We bring you our Cheltenham tips for every race on day three of the November Meeting this Sunday.

The third and final day of racing at the November Meeting features four Graded races, with the Greatwood Handicap Hurdle the biggest betting race of the day.

We've enjoyed a superb meeting so far. Especially on day one, where we tipped a 26/1 double and two 33/1 winners. Here are our tips for Cheltenham on Sunday.

Cheltenham Tips - Sunday 15th November

Race 1 - Novices' Chase Tips

The Big Breakaway1:15pm mallardjewellers.com Novices' Chase (Class 2) 3m½fGET EVENS HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

I've been waiting for THE BIG BREAKAWAY to make his reappearance since the new National Hunt season kicked off, and I'm not going to side against Colin Tizzard's star on his chasing bow.

The Big Breakaway swept some decent rivals aside when winning twice in novice hurdles last season. Robbie Power's mount then only finished fourth in the Ballymore, but that was a good effort considering how poorly Tizzard's horses ran at the Cheltenham Festival.

Whatever this big bull of a horse achieved over hurdles was always going to be a bonus. He's built to jump fences, and I can't wait to see how he gets on in Sunday's opener.

Race 2 - Handicap Chase Tips

Discorama1:50pm Planteur At Chapel Stud Handicap Chase (Grade 3) 3m3½fGET 9/2 HERE
+18 only. Gamble Responsibly. Ts and Cs apply. Ladbrokes is operated by LC International Limited (Suite 6, Atlantic Suites, Gibraltar) and licensed (ref 54743) and regulated by the British Gambling Commission for persons gambling in Great Britain.

Having come up just short of Frodon on his return, West Approach looks in good shape to try and defend a title he won comfortably 12 months ago. Tizzard's ten-year-old is, however, running off a mark six-pounds higher than the 142 he won so well with last year, and West Approach's record over fences tells you he could be vulnerable.

Captain Drake appeals at the weights, but I think the classiest horse in this race is Paul Nolan's raider DISCORAMA, who went down by just a neck to Kim Muir winner Milan Native on his reappearance at Galway.

Discorama has never been out of the places here at Cheltenham; placing in the Martin Pipe, losing by a head to Le Breuil in the National Hunt Chase, and finishing third in the Ultima earlier this year. Getting Discorama back to the Ultima on a decent mark will be Nolan's main priority, but a win here off 150 wouldn't push him that far up the weights, and Robbie Power's mount is more than capable of doing just that.

Race 3 - Shloer Chase Tips

Put The Kettle On is clearly a very good mare and has to be respected. As does Rouge Vif, who bolted up here the last day and remains a young chaser on the upgrade. That being said, 15/8 is a cracking price for a horse of DEFI DU SEUIL'S calibre, and I'm prepared to forgive the favourite that shocking run at the Festival.

Defi Du Seuil's performance that day was too bad to be true. Richard Johnson's mount jumped slowly throughout, and found absolutely nothing when his rider asked for an effort, trailing home a distant fourth.

Philip Hobbs' charge beat the Champion Chaser, Politologue in this race last season, before scoring in the Tingle Creek and the Clarence House. If he's back to anything like his best, then Defi Du Seuil will take all the beating.

Race 5 - Sharp Novices' Hurdle Tips

He may, technically, but the fifth-best horse in this race on official ratings, but this looks and ideal opportunity for THIRD TIME LUCKI to claim a first Graded win over hurdles on Sunday.

Last year's Champion Bumper fourth hacked up as a 1/3 shot on his hurdles debut. A mistake two-out forced Harry Skelton to get to work at Wetherby last time, but Third Time Lucki was still strong enough to get the job done, winning by just less than two lengths under that six-pound winner's penalty.

Dan Skelton's youngster currently sits sixth in the betting for the 2021 Supreme Novices' Hurdle, and Third Time Lucki will certainly have to be beating a field of this calibre to justify those sort of Cheltenham Festival quotes.

Race 6 - Listed Flat Race Tips

You better sit up and take notice when Gordon Elliott sends a runner over to Cheltenham for a bumper in the autumn, and it's hard to side against WESEEKHIMHERE when you watch a replay of his latest win at Listowel.

Jamie Codd's mount carried a winner's penalty into that bumper, having bolted up by 11-lengths on his second start at Galway. Weseekhimhere travelled through the race powerfully, before pulling clear of his rivals with the minimum of encouragement.

Like Third Time Lucki, Weseekhimhere is a 25/1 shot to win at the Cheltenham Festival. If he is a Champion Bumper horse, then a third-straight victory should be a mere formality.
