Our Cheltenham 13.30 Tips is to punt on Sir Gerhard.

Cheltenham Tips Summary – Stage Star’s trainer has made it clear he expects this rising star to run a huge race and we agree. 9-1 looks generous and he should at least hit the frame.

Cheltenham 14.10 Tips – The Festival Novices Chase (formerly the RSA)

The second race on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival at 2:10 pm is the Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase (The Festival Novices Chase) over 3 miles on the Old Course at Prestbury Park, with twenty obstacles to be jumped.

Our Cheltenham 14.10 Tips is to place a wager on Gaillard Du Mesnil.

He is a big price and needs to improve his jumping to win this Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase but has been improving going over the fences.

Splitting the talented Bob Olinger and Bravemansgame at Cheltenham Races last year, he clearly has course form and now being stepped up in trip could be perfect as bred to relish the longer distance.

Currently, 16-1 many bettors will be including this horse as part of their each-way Lucky 63 Bets and EW Heinz Bets.

The sportbook bookies that currently have Gaillard Du Mesnil at 16-1 best odds are:

  • Bet365 Bookie
  • Unibet Sports
  • Quinnbet
  • Betway Sports Betting

Cheltenham Tips Summary – Gaillard Du Mesnil has Cheltenham form in the bank. Although he will have to brush up his jumping, he is in good hands and granted a clear will be bang there at the last.

Cheltenham 14.50 Tips – Coral Cup

The third race on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival at 2:50 pm is the Coral Cup which is a Grade 3 National Hunt hurdle event. It is a hugely tricky handicap and picking the winner is incredibly tough.

Our Cheltenham 14.50 Tips is to wager on Gowel Road.

  • Cheltenham 14.50 NAP – Gowel Road
  • Cheltenham 14.50 NB – Indigo Breeze
  • Cheltenham 14.50 Long Shot – Christopher Wood

The online betting brands that currently have Gowel Road at 12-1 best odds are:

  • Paddy Power Sports Betting
  • Betfair Sportsbook
  • Unibet Betting Site

Cheltenham Tips Summary – As always the Coral Cup looks a minefield and we suggest small wagers and each wat bets. Saying that we have strong word that Gowel has a few pounds of improvement and that could prove key.

Cheltenham 15.30 Tips – The Champion Chase

The fourth race on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival at 3:30 pm is the Queen Mother Champion Chase which is a Grade 1 National Hunt steeplechase held for horses aged 5+. The race is now titled the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase, thanks to a sponsorship agreement with the internet betting company Betway.

The feature race of Day 2, this is one of the best races of the season and typically throws up thrilling races and creates champions and all-time favourites.

Our Cheltenham 15.30 Tip is to bet on Shishkin who is one of the bankers of the whole meeting. Even though his odds will be short. The selection had a titanic battle in the Ascot Chase with Energumene and we expect Shiskin to once again prove the stronger for the Nicky Henderson yard.

  • Cheltenham 15.30 NAP – Shishkin
  • Cheltenham 15.30 NB – Energumene
  • Cheltenham 15.30 Long Shot – Hitman

The online betting websites that currently have Shishkin at 4-6 best odds are:

  • Paddy Power Betting App
  • William Hill Betting App
  • Betfred Betting App
  • Boylesports Betting Site

Cheltenham Tips Summary – The Champion Chase is one of the high-lights of the Festival and indeed the whole season. This year’s race promises to be another classic with the much aniticpated rematch between Shishkin and Energumene after their Ascot battle. We confidently expect Shiskin to maintain his unbeaten record, with the ground more in his favour and increased fitness.

Cheltenham 16.10 Tips – The Cross Country Chase

The fifth race on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival at 4:10 pm is the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase which is a cross country steeplechase run by the National Hunt horses aged 5+. It is run a distance of around 3 miles and 6 furlongs on the Cheltenham Cross-Country Course, and there are thirty-two obstacles to be overcome during the race. It is a unique test not run on the traditional Old or New Course and the fences all offer something different; from hurdles, to fences, banks and even a replicable of the Canal Turn from Aintree.

Our Cheltenham 16.10 Tips is to wager on Tiger Roll. He’s a national favourite, and we all know a dual Grand National winner. He’s run well in the race before, which has often been a pipe-opener for the big one at Aintree. This year he apparently won’t be going for the race, so you can imagine this will be his final race and the main aim. He will bring down the curtain if he wins.

