The Cheltenham Festival is rapidly approaching and we have got an unmissable lucky 15 betting tip across the four days of Cheltenham races in March.
The 2014 Cheltenham Festival is shaping up to be one of the best in recent memory and today’s Cheltenham tips looks at an each-way lucky 15 bet across the four days, starting with the very first race on Tuesday 1th March, the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.
The Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is always one of the most competitive races on the Cheltenham card and the 2014 renewal looks no different with the current favourite, Irving, at 10/1 with most bookmakers. We are looking elsewhere for our opening leg of the lucky 15 though and going with Vatour (10/1 with Betfred) following his recent improvements and he has the speed to get up the Cheltenham hill. He won a novice hurdle at Punchestown by 11 lengths and he is our opening selection for our each way lucky 15 betting tip for Cheltenham.
The second leg keeps us on the opening day and it is the superstar Hurricane Fly (10/3 with Betfred) to win the 2014 Champion Hurdle. He made a sensation return to action by winning the Ryanair Hurdle in late December and is now favourite for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham ahead of My Tent or Yours and Jezki. The reigning Champion shows no signs of giving up his crown and he is our second Cheltenham tip for the lucky 15.
We have to wait until Thursday for the third leg of the bet and it comes in the Ryanair Chase in the shape of Benefficient (7/1 with Betfred). The Tony Martin trained horse won at Lepordstown earlier in the season and does not shirk a battle, potentially giving him the edge up the gruelling Cheltenham hill. He won the Jewson at last year’s Cheltenham Festival and comes into the 2014 Festival in great shape. Benefficient makes up leg three of the lucky 15 tip.
Our final leg rests on the race of the week, the Betfred sponsored Cheltenham Gold Cup and we are siding with First Lieutenant (10/1 with Betfred) who was only beaten by a length and a half in the Lexus Chase by Bobs Worth. He finishes 2nd behind Cue Card in the Ryanair at last year’s Cheltenham Festival and at odds of 10/1 (Betfred) he is the perfect final Cheltenham tip for our ante-post each-way lucky 15 bet.
