The Ballymore Novices Hurdle is the first puzzle to solve for those who bet on Cheltenham on Wednesday.
This race is ran over 2m5f so is a tough test for novice hurdlers who are still in their youth.
Ireland have a strong connection with this race and they have won five of the last six renewals.
This means their horses are certainly worth checking out when you look at the card on the day.
Bravemansgame won the Grade One Challow Hurdle over the festive period to put himself right in the picture for this race and his performance was so good that he is our tip.
Speaking after the race, trainer Paul Nicholls said that although a different style of horse, Bravemansgame is right up there with Denman ability wise at the moment, a huge statement.
Bob Olinger and Gaillard Du Mensil lead the Irish challenge for the race after impressing in recent wins.
This betting market is really top heavy, with three big challengers for the race and then a wide gap before anything else gets involved.
As things stand now, Bob Olinger is the 5/2 favourite, with Gaillard Du Mensil behind at 11/4 and Bravemansgame behind that.
Nothing else is remotely close to these three, it is 16/1+ for everything else that is heading towards this race.
