About the Cheltenham Festival

Before we dig into the betting, first let’s set the scene by outlining exactly what the Cheltenham Festival is. Held annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse in Gloucestershire, it’s the pinnacle of the National Hunt jump racing season.

Some 60,000 fans flock to the famous venue across the four days, while many millions more tune in via TV and live streams. They are treated to incredible sporting theater, world-class equine talent, and pulsating betting heat.

The meeting comprises 28 top-class races, worth over £4.5 million in total prize money. These races cater to all abilities, from novice hurdles and chases up to fiercely competitive handicaps and the championship Grade 1 contests.

Most focus centres on the ‘Big Four’ championship events:

Champion Hurdle (Tuesday)

Queen Mother Champion Chase (Wednesday)

Stayers’ Hurdle (Thursday)

Cheltenham Gold Cup (Friday)

These pit the very best 2 mile and 3 mile hurdlers and chasers against each other. Winners of these four races cement legacies and go down in folklore. In between the big races, we are treated to intriguing head-to-heads of emerging talent in the novice and handicap events.

Quite simply, Cheltenham serves up four days of unmatched drama and sporting theater. And there is no better place to get in on the betting action than BritainBet!

Here at BritainBet, we price up ante post betting on Cheltenham races earlier than any other bookmaker. This allows our customers to take early value on horses they fancy before the odds start to tumble.

In the build-up to Cheltenham, you’ll find ante post odds on site for all the big races right now. From Champion Hurdle odds through to Stayers’ Hurdle odds and Gold Cup odds, we have future betting markets on them all.

The Best Cheltenham Races to Bet On

The Cheltenham Festival hosts championship races across the week, but some capture the imagination of punters more than others. The Gold Cup stands above the rest as the most illustrious contest, whilst the Champion Hurdle and Queen Mother Champion Chase also carry huge prestige. These races tend to have the most betting interest.

The Stayers’ Hurdle has cemented its place as a Cheltenham highlight in recent times too. The remaining hurdlers have carved out their top level niche, and this championship event now stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the other ‘big three’ races.

Outside of the headline acts, races like the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and Arkle Challenge Trophy generate plenty of ante post-betting heat. Here is the next generation of stars announcing themselves on the big stage. Perennial handicaps like the County Hurdle and Coral Cup are furiously competitive betting puzzles to solve, too.

Choosing Best Cheltenham Bets

Here we have concluded our comprehensive Cheltenham betting guide by outlining some of the key attributes you should look out for when choosing the best Cheltenham bets:

Competitive Odds: This may sound obvious, but you’ll want to ensure the bookmaker is pricing up the Festival races with industry-leading odds. As we’ve discussed, BritainBet prides itself on offering superb ante-post and NRNB value.

In-Play Betting: The ability to bet in-running once races are underway is important. Cheltenham is so competitive that positions change frequently in the closing stages. BritainBet has you covered on this front too with a great in-play service.

Promotions: At BritainBet we serve up the best Cheltenham bets and odds enhancements in the industry.

If bookmakers can satisfy customers on the above fronts, they are likely to prove popular betting platforms. Here at BritainBet, through our early prices, streaming, and promotions, we believe we tick all those boxes better than any other sportsbook.

So if you’re looking for the ultimate Cheltenham betting experience, look no further than BritainBet. We can’t wait to welcome you during jump racing’s spectacular four-day Festival in March!
