With the countdown on until the start of The Cheltenham Festival 2017, it is time to start thinking about who you will be placing a bet on and which runners are offering you the best chance of bagging a great prize. The top races at The Festival include the Gold Cup, the Champion Hurdle and the Queen Mother Champion Chase which was actually named in honour of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. 2017 is set to be as nail-biting and tense as ever- with Gold Cup favourite Thistlecrack ruled out of this year’s event, it has left pundits and fans wondering just who could race to victory in one of the racing calendars most prestigious races.
So, who should you consider placing a bet on instead? With the Gold Cup attracting thousands of punters ever year, it really is the best race to bet on and luckily we are on hand to give you a couple of insider tips!
As tempting as it might be, especially for beginners, do not always bet on the favourite to win! As with any sport there are so many variations and variables at play that we recommend that even the novices amongst you invest some time into doing a bit of research. Things to consider are the horses’ history, any recent injury, whether they excel on hurdles or not, what the trainers track record is, and also- what odds the bookie has put on them. Remember, the bookie wants to win so will not risk bankruptcy if an underdog goes on to win first prize!
Another thing to bear in mind, especially if you are the sort that cannot accept defeat- is mixing things up a bit with a multiple bet. You can choose from mixed bets such as trebles and Trixie’s which can increase your chance of hitting the big time.
They say that horse racing is the sport of Kings, so if you want a bank account to match that of a king, we recommend doing your research, spreading your bets, betting on multiples, and of course- keeping those fingers crossed. Although winning is fun, half of the enjoyment comes from placing the bet and the incredible rush of watching some of the world’s finest horses race towards the finishing post. But remember, you have to be in it, to win it.
