2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Tips PT 1

We are just a couple of weeks out from the de facto championship race of the 2018 National Hunt season and the tension continues to build towards the widely-anticipated Cheltenham Gold Cup. You can expect plenty of big moments at this year’s festival with plenty of action and excitement playing out over the four day event.

There is a lot to like about this big contest as it’s really shaping up to be an impressive betting race with no genuine discernable favourite emerging yet at this point.

In many years past we’ve had a few incidents where you had a standout contender who was hovering around odds-on in the ante post markets for the bulk of the season but this year we have some really solid prices and you have to reckon that there are plenty of punters who will be pairing some of these big Cheltenham Gold Cup prices with some of their bankers that run earlier on in the Cheltenham Festival’s first few days.

This year we have seen a trend towards relatively lightly-raced contenders aiming towards the Gold Cup and that’s definitely had an impact on the pricing in the ante post markets.

As it currently stands, punters will find that Might Bite continues to reign as the outright betting favourite for the Cheltenham Gold Cup with bookmakers floating prices between a 3/1 and 4/1 margin. He has only been out twice so far this year and hasn’t actually lost a race since a falling effort in the 2016 King George that certainly made for a tough boxing day for a number of his punters.
