Your Best Bet for the Cheltenham Festival
The 2021 Weatherbys Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide, again written by Paul Ferguson and produced in association with Sporting Life, is the complete guide to The Festival, with every fact, stat and trend covered to help you make the most informed bets throughout the best week of the year.
Last year’s guide featured gems like these:
- On the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle winner, SHISHKIN: “visually, he has been very impressive and looked a potential future star at Newbury”
- The Champion Hurdle winner, EPATANTE: “Made giant strides this season, winning a handicap off 137 before impressively stepping up in class to land the Christmas Hurdle… she will receive 7lb from the boys and ticks the ‘unbeaten this season’ trend, as well as representing Nicky Henderson and JP McManus, both of whom have a fine recent record in the race. The Christmas Hurdle has also proven to be a fine recent trial for the Champion Hurdle”
- On Mares’ Hurdle winner, HONEYSUCKLE: “Going back up in distance is sure to suit and, personally, I think this is the right race for her”
- The Champion Bumper winner: "At the beginning of the season, I was excited to see how FERNY HOLLOW would do under Rules, such was the impression he created when winning his maiden Point by 15 lengths. He was too keen on debut at Fairyhouse, before again filling the second spot behind Forged In Fire, with the pair 17 lengths clear. He was again too free in the early part of the race and once he learns to relax, he could take a big step forward”
- The RSA winner: "In terms of natural ability, CHAMP has it in spades and remains a high-class prospect"
And many, many more throughout the week.
