The Cheltenham Festival is less than two weeks away and we have got ante-post betting tips for day three of the 2014 Cheltenham Festival, on Thursday 13th March.
The feature race of the third day is the World Hurdle where Big Bucks will be looking to regain his crown following a long injury lay-off, but there is also the Ryanair Chase, the Pertemps Final and the opening race on Thursday, the JLT Novices Chase.
We have got two betting tips for day three of the Cheltenham Festival that could be backed in a tempting double ahead of the Festival.
For our first Cheltenham tip on day three we are looking at the very first race and have a betting tip for the JLT Novices’ Chase. Our selection is the current market leader in the betting, WONDERFUL CHARM (6/1 with Winner). The selection was last seen just before Christmas when he finished second to Oscar Whiskey at Cheltenham and that run was a valiant effort considering he was conceding weight all round and was only beaten by a half-length. The Paul Nicholls inmate was very impressive on his chasing debut and looks a solid jumper over the obstacles. At odds of 6/1 we think Wonderful Charm has a fantastic chance of getting us off to a winning start with this day three betting tip for the Cheltenham Festival.
Our second betting tip for Thursday at the 2014 Cheltenham Festival comes from the Ryanair Chase and in what looks a wide open race we are siding with our long term fancy BENEFFICIENT (6/1 with Sky Bet). The selection was last seen at Leopardstown just after Christmas as he won the Dial-a-Bet Chase and his battling qualities were obvious for all to see as he fought off Hidden Cyclone by ¾ length. The attitude of this horse is enough to get him home up the Cheltenham hill and this was no more evident than in last season’s Jewson when he was heading coming off the final bend before battling back to beat Dynaste and Captain Conan.
If you bet on the two Cheltenham tips for day three in a double you will get odds of 48/1 at Sky Bet for both horses to win and new Sky Bet customers who open an account through us ready to bet on the 2014 Cheltenham Festival will also get a free £30 to use.
