Cheltenham 2018 Preview & Betting Odds Guide

We preview the main Championship races, guiding you through the chances of the main contenders in the 2018 Cheltenham Festival odds for the Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother Champion Chase, Stayers Hurdle and Gold Cup, writes Fiora.

2018 Champion Hurdle Preview & Betting Guide

Nicky Henderson’s Buveur D’Air is a worthy favourite to retain his Champion Hurdle crown and is unbeaten in his three starts since. He was last seen winning by nearly two lengths at Sandown in February after being eased by Barry Geraghty and then woken up as John Constable mounted a late challenge.

The closest horse to Buveur D’Air last year was his veteran stablemate, My Tent Or Yours, giving owner JP McManus a memorable one-two. Henderson reports that My Tent Or Yours is in great form but, now an eleven-year-old, something would surely have to be amiss with the seven-year-old favourite for him to reverse the placings.

The most obvious threat from Ireland is the Ricci’s Faugheen. His trainer Willie Mullins has reportedly found no physical reason for his failure to shine since returning from a two year break due to suspensory ligament problems.

Faugheen won his comeback run in the Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown in November impressively but was subsequently pulled up in the Ryanair Hurdle at Leopardstown. Paul Townend dismounted but Faugheen was not lame, just very under par. Mullins said he was a bit stiff after his most recent run in early February in the Irish Champion Hurdle. Faugheen was the 9/10 favourite but was beaten two lengths by Jessie Harrington’s Supasundae. Faugheen will be reunited with Ruby Walsh but, now a ten-year-old, this seems a big ask.

His mercurial stablemate Wicklow Brave, the 2016 Irish St Leger winner, is worth mentioning. If he consents to start at the same time as everyone else he is not without hope of picking up place money. Wicklow Brave was very slowly away in this race last year but was only beaten 14 lengths. Next time out he won the Punchestown Champion Hurdle beating My Tent Or Yours in first time blinkers. He was last seen finishing a respectable tenth in the Melbourne Cup in November.

Buveur D’Air ought to win this easily but his price in the Champion Hurdle odds certainly reflects that view. His stablemate My Tent Or Yours is interesting as an each-way chance as he loves this track and saves his best for it.

2018 Queen Mother Champion Chase Preview & Betting Guide

They never hang around in the Champion Chase and this renewal is likely to be run at a furious pace with the front-running current titleholder Special Tiara as well as the exuberant Ar Mad in the line-up.

Henry De Bromhead will be hoping for decent ground for Special Tiara to show his best and Gary Moore has said that Ar Mad is better right-handed so the two pacesetters may be up against it when it matters.

Nicky Henderson’s hot favourite in the Cheltenham odds,  Altior, is more amenable in his running style and looks likely to continue his unbeaten run at Prestbury Park. This eight-year-old son of High Chaparral has won all his 12 runs over obstacles.

Altior’s seasonal debut was delayed by a wind operation which seems to have worked if his comfortable victory in the Game Spirit Chase at Newbury in February is any guide. Henderson was worried about the soft ground but Altior despatched Paul Nicholls’ Politologue with imperious ease, beating him four lengths. In his previous run Altior beat Special Tiara eight lengths in the Celebration Case at Sandown last April, appearing to have an extra gear which he deployed after the last.

Willie Mullins’ Douvan is the one horse who on paper at least ought to be able to challenge Altior. They share a rating of 170 but Douvan has not been seen since he flopped in this race last year and was found to have a stress fracture in his pelvis. It was his first defeat since being bought from France ending a 13-race winning run for his owners the Riccis.

Testing ground at Gowran Park put a line through his planned prep run so we only have Mullins’ word that he is working well at home and that they are hopeful of a good performance. Last minute money for Douvan will demonstrate just how strong that sentiment actually is.

The Riccis have another interesting challenger in Min who has other options at the Festival. Rated just 3lb below his stablemate, this seven-year-old has proved his wellbeing by winning the Dublin Chase at Leopardstown in February beating Simply Ned 12 lengths. Special Tiara was a close third delighting his trainer as the soft ground was not to his liking.

Nicky Henderson’s yard is in form and Altior is the one they have to beat but Special Tiara could be interesting each-way if the ground is no slower than good to soft on the day.

2018 Stayers’ Hurdle Preview & Odds Analysis

Robbie Power believes that Jessie Harrington’s Supasundae is his best chance of a winner at Cheltenham and their position in the Stayers’ Hurdle betting market suggests he could be right. They have the all-important course form, Power successfully partnered Supersundae in the Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle at the Festival last year. They were unfancied at 16/1 but won by two lengths.

A month later Supasundae was only beaten a length into second by Yanworth in the Ryanair Stayers’ Liverpool Hurdle having been a ‘sweaty mess’ beforehand. This season Supasundae has had three starts and has improved with each run. He was only half a length behind Gordon Elliott’s star mare Apple’s Jade in the Christmas Hurdle run over three miles on soft ground at Leopardstown.

Supasundae deserved a Grade 1 win and got one last time out in the Irish Champion Hurdle, beating Faugheen two lengths. That was over two miles but this sturdy eight-year-old son of Galileo operates over further and seems to be typical of his sire’s progeny with a strong will to get his head in front when it matters.

