Cheltenham Set to Deliver Four Thrilling Championship Races

Cheltenham festival 2020

The Cheltenham Festival is on the horizon and this season, just like the rest, the meeting looks set to deliver us four thrilling Championship races to saviour. The Champion Hurdle headlines the first day of the meeting, with the Champion Chase on day two, Stayers Hurdle on day three and finally the Gold Cup on day four.

One of the things that is making this year stand out above others in the past is the variation we have for punters who are looking to place a bet at Cheltenham. Firstly, the Champion Hurdle looks wide open, with a number of runners in with chances. There has been no real standout contender emerge for the Champion Hurdle yet, some say that means it is a poor renewal, but actually it all adds to the excitement on the day and will provide a real puzzle for punters.

Then we have the Champion Chase, which is set to be a three-way battle between Altior, who has won the race for the past two seasons, Defi Du Seuil, the up and coming youngster, and Chacun Pour Soi, the Irish raider. These three together probably makes this the race of the festival on paper.

The Stayers Hurdle has many people’s idea of a betting banker for the week, with Paisley Park already odd on to win another title and follow up on last year’s success. This is a horse that could dominate this race for the next two or three years and be a multiple champion. Lastly, we have the Gold Cup, a wide-open renewal and one of the biggest betting races on the calendar. Ireland are strongly represented, so is the UK, this looks set to be a race that will divide opinions on the day and always a race that the racing world looks forward to watching on the final day of the meeting.

The bookies offers have some great offers on for Cheltenham already for those who are looking to get in and place their bets early before the big days arrive. There are a total of 28 races at the festival, but the four championship races are the ones which stand above the rest of the action. They all take place on the same time, 3:30pm, and offer the very best action across the four main disciplines of racing.

Cheltenham is a place where heroes are made on the track, and these four races will more than likely write the biggest headlines of the meeting. There are other things to look out for, such as Tiger Roll aiming to win at the festival for a 5th time, and which jockeys and trainers will come to the fore and take home the titles for being the best.

However, the four championship races are the pillars on which the festival stands upon and this season we could be seeing a fantastic mix of excitement, wide-open fields and bankers in these races.
