Cheltenham Festival Tips

Tips to help you pick the winning horse at Cheltenham

Cheltenham Festival is widely renowned as the greatest show on turf and it’s easy to see why. It is one of the most eagerly awaited events in the horse racing calendar and a highlight of the jump racing season. Each year, thousands of racing enthusiasts descend upon Cheltenham Racecourse, with many more watching from afar, all hoping to witness a truly memorable four days of action-packed racing.

At the heart of the Festival are 28 races that showcase the very best Jumps horses from both sides of the Irish Sea. As such, it is no surprise that this event attracts some incredibly competitive betting markets, with punters keen to find their Cheltenham Festival winners across all four days. Here at Bad Man Betting, we have combed through every race card and come up with our Cheltenham tips for each race. 

When placing a tip on the Cheltenham Festival, there are a few things you should consider:


Look at the horse’s recent performance in races leading up to the festival. A horse that has consistently performed well in the past is more likely to perform well at the festival.

Jockey and Trainer

Consider the jockey and trainer of the horse. A horse with a successful jockey and trainer is more likely to perform well.


The weight of the horse can impact its performance. A horse carrying a heavy weight may struggle compared to a horse carrying a light weight.


Look at the horse’s experience. A horse that has previously run in the Cheltenham Festival is more likely to perform well than a horse that has never run in the festival before.

Weather and ground conditions

Check the weather forecast and the condition of the ground as it can play a big role on the outcome of the race.

It’s also a good idea to do your own research and read our expert analysis to get a better understanding of the horses and their chances at the festival.

How to bet on Cheltenham?

Tote Betting

Tote betting is the easiest and most popular way to bet on Cheltenham races. It involves pooling the money from all bets and sharing it among winning tickets. This means that customers don’t have to calculate odds or analyse form, making it a great option for beginners and experienced gamblers


A common type of bet where bettors make multiple selections that all must pan to be successful. Accumulators multiply the individual odds of each selection together which means that a small stake could result in a large return.

Place Accumulators

A variation on a traditional accumulator where the bet is made on a horse’s placement (usually 1-3) rather than winning the race. Although returns may be smaller than a normal accumulator, a place accumulator provides a better possibility of a return.

Lucky 15

Lucky 15 bets involve making 15 bets across 4 selections (4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 four-fold) which is combined into a single wager. As singles are included, one win can result in payout although it should be noted that the single payout may not cover the original stake.
