Cheltenham Tips 2022

If you are a horse racing fan, then the Cheltenham Festival is among the biggest events in the calendar. Thousands of bets are placed on the meeting, whether it be an each way wager on the Cheltenham Gold Cup or accumulator on each race on Day 1. Cheltenham racing tips are found on a large number of websites leading up to the Festival. However, not all are worth reading. 

Our Cheltenham betting tips are written by industry experts, who have a proven track record over the years of predicting winners. Our Cheltenham tips are created using up to date and relevant information. This includes the form of runners and riders, track condition and history of trainers/owners. Of course, no tips for Cheltenham races can guarantee success. However, our Cheltenham tips will put punters in a strong position ahead of the Festival getting underway.

All tips for Cheltenham found at SportsLens are available free of charge. As they are backed up by data analysis, we can safely say that they are as accurate as possible too. Our Cheltenham betting tips cover all four days, including highly anticipated Cheltenham Gold Cup 2022 tips. 

Cheltenham Day 1 Tips

Cheltenham Tips

Action at Cheltenham this year gets underway on Tuesday 15th March. Known as Champion Day, day 1 features four Grade 1 races. The Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Arkle Challenge Trophy, Champion Hurdle and Mares’ Hurdle are among the races to attract the interest of punters. For many, Champion Day is the most enjoyable of the entire festival. It should therefore not be a surprise that Cheltenham day 1 tips are very much in demand. 

Starting with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, which is seen as a breeding ground for future Cheltenham stars, Constitution Hill and Dysart Dynamo are among the frontrunners at present. However, having won by 8 lengths at Leopardstown on Boxing Day, Willie Mullins’ Sir Gerhard looks good value at around 7/1. 

Elsewhere, the Arkle Chase looks like being a competitive affair on day 1. Having won its last five outings, Mullins’ Ferny Hollow is a strong contender. However, the seven-year-old will be tested to the limit by the likes of Blue Lord and Edwardstone. 

The Champion Hurdle is the focus of attention for many on day 1. Coming with a prize pool of over £330,000, the Grade 1 race was won by Honeysuckle last year. The Henry De Bromhead trained runner also won the Punchestown Champion Hurdle in 2021, making it the clear favourite for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham. 

Champion Day Races

  • Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 1)
  • Sporting Life Arkle Challenge Trophy Novices Chase (Grade 1)
  • Ultima Handicap Chase (Grade 3)
  • Unibet Champion Hurdle (Grade 1)
  • Close Brothers Mares’ Hurdle (Grade 1)
  • Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3)
  • National Hunt Chase (Grade 2)

Cheltenham Day 2 Tips

Cheltenham TipsLadies Day is held on Wednesday, with the Queen Mother Champion Chase standing out from the 7 races. Henry De Bromhead’s Put the Kettle On won the race in 2021, making it a horse worth backing at 20/1. It is Nicky Henderson’s Sheshkin who is the firm favourite though, having won at Kempton on Boxing Day, before following it up with another success at Ascot in January. Energumene, Chacun Pour Soi and Nube Negra are among the other frontrunners in the ante post odds.

Cheltenham Wednesday tips would be nothing without a discussion on the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle. The first race on day 2 could well be the most competitive, with there seemingly being little to choose between Sir Gerhard, Dysart Dynamo and Stage Star, among others.

Elsewhere, Galopin Des Champs appears to be the clear favourite to win the RSA Novices’ Hurdle. The French six-year-old won the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham in 2021, with this being one of Willie Mullins’ many potential winners this year.

Ladies Day Races

  • Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 1)
  • Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase (Grade 1)
  • Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3)
  • Queen Mother Champion Chase (Grade 1)
  • Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase (Class 2)
  • Grand Annual Handicap Chase (Grade 3)
  • Champion Bumper (Grade 1)

Cheltenham Day 3 Tips

Cheltenham Tips

The two feature races on Thursday are the Stayers’ Hurdle and Ryanair Chase. 12/1 shot Flooring Porter won the Stayers’ Hurdle in 2021, with the Irish racehorse being available at around 5/1 to make it consecutive Cheltenham victories. Klassical Dream beat Flooring Porter by 2 lengths at Leopardstown on December 28th, meaning that it is little surprise that William Mullins’ 8-year-old is the 11/4 favourite. Champ is also in the running, having recently returned from a 274-day break.

