Cheltenham Headline Act for Day 3
It’s day three of the Cheltenham Festival and today’s headline act is Stayers Hurdle favourite Unowhatimeanharry. Last year’s Albert Bartlett winner bids to make it back-to-back Cheltenham successes when he takes on a 12-strong field at 3.30pm today. The short-priced favourite has long been considered one of the bankers of the Festival and Oddschecker users have piled in on Harry Fry’s 9yo in the ante-post markets with 29% of all bets on the market leader. A win for the favourite would certainly have Oddschecker punters smiling with 43% of them backing him in the last 48 hours and 19.2% of all accas placed this week including him too.
The former Champion Hurdle winner Jezki is next best with the punters, 16.7% of ante-post punts have been on the Jessica Harrington-trained runner with 5% of all bets from over the Irish sea in Dublin. 2015 winner Cole Harden received just 8.6% of all ante-post bets but has been more popular in the last 48 hours with 18% of stakes placed on the second favourite.
