Here is the first part of today’s Cheltenham Festival Day 1 betting preview. There will be plenty in the way of insight and specific instructions on what bets to make and where to place them to avail the very best bookmaker offers.
William Hill have done it again, like last year in the opening race of the festival they’ve decided to have a loss leading promotion of offering 7 places each-way for the Supreme.
This to our eyes is the very best horse racing promotion of the year and must be taken advantage of.
Those each-way place terms give us punters the edge here almost no matter how we went about our bets but with our selections and that promotion, it’s a good chance to start the day strong.
We are choosing to draw a line through 7 of the runners priced 33/1 or bigger and don’t like the claims of Shishkin given the ground. The soft and arguably heavy ground will also blunt the speed of Abacadabras. Asterion Forlonge is a solid favourite but we have two tips for you at bigger prices.
Fiddlerontheroof is going to be fine on today’s soft ground and his most recent piece of work at home was lethal. Somewhat overpriced at 13/2 probably due to not being trained by Mullins, Elliot or Henderson, he is must bet material.
Chantry House is the Henderson second string but there are several shrewd judges in that yard who think this lad is better than the 2nd favourite Shishkin. At 6/1 and having done nothing wrong in his races this season, he represents good value and can be backed.
