Your Best Bet for the Cheltenham Festival

The 2022 Weatherbys Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide, again written by Paul Ferguson and Guest Authors*, 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:

  • Breeding Angles, by Jess Stafford
    Jess took an in-depth look at the sire Jeremy, highlighting Appreciate It (winner of the Supreme Novices') and Sir Gerhard (winner of the Weatherbys Champion Bumper) as 'two of the more exciting sons of Jeremy to be heading to Prestbury Park'. In total, Jeremy had 11 runners at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, four of which were successful - the other pair being Black Tears (11-1) and Belfast Banter (33-1).

  • National Hunt Chase preview:
    "Galvin looks to be a leading contender this year and he has the right kind of profile. Runner-up in the novices' handicap at last year's festival, the seven-year-old was having his eighth chase start when winning at the course in October, and he arrives here fresh having earlier won a Grade 3. Rated in the 150s, he ticks plenty of boxes." Galvin WON @ 7-2

  • Ballymore Novices' Hurdle preview:
    "Better ground should suit, as he doesn't look short of speed, and he boasts the ideal profile for this race, being a Point-to-Point, bumper and Grade 1 novice hurdle winner." Comments about Bob Olinger who WON @ 6-4 (but was readily available at 3-1 at the time of going to print)

  • Dawn Run Mares' Novices' Hurdle preview:
    "His representation is likely to continue (owner Kenneth Alexander), and his pale blue and white spotted silks should be taken very seriously in mares' only events." Alexander won the Dawn Run with 5-1 shot Telmesomethinggirl


  • Proschema "currently rated 131, it will be disappointing - and surprising - if there isn't a decent prize in him from that mark" he WON a handicap at Cheltenham in April (7-2) and Aintree in May (6-5)

    Up For Parol "he should be capable of winning a race or two before the season is out." WON a maiden hurdle at Wetherby (March) and a novice hurdle at Ffos Las (April)

    "......arriving at Aintree a fresh horse will surely enhance his claims. Whilst a trip to Ireland is a possible option, I would be surprised if Nicholls didn't primarily target Aintree, with prize-money to be won towards the trainers' title, plus the likelihood of meeting less of Irish Challenge." Clan des Obeaux WON the Bowl @ 5-2

    "The unbeaten Monmiral is set to bypass the Triumph Hurdle with Aintree's Anniversary 4YO Hurdle in mind, a race which Nicholls has won on three occasions since 2003, with Le Duc, Zarkandar and All Yours." Monmiral WON @ 10-11 (having been second-favourite overnight)

And many, many more throughout the week.
