The 2017 Cheltenham Festival is now less than a week away, and bookmaker bet365 have a number of offers and promotions we felt worth sharing with UK Greyhound Racing fans. The Cheltenham Festival is arguably the biggest and best horse racing meeting of the season, and there are sure to be plenty of thrills and spills during this prestigious event.
Yanworth goes for glory on day 1 in the Champion Hurdle, Alan King’s charge currently as short as 5/2 to win his very first race at the Cheltenham Festival. Yanworth is undefeated in his three starts to date this season, winning the Coral Hurdle at Ascot, the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton, as well as the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton. This seven year old’s only defeat over timber came at the 2016 Festival when beaten into second place in the Neptune by Yorkhill. The horse has gone from strength to strength since, and is a worthy favourite.
Although wonder horse Thistlecrack is set to miss the Gold Cup on Friday 17th March, the race is still the focus of a huge amount of debate. Following Thistlecrack’s defection, stablemate Cue Card was installed as the general 3/1 favourite to make amends for his fall when coming to win last year’s renewal. Cue Card hasn’t quite looked the force of old this term, although he has won two of his last three starts, coming up short behind Thistlecrack in the King George. My idea of the winner is another Colin Tizzard inmate, Native River. As tough and as game as they come, Native River has improved beyond all recognition this season, and was particularly impressive when victorious in the Welsh Grand National. He’ll be staying on when others have cried enough, and Native River can reward punters at odds of around 7/2.
