How to Use Your Cheltenham Free Bets
The great thing about the Cheltenham Festival is there’s so much to bet on. This major horse racing meeting takes place across four consecutive days from Tuesday, 15 March to Friday, 18 March.
There are seven races each day on the Cheltenham Festival schedule with iconic championship races and equine superstars on show. That gives punters plenty to go at across the four days with 28 events in total on the track.
When joining one of the new Cheltenham betting sites available, they may ask you for proof of identity. That is completely normal, and uploading documents is a quick and easy process.
Cheltenham Festival Betting Tips & Predictions
In the opening Supreme Novices Hurdle on Tuesday, 15 March (1:30), Jonbon looks great value. He cost a packet at the sales and is a full brother to two-time Cheltenham Festival winner Douvan. Big things are expected of Jonbon from the Nicky Henderson camp and, after two Grade 2 victories, he looks well worth a crack at the highest level.
Tiger Roll is a familiar to name to fans of horse racing and he seeks a sixth Cheltenham Festival victory in the Cross Country Chase on Wednesday, 16 March (4:10). Already a three-time winner of this contest, he comes alive in the spring.
Party Central looks big each way value in the Grade 2 Mares Novices Hurdle on Thursday, 17 March (4:50). She cruised to victory in a Dublin Racing Festival handicap last time out, so looks more than ready for the step up in grade.
In the feature Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday, 18 March (3:30), Galvin can make it back-to-back wins at the Festival. We know he stays really well after landing the National Hunt Chase at this meeting last year. Galvin has since taken his form to a new level with a big success over Christmas and come in for plenty of market support since.
