    Day 1 Betting Offers & Specials – Tuesday 13th March

    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. Footpad is regarded as one of the Irish bankers of the Festival in that race. Big businesses will sponsor the Champion chase so keep an eye out for leading pools/bookmaker at the great location. Faugheen from the same stable will hope to regain his Champion Hurdle crown in the feature race, but faces the challenge of current title holder Buveur D’air. Our guide to the opening Tuesday is above.

    Day 2 Betting Offers & Cheltenham 2018 Specials – Wednesday 14th 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 triumph from last season – a sign to certainly watch out for. He is expected to be opposed by Irish horse Min this 2018 with last year’s favourite Douvan also a likely contender despite not racing during the current campaign. Check out our 2018 betting guide above for Cheltenham ladies and gentlemen!

    Day 3 Betting Offers & 2018 Specials – Thursday 15th March

    The Ryanair Chase and Stayers Hurdle are the most prominent races of the third day with Un De Sceaux hoping to retain his title in the former event. He is likely to be opposed by fan’s favourite Cue Card. Veteran horse The New One is expected to contest the Stayers Hurdle alongside many other horses lacking the necessary speed for the shorter distance hurdle races. Today is likely to be busy for tips, accommodation and a battle to get tickets. Check the telegraph website to take advantage of any new 2018 offers that might not be any sign of at Cheltenham itself

    Day 4 Gold Cup Betting Offers & Specials – Friday 16th 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. 2017 winner Sizing John is a likely contender as is the leading three miles novice chaser from last season Might Bite. Additional challengers in this race include Native River from the Colin Tizzard stable, who was third in 2017, plus several capable horses from Ireland.

    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. Read our article on trainers to note 2018 over here.

    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.
