Cheltenham Tips 2019 & Festival Betting Guide

The Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the National Hunt season, and is something of a pilgrimage for all followers of the sport, with the best horses lining up from both Britain and Ireland for a four day extravaganza of top class racing, betting and drinking.

The festival at Cheltenham Racecourse features four days of fantastic racing, with all horses primed for the most important race of their careers.The contests themselves are usually run at a far faster gallop than the average midweek racing, with maximum fields for many of the races meaning that luck in-running plays a huge part.

It can be a very dangerous meeting for even the most experienced of punters, with the lure of decent prices about classy horses tempting many to play far bigger than they usually would. Indeed many save up a "Cheltenham tank" for the entire week, allowing them to play in every race as they try to solve a series of complex puzzles.

The bettingexpert Cheltenham Festival 2019 Betting Guide is the only betting resource you'll need for all your Cheltenham betting this year. We have our racing expert Stephen Harris delivering Cheltenham tips for each race of the festival, access to the best Cheltenham bookmaker offers and free bets, guides to each day of the festival, plus previews and tips for each race every day of Cheltenham 2019.

Cheltenham Tips 2019: Favourite Horses & Jockeys

Who are the favourites to win at Cheltenham 2019? If you’re looking for the best betting advice and who we consider the Cheltenham Festival favourites for this year, get all the insight for Cheltenham 2019 from our racing expert Stephen Harris.

Top 5 favourite Cheltenham Horses 2019

What are the top 5 best bets for the 2019 Cheltenham Festival? Our racing expert Stephen Harris shares his insight and lists his top 5 horses to back for Cheltenham 2019.

Top 5 favourite Cheltenham Horses 2019

  • #1- Footpad

Progressive young chaser is quickly becoming the Irish banker at the Festival after making a brilliant start to his chasing career.

  • #2- Mr Whipped

Nicky Henderson's exciting novice idled dramatically in front when winning a valuable contest at Warwick, and has plenty more improvement in the tank as he matures (did not relish testing ground when beaten by Red River at Musselburgh last time).

  • #3- Elegant Escape

This strong galloper has excellent form at three miles with the prolific Black Corton, and could be a different proposition here now stepping upto four miles in the NH Chase.

  • #4- Ballyhill

This progressive handicapper impressed when winning at this track last time (despite pulling hard and having a very wide trip), and has been in the notebook since as one to be with in a huge field at the Festival.

  • #5- Might Bite

The Gold Cup favourite divides opinions with his well known quirks, and promises to be the "make or break" horse of the week for bookmakers and punters alike on the final day.

Top 5 favourite Cheltenham Jockeys 2019

Which jockeys are the ones to watch at Cheltenham in 2019? Our racing expert Stephen Harris shares his thoughts on the riders that are bound to come out on top at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival.

Top 5 favourite Cheltenham Jockeys 2019

  • #1- Ruby Walsh

Ruby will carry the hopes of the Irish nation as the retained Willie Mullins stable jockey, and will be highly motivated to make an impression at the Festival after a season ruined by injuries.

  • #2- Noel Fehily

Has some terrific rides on unexposed horses, with his partnership with Nicky Henderson, Anthony Honeyball and Neil Mulholland proving very profitable all season.

  • #3- Sam Twiston-Davies

Paul Nicholls has rather slipped into the shadows this season, (as former pupils Skelton and Fry snap away at his heels), but he is sure to have his team spot on for this week and his regular rider has a cracking book of intended mounts.

  • #4- Davy Russell

Few riders can finesse horses like Russell on his day, and he is frequently compared with the greats of the game such as Walsh and Francome. He has some great rides on some very well fancied Irish raiders this week.

  • #5- James Bowen

The find of the season at just the age of 16 (and a future champion jockey), showing maturity beyond his years, and worth considering anything he is booked to side over the four days.

