Dave Orton, Tom Segal, Nick Watts and Paddy Power’s Darren Hughes return with an ante-post look at the Cheltenham Festival 2019. This week the team look at the best bets for the Queen Mother Champion Chase and Stayers’ Hurdle.

– On today’s 2019 Cheltenham Festival ante-post #Postcast, the team give a horse-by-horse preview of the Queen Mother Champion Chase, where Altior is odds-on favourite – can Tom, Nick and Darren find some value in the without market?

– Meanwhile, Min, Sceau Royal and Saint Calvados all look like solid picks for their prices, while Simply Ned’s heroics this season are tempting some of the panel.

– We also look at a wide-open Stayers’ Hurdle, where Apple’s Jade is favourite but doubts remain on her likely destination.

– The team assess the chances of Penhill, Supasundae and Faugheen and deliver their picks from the middle of the market.