  • Cheltenham 16.10 NAP – Tiger Roll
  • Cheltenham 16.10 NB – Delta Work
  • Cheltenham 16.10 Long Shot – Easyland

The online betting brands that currently have Tiger Roll at 5-2 best odds are:

  • Paddy Power Sportsbook
  • Betfair Betting App
  • Betfred Betting Site

Cheltenham Tips Summary – This could well be Tiger Roll’s final race of an amazing carrer. His owner has said the 12 year will not go for The National and this is likely to be his final race. He’s a horse with character, a will and a engine and he’s well suited to this unique Cheltenham test. There won’t be a dry eye in the house if he wins. And we think he will. Come on tiger.

Cheltenham 16.50 Tips – The Grand Annual Chase

The sixth race on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival at 4:50 pm is the Grade 3 National Hunt steeplechase – the Grand Annual Chase.

Our Cheltenham 4.50 Tips is to bet on Buddy Rich. Trained by Gordon Elliott he recently told the Racing Post in his recent stable tour that Buddy Rich was his only Grand Annual horse who has plenty of experience for a novice chaser, with six chase starts under his belt this season.

Buddy Rich official best Racing Post Rating (RPR) was achieved at Cheltenham Racecourse so the selection has a course form which is important when predicting the outcome of races at Prestbury Park track.

When choosing your picks in handicap races it is always important to try and find a selection who might have more up his sleeve than the form suggests and although beaten several times this year, this horses he was runner-up to are class performers.

Buddy Rich is one the best bets of the Cheltenham Festival at a massive 9-1 price tag.

The online betting sites that currently have Buddy Rich at 9-1 best odds are Paddy Power Horse Racing and Boylesports Horse Racing.

If wagering money at Paddy Power you might want to check out some special offers on Paddy Power Money Back Second or the Paddy Power Best Odds Guaranteed Bonus.

Cheltenham Tips Summary – Gordon Elliott knows how to win at Cheltenham and has a superb record in the handicaps. Buddy Rich has been selected as his one runner and there’s not doubt he could have had more runners if he’d wanted. That speaks volumes and he’s our selection in a tight race.

Cheltenham 17.30 Tips – The Champion Bumper

The last race on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival at 5:30 pm is the Champion Bumper which is a Grade 1 National Hunt flat event over a distance of approximately 2 miles and half a furlong. This race has been farmed in recent years by Willie Mullins and it has become one of the most eagerly anticipated and talked about races.

Our Cheltenham 17.30 Tips is to wager on Facile Vega. He is the son of the mightly mare Quevega, a Cheltenham legend in her own right. Her son has continued her legacy with two stunning wins already. He’s going to

The online sportsbook websites that currently have Allaho at 4-5 best odds are:

Cheltenham Festival Tips Summary – Allho would not be out of place in the Champion Chase or Gold Cup and this interminate distance looks idea. He won’t have it all his own way though, Melon and Mister Fisher will keep him honest but he should have too much talent and win.

Cheltenham 15.30 Tips – The Stayers Hurdle

Our Cheltenham 15.30 Tips is to wager on Paisley Park. He himself is a former winner. Whilst he can hit a flat spot in his races, he really hits the after-burners where it matters and saves his best for the infamous Cheltenham hill. He faces some stiff opponents but he’ll be hitting the line hard,

Cheltenham Festival Tips Summary – In an open looking Gold Cup, where last year’s winner Minella Idaho hasn’t shown much form this year and other rivals’ form seems in and out, Protektorat looks a solid option. He already has great form in the book but with age on his side and possible improvemnet he shoud give his running and will go close.

Cheltenham 16.10 Tips – St James Place Festival Hunters Chase

The fifth race on the final day of the Festival at 4:10 pm is the St James’s Place Festival Hunters’ Chase which is a steeplechase for amateur riders. It is sometimes known as the Amateur Gold Cup and is run over the same course and distance. It is often run a frantic pace, with many of the jockeys failing to judge the pace and going too fast.

Last year’s winner of the Kim Muir was one of the greatest ever performances witnessed at the Cheltenham Festival. Trading at 1000-1 in running she produced the impossible by outclassing all 20 rivals.

Against her own sex, Mount Ida is the class act in the race and her only quirk is the ability to jump right over the fences.

With the very talented Davy Russell predicted to take the ride he should be able to settle her into a good rhythm.

