Richard Johnson was the star guest on the Channel 4 Morning Line for day three of the Cheltenham Festival and is expecting a big run from Wishfull Thinking, his mount in the Ryanair Chase.

Join BetVictor and get 10/1 Don Cossack to win the Ryanair Chase

Wishfull Thinking is a veteran now at the age of 12, but has been in good form this season with victories in Grade 2 company at Aintree and Huntingdon.

He has run at the Cheltenham Festival every year since 2010, falling twice but also finishing second, third and fifth, and the step up in distance from the two miles of the Queen Mother Champion Chase, which he has contested for the last three years, is sure to suit well. 

Here is the full list of the Channel 4 Racing Team charity bets for Thursday:

Richard Johnson

2.40 Wishfull Thinking (£50 e.w)

Ted Walsh

1.30 Vautour (£100 win)

Tom Segal

1.30 Valseur Lido (£50 win)
3.20 Abbyssial (£25 e.w)

Graham Cunningham

1.30 Valseur Lido (£50 e.w)

Alice Plunkett

3.20 Lieutenant Colonel (£50 e.w)

Tom Segal’s two selections also appear among the Pricewise tips in the Racing Post, the full list of which is as follows:

1.30 Valseur Lido (11/2 with Sky Bet)
2.05 Brother Brian (11/1 with BetVictor, offering 5 places on this race for each-way bets)
2.05 Run Ructions Run (20/1 with BetVictor)
