Day Four at the Cheltenham Festival
All eyes will be on one race as we head into the Cheltenham Festival’s final day, and that is, of course, The Cheltenham Gold Cup. The most significant event in the National Hunt racing calendar, it gives the biggest and best chasers the chance to add their name to a long list of previous champions already gracing the history books. But not to discount the other races, out tipster has picked out their top Cheltenham Tips for those too.
Cheltenham Day Four Tips: JCB Triumph Hurdle
The final chance for punters to hear the infamous Cheltenham roar in 2021, the Triumph Hurdle opens the card on the last day of the Cheltenham Festival. The second day that jockeys will have the chance to ride on the new course, and if there is give in the ground, it’ll certainly help as the day goes on. Contested over two miles, it’s a race where only eight hurdles will be jumped and is aimed at the juvenile hurdlers looking to get their first taste of the Cheltenham Festival.
Looking ahead to the card for this race, one of the factors to consider is that 8 of the last 12 victors have won their last race before heading to Cheltenham, cue Tritonic heading to the top of the betting market. Last seen at Kempton, he was a useful runner over the flat and has seamlessly transferred that form to hurdles, where he likes to lead from the front. He’ll appreciate better conditions, so Alan King will be hoping the rain holds off for his stamina to come into play.
Elsewhere in the betting, it’s Zanahiyr who currently has favouritism. However, given the current issues surrounding his trainer, we’ll be waiting to see whether he makes the trip across the Irish Sea. The other Irish challenger Quilixos has made the move to Henry De Bromhead’s stables to secure his place at the festival, and having won over hurdles on his last two outings, he could be the bigger priced horse to pass the post first.
JCB Triumph Hurdle Betting Odds
|Zanahiyr||Gordon Elliott, Ireland||3/1|
|Quilixios||Henry De Bromhead, Ireland||6/1|
|Duffle Coat||Gordon Elliott, Ireland||13/1|
|Teahupoo||Gordon Elliott, Ireland||13/1|
|Haut En Couleurs||W P Mullins, Ireland||17/1|
|Heross Du Seuil||Nicky Henderson||17/1|
Cheltenham Day Four Tips 2021: Cheltenham Gold Cup
Twenty-two fences stand in the way of jockeys and the ultimate glory of UK National Hunt racing. The biggest prize many trainers aim for across the season, the Cheltenham Gold Cup, is one of the most iconic races in the sport’s entirety. Most recently won by Al Boum Photo who is back at Cheltenham looking for a third consecutive victory and currently leads the betting market, horses with the calibre of Kauto Star, Denman and Best Mate are also famed for winning this race.
A race built for horses who have the stamina not only to get themselves over the tricky Cheltenham fences but who can also handle the long run in, the betting market is packed full to bursting with top-class chances. King George Chase winner Frodon is currently 12/1 in the betting market, and it’s expected Bryony Frost will once again partner the horse around Cheltenham. A 22/1 chance for that race, he was ridden well and should relish in the sheer amount of fences he has to jump here.
A Plus Tard seems unbeatable in Ireland, and Henry De Bromhead has prepared the horse well, resting him since his Savills Chase win at Leopardstown back in December. Last year’s second Santini is also 12/1 in the betting, and given the fact he underperformed last time out, it’s no surprise. He’s definitely not one to discount if he’s back to his old self and could once again give the market leaders a run for their money.
Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Odds
|Al Boum Photo||W P Mullins, Ireland||3/1|
|A Plus Tard||Henry De Bromhead, Ireland||5/1|
|Royal Pagaille||W P Mullins, Ireland||9/1|
|Kemboy||W P Mullins, Ireland||11/1|
|Minella Indo||Henry De Bromhead, Ireland||11/1|
Cheltenham Day Four Tips: Mares’ Chase
The final graded race on the last day of the Cheltenham Festival is the Mares’ Chase, and it’s open to mares of five-year-old or over. A brand new race for the 2021 Festival to replace the Centenary Novices’ Handicap Chase, it’s a welcome addition that gives the girls a chance to strut their stuff on the course on the final day of the festival.
Packed full of top-class chances from across the Irish Sea, Willie Mullins leads the betting market with Elimay and Colreevy, both of whom come into the festival with a win in their last outing over fences. But the one to watch is 8/1 chance Annie Mc for trainer Jonjo O’Neill, who is in cracking form coming into this race with wins at Warwick and Doncaster; it’s like this race is made for her with the perfect distance.
Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Odds
|Elimay||W P Mullins, Ireland||2/1|
|Colreevy||W P Mullins, Ireland||4/1|
|Shattered Love||Mrs Denise Foster, Ireland||6/1|
|Annie Mc||Jonjo O’Neill||8/1|
|Magic of Light||Mrs John Harrington, Ireland||13/1|
