IT'S now just over three weeks until the Cheltenham Festival gets under way and excitement is building ahead of the National Hunt showpiece.

Our resident racing tipster JohnB posted his ante-post selections a few months ago, so here's a recap of his picks plus a couple of new additions.

    Briar hill has no chance on recent viewings

    Swaying towards John’s Spirit for the Ryanair but not in any hurry.

    Any currency will take some beating in the cross country chase. Worth taking the 5/1 on offer now

    Hate to go against you John but Lieutenant Colonel ew in the Stayers for me. Shown good improvement this year and more to come I feel. Won’t be a dry eye in the house if Sandra Hughes can win it for the late Dessie
    Despite its fall last time I can understand your punt on Briar Hill, coming back to himself maybe
