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.
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.
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.
