Saturday is Day 2 of the International Meeting at Cheltenham, with all five selections coming from the Prestbury Park venue. So check out the days top five most popular newspaper tips below, along with the best odds available.
1: Secret Investor (1:55pm Cheltenham) (5 Votes)
Followed on from a win at Wincanton, with a Grade 2 victory at Ayr in April, winning by over three lengths in a strong display. Returned to action with a distant second to Red Steel at Down Royal last time out, but Paul Nicholls’ insisted that there is more to come, although could do with the ground firming up a little.

2: Call Me Lord (3:05pm Cheltenham) (5 Votes)
Main threat to Pentland Hills, who jockey Nico De Boinville has chosen to ride today. Some concern over his preference for right-handed circuits is negated by two wins in France on left-handed tracks. Form is good, with a win at Sandown in March a particular highlight. Finished second last time out at Ascot in the Coral Hurdle over 2m 3f, with the drop to 2m more likely to suit here.

3: Botox Has (12:10pm Cheltenham) (3 Votes)
Strong favourite here, who finished runner-up in a listed Hurdle at Auteuil on only French outing, before winning at Fontwell in October. However its their second over course and distance last month in a Class 1 race that really puts them head and shoulders above the majority of competitors here, with anything less than a win, likely to be a big surprise

4: Lust For Glory (3:40pm Cheltenham) (3 Votes)
Three wins and three places from eight career starts show a horse with plenty of class and despite the worst run of their career here, when some twenty lengths behind the winner (Indefatigable), they have started the new season well, finishing second in a Class 2 handicap hurdle at Ascot last month. Has every chance, now seemingly back to their best.

5: Champagne Well (5:50pm Chelmsford) (2 Votes)
Picked up maiden hurdle victory at Cheltenham in October, holding on well to win by half a length in a 2m 5f trip. Stepped up well, finishing second in a Grade 2 race over the same distance here, last month. Faces a solid test and may need to find a little bit more to guarantee victory today.
