Weekly News Ahead Of The 2020 Festival
Day 1 – Champion’s Day – Tuesday 12th March
Ready yourself for the “Cheltenham Roar”, as punters go wild at the start of the opening race, The Supreme Novice’s Hurdle at 1.30PM.
As per every day during the week, racing begins at 1.30pm and the Supreme Novice Hurdle opens proceedings on the first day with the two-mile novice chasers then competing in the Arkle trophy.
Big businesses will sponsor the Champion chase so keep an eye out for leading pools/bookmaker at the great location.
Laurina might be hoping to snatch victory in the Champion Hurdle, the feature race, but faces the challenge of current title holder Buveur D’air.
Day 2 – Ladies Day – Wednesday 13th March
The two-mile Queen Mother Champion Chase dominates the second day of the festival with Altior hoping to add this prize to his Arkle dominance from the last few seasons – a sign to certainly watch out for. He is expected to be opposed by Footpad or Un De Sceaux who has been a Cheltenham regular for several years now.
Day 3 – St Patrick’s Day – Thursday 14th March
The Ryanair Chase and Stayers Hurdle are the most prominent races of the third day with Monalee hoping to snatch victory in the former event.
Penhill was a shock win at the 2018 Stayers Hurdle, with Mullins also fielding Faugheen this time around. Likely competition in the Stayers Hurdle is going to come from Paisely Park, who will be suited to the ground alongside many other horses lacking the necessary speed for the shorter distance hurdle races.
Day 4 – Gold Cup Day – Friday 15th March
Although the final day of the meeting begins with three hurdle races, the Gold Cup is arguably the most prestigious contest of the four-day betting festival and the National Hunt season.
History shows that often the favourite doesn’t always win the Gold Cup. This year’s challenging horse is Presneting Percy, who is proven on all types of ground unlike Might Bite. He’s currently priced at 9/2 with several bookies, at the time of writing (20th Feb 2019).
Native River from the Colin Tizzard stable, who was third in 2017 and last year’s winner, will be the one to beat in the Gold Cup this year. Ante-post betting odds had him priced around 5/1 with Nicky Henderson’s horse looking hard to beat this year.
Cheltenham Is One Of The Biggest Horse Racing Festivals In The World
Although there are many lucrative meetings at weekends and during the festive season within the national hunt calendar, it is the mid-March Cheltenham Festival which is regarded as the annual championships with featured horses trained to achieve peak fitness for the four-day highlight of the jumping season.
Until 2005, the Cheltenham fixture had traditionally been a three-day midweek meeting attracting thousands of spectators from Ireland. Then a fourth day was introduced for the Friday with the Irish still arriving at the racecourse in numbers, but with more punters from various parts of England now converging on the Cotswolds as they are captivated by the extra publicity and betting opportunities available.
Quite often, the arrival of the festival often coincides with the first signs of Spring weather, although snow has sometimes fallen on the racecourse, but what actually will be awaiting the punters on each day of the 2017 meeting…
Trainers To Watch This Year When Using Your New Customer Offers
Gordon Elliott has the most successful horses at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival when he saddled six winners. Plenty trainers to keep an eye on this year, including Nicky Henderson and Willie Mullins as always.
Factors To Take Into Account When Betting On The Festival
Ground conditions – During mid-March, there is often a tendency for underfoot conditions to be much easier than during the depths of winter. ‘Good’ ground often prevails and this does not always suit horses campaigned with success in the mud (‘soft’) during the preceding months. Save your sign up offers and free bets to use at times where the going makes betting a lot more unpredictable.
The famous Cheltenham hill – The final two furlongs of each race features a stiff uphill finish with horses racing successfully at less undulating circuits such as Newbury and Haydock not necessarily suited by the demands of this track. Horses which have won previously at Cheltenham should be noted.
The Bookies – There is so much competition among the bookmakers, even on the High Street, that it pays to watch the offers available. Money back when the favourite wins is one to note especially with several odds-on favourites winning in recent seasons from the Willie Mullins yard. For anybody wishing to use Ladbrokes or William Hill in Cheltenham town centre, it is worth bearing in mind that these shops can become very busy during lunchtimes of festival week.
