Latest Cheltenham Festival odds and specials
Our traders have opened betting on what the official going will be for the opening race of this year’s Cheltenham Festival, and make good to soft their 4/9 favourite.
There’s 6/4 that the ground will be soft, and 10/1 that the tapes go up for Tuesday’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on heavy going.
“Last year’s Cheltenham Festival began on heavy going, so we’re not expecting a repeat of that. But after a largely dry winter the current unsettled weather has made the prospect of a good to soft description most likely, with soft ground also in the running,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
Meanwhile, Ruby Walsh is 11/4 favourite to be named Top Jockey at the Festival, ahead of 10/3 Barry Geraghty and 9/2 shot Davy Russell.
