The first day of Cheltenham Festival 2012 is over and the Champion Day results are in. There has been an array of thrilling performances, creating a buzz amongst horse racing fans and punters. The Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup site will review the most significant Champion Day results, and look ahead to the Cheltenham Ladies Day in order to provide Cheltenham betting tips and predictions for the event.

During the eagerly anticipated Racing Post Arkle Challenge Trophy Chase, the 2011 winner Al Ferof only managed to place fourth. This shock result is down to the horse suffering a blunder during an attempted jump, causing him to slow down significantly. Meanwhile, Sprinter Sacre managed to win the race. The horse came up through the ranks last season, and punters are already placing bets on his potential performance in the 2013 Cheltenham Festival.

Another 2011 winner who underperformed dramatically during the 2012 Cheltenham Festival was Hurricane Fly. While most horse racing professionals believed that the horse would place first in the Champion Hurdle, he only managed to achieve third position behind Rock On Ruby and Overturn.

With horse racing fans looking to the next day at Cheltenham Festival, the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup site offers Ladies Day betting predictions for the event. Firstly, Sizing Europe is in a strong position for the Queen Mother Champion Steeple Chase - the horse recently beat his competitor Big Zeb in the 2012 Tied Cottage Chase, meaning that he also has a strong chance of outperforming his opponent again in the 2012 Cheltenham Champion Chase.

The RSA Chase is another big race taking place on Cheltenham Ladies Day. Both Bobs Worth and First Lieutenant have caught the attention of horse racing professionals, who view these two competitors as potential winners.
