Cheltenham Day 3 Betting 2018

Cheltenham Festival | Champion Day | Ladies Day | Gold Cup Day | Cheltenham Results |

The Irish will get to celebrate St Patrick’s with great Cheltenham Festival free bets.

Although Day 3 of the festival has Sun Bets Stayers Hurdle and the Ryanair Chase top the bill, The Trull House Stud Mares Novices’ Hurdle is a particular race on this day as the trophy may return to Irish jockey Willie Mullins, who trained last year’s winner Limini.

Cheltenham Day 3 Free Bets

Cheltenham St Patrick’s Day free bets should be flowing as freely as the Guinness.  Topping the list, and the most valuable free bets of all, are new customer offers.  So if you have made it to Day 3 of the Cheltenham Festival still not opened an account with some online bookies, the time is right to earn yourself some more free bets!

St Patrick’s Day Betting Offers

Sun Bets have taken over from Ladbrokes as sponsors of the three-mile ‘World Hurdle’.  The fledgling company already give new Sun Bets customers who place a first-time wager of £5 or more a free bet worth £10 but surely they will be the ones who offer the biggest and best concession or enhanced odds on the race come Festival week.

Also keep a good eye open for improved each-way terms on Cheltenham St Patrick’s Day betting action.  With some races looking like a veritable lottery – such as the large field Pertemps Network Final handicap hurdle – some firms will be adding additional places to the traditional 1-2-3 or 1-2-3-4.

Money Back Specials are sure to feature heavily too.  Often a concession given to those unfortunate enough to back a final fence faller or narrowly beaten runner, punters get compensated with a free bet to use on a subsequent race.

St Patrick’s Day Betting Tips

Yorkhill, as a 156 rated hurdler is the best in that sphere of the new chasing recruits set to line-up in the Cheltenham St Patrick’s Day 2017 curtain raiser, the JLT Novice Chase.  The Irish raider has been faultless in two chasing starts this campaign, taking his lifetime record to 8 from 9. On all known form he really should get favourite backers off to a flier.

We will dodge the Pertemps Hurdle apart from predicting it will go to a ‘major stable’ but return for race three on the card to back Un De Sceaux in the Ryanair Chase.  Runner-up in last year’s Queen Mother Champion Chase and successful in a Grade 1 chase at Cheltenham in January, Ruby Walsh’ mount should relish the intermediate 2m 5f trip and should be backed early with the firms who are going ‘non-runner no-bet’ such as bet365.

He is not overly flashy in what he does but Unowhatimeanharry has strung together a sequence of eight consecutive wins including the best World Hurdle trial race, the Cleeve Hurdle.  In a race where fancied runners fare extremely well, he is unopposable in the day’s feature race.

But our biggest priced fancy is in the Mares Novice Hurdle.  Willie Mullins’ has a stranglehold on this race with Airlie Beach, the favourite who is unbeaten in seven starts, Let’s Dance, Augusta Kate and Camelia de Cotte are all entered but we think his French import, Asthuria, is the one to beat and should be backed each-way at a double-digit price.

St Patrick’s Day Races

The JLT Chase is now a legitimate springboard for up and coming 2m4f-3m chasers and in 2017, we’ll be looking to the like of Nicky Henderson’s Buveir D’Air and Willie Mullins’ Yorkhill to be toward the head of the betting come March. Min is another name to throw in the mix, while Yanworth and Le Prezien are also dark horses for Alan King and Paul Nicholls.

St Patrick’s Day Thursday free bet and value seekers will be looking to the Pertemps Final at 2.10pm in search of the best each-way place terms in what promises to be the usual helter-skelter handicap hurdle where any number of horses can win.

Coral bet 10 get 30

The Ryanair Chase is up at 2.50pm and the picture of this race is yet to fully form in terms of where the like of Vautour, Road To Riches, Valseur Lido and Vroum Vroum Mag are going to race. Often thought of as the poor relation to the Gold Cup, the Ryanair Chase invariably does develop into a proper Grade 1 contest in its own right. As things stand, Willie Mullins holds a big hand in the market for the Ryanair Chase, but it’s all guesswork as to how this race will shape up at this stage.

The Ryanair Hurdle last season went to the brilliant Thistlecrack. In 2017, a lot will depend on whether or not Annie Power defends her Champion Hurdle crown, or reverts to three miles. If she does, then she is sure to be a very hard horse to beat on the day. She has unfinished business with this race, having finished 2nd to More Of That in 2014.

Two excellent handicap chases are the bread of the remaining three races on the card, with the meat in the sandwich the all-new festival race, the Grade 2 Mares’ Novices Hurdle. It will be interesting to see how this one goes! St Patrick’s Day Thursday is a top quality day of racing for all to enjoy and of course, the celebration of all things Irish only adds to the atmosphere surrounding the occasion.

Traditionally day three is a tough day for punters, so advice would be to be cautious and look to seek out some value without giving too much back to the bookmakers from the first two days!
