Cheltenham 2017 St Patricks Thursday Races
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 2017 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.
