Including Champion Hurdle, Ryanair Chase, Gold Cup and more – THE INFORMANTI

Cheltenham Festival offers punters plenty of betting with 28 races with some short priced favourites looking to justify their odds.

In fact there were 12 favourites that won last year and 2023 might have a similar rate.

With betting options open for one of the biggest weeks in horse racing there’s still value to be had.

In previous years many of the big Grade 1 races looked decided before March but now, there’s open contests throughout with only a few big favourites really inspiring hope to justify short prices.

Cheltenham Festival racing tips

Champion Hurdle

Constitution Hill 4/11

There was just better than evens on Constitution Hill a couple of months ago, before he cemented his ability in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle and Christmas Hurdle in November and December.

Winning both by a wide margin to the great Grade 1 winner Epatante back in second place.

He shot up from a rating of 148 to 173 in those three races and remains a horse that has tremendous stamina and coasting speed.

Turners Novices’ Chase

Mighty Potter 6/5

Mighty Potter also offers incredible value and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him go off odds-on on the day.

The Gordon Elliott-trained horse was a big winner at Dublin Racing Festival beating Adamantly Chosen by over eight lengths.

Takes his chase record to three out of three and will be one of the most-backed favourites this festival.

Ryanair Chase

Shishkin tipped at 11/10

Energumene in the blue silks was overtaken in the final stretch by Shishkin in January 2022’s Clarence House Chase

Shishkin, trained by Nicky Henderson, returned to his best last time out when upped in trip from his usual 2m to a 2m5f trip.

Winning the Betfair Chase Grade 1 by an astonishing 16 lengths to Pic D’Orhy and Fakir D’oudairies.

Prior to that win the once 177-rated horse was pulled up at Cheltenham Festival’s Champion Chase and then came a disappointing third behind Edwardstone on his season debut in December.

But that return was incredibly eye-catching and the wind surgery conducted in January has clearly done the trick.

Wouldn’t be out of place in numerous races at the festival this year but this race will give him a leading chance, by a distance.

Ryanair Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle

Luccia 5/2

Luccia is a promising mare from the top yard at Seven Barrows, trained by Nicky Henderson.

She’s already won three from three rules races which includes her hurdle debut win at Newbury back in November.

She’s one from the yard that’s highly regarded, just like Constitution Hill last year.

There’s a long way to go though but her Class 1 mares win was comfortable and she can only get better on her next few runs.

Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup

Galopin Des Champs 13/8


Galopin Des Champs, with Paul Townend up, jumps in the Turners Novices’ Chase on day three of the Cheltenham Racing Festival

The showpiece and biggest race of all sees a decent price on another favourite, Galopin Des Champs, also trained by Mullins.

The now seven-year-old was almost guaranteed the win last year in the Turners’ Novice Chase but he dramatically fell at the last fence which gifted the win to Bob Olinger.

Galopin was 12 lengths to the good when jumping the last and would have undeniably extended that lead had he jumped it successfully.

He showed his true potential in April winning at Fairyhouse by 18 lengths.

Before beating even tougher rivals next time out at Punchestown back in December, winning by 13 lengths to Fakir D’oudairies.

Now rated 175, there doesn’t look a better favourite at odds against throughout the entirety of the festival.
