Paul Nicholls looks ahead to his day four runners at the Cheltenham Festival

Paul Nicholls has five runners on the final day of the Cheltenham Festival on Thursday

Here is what he has had to say about the final day.

2.50 - Stay Away Fay

"An Irish Point-to-Point winner, he did very well over the summer and won impressively on his debut over hurdles for us at Newbury in November," he said to Betfair

"He was then a bit unlucky to be beaten in a Grade 2 race at Doncaster where he didn't get the run of the race. He is short on experience but has plenty of ability and will keep galloping all day. Hopefully he has a nice each way chance."

3.30 - Bravemansgame

"He had one or two issues last year and is twice the horse now, so much bigger and stronger and bounds up our hill gallop three times in the morning.

"He had a brilliant first half of the season, winning his second King George in great style and the challenge has been to have him in the same form in the spring which hasn't always been the case.

"It helps that he is much more mature now and he looks fabulous at the moment. The key is whether he stays three and quarter miles. Who knows?

"I didn't know if Kauto Star would get the trip before he won his first Gold Cup and I'm not sure about Bravemansgame but I suspect he will stay because he was keeping on strongly in the King George.

"I don't think I've ever had him in better shape and Harry Cobden is very confident."

4.10 - Cat Tiger

"He has only had the one run this season in November and with his owner rider David Maxwell on the injured list Charlie Sprake takes over in the saddle.Cat Tiger always goes well fresh and ran a cracking race with David Maxwell when they were a close second to Latenightpass in the Aintree Foxhunter last April. I wouldn't be surprised if he runs tidily.

4.10 - Secret Investor

"He was a decent handicapper in his day before spending a long time out of action with an injury.

"He is not so good now and it was a bit of a rush to get him qualified in time with two victories in seven days.Secret Investor stays well and will get a good ride from Natalie Parker but wouldn't want the ground to be too soft. He has an outside chance."

5.30 - Irish Hill

"He is on a roll having won his last three races and the plan was to go for the Coral Cup on Wednesday and it was frustrating that he didn't quite get in despite being first reserve.

"He was raised 6lbs for his latest success at Ascot, which is fair enough, is progressive, remains in good shape at home and will be ridden by our good claimer Angus Cheleda. I'd say Irish Hill has an each way chance in a hot looking contest."
