Tips for the Cheltenham Festival 2021

It’s that time of the year once again as the Cheltenham Festival approaches. The prestigious event that many look forward will be held at the Cheltenham Racecourse. The only difference this year is that there will be no spectators because of the Coronavirus pandemic, and the event will be a televised one. Like in the previous years, betting companies are ready for the punters who want to bet on the various races. Bookmakers are prepared to cater to all during the most prominent betting week, and the tipsters are working overtime to ensure the punters make the right bets on the races that will take place.

Since betting is a huge part of the festival, the companies must ensure the punters get the best offers and tips. The tips are posted weeks or even months before the Cheltenham Festival with a significant focus on the strongest races. Each race is well researched as the tipsters watch every race leading up to the event then discuss in a team before deciding on the final tips. All the twenty-eight races will have their tips, and the different bookmakers will also release the best Cheltenham free bets.

It is necessary to research the latest racing news, some of the horses participating in the race, and recent forms to get the right odds. The Cheltenham odds may keep changing, so it’s vital to keep checking the odds management tools. Some online bookies also offer bonus bets that have favorable odds, so keep an eye out for those deals. Bookmakers are ready with Tips for Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival with just a few weeks to the event. 

Champion Hurdle Day is day one, which is on Tuesday. Nicky Henderson, who has won seven times, will be hoping to add to that record with Epapante (Champion Hurdle) and Shishkin (Supreme). Shishkin will be going for the Arkle Trophy as Epapante defends the Champion crown. Sharjah, Honeysuckle, and Saldier have all beaten Petit Mouchoir and are a strong Irish challenge. The Supreme Novices Hurdle opens the meeting, which is usually an essential guide for the future stars. The Queen Mother Champion Chase, the race of the meeting, is featured on the second day. The two novice events to kick the day off are the Ballymore Novices Hurdle and the RSA Chase.

The third day of the festival involves supreme action over hurdles and fences. Paisley Park, who won the Stayers’ Hurdle last season will be back to regain his crown even with a tough rival like Thyme Hill. The Ryanair Chase which is targeted for horses who specialize at two and a half miles will see Min who won last season and Saint Calvados renew their rivalry. Faugheen could try to win at the festival as the Marsh Novices’ Chase opens on day three.

The last day of the festival, which is day four, features the Gold Cup and is the week’s busiest day. Al Boum Photo, who won the Cheltenham Gold Cup last season, will be trying for a third consecutive win. The Gold Cup is the most distinguished jump race globally, so it’s an outstanding achievement to have. Triumph Hurdle and the Albert Bartlett have proven to be challenging races to win and happen to be the two novice contests on the card. It is important to check out tips across the whole festival to get the best ideas before making any bets.
