Cheltenham day 2 betting tips

Now that you know where you should be dropping your cash, how about we run you through what you should be dropping your cash on?

These Cheltenham day 2 betting tips have come from careful analysis of the competitors in each race, plus we’ve listened to some tips from the biggest tipsters in the game. While we can’t possibly guarantee any of these horses will win, we believe you stand a good chance of making bank if you bet on a few of them.

Queen Mother Champion Chase

This has been one of the hardest races to call for us. At most betting sites, El Fabiolo is the odds-on favorite. Most sites believe he is unbeatable. We sort of agree. However, we’ve experienced Cheltenham before. We know that there is no such thing as an unbeatable horse, and both Jonbon and Captain Guinness will be giving him a run for his money. We expect all three of them will head into the top three.

If you really want to take gamble, stick a couple of quid on Captain Guinness to win. He has a decent chance, but his odds are long at 16/1.

Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle

There are a few horses that could be on the podium at the end of this race. We believe that Built by Ballymore is a decent bet to make here though. The odds are slightly longer than a few of the other horses but Built by Ballymore is a really on-form horse right now, and it may be worth a gamble. Remember that the CoralCup is normally a very open race, so even the longer odds horses have a decent chance.

Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase

We are really struggling to see past Minella Indo taking this race. However, if you want a slightly longer bet that still has a reasonable chance of winning, then Foxy Jacks may be a good option. It is a risk, but you wouldn’t be gambling if you weren’t willing to take those risks, right?

Champion Bumper

Every horse that we can see winning this classic race has great odds that can deliver a nice return on your cash. If you want to bet on a horse for the Champion Bumper, which is always a riot to watch, then one of these two should work for you:

-       You Oughta Know

-       Cantico

Cantico has far longer odds, almost double that of You Oughta Know, but we don’t think that he is anywhere close to the right odds considering how he has been performing this year.

Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase

Plenty of horses are in the running for this event, and every tipster seems to be suggesting something different. That’s how difficult this race is to call. However, we expect that one of these three horses will take it:

-       Blazing Khal

-       Grey Dawning

-       Fact to File

Most tipsters lean heavily toward Grey Dawning, but we are very partial to Blazing Khal. That’s where we’ll be putting our money for day 2 of Cheltenham. One thing is for sure — whoever wins the novice race is likely to be a good bet whenever they appear on the racing calendar going forward. This is the perfect race for many horses to show off their talents.
