Remember, in a Lucky 15 your bets are four single bets, six doubles, four trebles and one four-fold accumulator.

CAPTAIN GUINNESS (1.55)

He caught the eye when still going very nicely in the Irish Arkle last time before taking a clumsy late tumble. He has plenty of speed for this trip and looks open to improvement. He may not be good enough to beat Shiskin but looks a decent price to fill the forecast spot.

ABACADABRAS (3.05)

He was a heartbreaking second in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle 12 months ago when chinned right on the line.

He’s done well since then and chased home Honeysuckle in the Irish Champion Hurdle last time. This guaranteed gallop will help and he looks a solid each-way prospect.

BLACK TEARS (3.40)

She has been overlooked a little for this Mares’ Hurdle despite her impressive Punchestown victory 15 days ago. That was a good performance and, as long as this doesn’t come too soon, she can get into the first three.

RIVIERE D’ETEL (4.15)

She won by 12 lengths on her Irish debut at Punchestown before the slow pace didn’t help her at Navan last time. There’s a guaranteed gallop here, which will play to her strengths, and she could be ahead of the handicapper.

Don't forget, SunSport tipster Templegate has given a verdict on every race at Cheltenham on Tuesday – and around the UK.
