Betting Tips on Cheltenham Trials Day Races

With Cheltenham Trials day betting being typically competitive with lots of high quality horses on display, here are some betting tips which can come in handy.


  • The JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial kicks off the day as one of the last key trial races for the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March. Look out for free bets and enhanced odds offers on the fancied runners as bookmakers look to provide some extra incentives in the earlier races on the day.
  • The BetBright Trial Chase is a good trial race for the Cheltenham Gold Cup over an extended three mile trip. Favourites have a poor record in this race, with the last one to win being Cyfor Malta way back in 1999!  There may be some Cheltenham Trials Day betting offers on the favourite for this one, but be wary of that stat!
  • The Grade 2 Neptune Novices’ Hurdle was won impressively last year by Yanworth, who went off at short odds at the Cheltenham Festival in 2016 where he failed to fire, but this quality affair is worth keeping a close eye on.
  • Another race to look out for  is the Grade 2 Cleeve Hurdle, last year won by the mighty Thistlecrack en route to his romp in the World Hurdle at the Festival six weeks later. In 2017, this race could be an ideal stepping stone for the likes of Yanworth, Uknowhatimeanharry, or even Faugheen who is currently the favourite for the World Hurdle. With such stats and significance to the festival itself, watch out for enhanced odds offers on this race.
