Cheltenham Festival Tips - Cheltenham Tips 2017

Friday – Day 4, Cheltenham Gold Cup Tips, Betting Preview

Its the final Day of the Cheltenham Festival, Gold Cup Day. Here are my tips for the closing day of the Festival by Carl Harris, Professional Horse Racing Tipster from

1:30 Triumph Hurdle, Unaccompanied, Each Way, 13/2 with Ladbrokes

Always a difficult race, which Nicky Henderson has won the past couple of years. In my view this is harder to solve than recent renewals and could be another for the all conquering Irish contingent.  Highly rated on the flat she bolted up in a maiden Hurdle for Dermot Weld and then won a grade one hurdle in the style of a decent sort. A filly, not maky win this race but she gets a weigh allowance and looks a very decent type and with the Irish flying, she is the one for an each way interest.

2:05 County Hurdle, Get me Out of Here, Each Way, 16/1 with Stan James

Caution: I cant remember the last time I backed the winner of this race, a nightmare to solve. I am siding with a horse that was second at last year’s festival in the Supreme Novice’s – Get Me Out of Here. He has showed absolutely nothing since, but he has the class and ability and will is due a big race. McCoy will ride but I am playing small stakes on the basis that recent form is not encouraging but he if he finds his true form his current mark is a very winning mark. Worth an each way but modest stakes.

2:40 Albert Bartlett Novice, Hurdle, Bobs Worth, Win, 10/3 with Paddy Power, 3/1 with Ladbrokes

After a couple of tough races, this is more like it. A decent investment on Bobs Worth for me. I am backing a Nicky Henderson novice, no surprise given the volume of novice talent that currently resides at Seven Barrows. Rock On Ruby franked the form of Bob’s worth when very unlucky to be touched off on the line in a driving finish. He is my idea of a banker, if you can have a novice hurdle banker. I really like Bobs Worth and will have a decent bet here. Feel sorry for Dougie Costello who had a big chance with recession proof.

3:20 The Cheltenham Gold Cup, Imperial Commander, Win 9/2 with Ladbrokes, William Hill, 4/1 with Bet365

As much as I hate backing against Kauto Star, I can’t see him being there this time, my favourite horse over jumps of all times. Nothing would give me more pleasure to see Kauto Star win a third Gold Cup, that said you cant bet on sentiment. For me Long Run is the danger to the reigning champion, Imperial Commander, who has raced just once since winning last year. He will be tuned to the minute for this and looked impressive on a recent racecourse gallop. I think this is a great race with three former winners lining up, all have a chance with Long Run the new kid on the block. For me though it will be Imperial Commander.

4:00 Foxhunter’s Chase, Baby Run, Win 7/2 with Paddy Power

The Twiston-Davies camp didn’t have a winner last year until Friday, then they banged three in. Baby Run is their big hope for this and will be a short price, but as hard as I try I can’t see past Baby Run. Amateur riders are always difficult but young Twiston-Davies will not be an amateur for long.

4:40 Conditional Jockey’s Race, Sir Des Champs, Win 5/1 with BetVictor, Coral, William Hill

Another for Ireland here for me. Sir Des Champs trained by Willie Mullins looks to be the one here, laid out for the race and comes here full of promise, unexposed and with a big chance.

5:15 The Grand Annual, Anquetta, Win 9/1 with Boylesports, Paddy Power

The getting out stakes. Never easy and this is no exception. I have no big view on this and probably wont have a bet myself. The one I would put up as the most likely winner is Nicky Henderson’s Anquetta who could be well in. Nearly all of these will have been laid out for this, so no huge interest, but Henderson could hold the key with Anquetta.

Good Luck and I hope it has been a profitable Cheltenham Festival for you!

2017 Cheltenham Tips - Free Bets from UK Bookmakers
1. Don't feel as though you must always take the morning prices.

Unless you're following one of the really popular and influential newspaper tipsters, don't feel compelled to take a price on every horse you want to back. Remember that Cheltenham has the strongest betting ring in the world meaning that the bookmakers are hugely competitive and it takes more than a couple of thousand pounds to make an impact. My advice is to wait until the opening show at least before placing a bet, but only after — if you have the chance — monitoring the markets throughout the morning for horses that are on the move.
2. Bet two horses to win in the major handicaps rather than one each-way.
Whenever asked about betting on the National, I always advise punters to only back each-way if their selection is 33-1 or bigger. At Cheltenham it's a similar story even though the field sizes don't quite measure up to the big one at Aintree. Nonetheless many punters back horses each-way at relatively short prices when a better approach to my mind is to side with two (or more) win only. The reason for this is that the handicaps are so hotly contested that it's simply not worth clinging to the hope of getting a place payout. If you think the best your horse can do is a place then don't get involved, but if you've found a couple that you think can win back both to do just that.
3. Consider the Tote pools. totepool - FREE £5 to £25 Bet
Many supposedly 'pro' punters often don't even give the Tote a second glance — with good reason as their take-outs are higher than the bookmakers in the ring and, of course, a sizable bet will often have a massive impact on the pools. However, at Cheltenham things are slightly different. Like the betting ring, business is really healthy and if you're considering backing anything that isn't a strong favourite (or the choice of a major newspaper tipster) then it's worth taking a look at the odds on the Tote.
4. Don't try get lulled into becoming an each-way thief in the Championship races.

When the major races 'cut up' — a good example this year is going to be the Queen Mother Champion Chase — punters often try to seek out a horse with so called 'each-way value' to squeeze into the frame. The danger with this is that EVERYTHING at the Festival is trained to be at its very peak, so the chances of a rank outsider pulling off a massive shock are always going to be slimmer than they would be in one of the early-season feature races. Therefore, each-way thieves are effectively writing off their win portion of the bet straight away, whilst the very nature of the championship races at Cheltenham is that competition for the places is going to be almost as tough. The long and the short of it is only back those you honestly believe can WIN and not those that might be placed.
5. Respect previous Cheltenham Festival winners.

The Festival has unique demands compared to other meetings. The races are invariably run at a strong pace, which puts a premium on jumping ability and stamina that contrasts markedly with so many 'prep' races. The latter — particularly the two-mile hurdles and three mile chases - are run at a crawl in the early stages meaning that jumping errors don't count for as much whilst speed is more of an asset than stamina. Cheltenham turns that on it's head, just look at last year's results: Well Chief, Hardy Eustace, Maximize, Creon, Azertyuiop, Iris's Gift, Best Mate and Earthmover had all either won or run creditably at previous festivals. For that reason, I'm on two previous Festival winners — Back In Front and Azertyuiop — to repeat the dose in the Champion Hurdle and Queen Mother Champion Chase in 2017. festival tips
