Cheltenham Festival odds are a guide to a horse’s chances of winning a race and odds are displayed in two ways - fractions and decimals:

  • Fractions: if your winning horse is priced at 4/1 and you place a €1/£1 bet, you will receive €4/£4 back plus your initial €1/£1 stake. Your total return is €5/£5.
  • Decimals: the same odds of 4/1 are displayed as 5.0. This is 4 divided by 1 plus your €1/£1 stake. As above, your total return is €5/£5.

When is The Best Time to Bet on Cheltenham?

The biggest concern that customers will have when it comes to the Cheltenham Festival betting odds is when they should make their wager. The leading sportsbooks offer Cheltenham betting odds 12 months before the first race of the Festival, the Supreme Novices‘ Hurdle, gets underway.

But, what important factors should players take into consideration before making a bet on some of the biggest races of the week?

What to Consider Before Betting on Cheltenham 2022

Champion Hurdle

The Champion Hurdle is the feature race on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival. The Champion Hurdle odds show the formidable duo of Honeysuckle and Rachael Blackmore as odds-on favourites to defend their Champion Hurdle crown. Superstar mare Honeysuckle is unbeaten in fourteen runs for trainer Henry De Bromhead and will be very hard to beat.

Second favourite in the Cheltenham betting odds is last year’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle winner, Appreciate It, who hasn’t been seen since winning the Festival opener last year. Trained by Willie Mullins, this talented eight-year-old is among those at the top of the market along with his ultra-consistent stablemate Sharjah, who finished second in 2020 and 2021.

Trainer Nicky Henderson has an excellent record in the Champion Hurdle and has trained the winner on eight occasions. He is represented by Epatante who won this contest in 2020 and his high-class mare can be found towards the top of the Cheltenham odds.

Queen Mother Champion Chase

The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the feature race on the second day of the Festival. This race will bring together the leading two-milers in training. It has been dominated by trainer Nicky Henderson in recent years.

This year’s renewal will be a race to savour as Henderson’s Shiskin and Energemene, trained by Willie Mullins, reoppose following their swashbuckling duel at Ascot in the Clarence House Chase in January. It was Shishkin who landed the prize that day and the latest Cheltenham odds show he is hot favourite in the betting to see off his arch rival once again.

Chacun Pour Soi is among the market leaders in the Cheltenham betting odds and while he disappointed in last year’s renewal, he comes into this off the back of a sparkling performance at the Dublin Racing Festival.

Nube Negra for the Dan Skelton yard may be one to consider for each-way value. Skelton has always thought very highly of this likeable type but he must put a poor run behind him when last seen finishing fourth in the Tingle Creek at Sandown.

Stayers’ Hurdle

Thursday‘s Stayers’ Hurdle is the feature race on day three of the Festival and is the battle of the top-class staying hurdlers. There are a number of horses in contention and this year’s contest is set to be a fascinating one.

Last year’s winner Flooring Porter is back to attempt to win this prestigious prize for the second consecutive year for trainer Gavin Cromwell and the Cheltenham Festival betting odds currently show him as favourite to take the prize.

Emma Lavelle’s Paisley Park bounced back to form last time out in the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham and he is looking to regain his Stayers’ Hurdle crown having taken the spoils in 2019.

Champ, who finished second to Paisley Park in the Cleeve Hurdle, but pulled up in last year’s Gold Cup is towards the top of the Cheltenham betting having found his form back over hurdles

Don’t rule out Lisnagar Oscar who won this contest in 2020 and has good form at Cheltenham, he can be found further down the betting odds and offers some nice value in the race.

Gold Cup

Friday at the Cheltenham Festival is all about the feature race of the meeting, when racing enthusiasts are searching for value among the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2022 odds. The Cheltenham Festival odds show A Plus Tard as favourite to land the spoils for last year’s winning trainer Henry De Bromhead. Galvin, who headed A Plus Tard in the Savills Chase at Leopardstown in December, is second favourite in the Cheltenham betting odds.

Last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, Minella Indo, is back to attempt to follow up on last year’s victory. Following a disappointing run in the King George at Kempton in December, he made amends in the Irish Gold Cup, where he finished second. This could be a perfect preparation for this blue riband event and his odds for Cheltenham are attractive for those seeking value.

Protektorat is the most fancied of the British challengers and his trainer Dan Skelton is delighted with him in the lead up to the Gold Cup. Irish Gold Cup winner Conflated and King George winner Tornado Flyer shouldn’t be ignored at bigger odds in the market, having proven they have the class to perform on the biggest stage in National Hunt racing.
