Cheltenham Festival Horseracing Form
Form studying for the Cheltenham Festival is vital if a punter expects to get more than a winner or two. There are a total of twenty-six races at the Festival, meaning that there is a lot of form to study and this can only be done if the study starts early in the season. Each race at the Cheltenham Festival will have its own form line and this is usually made up of the recent performances of the horse. It is this form that dictates the betting odds which by and large are usually accurate at the Festival.
Punters should also check out the form of the stables of any fancied horses, stable do like to peak in time for the Festival but not all manage to do so.
Winners at the Cheltenham Festival have usually had previous course form and most have run a good race beforehand, outsiders can and do win, but not that often and punters are advised to stick with the top end of each race market in the Cheltenham Festival Betting.
Cheltenham Festival Betting Form
Often the most complicated area of assessing Cheltenham Festival form is trying to assess the form of the Irish contingent against the form of the UK horses. It should be remembered that invariably, Irish horses tend to run with more give in the ground than those in the UK and they tend to be hardier as a result and are getting more and more winners in the Cheltenham Festival races.
Sky Sports show plenty of Irish National Hunt racing throughout with their Attheraces programme throughout the season and it is always advisable to follow these races as often as possible.
When studying the form for the feature race at the Cheltenham Festival, that being the Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup, punters should look at the form of the King George Chase run on Boxing Day at Kempton Park. The King George has produced plenty of Gold Cup winners in the past.
