Cheltenham - At The Races

Cheltenham Trendspotting


We start with the statistics that are often the first port-of-call for many punters weighing up the meeting, and that’s the overall records of trainers.


Ask any punter to rate their key considerations when weighing up a race and it is likely that the jockey will be near the top of the list.

Sires and Specialists

It often pays to avoid the obvious when searching for a decent priced-winner, and the use of sire statistics can be a useful tool.

Betting and the Market

We look at the record of favourites and second favourites, splitting their performance out according to various categories before taking a look at Pool betting including the Placepot.

Key Trials and Final Pointers

Keeping an eye on key trials leading up to Cheltenham has proven a worthwhile exercise down the years, especially when such springboards are used as a final prep for the festival.
