The Cheltenham Festival 2014 is less than three weeks away and we have found three ante-post Cheltenham tips for day one of the Festival that could bash the bookies.
The opening Cheltenham races of day one throw up some enthralling contests and we start our Cheltenham tips with the very first race, the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and we are sticking with the horse we have been backing since his odds of 10/1 earlier in the year.
That horse is VATOUR (3/1 Stan James) who leapt to favourtisim with a great performance at Leopardstown that seen him see off The Tullow Tank. That victory has seen Vatour shoot to the head of the Supreme Novices Hurdle betting market ahead of Irving and The Tullow Tank.
Jockey Ruby Walsh has said Vatour is the in-form novice ahead of the Cheltenham Festival and should be the one to beat in the opening race.
Our second Cheltenham tip for day one comes in the very next race where we are with DODGING BULLETS (6/1 Bet365) in the Arkle Trophy. The selection is third in the latest betting odds behind favourite Champagne Fever and Trifolium. Dodging Bullets was last seen chasing home Module at Newbury on heavy ground and that performance over the bigger obstacles gives us faith he is now ready to perform to his best around Cheltenham.
The final Cheltenham Festival betting tip for day one comes in the feature race, the Champion Hurdle and we are backing the reigning Champion HURRICANE FLY (3/1 Betfred) to do the business and leave his rivals up the Cheltenham hill. The Willie Mullins stable star is joint favourite in the latest betting with The New One and his Leopardstown performance in the Irish Champion Hurdle suggests he is at his best and ready to win the Champion Hurdle for a third time.
The odds for our Day One Cheltenham tips as a treble are a massive 112/1 (Bet365) but we are going to bet on the three selections in a Trixie bet. This means we are getting three bets, a treble and the three doubles giving us a solid return if only two of the three selections win.
