By on March 13, 2018

Hopefully today’s post will point you in the direction of a decent value bet or two.

Over at GeeGeez Matt Bisogno asked 15 experts five questions regarding Cheltenham.

You can read the full post here.

Today I want to share these experts’ views on the best value bets at the festival.

Here goes…


Chris Cook, journalist/tipster for The Guardian:

Tully East for the Plate.


Simon Rowlands, freelance journalist for Timeform, ATR, Irish Field:

Native River is a good each-way bet in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Sam Spinner should be shorter than he is now in the Stayers’ Hurdle.


Sam Turner, tipster Robin Goodfellow for the Daily Mail, RUK broadcaster:

Next Destination EW at 5-1 or bigger (Ballymore).


Andy Richmond, full time punter and RUK writer/broadcaster:

Rathvinden (NH Chase) and Kemboy (JLT).


Tony Calvin, freelance journalist for Betfair, RUK:

Tue: I am on Wicklow Brave each-way and without the favourite in the Champion Hurdle; Paloma Blue NRNB each-way in the Supreme.

Wed: Duke Des Genievres EW in Ballymore; Dounikos EW in RSA, and I have been backing Special Tiara everywhere since his third to Min in the Dublin Chase, I expect to be shafted by soft ground there, though.

Thu: I am on Balko Des Flos and Penhill small in the Ryanair and Stayers respectively.

Fri: I have had a fair old pop at Djakadam win-only on Betfair, and at 33s NRNB for the Gold Cup. Talk of his demise is premature I feel, and expect some headgear on when we next see him.


Paul Jones, former editor of Weatherby’s Cheltenham Festival Guide, author, ‘From Soba To Moldova’:

Edwulf each way at 25/1 for the Gold Cup.


Tony Keenan, geegeez.co.uk and Betfair blogger, Final Furlong podcast contributor:

The Bigmartre/Terrefort combo in the JLT looks a reasonable bet.


Paul Jacobs, five-time newspaper naps champion, and broadcaster:

Bacardys in the Stayers Hurdle looks a live-wire each-way play at a double figure price.


Chris Worrall, Mr Stat of the Day:

Black Corton at around 8/1.

There are a couple of 16/1 e/w shots in the Champion Chase: Great Field & Special Tiara.


‘Ronnie’ Whelan, Head of Trading, Skybet:

Summerville Boy in the Skybet Supreme.

White Moon at the general 25/1 is a bigger price than it should be for the Albert Bartlett.


Ian Marmion, Trading Director, BetStars:

I think the 10/1 about Politologue for the Queen Mother is nap each way material.


Chris Poole, Head of Trading, BetVictor:

I like Ballyoptic at a price in the RSA.

I also think Apples Jade is an absolute moral in the Mares’ and over-eager firms on day one may make her as big as 4/5, which is massive value despite being odds on.


Rory Delargy, freelance journalist at Irish Field, William Hill Radio:

Shattered Love is a big price in the JLT.


Andy Newton, Mr TV Trends:

MY TENT OR YOURS (Champion Hurdle) looks a cracking option to place.


Nige Keeling, geegeez.co.uk’s resident news and weekend preview guy:

Flying Tiger 16/1 County Hurdle.


Some food for thought there that I hope will help you find a winner or two.
