A Free Bet For My First Cheltenham Fancy

| February 22, 2011 | 3 Replies

Before you get excited, I’m afraid this piece has nothing to do with my love life…

Although obviously that would make for a thrilling read!

Instead, this is the first of a number of tips for the upcoming Cheltenham festival.

You see, I just love National Hunt racing and I especially love Cheltenham and the Grand National (more on the latter at a later date).

Obviously I’m going to be far from the only person to send out Cheltenham tips (my inbox is full of them) but given my past results, I’m confident that these will be among the very best you receive.

Just check out my pre-season four to follow for example…

The fab four have failed to win just one race out of eight and on that occasion our pick (Tataniano) still came third!

So, kicking off the Betting Rant’s build up to Cheltenham is my pick for the hotly anticipated Champion Hurdle…

Back Peddlers Cross at 11/2 with Paddy Power.

Take advantage of Paddy’s new-found generosity

Paddy Power have been offering a £10 free bet for some time now but quite frankly, I thought that to be a tad ungenerous.

Fortunately, Mr. Power has decided to do something about it and you can now bag yourself £50 worth of free bets if you open a new account.

With Paddy Power currently joint best price for Peddlers Cross, this is the perfect opportunity to sign up if you don’t have an account already.

And if you do, why not suggest it to a friend or family member?

If Peddlers wins it might even get you out of washing the dishes/visiting the in-laws/buying the first round for the next few weeks!

The horse that just keeps on giving

Peddlers Cross is one of those rarities in the world of sport – an unbeaten competitor.

These rare beasts don’t tend to last too long but while they are unbeaten they are perfect to side with as confidence is sky high.

Success breeds more success and Peddlers Cross has certainly had plenty of that…

He has won every one of his eight races to date, including an easy victory in his Cheltenham warm-up last week and a win over current ante-post favourite Binocular back in November.

Crucially, he also has form at Cheltenham having won the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle at last year’s festival.

What’s more, history appears to be on his side…

You see, eight of the last 11 Champion Hurdle winners were priced at 10/1 or shorter…

And 18 of the last 20 were in the first six in the betting.

Now, Donald McCain’s horse is currently fourth in the betting and is one of only four horses widely available at 10/1 or shorter.

Of the other three, one is Binocular who disappointed on his Cheltenham prep and lost to Peddlers Cross on their only previous meeting…

One is my friend and yours Hurricane Fly who, while dangerous, has never ran in Britain before, let alone at Cheltenham…

And one is Menorah, who is potentially the biggest threat but doesn’t have quite as impressive a CV (in my un-humble opinion) as our boy.

So, get over to Paddy Power, grab yourself £50 worth of free bets and back Peddlers Cross to win the Champion Hurdle at 11/2.

    My tip for Cheltenham is for the Gold Cup, its not necessarily a tip in itself, but it would be NOT to back Kauto Star or Denman, they have been there done that. Go for an each-way on Kempes, bound to get a place and a big price too! 🙂

    I read somewhere that backing every horse in every race at chletenham to level stakes would yield a profit due to the high priced winners! Well, i would go one better and back every horse in every race except the favourite and you will make even more! What do others think? I have checked it out and it does makes perfect sense.

    Martin, I think you may be right there. I think both will struggle and possibly Imperial Commander too. Looks like a year for one of the younger horses to make a name for themself.

    Guy, I think it was Geegeez that ran an article along those lines. It’s an interesting thought. One bet I really like the look of, bearing that in mind, is the ‘sell’ of Festival Favourites on Extra Bet.

    There’s more info on it here: http://www.bettingrant.co.uk/the-best-spread-markets-to-bet-on-at-the-festival-713
