Cheltenham Festival 2017 tips: ITV Racing presenter Oli Bell gives his top picks

ITV Racing presenter Oli Bell explains how he’ll be preparing for the Cheltenham Festival and provides us with seven early fancies for the four days:

On Friday, I’ll be heading to Sandown ahead of a very special The Opening Show on Saturday. We’re broadcasting our first interactive Cheltenham preview, where we preview the racing in the first half of the show and then take your questions in the second.

I’ll be joined by Sam Twiston-Davies, Luke Harvey and Matt Chapman and we want to hear from you about anything and everything related to racing and the Festival. We’ll be answering as many as we can so tweet us at @itvracing using #TheOpeningShow or head to the ITV Racing Facebook page.

I’m really looking forward to watching England v Scotland in the Six Nations – hopefully Scotland want to engage in rucks this week.

Even though they look a much more polished outfit and have looked good this campaign, I think Scotland won’t have enough to beat England. As an England fan, I hope we can put together a complete performance for 80 minutes. We have shown plenty of glimpses of real quality, now it’s about putting that all together for the entire game.
