A star-studded field will line up for the Punchestown Gold Cup at 17:55 on Wednesday and the recent Ryanair Chase winner Allaho is a warm order for the Grade 1 showpiece, and the Willie Mullins-trained superstar has proven popular amongst our racing tipsters. Four of them including the likes of Melissa Jones from the Mirror Online, who tipped a 20/1 winner yesterday, and Lee Sobot from The Yorkshire Evening Post have tipped up the Closutton inmate.

Newsboy of the Daily Mirror is taking on Allaho with the Paul Nicholls-trained Clan Des Obeaux, who is an 11/2 shot to retain his Punchestown Gold Cup crown, while The Scout from the Daily Express is napping the 11/2 former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Minella Indo, with Brian Flanagan from the Irish Daily Star opting for Gordon Elliott's Galvin.

Ian Gaughan from the Irish Herald bagged an 11/1 winner on Tuesday, as he tipped up Felix Desjy and he returns to Punchestown for his best bet of the day and he's backing the 12/1 chance Cavalry Master in the 19:05 at Punchestown, while Mercury from the Daily Post is backing the classy Freedom To Dream in the 16:15 event.

Aidan O'Brien's Wordsworth is a leading contender for the Group 3 Sagaro Stakes at Ascot at 15:35 today and the Ballydoyle raider has proven popular with our tipsters as three of them, including Chris Wright from the Liverpool Echo and Alex Hammond from Sky Sports Racing, have put it up as their best bet of the day.

The other two horses on Wednesday that have been napped by three of our racing writers are the Karl Burke-trained Hooked On You, who is a 7/4 chance for the 16:21 at Pontefract and Robert Cowell's Yazaman, who is a 9/2 shot for the 17:10 at Ascot.
