Every day of the Cheltenham Festival, our racing editor Jon Herbert will be giving his tips for the day's races.

Here are his winners for the first day:

Cheltenham: 1.30 Vautour (BEST BET); 2.05 Trifolium; 2.40 Time For Rupert (NEXT BEST); 3.20 The New One; 4pm Quevega; 4.40 Foxrock; 5.15 Ericht.

Best bet: Vautour (Cheltenham 1.30) He retained his unbeaten record with a decisive defeat of a Grade One winner last time out and can make it a great start to the Festival for Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh.

Next best: Time For Rupert (Cheltenham 2.40) The one-time Gold Cup contender looks potentially well handicapped and can gain his fourth course win.

    Yes, of course! You'd probably find a few bookies would take a bet on that. If not, try some of the online bookmakers - some of them will take a bet on just about anything they can work out the odds for. Good luck!

    Can I place a bet on how many horses will die during the event?
