Betting Online at The Cheltenham Festival with William Hill

The 2018 Cheltenham Festival will take place from 13th - 16th March. The four-day horse racing spectacular, held at the Cheltenham Racecourse in Gloucestershire, will showcase 28 of the most important national hunt races of the year. There are seven races each day, with the first race of Cheltenham 2018 (Supreme Novices’ Hurdle) going off at 1.30pm on Tuesday 13th March. The Gold Cup (3.30pm, Friday 16th March) is arguably the most important race at Cheltenham. The prestigious chasing event was won by Sizing John in 2017. Jessica Harrington’s star gelding is likely to be among the betting favourites once again for the 2018 Gold Cup.

Cheltenham Festival 2018 Guide

Each day at Cheltenham has a feature race, which are counted among the most important events in the world of horse racing. These are the Champion Hurdle (Champion Day, 13th March), Queen Mother Champion Chase (Ladies’ Day, 14th March), World Hurdle (St Patrick’s Day, 15th March) and the Gold Cup (Gold Cup Day, 16th March). However, there are several other Grade 1 races that have become fan favourites. These include the Neptune Investment Hurdle, JLT Novices’ Chase and JCB Triumph Hurdle.

Regardless of the race, Cheltenham Festival features some of the best runners and riders in national hunt racing. Jockeys like Ruby Walsh and Nico DeBoinville will continue to write their names into the Cheltenham history books in 2018, whereas star horses like Douvan, Apple’s Jade and Un de Sceaux will be backed to become winners of multiple Cheltenham races.

2017 Cheltenham Betting Results

Cheltenham 2017 was noted for some shock results. Two of the most highly fancied runners pre-festival - Douvan and Unowhatimeanharry - each suffered a shock defeat in the Queen Mother Champion Chase and World Hurdle respectively. Special Tiara (Champion Chase) and Nichols Canyon (World Hurdle) triumphed in those races, but expect Douvan and Unowhatimeanharry to be back with a bang 2018.

Buveur D’Air landed the win in the Champion Hurdle, which was one of the most competitive of the festival. However, the highlight of Cheltenham 2017 was undoubtedly the Gold Cup race. The lead changed several times before Sizing John ran out the winner ahead of Minella Rocco and Native River.
