with the wet conditions on Wednesday’s card while Stattler gave the team an opening day triumph.

Thursday’s card, on St Patrick’s Day, also sees a strong team of Irish runners face the starter.

Last year’s big race hero Flooring Porter lines up again in the feature Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle.

His rivals include 2019 hero Paisley Park, the Nicky Henderson-trained Champ and Philip Hobbs’ Thyme Hill.
