Gallagher Novices’ Hurdle Betting

Previously known as the Ballymore, the Gallagher is a novice race with an added stamina test. It is often a contest that throws up future Stayers’ Hurdle, Ryanair Chase, and even Gold Cup contenders. In recent years, it has been dominated by Irish-trained horses and the market is headed this year by the Willie Mullins-trained Ballyburn.

Check out our Gallagher Novices’ Hurdle tips.


Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase Betting

A race perhaps better known as the RSA Chase still, this is three miles, a slog, and a real jumping test. You need to be incredibly tough to win this and be on course to be a Gold Cup-standard horse if the last few runnings are anything to go by. A small but select field will head to post this year, with several of the runners in with a live chance.

Check out our Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase tips.


Coral Cup Betting

A fast and furious handicap hurdle, a big field and plenty of luck in running needed. Like with many of the other Cheltenham handicaps, the margin to get into this race is very small, with the handicap often covering just a few pounds from top to bottom. The Dan Skelton-trained Langer Dan won this race last year and he returns to defend his crown.

Check out our Coral Cup tips.


Champion Chase Betting

The feature race on day two is a challenging two-mile test over the bigger obstacles - you need excellent jumping to win this, as well as speed and the ability to get out of trouble when it happens. A race that has seen some vintage English vs Irish clashes through the years, and we’re set for another one in 2024 with El Fabiolo clashing with Jonbon.

Check out our Champion Chase tips.


Cross Country Chase Betting

The oddball of the festival - you’ll love it or hate it. However, the quality of this race continues to grow, with past winners including the legendary Tiger Roll, who took victory in 2018, 2019, and 2021.

Check out our Cross Country Chase tips.


Grand Annual Chase Betting

This is another fiercely competitive Cheltenham Festival handicap for punters to solve. This one is over the bigger obstacles, and just like the Coral Cup earlier in the day, you don’t just need to be the best; you also need plenty of luck to win this race. This year’s renewal looks like a wide-open contest, with horses from both sides of the Irish Sea having chances.

Check out our Grand Annual Chase tips.


Champion Bumper Betting

The final race on day two is another one that is equally important on the day as it is for the future. It is the only flat race of the meeting, one for young horses just starting their journey, and often a race that the Irish dominate. Twenty-four runners are set to head to post, with a staggering nine trained by Willie Mullins.

Check out our Champion Bumper tips.


Cheltenham Festival Day 2 Overview

The second day of the Cheltenham Festival is all about the Queen Mother Champion Chase - an extreme test of jumping ability and speed.

The Cross Country Chase is a real marmite event, but it certainly offers a different angle for punters at the Cheltenham Festival and is worth watching at 4:10pm.

We’ve also got a chance to see what the future will look like, with the Champion Bumper rounding off the card, a flat race for youngsters who will be going jumping next season, and a chance for them to get an early moment in the spotlight.
