The Champion Hurdle kicks off this year’s Cheltenham festival, which also happens to be the main race for day one, with the Arkle Trophy, and Supreme Novices Hurdle following closely. All up there are seven races throughout the day.
The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the big race of the day on Wednesday, with Sprinter Sacre easily sliding into top favorite. The Neptune Novices Hurdle is another exciting race to look forward to with this race testing the mettle of future contenders for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle. Thursday has the two main races back to back; the Ryanair Chase and the Ladbrokes World Hurdle. The World Hurdle is a popular race for punters as history shows there is always a good chance the favorite will come in, with clear cut form clearly separating the wheat from the chaff and seemingly make it hard to back a loser.
There are a total of 27 races over the four days during the Cheltenham Festival with the major money flowing into the top Cheltenham races; the World and Champion Hurdle, the Queen Mother Champion Chase, and the Gold Cup. No doubt the first race of the festival also attracts its share of the bets as punters from all over take their first plunge into the betting pool. Keeping track of all those odds can be a challenge, but the odds comparison chart makes it easy.
