Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide 2024 Review

By Peter Moore

Spring is within touching distance, which means the eagerly awaited Cheltenham Festival is rapidly approaching. The biggest festival in the racing calendar takes place between 12th -15th March, with all and sundry racegoers descending on Cheltenham.

As like all racing festivals, not only are the best horses on show but it is also a big headache trying to pick winners.

Out now is the ideal tool for punters to try and beat the bookies. Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide 2024 is written by Paul Ferguson plus a host of guest authors.

Now in it’s 25th year, the book contains everything that you will need to try and make you some money in the fantastic four days of great racing that lies ahead.

Every race of the four day festival is analysed in great detail, including an overview of each race, last time winners and the unbeatable section called Key Trends, a weapon that any punter big or small will need to use.

There is also a page of leading contenders for each race where you will find Paul has gone into great detail about the main hopes for the race, with information on previous form and chances in the race.

The book contains a foreword by the renowned former BBC racing correspondent Cornelius Lysaght, along with a reflection of some of his favourite horses from 100 years of the Gold Cup.

Our racing friends from across the water are not forgotten either with an Irish View from Don McClean who looks at the main events of the festival from an Irish point of view.

Racing TV’s Jess Stafford has penned a wonderful article in terms of breeding with a Festival Firsts section which looks at the chances of trainers looking for their first festival success.

If after doing your own research you are still unsure about where to put your hard earned money, then fear not as Jodie Standing has put her head on the line with some daily tips for the four days.

Aside from the festival, the guide has come up with 12 spring horses to follow in 2024, which interestingly includes just one trained by leading Irish trainer Willie Mullins.

As an added bonus, Paul has included a stimulating Grand National Festival betting guide at the end of the book to get you in the mood for the three day meeting at Aintree in April.
Packed with 296 pages of  material which will guarantee you won’t want to put this guide down, Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide 2024 is a must for any racing fan.

Published by Weatherbys and in association with Fitzdares, at £16.50 it is worth every penny, and is on sale now.
