Cheltenham racecourse is the home of one of the most famous jumps racing events in the world – the Cheltenham Festival – which is run each year in the middle of March and often referred to as the ‘Olympics of jumps racing’.

- Day 4: St Patrick’s Day brings Gold Cup Day, the pinnacle of the Festival with the Cheltenham Gold Cup as the main race.
2023 Cheltenham Festival betting tips
In terms of Cheltenham betting tips, the picture will become clearer once trainers have declared their horses for specific races and the forecast is known. For now, there are a number of short-priced favourites that will inevitably garner interest and have plenty of money riding on them. Here’s some potential accas to consider:
- Day 1: There are a number of warm favourites to kick us off, so look to Facile Vega in the Supreme Novices Hurdle, Constitution Hill in the Champion Hurdle and Gaillard du Mesnil to take the National Hunt Chase in an 8/1 treble.
- Day 2: The second day may well prove to be a good one for the bookies, with no horses available to back at odds-on at the time of writing. The most likely winners as things stand are Gerri Colombe in the Brown Advisory and Delta Work in the Cross Country Chase, which gives us an 9/2 double
- Day 3: There are a number of strongly fancied horses to consider, with Mighty Potter in the Turners Novices Chase, Shishkin to win the Ryanair and Luccia for the Mares Novice Hurdle all combining in a 9/1 treble.
- Day 4: Lossiemouth is expected to get the final day off to a winning start in the Triumph Hurdle, while taking Galopin des Champs in the Gold Cup and Allegorie De Vassy in the Mares Chase makes it a 18/1 treble.
