Can Facile Vega Help Cheltenham Punters Enjoy Flying Start?

The 2023 Cheltenham Festival takes place between Tuesday 14 March – Friday 17 March, with punters hoping to beat the bookies over the four day meeting and it all starts with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on Day One.

As we do each year, we will have Cheltenham Betting tips ready for you each and every day. The research has been long in the making as we go in search of our biggest Cheltenham Festival to date!

FACILE VEGA is the favourite to land a victory in the traditional curtain-raiser, with the Willie Mullins-trained runner having been underwhelming at the Dublin Racing Festival, although the money is now coming for a horse that won last year’s Bumper and could return with a bang at Prestbury Park.

The Arkle Chase follows hard on the heels of the Supreme and there could be some merit in backing JONBON at a nice price. There’s very little to separate the horse from El Fabiolo in the betting, while Dysart Dynamo makes things an intriguing affair although Jonbon appears to have the edge.

You might not get rich backing CONSTITUTION HILL for the Champion Hurdle although the Nicky Henderson aeroplane is sure to be in many Cheltenham accumulator bets, while Day Two sees EDWARDSTONE go up against Energumene and preference is for the former when it comes to the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Day Two is jam-packed with other quality horse races and GAELIC WARRIOR looks a decent each-way shout for the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle which kicks things off on that day. We also have the Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase where the experienced THYME HILL might be able to make it count after impressing over hurdles.

See our daily horse racing tips and never go a day without professional guidance. We tip four horses per day and most of our followers put them into a Lucky 15.

The third day of the 2023 Cheltenham Festival features the Stayers’ Hurdle and it’s noticeable that FLOORING PORTER is available at a very backable price. The Gavin Cromwell-trained runner won the race twelve months ago and is capable of running a big race on his return to the course.

Blazing Khal, Marie’s Rock and Teahupoo are the other front runners in that race, while we are finding it hard to oppose SHISHKIN when it comes to the Ryanair Chase and perhaps the Nicky Henderson-trained charge will have too much for his opponents over this middle distance, with many thinking he could still win a Queen Mother Champion Chase.

On Friday of the Cheltenham Festival, we have the Gold Cup and all eyes will be on Galopin Des Champs who is the short-priced favourite to land the biggest prize of the meeting. It’s certainly hard to crab the horse’s form and there’s an argument that the market leader will win by a comfortable margin.

A Plus Tard was a hugely impressive winner last year although the Henry de Bromhead horse looks woefully out of form this time around, with BRAVEMANSGAME perhaps the best each-way value in the race and there was everything to like about the way that the Paul Nicholls-trained charge romped home in the King George VI Chase.

Make sure you look out for the best price boosts when it comes to each of the Cheltenham Festival races and secure the biggest number of places for all your each-way bets.
