4 Horses to Bet for Cheltenham Festival 2020

Well, the Cheltenham Festival is just about here. 

I can't say I have much interest in the National Hunt because I am a Flat turf man but I do love the buzz that comes from Prestbury Park. 

So what's it all about?

Well, starting on the 10th March 2020 we will be waiting for the start of the biggest, baddest racing to get our teeth into. 

Tuesday 10th March - Champion Day 

The feature race is the Unibet Champion Hurdle 

At the time of writing, Nicky Henderson has Epatante that's priced at 7/2. 

I am quite interested in Henry De Bromhead's Honeysuckle who must have a sterling chance as an each-way wager. 

Wednesday 11th March - Ladies' Day 

The feature race the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase. 


This looks like a cracking race. It looks a tight race at the head of the betting. 

The leading trio is Nicky Henderson's Altior, Defi Du Seuil, trained by Philip Hobbs and Willie Mullins' Chacun Pour Soi. 

This looks a tough nut to crack and I will have to side with *Altior although for small stakes.

Thursday - 12th March - St Patrick's Day 

The feature race is the Ryanair Chase (Registered As The Festival Trophy). 

I'm excited by this Grade 1 race. This race is another competitive heat and the top three in the betting are as follows: A Plus Tard, trained by Henry De Bromhead, in the ownership of Cheveley Park Stud, Min, trained by Willie Mullins, while Frodon is a real hard nut for Paul Nicholls.    

I will be betting on Min to small stakes. I would love to bet on this son of Walk In The Park each-way but it looks unlikely. 

Friday - 13th March - Day Four 

The pinnacle of racing and the historic Gold Cup. Could this be a brilliant conclusion for Nicky Henderson at Cheltenham Festival 2020? 

Santini is a horse I have been watching and looking forward to here. This will be no easy task against Willie Mullins' Al Bom Photo and Delta Work for Gordon Elliott. 

I'm far from knowledgable when it comes to the National Hunt or Cheltenham Festival tipping but that is the beauty of the amazing horse racing spectacle. It brings new blood not only into the breeding line of an exceptional racehorse but new punters who are tasting victory for the first time. 

Good luck to all and be safe.
