Best Horse Racing Betting in 2018

With each of the major horse racing events having their own unique qualities to them, here is what to look out for in each of the major horse racing betting events in 2018.

Cheltenham Betting – The pinnacle of the horse racing betting season as battle takes place every March between the best of the Irish and British national hunt jumps horses. With so many races to bet on over a 4 day period, the key to winning at Cheltenham relies on two main factors. If you backing a horse over the larger obstacles (chase races), Cheltenham has some of the stiffest jumps in the country. You will need to be sure to stick with horses with good jumping as the difficult fences will catch out any sketchy jumpers. In hurdles races, it pays to stick with the strong travelling types due to the strong pace most Cheltenham Festival races are ran at. Use these as your foundation for use of your horse racing free bet offers.

Grand National Betting – The single biggest betting day of the year descends on Aintree in Liverpool in early April. The follow on from the Cheltenham festival, the Grand National Festival provides some excellent opportunities to use your free bet offers. For the longest race of the year in the UK, it may sound obvious but proven winning form at over 3 miles is critical to finding the winner. By using your horse racing free bet offers, you are able to cover a number of runners to give you a great run for your money.

Royal Ascot Betting – The highest class festival of flat racing heads to Ascot in June, with an incredible 8 Group One races spread over 5 days of racing, it gives the punter a wide range of options to use your horse racing free bets. The most popular race of the 5 day meeting is the Gold Cup run over a punishing 2 miles 4 furlongs, the longest race of the Group One calendar, designed for pure out and out stayers. The race made a legend out of the Aidan O’Brien trained Yates who was able to lift the trophy 4 years in succession from 2006 to 2009. For anyone looking to use the best horse racing betting offers for the race, be sure to look for specialist stayers with stout breeding who can maintain a gallop, well beyond 2 miles.

1000 and 2000 Guineas Betting – The quest to find the best 3 year old mile horses arrives at Newmarket at the back end of the spring. Historically, both the 1000 and 2000 Guineas are popular Ante Post betting races with much being wagered on the race long before the day of the race. Good breeding is essential as the race comes early in the 3 year old calendar, quality in the bloodlines is of paramount importance. If looking to use some of the free bet offers for the race, make sure you stick to well bred individuals.

Epsom Derby – Run for the first time in 1780 the Epsom Derby is widely regarded as the world’s greatest Flat race – although those associated with the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe, Kentucky Derby or Melbourne Cup may dispute the fact. The mile and a half contest run on the unique undulations of the Epsom Downs is the ultimate test of the thoroughbred and is invariably won by the best horse in the race.The roll of honour includes many of the great champions of the sport including Nijinsky, Mill Reef, Shergar, Galileo and Seas The Stars. With four wins in the last six years the first place to start in trying to predict the outcome is with Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien, although it is not always his most fancied contender who comes out on top as was the case in 2017 with 40-1 chance Wings Of Eagles.

Irish Derby – Takes place in late June or early July at the Curragh and the modern version of the mile and a half Classic dates back to 1866. Usually the next stepping-stone for the winner of the Epsom Derby. Camelot, Australia and Harzand have completed the double in the last six years. Like the Epsom version recent renewals have been dominated by runners from the Ballydoyle stable of Aidan O’Brien who will attempt to win the race for the thirteenth time in 2018. Only Jim Bolger, John Gosden and Dermot Weld have prevented a clean sweep for O’Brien during the last twelve years so anything taking on the Ballydoyle bandwagon from those stables has to be treated with plenty of respect. Five favourites have won the race between 2009 and 2017 with the other three going off 7-2, 7-2 and 6-1 so those looking for a big priced winner are likely to be disappointed.