In the Ryanair Chase, Allaho will be looking to make it back to back successes, having won by 12 lengths last year. Having come out on top at both Puchestown and Thurles over recent months, this could well be another Grade 1 victory for Mullins at Cheltenham. Shan Blue and Mister Fisher are among the outsiders worth keeping an eye on, with Cheltenham Thursday tips being among the most difficult to create accurately. 

Day 3 kicks off with the Grade 1 Marsh Novices’ Chase, while the Pertemps Final is one of the most highly anticipated handicaps in the calendar. 

St Patrick’s Day Races

  • Turners Novices’ Chase (Grade 1)
  • Pertemps Final Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3)
  • Ryanair Chase (Grade 1)
  • Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle (Grade 1)
  • Paddy Power Plate Handicap Chase (Grade 3)
  • Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 2)
  • Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase (Class 2)

Cheltenham Day 4 Tips

Cheltenham Tips

Cheltenham Gold Cup tips dominate on the final day of the Festival. Despite having won the Gold Cup from A Plus Tard last year, Minella Indo is labeled as an outsider this time around. However, with A Plus Tard having finished as runner-up at Leopardstown in December, race winner Galvin looks a good option at around 9/2. Friday Cheltenham tips suggest that Mount Ida and Royale Pagaille are the outsiders to consider.

Cheltenham tips day 4 will also include the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle and Triumph Hurdle, which are both Grad 1 races. Both are notoriously difficult to predict, with Ginto and Fil Dor being the current favourites, respectively. 

Gold Cup Day Races

  • JCB Triumph Hurdle (Grade 1)
  • County Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3)
  • Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 1)
  • Cheltenham Gold Cup (Grade 1)
  • Festival Open Hunter Chase (Class 2)
  • Mrs Paddy Power Mares Chase (Grade 2)
  • Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle (Class 2)

How To Take Advantage Of Ante-Post Betting at Cheltenham

Ante post betting on Cheltenham involves wagering on runners before race lineups have been confirmed. This is a popular method of Cheltenham betting for many. However, it is worth placing such bets with bookies offering Cheltenham Non Runner No Bet offers. Just because odds are available, doesn’t mean that the horse will actually ultimately feature in the race. So, knowing that you will get your stake refunded in this event is nice to know. The following tips will also help punters take best advantage of ante post Cheltenham Festival markets:

  • Remember that those placing ante post bets on Cheltenham will likely be ineligible for best odds guaranteed. This promotion is offered by many bookies. However, with an ante post bet, the price is set in stone in most cases.
  • Consider the each way odds before placing ante post bets. For example, some bookies will pay out at odds of ¼ for placed finishers, while others will pay out at ⅕. 
  • Place ante post bets as soon as possible. The odds on such markets rarely get more appealing as the Festival draws closer. So, as soon as ante post Cheltenham markets become available, strike!

How to Make the Most of Tote Betting at Cheltenham

Tote betting is different to traditional fixed odds gambling. Here, each bet placed on a particular market adds up to create the pool. All winning punters are then paid from this pool. This method of betting is hugely popular with horse racing, the Cheltenham Festival in particular. But just how can you best take advantage of tote betting at Cheltenham?

Cheltenham Tips

A number of tote bet markets are available surrounding the Cheltenham Festival. Totewin, Toteplace, Toteexacta and Totetrifecta are among the most popular. Be sure to sign up with a bookie that has a good reputation for tote betting. The likes of Paddy Power and Betfair excel here. Remember that backing an overwhelming SP favourite, something that millions of others will potentially bet on, will not result in great returns. So, look at each-way alternatives, especially on some of the less high profile Cheltenham races.

Meanwhile, in order to win a Tote placepot, there are a number of additional factors to consider. It is worth backing a few horses in each race. Going with just one in each race is unrealistic, to say the least. Meanwhile, while it is nice to think that you can pick a 50/1 surprise winner, betting on outsiders is not the way to go here.

How to Spot the Best Outsiders at Cheltenham

Many punters dream of backing the next Norton’s Coin, who won the 1990 Cheltenham Gold Cup, despite being priced at 100/1. However, doing so is far more difficult in reality. Shishkin, Monkfish, Envoi Allen and Chacun Pour Soi are among the short-priced runners expected to feature at Cheltenham this year. However, it is almost certain that there will be a surprise winner or two over the four days. 

