The biggest four days of the year for National Hunt horse racing punters is now just around the corner. We are now at crunch time where we have to put our money down and see of we can get the better of the bookies with our selections. For many the festival is about having a bet in a number of the races and enjoying getting a winner or two along the way. For others it is about backing the horses which will probably win them money and so for those that fit this category we are going to outline the possible four bets of this years festival that may just make you a return on your investment.
The first of our Cheltenham Festival bankers is Dunguib who runs in the Supreme Novices Hurdle on the first day of the festival. His current best price is 4/5 with Bet365 and this is about as good as you are going to get. Duguib is a machine and will win the opener.
Day 2 and Master Minded is the banker bet as he is back and will beat Kalahari King and Twist Magic in the Queen Mother Chase. His performance at Newbury at the weekend was breath taking and Paul Nicholls has got him back to his very best and at best odds of 5/6 with Sportingbet this is the way to go here.
Day 3 it is the turn of Big Bucks and at a best price of 4/6 again with Sportingbet he will pay you a nice return for this 10 minute investment in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle.
The final banker is Kauto Star after we saw that Denman is not the same horse as he was two years ago. His performance in the Aon Chase showed us that he has become a bit mulish and is not really in love with the game anymore. This leaves Kauto Star to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup once again at odds of 4/5 with Paddy Power.
