The tool provides free horse racing tips for Cheltenham and analyses every horse’s chance of winning their race based on a set of variables. This should be your go-to place before every single bet you place.

The Racing Ratings algorithm for Cheltenham will provide a number or ranking value based on a wealth of information such as – bookmaker value, race history and performance and also trainer and jockey stats. The numbers and information are then crunched to provide an ABC rating – the higher the rating the better the horse has a chance of winning.

Andy and his team of experts will also use Racing Ratings as part of their research when tipping a bet for Cheltenham. It’s a market-leading piece of technology to help our audience make smarter betting decisions for Cheltenham.

Free Cheltenham Festival Lucky 15 & Best Bets & Tips

Andy and the Cheltenham betting experts will pick their accumulator tips based on several factors. But most importantly, we look for the value in the bookmaker prices while also keeping it simple with a handful of selections that we think will come in.

ABC will post a daily Lucky 15 bet, which is one of the most popular bet types for Cheltenham punters. In terms of multiple bets, a Lucky 15 combines multiple selections to make a multiple bet.

A Lucky 15 bet covers the majority of betting angles. For example, it’s four selections: four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold accumulator.

It’s a popular bet for Cheltenham Festival and one that Andy’s Bet Club will be posting each day. Punters like the fact that it covers all bases on one bet.

The main benefits from these types of betting strategies are the odds are much bigger.

Daily Cheltenham Festival NAP Tips 

Each day throughout the Cheltenham Festival we will be posting our daily NAP, it’s the expert’s absolute best banker bet of the day.

The Most Popular Types of Cheltenham Festival Betting Markets 

In the build-up to Cheltenham Festival, you’ll notice a huge influx of bookmark betting markets to enjoy.

At Andy’s Bet Club we’ll make sure to make use of a selection of betting markets available, especially using Paddy Power, Betfair and Sky Bet, which we find have the widest range of betting markets for the event.

Even if we don’t tip all of the markets available we’ll still highlight some of the best bets that we think are worth a punt.

Our experts will deliver the Cheltenham betting tips in the week leading up to the event, however, if you want to get a bet placed earlier the odds are likely to be a little better given the lack of knowledge around form.

Just make sure to take advantage of the non-runner no bet markets so if your horse doesn’t run you’ll get your money back – it’s a top feature to use for insurance especially when hunting for the best odds.

Let’s take a look at the most popular betting markets to enjoy:

Win – the easiest and most popular bet type in horse racing is picking a horse to win the race. This means you’re placing a bet on the horse you’ve selected to win the race outright.

Each Way – an each way bet is essentially two bets in one, you are betting on the selected horse to win or to place. For example, your bet will win if your horse finishes in the top three. However, some Cheltenham bookies will pay extra places, which is a valuable feature to take stock of.

Forecast/Tricast – this type of bet can accumulate really good odds. Here you are betting on the order of the race outcome. For example, a forecast would mean you’re predicting 1-2 and a tricast bet means you would be predicting 1-2-3.

Top Trainer/Jockey – these types of novelty bets are ideal for those who follow racing closely. Andy’s Bet Club will produce an outright piece where we will offer a prediction on both markets.

Prestbury Cup Winners – it’s a prestigious award that goes to either Britain or Ireland for winning the most races throughout the four days. And it’s named after the famous racecourse itself.

Horse To Win Any Race – this is a great market with a good amount of value. Most trainers will enter their horses into a number of races, not knowing how well they will fare. If you fancy a horse but are not sure which one to go for you can always use the horse to win any race market to increase your chances of winning. Some bookmakers will provide special odds for this kind of bet.

How Andy’s Experts Pick A Cheltenham Winner  

Most punters will look at the favourites to begin with, these are the horses with the shortest price and who the bookmakers think has the highest probability of winning.

You follow the rest of the crowd by backing the favourite, however, during the 2023 Cheltenham Festival 30% of favourites or joint favourites won their races, which was 9 of 27 races.

Picking a winner at Cheltenham Festival can be a little more difficult, which is why using the Racing Ratings betting tool is a great way to get started.

From there you can start to study racecards, look at form, weight, odds and history at the course. Browse the ABC how to bet on Cheltenham guide, which details how to pick a winner, how to use Racing Ratings and covers, in detail, everything you need to know about placing a bet on Cheltenham.

How To Understand Cheltenham Betting Odds

Most punters have a good understanding of betting odds, and rightly so, it’s important to know a little about betting odds such as decimal and fractional basics. Some online bookmakers during Cheltenham Festival can display their odds differently (you can change them in your preferences) but importantly you want to understand the odds so you don’t place a bet you thought was something else.

Odds are presented in two ways:

Fractional: presented as two numbers like 3/1. The first number is how much you will win and the second number is how much you have to stake to receive these winnings. For example a £1 stake on 3/1 will return £3 plus your £1 stake so £4 in total.

Decimal: it’s the same when presented with decimal odds, which will be shown as 3.50. This shows you how much you will receive in winnings including a 1.0 (or £1) stake.
