Tips for the Cheltenham Festival 2022

As we get ever nearer to the start of the Cheltenham Festival 2022, you will see our betting tips start to pile up on this page.

Each section will cover a different day with the highlighted Championship race of the day featured. Our team of Cheltenham pundits will guide you through the Festival including where to place your bets, the best Cheltenham bookies offers and any free bets that are available to spend on the 2022 Cheltenham Festival betting tips provided.

The Novice Chases are always exciting races to bet on at Prestbury Park and we’ll have you covered with our previews as some of the best novices in the UK and Ireland to go post in the week’s chases and hurdle races. William Mullins often does well in these races but it’s the Champion Bumper where is specialises – he also has the hot favourite for the race this year.

Whether it is the first race of the first day – the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, or the Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday 18th March 2022, our tipsters will have a best bet for that race and outline the reasons why he is selecting it.

 

Cheltenham Ante-post Bets

What we love about Cheltenham, is the number of markets out there to back. It’s often a good time to start your Cheltenham betting as the odds are generally longer due to less form being taken into account.

Right now a good market to back is the To Win Any Race At Cheltenham market which you can back with William Hill. With it being unsure as to what races horses will run, it gives you the chance to have a punt with less chance of you having to rely on a Non Runner No Bet market.

You can bet on almost every race already, however. Naturally, Cheltenham Gold Cup odds are the most popular to bet on alongside the likes of the RSA Chase, the Stayers’ Hurdle and the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

With bookmakers offering non-runner no bet already, you can bet on Cheltenham Festival ante-post tips risk-free, just make sure you use a bookmaker such as bet365, who are already non-runner no bet on Cheltenham 2022.

Cheltenham First Race Tips – Cheltenham 1.30pm

The first race on each of the four days is due off at 1.30pm and it is always the race where the bookies give out their best offers for the day. It is always an important race for punters because if you win on the first race, it sets you up nicely for betting on the rest of the Cheltenham card.

The Supreme Novices Hurdle opens up day 1 and it is a wide-open renewal this year. You can read our in-depth preview and betting tips for the Supreme Novices Hurdle, due off at 1.30pm the first race of the 2022 Cheltenham Festival or the  betting tip can be read below.

I believe the race and indeed the market will revolve around the participation of the Mullins top 2. it looks more and more like Sir Gerhard is to be rerouted to the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle so Dysart Dynamo will represent the Mullins yard here, along with Kilcruit. Kilcruit is a horse coming into favour with a number of pundits and Patrick Mullins has said that that is the horse he’d like to ride in the race given the choice.

However, my selection for this race is going to be JONBON (if Sir Gerhard does not run). The Nicky Henderson yard form is a slight concern but Jonbon has done nothing wrong so far and his quick, low jumping is perfect for a Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. He’s gone on to win the Grade 2 Howden Kennel Gate Novices’ Hurdle at Ascot and the Grade 2 Sky Bet Supreme Trial Rossington Main Novices’ Hurdle and better ground than hislast outing at Haydock puts him right in the mix.

JONBON to win the Supreme Novice Hurdle (if Sir Gerhard doesn’t run) –  Jonbon (4/1)

 

Cheltenham Gold Cup Tips

“The 2022 Cheltenham Gold Cup is a wide-open race and I have to admit my selection is one I have only just nailed my colours to, but I am becoming very keen on him.

He is currently a double-figure price and with all horses ahead of him in the betting due to run, he will go off half of what he is now. Although things fell into his lap in his last race after the strong pace collapsed, I was mightily impressed with the run, he’s on the up and I even think the extra 2f will see more improvement from him.

He will go any ground and now he’s got his head in front, it can really do a horse world of good and give them that confidence to go on.

My ante-post tip for the Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup 2022 is Tornado Flyer.”

TORNADO FLYER – 12/1 with SpreadEx (NRNB).

 

Cheltenham Festival Guide

  • When is the Cheltenham Festival?

    The 2021 Cheltenham Festival starts at 1.30pm on Tuesday 16th March.

  • What is the first race of the Cheltenham Festival?

    The first race of the Cheltenham Festival is always the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at 1.30pm on the Tuesday. This is where the best Cheltenham bookmaker offers will be and you can normally get risk free bets to spend on this race. 

  • Who has the best Cheltenham Festival betting tips?

    We think our Cheltenham tips are the best because you get all of them for free and our team of tipsters have been working throughout the jumps season to keep an eye on certain horses who will be running at Cheltenham. 

    Our in-depth previews of every race will include information about the main contenders, the trends of the race, the latest odds and most importantly, a betting tip for that race.

  • What days are the Cheltenham Festival?

    The 2021 Cheltenham Festival runs for four days:

    • Tuesday 16th March
    • Wednesday 17th March
    • Thursday 18th March
    • Friday 19th March
  • Is the Cheltenham Festival going to be on?

    At the moment, elite sport is allowed to continue but without fans, therefore the 2021 Cheltenham Festival will be on. It is likely that there will be no crowds allowed at the course for this year's festival though. 

  • Where can I watch the Cheltenham Festival?
