Triumph Hurdle Betting

The Grade One for four-year-old runners, one for the future, but also a great race for the present too. A race where Ireland have dominated before, and appear to have a great chance of winning again. Check out our Triumph Hurdle tips, odds and offers.

County Hurdle Betting

The first of two incredibly competitive handicap hurdle races to solve on the final day. This is a two mile test, combining both jumping ability and speed, while you’ll need luck in running as we’ll have the maximum field here. Check out our Country Hurdle tips, odds and offers.

Albert Bartlett Novice Hurdle Betting

A staying hurdle race for novice hurdlers who are at the start of their careers. Plenty look to have a chance in what could be a wide open renewal, but the majority of those runners are from Ireland, who again look set to dominate this. Check out our Albert Bartlett Novice Hurdle tips.

Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting

The feature race of the entire meeting, a grueling test of more than three miles, you need to stay, have speed to get ahead, and of course, jump around the course well. Last year’s winner A Plus Tard returns, as does the 2022 Grand National winner Noble Yeats, but the betting market favours Galopin Des Champs above them both, who fell at the festival last year as a novice, and comes back looking for revenge in the biggest race of them all. Check out the latest Gold Cup odds.

Foxhunters Chase Betting

The Gold Cup for amateurs is how this race is known, though in recent times, many professionals have been involved in this race, including Willie Mullins, who won the contest last year with Billaway, and comes back here with a chance of winning again. Check out our Foxhunters Chase tips, odds and offers.

Mares Chase Betting

A new race at the festival, again something else to try and improve the mares program and keep them in training for longer. This is a test of jumping ability as a chase contest, with Irish runners at the head of the market. Check out our Liberthine Mares Chase tips and betting offers.

Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle Betting

The final race of the Cheltenham Festival 2023, and a tough puzzle for punters to solve. This is a big field handicap, for conditional jockeys, and often one where we see at least a couple of betting gambles on what could be well handicapped runners. Check out our Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle Tips.

Cheltenham races day 4 is all about the Gold Cup. It is not only the feature race of the day, but the feature race of the Cheltenham 2023 festival.

Winners are held in high regard, and jockeys and trainers have all said in the past that the feeling of bringing a Gold Cup winner back into the packed winners enclosure at Cheltenham is something that cannot be replicated elsewhere.

The race immediately following the Gold Cup is the Foxhunters Chase at 3:40pm, a race for amateur jockeys and run over the same distance as the Gold Cup (so it’s also widely known as the ‘Amateur Gold Cup’) – it always provides a thrilling spectacle.

First up on Day four is the Triumph Hurdle at 1.30pm where we will see some future stars of National Hunt racing, with this race kicking off our tips for Chelten
