Cheltenham Festival Day 2 Races & Betting Tips
Here’s an overview of all the races and our top betting tips for Cheltenham Wednesday. Good luck!
Ballymore Novice Hurdle Betting
A novice race with an added stamina test, so often a race that throws up future Stayers Hurdle, Ryanair and even Gold Cup contenders. The Paul Nicholls trained Hermes Allen has been one of the most impressive novice runners in the UK this season, and comes here with a big chance. Check out our Ballymore Novice Hurdle tips and free bet offers
Festival Novices’ Chase Betting
A race perhaps better known as the RSA Chase still, this is three miles, a slog, and a real test of jumping. You need to be incredibly tough to win this, as well as being on course to be Gold Cup standard if the last few runnings are anything to go by. Find out more on the Festival Novices tips and betting offers.
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. See more on Coral Cup tips and the racecard.
Champion Chase Betting
The feature on day two, a quick 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. We look set for a vintage English v Irish clash this year with Edwardstone v Energumene, a race that could be a festival thriller. Make a bet for the big one! Read our Champion Chase odds for 2023 along with some great free bet offers.
Cross Country Chase Betting
The odd ball of the festival, you’ll love it or hate it. But the quality in this race continues to grow, and this year is no different with the likes of Delta Work and Galvin expected to come here and run in the race. Check out our Cross Country Chase tips, odds and offers.
Grand Annual Handicap Chase Betting
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 need an amount of luck to take this race. If your up for a flutter, take a look at our Grand Annual Handicap Chase tips.
Champion Bumper Betting
The final race on day two, and another one of those races that has equal importance on the day as it does for the future. The only flat race of the meeting, one for young horses just starting their journey, and often a race that the Irish dominate. Check out our Champion Bumper odds and tips.
Cheltenham Festival Day 2 Betting Offers
Cheltenham day two is all about the Queen Mother Champion Chase, a test of both jumping ability and speed, ran over two miles. This is the big one of the day, and our Cheltenham Betting offers page will feature free bets and offers around that race, plus others on the card.

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