Tips for the Cheltenham Festival 2021

As we get ever nearer to the start of the Cheltenham Festival 2021, 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 bookies offers and any free bets that are available to spend on the 2021 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 19th March 2021, our tipsters will have a best bet for that race and outline the reasons why he is selecting it.

 

What Cheltenham Ante-post Bets to Place

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 2020.

Non-Runner No Bet EVERY Cheltenham Festival Race

CLAIM BONUS!CLAIM BONUS!
Applies from 10am 6th January 2021. No rule 4 will apply until after the final declarations. T&Cs apply.
RF 10: New customers offer, limited to one per person. If you’ve previously had a Paddy Power account, you will not qualify for the offer. Place your FIRST bet on any Sportsbook market and if it loses we will refund your stake in CASH. Max refund for this offer is £10. T&Cs apply.

 

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, as we get closer to the Festival you will be able to see an in-depth preview and betting tips for the Supreme Novices Hurdle, due off at 1.30pm the first race of the 2021 Cheltenham Festival.

 

Cheltenham Predictions

You can also be sure that the Cheltenham Festival will be a fantastic week of racing, but what makes it even better is if you can bet on some winners. With our 2021 Cheltenham predictions, we will help you every step of the way and hopefully find you some well-reasoned tips by predicting what will happen in each race.

There are plenty of stats available for the Cheltenham races because there are a number of strong form-lines across the horses running. The likes of Presenting Percy, Altior, Delta Work and Paisley Park all have Cheltenham Festival form and that helps when picking predictions.

Our Cheltenham races predictions will all be well researched and as the Festival start gets closer, you can see all of our tips – kicking off with the day 1 tips including the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at 1.30pm.

The big race takes place on Friday of the Festival and our in-depth Cheltenham Gold Cup predictions will pick out a win and each-way bet for the gruelling test around the undulating course at Prestbury Park.

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?

    The Cheltenham Festival will be live on ITV Racing on all four days, and also on Racing TV. There will also be daily Opening Show programmes on at 9.30am every morning on ITV4. You cal also get live streams of the Cheltenham races through all major bookmakers including bet365 and Paddy Power.
