Looking for some tips for the Cheltenham Festival? Why not check out the selections from our panel of horse racing experts.
The panel includes Grand National winning jockey Jason Maguire, Irish racing journalist Donn McClean along with TV pundits Mark Howard and Niall Hannity, Sky Sports News Alex Hammond and Sky Bet Racing PR Manager Michael Shinners.
Alex Hammond, who is backing Irish star Hurricane Fly in the Champion Hurdle, said: "I know I'm not being too brave here, but I really think Willie Mullins' star can win the race for the third time. He's been in great form all season in Ireland, twice beating Our Conor and Jezki and leading British hopes The New One and My Tent Or Yours face a tall order in trying to lower his colours."
Here are all the selections…
Jason Maguire – Champagne Fever (Arkle Trophy) and Indian Castle (Kim Muir)
Mark Howard– Champagne Fever (Arkle Trophy) and Briar Hill (Albert Bartlett)
Donn McClean – Morning Assembly (RSA) and Last Instalment (Gold Cup)
Alex Hammond – Hurricane Fly (Champion Hurdle) and Guitar Pete (Triumph Hurdle)
Niall Hannity – Our Conor (Champion Hurdle) and Kings Palace (Albert Bartlett)
