Cheltenham Race Cards and Form
We have been following all the important horses this season as they have made their way to the Festival and the form guides are a top class aid for any punter. Each and every one of the 28 Festival Races has a dedicated form guide attached to it which has been running right through the winter to ensure they are as comprehensive as possible. Form is vital when it comes to having a bet with the undulations of Prestbury Park often catching horses and punters out when it comes to the big Festival races. The same can be said of the Cheltenham race cards which will be available through each day of the Festival; they will give punters a quick and easy guide to any race including the very latest price for each runner.
The ante-post race cards for the four Championship races are now live on the site and punters can get all the information they need on the biggest races. The cards will be updated at each declaration stage over the coming weeks with the Gold Cup Race Card, the Champion Hurdle, the World Hurdle and the Champion Chase of particular importance.
Our very own Tom Lee is once again be on duty for us during the Festival this season and he will be making his tips for all the big races on a daily basis. Tom has been in great form over the past few years and he will of course be hoping he can continue that this season. He had a great Festival last year and we know for a fact that he is eager to top that this week making his Tips essential reading.