Cheltenham Festival Tips - How To Bet On Cheltenham 2019


Cheltenham Tips 2019 Favourites

No bookmaker wants to see a winning favourite at Cheltenham. It costs them hundreds of thousands, if not millions thanks to accumulator bets. However, because the racing is so competitive, bookmakers offer generous odds on favourites to tempt customers in.

Generally, these push-outs happen every single morning of each race, so if you fancy a horse for the festival but it’s a short price, wait until the morning of the race, it’s more than likely a few bookmakers will push the odds out. What might have been a 6/4 shot might be available at 4/1 with a few bookmakers to attract your business. This offers great value to punters to get the best odds so don't forget to combine them with our best Cheltenham betting tips.

Cheltenham Tips 2019 - How To Profit At Cheltenham

If you’re looking for the best Cheltenham Festival tips for the festival, you’ve come to right place. Our racing expert Stephen Harris is one of the best racing tipsters in the business. Stephen’s daily racing tips have returned over 10% profit since he began delivering his free racing tips in 2011. He’ll no doubt deliver with his Cheltenham Festival tips this year. And the best part, they’re free.

1- Be price sensitive, shop around early in the morning and only play at the top of the market

It is vitally important to have as many bookmaker accounts as possible funded and ready to go for the Festival, with the layers often overbroke on the morning of racing and unusually willing to stand a big bet (and take on big liabilities on some of the most competitive races of the season). It is no good just taking 5/4 out of loyalty to your usual bookmaker just to have a bet, when another new up and coming layer is offering 7/4. Be ready to move quickly to get the early racetime the market has settled and the on-course bookmakers tend to trim up the front ones without pushing out the outsiders.

2- Take advantage of all the free offers, extra places, enhanced odds and money back specials

During the Festival week marketing departments are often in overdrive and in control over the more sensible trading rooms, doing all they can to attract punters onto their site or shop (and attract the golden goose of new recreational punters). This opens up some fantastic opportunities for the more astute punter, with enhanced place terms, free bets, money back for fallers, cash back if the favourite wins, free bet if you are beaten less than a neck, increased price pushes etc etc. It is worth shopping around and taking advantage of these great offers, and it is possible to put yourself in a very advantageous positions almost regardless of the final result.

3- Follow Cheltenham form and back those horse with experience at previous Festivals

One of the best pieces of advice is to watch back the last few Cheltenham Festivals, and make a note of those horses that have won or run well/been unlucky in defeat. This is a brilliant way of finding handicap winners in particular, as time and time again those horses who can handle the brutal end to end gallop over the unique undulations of this track will come to the fore. Often they will have been completely out of form in the meantime, simply not suited by smaller fields or softer ground that typifies midweek racing particularly in the UK. Overlooking these disappointments and concentrating purely on Cheltenham form has thrown up plenty of big priced winners away from the obvious.

4- Look out for patiently ridden horses in the big handicaps and focus on jockeys who are good judges of pace

Some jockeys are better at riding in the huge fields at this track than others, and it can pay to follow those who ride with patience and skill from off the pace. Obvious names like Ruby Walsh or Davy Russell are well known to all punters and have a huge following (and are booked to ride the best of the Mullins and Elliot horses in 2018), but keep an eye on Denis O'Regan, Noel Fehily, James Bowen and Bryony Frost. They are all in terrific form in recent months and have an excellent record in big field handicaps or have shone at Cheltenham given just a few opportunities.

5- Play each-way and avoid very short prices/over-hyped horses on reputation rather than solid form

The bookmakers love nothing more than laying a short one at Cheltenham, and the meeting can be a graveyard for those that like to lump on a thin one at the head of the market. The prices tend to represent public sentiment and reputation rather than solid form in the book, and it is easy to get carried away listening to all the hype that surrounds a lot of the lightly raced Irish horses (many of whom have gained their tall reputation from winning in small fields on deeper ground at their home tracks). Try and play each-way against the odds-on favourites, with the layers all offering 1/4 the odds a place and the terms very much in the shrewd backers favour.
