CHELTENHAM Festival came back with a bang on day one – and our celebrity tipsters were in the money with two winners!
They are back with their top selections for day two – but do you know your handicaps from your Grade Ones?
Befuddled by form, perplexed by plot jobs or clueless about Champion Chases?
Well the good news is Sun Racing has cobbled together three of the biggest names to turn you from chump to champ.
Star columnist Piers Morgan, footie legend Harry Redknapp and Love Island star-turned racing specialist Chris Hughes – who will feature on ITV Racing's coverage through the week – have perused the form for your punting pleasure.
Our top celebs have put in the hard yards so you don't have to, and it proved worthwhile on Tuesday with Piers tipping Champion Hurdle winner Honeysuckle, Chris finding Arkle hero Edwardstone and Harry just missing out with Gaelic Warrior, who finished second.

3.30pm – Champion Chase
Going with the favourites served me so well and, being such a reader favourite myself, I don't see any point in changing!
Nicky Henderson was in fine form on day one and that Constitution Hill win in the Supreme blew me away.
Shishkin is an absolute monster and I full expect him to win again here. Come on, Shish!
4.50pm – Grand Annual
I like anything where the shrewd money is going and I reckon JP McManus, that most legendary of owners, could be onto one here.
Trained by Gordon Elliott, I reckon this eight-year-old can improve on his runner-up finish last time out.
2.50pm – Coral Cup
Coral ambassador Chris reckons this grey is a true improver and he seems to be fully set to do something special at the festival.
Recent form suggest he will be right there turning in with a golden chance.
They seemed extremely happy with him at the Skelton yard when I visited earlier this month, and all being well I think he do the business!
Back Chris' tip with Coral at 10-1
