The 2021 Cheltenham Festival is upon us and punters everywhere will be preparing their bets for the biggest four days in the horse racing calendar. The Cheltenham Festival is certainly the biggest week in the year for racing punters, with 28 races across four days, with action-packed handicaps and top-class Graded races meaning there is something for all racing fans. We appreciate that football fans may not be up to date with all things horse racing but as it is Cheltenham, we want to get involved in the fun and guide you through the Festival just like we would do with the football.
Cheltenham naturally draws in more punters than everyday race meetings and therefore, bookmakers are handing out lots of free bets, prizes and offers to draw people in, so make sure you check out our page to see the best offers around. The Cheltenham Festival runs from Tuesday through to Friday, with the action starting at 1:20pm each day. The main race on the day, which is known as the ‘Championship Race’, is slap bang in the middle of the card at 3:05pm, with the action concludes each day at 5:30pm.
There are so many different races, with things such as big field handicaps giving punters more places and bigger prices and more chances to make a profit. Here at Footy Accumulators, we have put together beginners betting guide to the Cheltenham Festival, looking at the best ways to have a bet and a look at all the exclusive tips and offers.