Alan King has tried Yanworth over fences this season with mixed results. He won his chasing debut at Exeter but not in the manner of a 2/7 favourite and fell next time out. In December Yanworth was beaten three lengths into second by Willoughby Court at Newbury but he won on New Year’s Day here, beating the Tizzards’ Sizing Tennessee a neck with Willoughby Court eight lengths behind him in third.

Switching back to hurdles has to strengthen Yanworth’s chances of success but he was disappointing at this meeting last year, starting as the favourite in the Champion Hurdle and getting well beaten before being disqualified after a drugs test. His owner JP McManus thought he did not handle the atmosphere beforehand but Yanworth has often been described as quirky. His tendency to hang suggests he is carrying some physical damage that should be less of an issue over smaller obstacles.

Sam Spinner is another strong contender sharing a rating of 164 with Supasundae. He would be an extremely popular winner coming from Jedd O’Keeffe’s small yard and ridden by Joe Colliver. His preparation was slightly compromised when the ‘Beast from the East’ closed the gallops at Middleham but Sam Spinner was kept moving, albeit at a slower pace, on the moors.

This progressive six-year-old son of Black Sam Bellamy has won his last two starts, most recently beating Nicky Henderson’s L’Ami Serge in the Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot in December with the favourite, Harry Fry’s Unowhatimeanharry beaten 10 lengths in third. Sam Spinner likes to make all and seems to be on an upward curve but has never been to Prestbury Park. His connections are praying for testing ground but the uphill finish could make it less important than they think. He has to be one for the very shortlist.

One potential issue for Sam Spinner is the presence of Nigel Twiston-Davies’ popular veteran The New One who might challenge him for the lead if they do not switch tactics and try to conserve fuel. This ten-year-old is incredibly genuine and never runs a bad race but he is not getting any quicker and is being tried over this distance for the first time.

The New One finished second to My Tent Or Yours here on 16 December and was only beaten two lengths by Buveur D’Air in the Christmas Hurdle 10 days later. Most recently he won the Champion Hurdle Trial at Haydock in late January and a placing is very possible but he is not being offered at a long enough price to make an each-way punt attractive.

Another horse worth mentioning in case he turns up is Willie Mullins’ Penhill. This seven-year-old won the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at the Festival last year at 16/1 and went on to finish second in a Grade 1 novice hurdle at Punchestown a month later. He has not been seen on a racecourse since.

The Stayers’ Hurdle is the most competitive championship race at this Cheltenham Festival, with Supasundae and Sam Spinner sharing a rating of 164 and Yanworth and Unowhatimeanharry rated just 1lb lower. Conditions on the day and the way the race unfolds will be crucial but, thanks to his lowly connections, Sam Spinner could offer the best value win wager at the betting odds.

Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Preview 2018

This is a fascinating renewal with question marks hanging over a number of the Cheltenham Gold Cup betting market leaders. Nicky Henderson’s ultra-talented Might Bite is the clear favourite but he is a typical son of Scorpion and is not straightforward.

This nine-year-old did his best to lose the RSA Novices’ Chase at the Festival last year by veering dramatically after the last fence allowing his stablemate Whisper to get within a nose of him. Since then Might Bite has been much better behaved but does Prestbury Park somehow exacerbate his quirks?

He has won his previous five starts and was last seen taking the rather weak-looking King George at Kempton on Boxing Day, beating the 50/1 shot Double Shuffle a length after idling on the run-in. Ruby Walsh thinks that Might Bite is outstanding and, if he is undistracted, he is definitely the one they all have to beat but testing ground would not play to his strengths.

Harrington’s second string and Irish National winner Our Duke has plenty of stamina but has had physical issues. He ‘scoped abnormally’ and has had back problems that were blamed for his disappointing performance in the JNWine Champion Chase but Harrington believes they have been successfully treated.

Our Duke won his last start in the Red Mills Chase at Gowran Park in February but his jumping was dodgy. Noel Fehily said he believed this eight-year-old has the stamina and high cruising speed to be a live contender when he was booked for the ride. Sizing John’s withdrawal means that Robbie Power will now partner him. Fehily did not mention Our Duke’s tendency to uproot the odd fence which is a massive concern here.

The Tizzards’ resurgent veteran Cue Card is yet to jump a clear round in the Gold Cup but if he does manage to complete he seems unlikely to get more than place money. He was last seen battling valiantly but getting beaten nearly three lengths by Waiting Patiently in the Ascot Chase in February under Paddy Brennan.

The stable’s more popular prospect Native River finished third in the Gold Cup last year, beaten nearly three lengths on the good ground. A small injury dictated that he has only been seen once since, winning the Denman Chase at Newbury in February impressively by 12 lengths under a hand and heels ride from Richard Johnson. He beat nothing but the Tizzards were pleased that he had an easy race and thought he needed a run prior to this target.

Soft ground should help Native River as he is not the fastest but has stamina to burn but Might Bite ought to outpace him and looks the most likely winner if conditions are not too testing.

What do you think?
