Cheltenham Festival Betting Update: The Latest Market Movers & Groovers

Khal The New Albert Bartlett Favourite After Another Cheltenham Victory

Blazing Khal has jumped to the head of the betting in the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle. The Irish-trained runner won on his hurdling debut at Galway in October and has since made two successful raids on Cheltenham. 

Stepped up to three miles for the first time on his latest outing, Charles Byrnes horse appeared to relish the added distance when winning last Saturday. Bookmakers were impressed and they clipped him three points into 5/1 with bet365* for the Grade 1 contest in March.

Stattler Wins on Chase Debut and Halves In Price 

Sent off favourite for last season’s Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at the Festival – but only finishing fourth – was the Willie Mullins’ trained Stattler

This six-year-old has now gone chasing and he won on his chase debut at Fairyhouse earlier this month. An easy winner there, he has now gone favourite for another Festival race – next March’s National Hunt Chase

6/1 is the best odds currently on offer; Stattler was double those odds when the betting on the amateur riders Grade 2 chase opened.

Could Be Out of This World

In winning the recent JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle by over five lengths, Interne De Sivola entered the Triumph Hurdle betting market at 20/1. However, his victory saw another horse slashed from 14/1 into 8’s.

That horse is In This World, a French-bred trained by Dan Skelton. His price move came when form students spotted this horse had spanked Interne De Sivola by nine-lengths at Warwick when the pair made their jumps debut at the start of November.
