Cheltenham Day 4 Betting Offers
As the 2018 Cheltenham Festival winds down to a close after the Gold Cup, this race over the minimum trip of 2 miles provides a good quality handicap race for punters to have a go at, if their luck is in on the day.
Martin Pipe Handicap Feature Betting Tip
Arguably the most difficult handicap of the entire week with plenty of unexposed novices with Graded aspirations for the future.
Diese Des Bieffes has been well supported in the lead up to this with the likelihood of James Bowen taking the ride. His last couple of runs have been encouraging at Kempton, including when fifth to stablemate William Henry in the Lanzarote, and this stiffer track looks likely to suit.
Deal D’estruval looks well treated on his second to Off You Go at the Dublin Racing Festival and the step up in trip looks in his favour, while other Irish contenders of interest include Dortmund Park and Early Doors, who both have solid Graded form to their name and are relatively unexposed.
Another with more to offer is SPRINGTOWN LAKE who chased home leading Ballymore contender On The Blind Side at Sandown earlier in the season and his tenacious attitude will see him right there at the finish when plenty have cried enough.
Contenders for this race will start to form more solidly in March, but names in the hat at the time of writing include: Duc Des Genievres, Whiskey Sour, Hunters Call, Impact Factor, Minds Eye, Ben Dundee, Red Jack and Poli Roi.
bet365 are offering odds of 16/1 on Le Richbourg, a talented horse last summer who’s had a quiet enough winter, but could run well if the ground was fast. Last year’s third, Runfordave, also makes Cheltenham betting appeal at odds of 16/1.