  • Cheltenham 16.50 NAP – Mount Ida

Cheltenham Festival Tips Summary – The final race of the 2022 Cheltenham Festival is another hard one, a tight handicap for conditional jockeys. Wagers should be kepy to a minimum but Langer Dan is a solid option.

Prestbury Cup Tips

The Prestbury Cup is the annual yearly competition between the English and Irish to see who has the most success at Cheltenham.

Ireland are a short-priced favourite to win the Prestbury Cup 2022, so strong is their team, it almost has to be considered the banker bet of the Cheltenham Festival for many punters.

Ireland are predicted to win by a landslide and retain the Prestbury Cup trophy. They  have favourites across all the big championship races, whilst they are alwats shrewd in the handicaps.

All of the 28 races at Cheltenham are considered as important as the next in the Presbury Cup, so winning the Champion Hurdle or Queen Mother Chase still only gets one point, the same as the less-prestigious handicap races.

At British Racecourses, we believe the Irish challengers have strong chances in all of the races; Ireland to win the Prestbury Cup is a betting certainty.

What Factors Influence Tips at Cheltenham 2022 Festival?

Here are some factors that directly can influence the tipster’s opinion on the outcome of races at Cheltenham Festival:

Ground Conditions at Cheltenham

Some horses absolutely love the mud and perform much better in heavier ground conditions. Whilst others prefer better and nicer ground.

In light of that, the ground conditions (or “going” as it is officially known) can hugely sway the betting experts’ opinion on which racehorse is valuable in the betting markets.

Checking the form guide of the selections performances on the ground they are likely to encounter is key in predicting the winner of the race.

What factors influence tips for cheltenham festival

Distance of the Race

Some horses are specialists over a certain distance and checking the form of the selection’s previous results over the distance can helps you know whether the pick can stay the distance or is attempting it for the first time. Or whether the trip is likely to be too short.

Horses with previous wins at the distance, therefore, gives reassurance to professional sports betting tipsters that the pick will be fine over the specific distance of the race.

Official Rating of the Horse

In handicaps, the weight of the top-weighted horses can make it very difficult to win around Cheltenham’s Prestbury Park because in these competitive handicaps there are usually several horses in plenty in hand according to the official ratings. This means they are carrying lighter weights.

The betting experts will try to find the blot in the handicap where a selection could be improving or has pounds in hand in his current handicap mark. Find out more about handicap races in our guide.

Course Form

The handling of the racecourse is very important for racehorses.

The famous quote “horses for courses” applies here, with some racehorses not liking the uphill finish at Cheltenham.

Tipping a horse with previous course form is important because some selections who have never run at Prestbury Park could not like the undulations and uphill finish.

There are two tracks at Cheltenham Racecourse, the Old Course and the New Course. Both courses are testing left-handed circuits with an uphill finish to test stamina.

At the Cheltenham Festival, both the Old Course is used and the New Course for selected races.

Horse Form

The form of the horse is obviously very important. What have they achieved so far on the racecourse? Is there room for improving or have they hit their peak?

Most horses who do well at Cheltenham have strong season form heading into the race, putting up strong performances in their previous runs.

The Jockey

The horse racing jockeys who rides the horse is a huge factor. Some jockeys are naturally better than others.

It can show you the yards’ number one chances (if the lead jockey chooses to saddle the horse), and there are multiple entries.

The jockey can also make a huge difference in the positioning of the races, strength in the finish (if needing to get down low and push the horse out) as well as being able to judge pace, get a horse to jump and the winning post.

Trainer Form

The horse racing trainers recent form is important to how well the fancied horses will run at the Cheltenham Festival.

Punters selecting the Cheltenham Top Trainer betting event look closely at the current form of the yard.

A horse racing yard in form is certainly a positive signal that sport betting tipsters study in the analysis of their picks.

Look for Value in the Betting Odds with Your Cheltenham Tips

The hype of a horse can snowball into being long odds on favourite and having no value in the betting ring.

When wagering money on selections, they need to offer some value for money in the starting price odds.

Successful gambling on the horses is achieved by finding value in the betting odds on picks, meaning that they outrun their SP value.

Beat the Market with Ante-Post Odds

Early morning on race day the betting markets are not mature or settled.

If you can beat the bookie by getting your ante-post tip bets on you can find real value when taking the current odds on the horse.

The “early bird catches the worm” in the betting parade and trying to source the biggest odds for your hot pick is important.
