Cheltenham tips - odds & racecards

When it comes to jump racing, the Cheltenham Festival is the main event to take place across the entire season. Happening annually in March, many national hunt horses will begin their journey to the festival at the beginning of the jumps seasons. This means top betting odds and informative Cheltenham Tips on who will make their mark at the event will already be on offer.

Alongside horse betting odds, racecards will also be available for punters to take a look at and see which former winners will attend the Cheltenham Festival in 2023.

These informative racecards also offer a detailed analysis of several factors which can affect a race, including form, other useful performance stats and going conditions.

Before heading to Cheltenham racecourse, many punters like some sort of insight into which horses can cause an upset or if a favourite is worth their shortened odds, which is why we’ll have betting tips from expert tipsters on all of the features races and some selections within the remaining 24 races across the four-day festival.

Cheltenham Betting Odds

With many horses featuring in races across the jumps season and most of them managing to land a win, it’s no surprise that their betting odds fluctuate after the key trial races. In fact, many of the betting odds for the four days of racing are made instantly available so that you can instantly browse the ante-post betting markets in preparation for next year.

Many of the ante-post betting markets for the feature races of the season, such as the Gold Cup, are featured in the Cheltenham Festival betting odds within our horse racing selections. But we've also listed the other key Grade One races you stake.


Cheltenham Ante Post Betting

If you prefer to place your bets on the best jump horses before the Cheltenham Festival begins so that you're able to take the best odds and potentially have a larger win at the end of the week, then take a look at the ante-post price offer.

These early prices will highlight how well a horse has done going into Cheltenham, and if a runner in any of the 28 races picks up a win or suffers a setback, the odds on the page will be changed accordingly.

As the date of the meeting approaches, these pages may see more action as punters will become more aware of which runners will miss the meeting in Gloucestershire, and if some jockeys are in top form, the price on offer within the odds will change. All of the ante-post markets offer the same win, each way and place betting options, so you'll have many to choose from, whether you're betting on the second day or the last of the four days.

However, if you're looking to place your ante-post bets within the market on offer for each race, we've included a quick guide:

  1. Make your selection
  2. Add the runner to your bet slip
  3. Stake your chosen amount
  4. Place your bet

If your horse wins at the Cheltenham Festival, the winnings will be added to your account.


The best horses to bet on at Cheltenham Festival

Before placing a bet on the races across the four days of the Cheltenham Festival, it's important to know which stats and information can have an impact on your Cheltenham bet.

Each race at the event will be open to a runner with a specific skill set who can handle one of the specific courses. This means you're less likely to see the Champion Hurdle winner head to the Cheltenham Gold Cup the following year.

However, when looking at the betting markets for each race, the favourite will often have the best form, and if you're looking at horses from Ireland, the majority of those will rank highly. When it comes to each race, the Cheltenham odds can be influenced by whether a horse won in the race before, so if they're heading back to Cheltenham for a second attempt at a race or they're looking to add another win to their tally, this will influence your Cheltenham bets.

Another influencing factor regarding Cheltenham Festival betting will be whether a horse has picked up a recent victory before heading here. This could be at the trials meeting or another race which feeds into the Festival, such as the King George VI Chase or the Clarance House Chase.

As well as performance and training, other aspects of a horse's pedigree can apply when looking through the stats. With the sport, there is a specific age at which runners will perform to the best of their ability on the race course.

History can show that older horses, at ages such as ten or above, may be outdone by their younger counterparts, so this is also a key factor as you come to place a bet.


The best jockeys to bet on at Cheltenham Festival

Heading into the 2023 Cheltenham Festival, many eyes will be on the top jockey trophy, which can be awarded at the end of the week.

Many punters will use Tuesday as a stepping stone on which jockeys to follow for the remainder of the week, as they usually have good form heading into the Festival.
