CHELTENHAM Festival is all about watching the world's best horses in action – and bashing the bookies at the same time.
As ever, the question is do you lump on the favourites, or take them on with some big outsiders?
You can read all the form, stats and figures you want – but ultimately the decision comes down to you.

Here, Betfair's Barry Orr runs through the horses that will hurt them the most this week – with two of them running on Tuesday.
Happygolucky – The Ultima, Tuesday
The Ultima looks a weak since declarations came through and we are only seen money for one horse and that’s Happygolucky.
Kim Bailey has good record in these types of races at the Cheltenham Festival and punters can see no other winner in this.
He’s 7-2 from 5-1.
Goshen – The Champion, Tuesday
Since Goshen's impressive win in the Kingwell Hurdle he's been very popular amongst backers to gain redemption in the Champion Hurdle and is now challenging Epatante for the second favourite spot behind Honeysuckle. Currently 4-1.

Bob Olinger – The Ballymore, Wednesday
Bob Olinger has been a preview night talking horse and since then he's attracted huge amounts of support.
It looks a really good renewal of the Ballymore and, at 2-1, Bob Olinger would be a bad start to the Wednesday for the layers.
Tritonic – The Triumph, Friday
Tritonic and Zanahiyr are tussling at the head of the betting with preference just for Tritonic at 2-1.
He took over at the head of the market after his impressive display at Kempton.
This looks a straight shootout between the best of the UK and the best of the Irish four year olds and at present bookmakers will be cheering for the Irish!
Galopin Des Champs – The Martin Pipe, Friday
Galopin Des Chanmps had been put up on a few preview nights by Ruby Walsh as a dark horse and we've seen no shortage of each way cash since, with his price contracting from 25-1 into 10-1.
