Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle 2019
Race 1, Wednesday 14th March 1:30
The 2018 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle looks wide open with no obvious superstar yet to emerge. The 2017 renewal produced a cracking finish between outsider Willoughby Court and the well backed Neon Wolf, with the former a real breakthrough winner at the top table for the excellent Ben Pauling stable. Take a look at the bettingexpert Neptune Novices’ Hurdle tips to get a value angle into the race close to raceday.
RSA Steeple Chase 2019
Race 2, Wednesday 14th March 2:10
The 2018 RSA Chase looks very competitive with no standout candidate yet to emerge (like many of this year’s championship contests), and the bookmakers currently offer 7/1 the field. An RSA Chase winner needs not only to have stamina, but also an ability to ‘go again’ and quicken as the horses enter the back straight. Last year saw a dramatic finish as the well backed favourite Might Bite almost chucked away victory by veering towards the stands on the run-in. Check out our RSA Chase preview to see exactly who fits that profile in this year’s race.
Coral Cup Hurdle 2019
Race 3, Wednesday 14th March 2:40
Jessica Harrington's Supasundae landed this competitive handicap in 2017 for the Irish, with the popular Robbie Power at his strongest in a typically bunched finish up the hill. Finding a well handicapped horse in this type of race is perilously difficult. We’ve analysed the Coral Cup trends & stats, betting odds and more to give you some tempting each-way value in this year’s renewal.
Queen Mother Champion Chase 2019
Race 4, Wednesday 14th March 3:30
The 2018 Queen Mother Champion Chase revolves around one horse this season, Altior, and whether he is able to shrug off the reported wind problems that have kept him off the track since April 2017. If he is not over his physical issues, then the progressive Politologue could be the one to take advantage. Let the Bettingexpert analysis help you find a good Champion Chase tip this year.
Cheltenham Cross Country Chase Betting Tips
Race 5, Wednesday 14th March 4:10
The Cross Country Chase always has a slightly different feel to the main championship races at the Cheltenham Festival with obscure obstacles and tight, weaving circuits on the inside of the usual racecourse. Enda Bolger excels with just this type of horse and has a very good chance with Josie’s Order in 2018. A course and distance winner, he could prove tricky to overcome this year. Check out our Cross Country Chase tips for this year’s renewal.
Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle 2019
Race 6, Wednesday 14th March 4:50
The Fred Winter betting is one of the most open of all the races at this year’s festival (2017 prodcued a shock 33/1 winner in Flying Tiger to the delight of the layers). With many trainers playing their hand late, it’s hard to get a grasp on exactly what will be turning up. The SPs of 2016's first four were: 25/1, 14/1, 33/1 and 16/1 returning a gigantic trifecta pay out of £13,942.60. Be sure to check out our Fred Winter preview & tips to help digest one of the hardest races at the Cheltenham festival.
Champion Bumper 2019
Race 7, Wednesday 14th March 5:30
The Cheltenham Champion Bumper betting odds often prove more helpful than the form book (given there’s so much we don’t know about the unexposed horses at the head of the market). The 2017 winner Fayonagh capped a fanstatic day for Gordon Elliot, and the race has typically thrown up numerous future winners over hurdles. Given the last eight Champion Bumper winners have had SPs of: 7/1, 5/1, 9/2, 16/1, 25/1, 16/1, 14/1 and 40/1, let us give you some pointers in what has proved to be an extremely hard race to crack in recent years.
Cheltenham 2019 Ladies Day Races
The highlight of Day 2 at the Cheltenham Festival is undoubtedly the Queen Mother Champion Chase. This two mile contest is always a thrilling spectacle, with top class proven performers flying round at a strong gallop and some fantastic finishes over the years. In 2018 the prolific and heavily backed favourite Altior surged clear up the hill to deny market rival Min, and he seems sure to take an awful lot of beating in the 2019 renewal (warmed up with an effortless long odds-on win at Kempton over Christmas, and currently a best priced 1/2f in the early markets).
The supporting card is full of interest too, with the opening Ballymore novice hurdle often unearthing a future superstar. 2018 saw the great Irish banker Samcro land a welter burden of support both in the build up to the Festival and on the day itself, storming clear up the hill to get the Wednesday off to a flying start for punters. However, he has not franked the form at all this season and has suffered a well documented setback ahead of this years Festival.
Elsewhere on a competitive card, the Coral Cup is one of the hardest puzzles for punters to solve, with a massive field of tightly matched handicappers locking horns and the bookmakers always likely to get a “result”. In 2018 Bleu Berry was the one to spring a 20/1 shock in a race that typically changed complexion up the hill.
The final race on Wednesday is always a cracking betting heat, with the Champion NH Flat race seeing some huge reputations clashing from both the UK and Ireland. These young and inexperienced horses have never come across the circumstances that face them at Cheltenham in this Grade 1 bumper, with the pace a lot stronger and the ground usually a lot faster than they are used to. Traditionally the bookmakers come out on top, and it was certainly the case in 2018 when the 25/1 chance Relegate sprang a major surprise and lowered the colours of some more hyped up rivals.
