The Cheltenham Festival 2023 is not that far away now! 

The long list of horses for each race is whittling down as entries get confirmed and a clearer picture starts to emerge from the fog of uncertainty.

The ante-post era is nearing an end and race cards are ready and waiting with the online bookmakers. There are lots out there at the moment, but which ones should you be using? Read on to find out and view the latest odds and Cheltenham festival tips made by industry experts.

Secure NRNB As Early As You Can

bet365 has been the market leader in terms of non-runner, no bet this year. Keep an eye out for when they go NRNB – This is usually around January, from our experience. They are one of our recommended bookmakers for placing bets on the Cheltenham races.

bet365 takes its horse racing seriously and offers a very good racing section within its app. They also live stream every UK and Ireland race, which users can watch as long as they have placed a bet in the last 24 hours, or have a funded account (regional restrictions and terms apply).

Anyhow, back on to our Cheltenham Festival tips, and here is how the busy schedule of races stacks up:

Cheltenham Festival Tips And Favourites

Race Odds & Each Way Selections

We are keeping our eyes peeled, not only on the betting markets but also on well-known horse racing publicists such as the racing Post and on social media to see what other horses outside of the favourites are causing a stir. Previous jockeys and self-professed professional tipsters are all giving their valuable insight into who they think to have a chance. We are collecting this data and summarising it for you in the tables below.

This should aid in quickening up the process of seeking out potential value horses in the markets. The tables are not tracking live odds. They are monitored weekly to ensure accuracy. Therefore, we have included links to get straight to the live odds for each race on the bet365 app.

We have chosen bet365 here, as not only do we recommend them as an all-around bookmaker, but they are aiming to be the best price on Cheltenham races across the board. Therefore, you know you will be checking out competitive prices when viewing the live odds from this page.

bet365 is also offering non-runner no-bet, as well as focussing on their strong standard offerings throughout the festival. They are well worth checking out if you haven’t done so already. Tap on the banner above from your mobile device if you want to experience what the bet365 platform looks and feels like.

Key to the table:

  1. Fav = shortest priced horse.
  2. 2nd Fav = Second shortest priced horse.
  3. Tipped = Fancied by the tipsters, ex-pros, and pundits, outside of the top two favourites.
  4. LIVE ODDS = Go to the live odds page on bet365 for that particular race.
