6 things you MUST know before betting at the Cheltenham Festival
by man o bong on 01 Mar at 08:26
What probably wont happen, cant happen, is very unlikely to happen at the Cheltenham Festival! My long time colleague Billy121 has already touched on trends and indeed how misleading they might be and has worked out some wonderful figures for them, here I am looking specifically at negative trends to consider for the week! Just 1 of the last 23 Christmas Hurdle winners has won the Champion Hurdle in the same season My Tent Or Yours stalked The New One round Kempton and got his nose in front between the final hurdle and the line Ruby Walsh has not won a single Chase race at the Cheltenham Festival in his last 34 rides! We have to go back to his winning ride aboard Kauto Star in 2010 to find his last chase success at the Cheltenham Festival. Zero return from 34 chase rides since. Only..

Cheltenham Cross Country Chase Winners
by nors on 28 Feb at 22:37
I like the look of this race on previous years form with the prevalence of shorter priced horses that make the frame. In the last 9 years 14 of the 36 win and placed horses were 6/1 or under. Two favourites won in the last 9 years at 5/2 and 7/2 and in another five seasons the winners SP was 7/2 4/1, 4/1, 11/2, 13/2. Only in two years could you say there were big surprises with winners at 25/1 and last year when Big Shu won at 14/1/. Remember this is a 16 runner Cheltenham handicap where every horse is trying for its life, so to my eyes this short price runner prevalence needs to be taking into account. 2005 -2013 Cross Country Chase results 2005 -2013 1. Spot Thedifference 4/1 2. Luzcadou 22/1 3. Mrs Be 20/1 4. Lord..

The Champion Chase is the biggest race of the entire National Hunt season for 2 mile chasers, the race takes place on day 2 (Wednesday) of the Cheltenham Festival. With the recent news of reigning Champion Chaser Sprinter Sacre missing the race, just how open does the race look now? Sprinter Sacre won last years Champion Chase by 19 lengths, beating Sizing Europe with Wishfull Thinking a further 6 lengths back in 3rd place. Sprinter Sacre was pulled up on his seasonal reappearance at Kempton in December a later scan revealed that he was suffering from an irregular heartbeat, Nicky Henderson seemed quietly confident that the horse would be fit enough to take his chance but has since decided against it and will probably not run this season. WIDE OPEN RACE The race now looks wide open and with only 16 horses still remaining, i..