The first factor to consider is the trainer in question. Irish duo Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott are certain to have a whole host of winners at Cheltenham in 2022. However, it is always worth looking at some of their less fancied runners. In 2019, Mullins’ 50/1 Eglantine Du Seuil won the Mares’ Novices Hurdle. If the going is good or good to soft, then there could well be similar upsets this time around. Horses associated with trainers such as Nicky Henderson, Henry De Bromhead, Dan Skelton, Paul Nichols and Jessica Harrington are also well worth keeping an eye out for. 

Meanwhile, looking at the recent form and past horse racing results of entrants is another good tactic. Especially in less high profile Cheltenham races, consider backing horses that, despite having come close on several occasions, are still on the hunt for their first win. Many runners have made a name for themselves on the biggest stage of all in the past. 

Mistake to Avoid 

When betting on the Cheltenham Festival, many are guilty of falling into a trap that will ultimately see them lose money. So, before placing your first bet on the event this year, make sure that you are aware of these common mistakes:

Don’t Bet on All Races

With 28 races making up the Cheltenham Festival, there is an almost constant stream of horse racing action to look forward to. However, we advise punters to avoid betting on each and every race. Even the betting customers with an expert knowledge of the sport will struggle to place successful wagers across the board. So, target selected races instead, focusing on runners and riders you are familiar with.

Don’t Bet With Your Heart

For horse racing enthusiasts, it is likely that you regularly follow the progress of particular runners and riders. However, remember that there is no room for sentiment when it comes to Cheltenham betting. So, bet with your head, rather than your heart. Punt on horses that you think will win, rather than those that you hope will win.

Learn from Past Errors

If you have bet on the Cheltenham Festival in previous years, then you will likely have an understanding of what mistakes to avoid this time around. So, draw on past experiences when wagering on races in 2022.

Avoid Overloading on Tips

With Cheltenham tips being available on many platforms today, it is easy to confuse yourself by reading too many. Stick to respected tipsters. Look at their track record, as well as what experience they have within the horse racing industry.

Ultimate 5 Hot Tips for Cheltenham

Regardless of whether you follow Cheltenham tips or not, there are some key tips when betting on the Festival. Again, these do not guarantee profits. However, they will put punters in the right frame of mind to beat the bookies:

Do Your Own Research

Cheltenham tips should deliver all of the information surrounding races that you need. However, it is still worth carrying out your own research into competing runners and riders. There is no shortage of information available online today. With horse racing being one of the most popular sports to bet on in the UK, many bookies provide useful pre-race details.

Monitor the Odds

Cheltenham Festival odds are introduced months in advance by most bookies. As such, prices change on a regular basis. It is up to punters to work out when is the best time to back their favourite. Meanwhile, some online bookies offer best odds guaranteed. This promotion is very helpful. 

Set a Budget

Regardless of your objectives, it is vital to set a budget for your Cheltenham Festival betting. Remembering that entertainment is the no.1 reason to wager on the event, your budget should be a small proportion of your disposable income. Either set yourself a budget for each day or the Festival as a whole. Stick to your budget, no matter how appealing a potential bet appears. You may also want to check out Cheltenham free bets

Watch Races Live

There is nothing quite like watching races from the Cheltenham Festival live. Races are generally packed with action, while the competitive nature of the event makes for a fascinating spectacle. Selected online bookies stream Cheltenham races. Those watching may even gain an insight into how upcoming races will pan out. 

Consider Outsiders

With some Cheltenham Festival races, there can be an overwhelming favourite. However, whether it be with a win or each way bet, it can often be worth backing an outsider instead. With this horse racing betting event being known for its shocks, you could well be pleasantly surprised.

Bottom Line on Cheltenham Betting Tips

There is no doubt that the best Cheltenham tips can be of benefit to punters betting on this high profile horse racing event. Whether you are looking to place ante post bets or wager on race day, taking advantage of expert opinions is always worthwhile. Our Cheltenham races tips are written by those with expert knowledge of the Festival. 

Tipsters have a proven track record of backing winners, whether it be Cheltenham day 1 tips or Cheltenham day 4 tips.
