Cheltenham Festival Leading Trainer Betting Will See Bookmakers Take No Chances

Thursday 18th February 2010

The Cheltenham Festival is just four weeks away and soon we will be all turning our attention to some interesting bets at the 2010 festival. One of the most popular bets is backing who will be the top trainer over the 26 races. There will be one person that everyone will want to bet on and that will be Paul Nicholls as he has a number of bankers for the meeting in, Master Minded, Big Bucks and Kauto Star. In addition to these he also has back up for all of these races plus many chances right the way through the meeting. At the moment there is no betting available for this market but when it does come out Paul Nicholls will be a very short priced favourite.

For the fourth consecutive year, Paul Nicholls was leading trainer at The Festival in 2009. He sent out an unprecedented five winners over the four days, including victories in the Seasons Holidays Queen Mother Champion Chase (Master Minded), the Ladbrokes World Hurdle (Big Buck’s) and the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup (Kauto Star). All three horses are the current ante-post favourites to regain their crowns this year and the champion trainer is almost guaranteed to be a short-priced favourite to take the Thomas Pink Leading Trainer Award once again. There were three seconds as well, notably Celestial Halo who was beaten a neck in the Smurfit Kappa Champion Hurdle and Denman who chased home stable companion Kauto Star in the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup. Nicholls, if he wins the 2010 totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup, will become the joint most successful trainer alongside Tom Dreaper in the great race.
