Wednesday 15 April marks the final farewell of legendary jockey AP McCoy to Cheltenham, where he has enjoyed fantastic successes over the years. Today’s racing tips from Sky Sports are for this momentous occasion. The going had been forecast as good for this turf course.
McCoy will only be featuring in one race of this two-day event. Only five horses will be racing in the 14:05 Novices Hurdle, so McCoy will have a small field to fight through while riding the 5/2 Boru’s Brook.
A busier field of 11 runners will be competing in the 14:40 Cheltenham Club Handicap Chase. Lots of successful jockeys will be competing, so the odds are more generous for this race.
Financial Climate has been identified as favourite at 9/2, but Loose Chips could be more appealing at 13/2 – that is because Noel Fehily is a former winner of the Championship Hurdle.
