Triumph Hurdle Odds & Tips
Race 1, Friday 16th March 1:30
There are some very promising young novices this season in what appears a wide open renewal, with the layers currently offering 4/1 the field headed by the unbeaten Apples Shakira. Take advantage of plenty of betting opportunities by checking out the Bettingexpert Triumph Hurdle preview & tips.
County Hurdle Preview & Betting
Race 2, Friday 16th March 2:10
Willie Mullins won this in 2017 with the unconsidered 20/1 chance Arctic Fire (kicking off a terrific day for bookmakers), in a race run at a typically blistering pace and plenty of hard luck stories in running. As with all the Cheltenham Festival races, we’ve got you covered. Read our County Hurdle betting preview with tips to make the most of that each-way value.
Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle Tips & Odds
Race 3, Friday 16th March 2:50
Pehill was a shock 16/1 winner of this in 2017 to the delight of the layers, who unusually found themselves welcoming a Willie Mullins double at the Festival. Read the exclusive Albert Novices Hurdle Preview.
Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting & Tips
Race 4, Friday 16th March 3:30
Sizing John landed a sub-standard 2017 Gold Cup, with the field ending up in a heap up the hill in a very tight finish, and the 2018 renewal has a wide open look to it at this stage (with plenty of old rivals closely matched on numerous form-lines). Let the Bettingexpert Cheltenham Gold Cup preview deal with each horse in depth and point you in the right direction.
Foxhunters Chase Preview & Tips
Race 5, Friday 16th March 4:10
The Foxhunters is always a tricky race to gauge and the varying riding abilities of the jockeys often has a major effect on the outcome. On The Fringe was so devastating in 2015 and 2016, but Pacha du Polder sprang a 16/1 surprise in 2017 and there is no standout superstar in the hunting ranks this season.
Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle Preview & Odds
Race 6, Friday 16th March 4:50
The Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle is for conditional jockeys, and was won in 2017 by the Gordon Elliot trained Champagne Classic. Jockey bookings are important in a race of this nature, with the big yards dominating over the past few years. We highlight the key things to note in our Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle betting preview.
Grand Annual Preview & Tips
Race 7, Friday 16th March 5:30
The 2018 Grand Annual really could be anybody’s race such is the competitiveness of the race (bookmakers offering 12/1 the field at this stage). Trends and stats can always be helpful when assessing handicaps such as these so let Bettingexpert do the work for you and mark you card. Check out our Grand Annual Preview & tips to give you the edge at Cheltenham.
Cheltenham 2018 Gold Cup Day
By far and away the busiest of the four day meeting, Cheltenham Gold Cup day is a huge spectacle, the finale to an incredible four days of racing. The day gets underway with the Triumph Hurdle. There have been plenty of ups and downs for many of this year’s contingent but it looks sure to be another fascinating renewal. The second Grade One on the final card at the Cheltenham Festival is the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle over three miles. Read the Bettingexpert preview and tips below for top analysis and insight into the race.
The final Grade One at the Cheltenham Festival 2018 is the Gold Cup. A gruelling three-mile & two furlong chase for the world’s best stayers. Don Cossack was a popular winner for the Irish in 2016, landing a hammer blow on the bookmakers as he was backed down to 9/4f. Nearly all of the Gold Cup field have questions to answer whether it be staying doubts, ground doubts or general ability doubts. The Foxhunters Chase follows on from the Gold Cup, again offering an excellent opportunity for the amateur jockeys. On The Fringe was one of the most impressive winners at last year’s Festival, making up loads of ground from an impossible position to land a wholesale gamble. Get the full breakdown with the Bettingexpert Foxhunters Chase previews and tips.
It wouldn’t be the Cheltenham Festival without some terribly hard handicaps to decipher. The County Hurdle, Grand Annual and Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle all present extremely tough betting heats for punters, and stakes are best kept to recreational size given the “bookmaker friendly” shape of these races.
