THE greatest show on turf is rapidly approaching but picking the winners at the Cheltenham Festival is suddenly a much tougher test for the punters.

They were two fine horses who would have gone close to glory at Prestbury Park - and mean a whole new search for the winners.

With the Festival just 13 days away, who do you fancy to bring home the bacon?
