Cheltenham odds for day 2 are not yet available. We will post live Cheltenham odds for day 2 as soon as they become available.

Neptune Novices’ Hurdle 2018

Race 1, Wednesday 14th March 1:30

The 2018 Neptune 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 2018

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 2018

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 2018

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 2018

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 2018

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 2018 Ladies Day Races

It’s not quite big hats and fancy fascinators on Ladies Day, but the second day of the Cheltenham Festival promises another seven races of adrenaline pumping action. The day gets underway with the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle which has an impressive alumni including Faugheen, The New One and Simonsig. It acts as the big brother to the Supreme Novices Hurdle, offering a further five furlongs in distance.

Keeping with the novice theme, next up is the RSA Novices Chase, a very tricky race for punters to get right with only one winning favourite in the last six years. Read the Bettingexpert tips & previews for each race to find out who we’re backing in the RSA Chase and more. The showpiece on day two of the festival is the Queen Mother Champion Chase, an exhilarating two-mile chase which stretches even the best chasers accuracy and fluency. Check out the Bettingexpert Champion Chase betting tips to find out who we’re siding with.

One of the hardest, but most informative races on the card is without doubt the Champion Bumper. With very little form to go on, it can be an extremely hard race for punters, but it can prove an excellent guide for the future. Take a look at our Champion Bumper tips to give you a better idea in this tricky field. The Cross Country Chase is always a spectacle on day two of the festival with plenty of unusual obstacles and a twisting and turning course.
