What are the Feature Races at the Cheltenham Festival?

Superstars are out in force at the Cheltenham Festival as racing’s elite national hunt horses meet in fascinating and fiercely competitive contests over the four days. The most valuable race of all and a notable betting contest is the Gold Cup on day four of the meeting, won by greats in the past, including Desert Orchid, Kauto Star and three-time winner Best Mate.

    Champion Hurdle - Tuesday 14 March

    The opening day of the Cheltenham Festival s up some of the greatest days racing with three Grade 1 races on the card. The Champion Hurdle is the highlight and it looks a race to savour in 2023 as Constitution Hill, Honeysuckle and Sate Man are set to clash.

    Queen Mother Champion Chase - Wednesday 16 March

    The Queen Mother Champion Chase is the highlight on day two of the Cheltenham Festival. The two-mile event tests, speed, agility and talent and Energumene is favourite to defend his title this season after shrugging off his rivals in 2022.

    Stayers' Hurdle - Thursday 17 March

    Teahupoo recently thrust himself into favouritism following a fine display at Gowran Park and looked like he needed the trip. Its is a wide open contest this year with Flooring Porter only 50-50 to take his chance.

    Cheltenham Gold Cup - Friday 18 March

    The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the most prestigious event of four days and is the ultimate prize for staying chasers. A Plus Tard was mightily impressive winning the latest renewal and will go for glory again this season. Bookmakers have Galopin Des Champs as current favourite, while Protektorat and Stattler are also among market principals.

How to use your Cheltenham Free Bets

Cheltenham Festival Day 1 Tips

Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival serves up four Grade 1s and is the ideal day to use your free bets.

The Champion Hurdle is the feature race of the day and there have been some strong moves in the market over the past few weeks with Honeysuckle pushed out to around 8-1 following her defeat in the Hatton's Grace Hurdle by Teahupoo. As a result current favourite Constitution Hill has shortened further to around 2-5 with State Man around 7-1 and Vauban at 12-1, an impressive winner of the Triumph Hurdle last year.

Tip - Constitution Hill is likely to win this but looking at place value Vauban would be the pick at 12-1.

Cheltenham Festival Day 2 Tips

Speedy two-mile chasers take centre stage on day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival and last year's imperious winner Energumene is short-priced favourite to land the prize again this season at odds of 8-11.

Among the market principals is Edwardstone who impressed when romping to victory in the Grade 1 Tingle Creek at Sandown - a key trial for the Champion Chase. Shishkin has been beaten on his last two starts following his issues related to a rare bone condition and has subsequently been pushed out to 16-1.

Tip - At the prices Edwardstone is the pick at 11-4, this promises to be a mighty duel but there is also no writing off Blue Lord at 6-1 who has won both of his starts in fine style this season.

Cheltenham Festival Day 3 Tips

The Stayers' Hurdle is the highlight of day 3 at the Festival and this looks to be a cracking race with Teahupoo the current favourite. He faces tough opposition though with Home By The Lee a strong rival and old favourite Paisley Park still in fine form.

Tip - Home By The Lee has had a perfect preparation coming into Cheltenham and is a horse on an upward curve.

Cheltenham Festival Day 4 Tips

The smartest chasers of the game are on show on the final day of the festival and this year's Gold Cup looks one of the most competitive in recent years as it stands.

Galopin Des Champs is current favourite for the big test. Another fascinating contender is Noble Yeats trained by Emmet Mullins, who was super impressive when showing a marked turn of foot to win the Grade 2 Many Clouds chase last time out. Stattler has also entered the frame for Willie Mullins after his narrow defeat to Minella Indo giving him 8 pounds.

Tip - Stattler is a young and improving horse who will stay the trip and goes well at Cheltenham. He is worth an each-way bet at the prices.
