Horse Racing: 2019 Cheltenham Festival Betting Odds Update

2019 Cheltenham Festival Betting Odds Update

There were lots of great National Hunt racing over the Christmas period. Now that the dust has settled we can take a look at some of the movers and shakers in the latest 2019 Cheltenham Festival betting odds…

Classy Bird beaten

There were some serious 2019 Cheltenham Festival betting market moves following an informative day of jumps racing on Boxing Day or St Stevens Day as it is called over in Ireland. And starting in Ireland, Getabird drifted out to 28/1 with Betfair for the Arkle Chase following defeat in a Grade 1 novice chase at Limerick.

In fairness he looked to have the race in safe-keeping before a juddering mistake at the final fence handed the race to Gordon Elliott’s Hardline. That runner is now 20/1 for the JLT Novice Chase while Getabird remains 14/1 (Unibet) for the same contest.

Backing Horses to Win any Cheltenham 2019 Race

Le Richebourg is now top-priced 12/1 for the Arkle Chase after his smooth four-and-a-half length victory in a Grade 1 novice chase at Leopardstown.

Joseph O’Brien’s horse, owned by JP McManus, has alternative Cheltenham Festival targets such as the JLT and RSA Chases – so if you like the rapidly-improving French-bred five-year-old, possibly try to back him to ‘win any race’ at the Festival – something William Hill bookmakers specialise in.

Buveur Blue’s

But it was the Kempton defeat of the Champion Hurdle winner Buveur D’Air, at odds of 1/4 in the Christmas Hurdle, that made the two-mile showpiece race look winnable once again while sending the defending champion out to 7/4 (Coral) from odds-on across the bookmakers boards.

His conqueror, stable-mate Verdana Blue who was having her sixth race since the end of September, is now as short as 8/1 (14’s at BetVictor) from the 2019 Cheltenham Festival betting odds of 50/1 that were available prior to Christmas.

Ladies first at Kempton

Also at Kempton and another winning mare… La Bague Au Roi set pulses running with a gutsy win in the 32Red Kauto Star Novices’ Chase. Taking her record to three-from-three over fences she beat off the Paul Nichols-trained Topofthegame and highly-rated Nicky Henderson-trained Santini

Cheltenham odds makers clearly believe Santini will prefer the more testing Cheltenham circuit as they make him the top-priced 4/1 favourite (Betway) in the Festival’s RSA Chase.

La Bague Au Roi and Topofthegame can both be backed at 12/1 with Paddy Power in the same race. But La Bague Au Roi may be a more likely runner in the JLT Novice Chase, a race in which she is quoted at 10/1 with firms such as bet365*, Betfred and 888Sport.
