The Cheltenham Festival offers some of the most exciting horse races the UK has ever seen and the thrill of watching the horse you wagered take home the prize is excitement that you can’t buy. The Cheltenham Festival has eager bookies taking bets right up until the “bang” of the gun and the horses shoot out of their stalls. In 2012 the betting environment has changed due to mobile technology. This year punters can place bets using their mobile phones and avoid the frustration of long queue lineups. What makes this even more appealing is the punter will have any winnings they receive directly deposited into their account and won’t need to hold onto any cash or have a bet ticket in hand.
If you are looking for exciting horse racing and fast horses the Cheltenham Festival is the place to watch. Kauto Star is one of the highest favoured horses to win the BetFred Gold Cup and comes in at a huge 4 to 1 favourite. Long Run is also a favourite to win with 9/4 odds and it could end up neck and neck between these two lightning fast horses. In horse racing you never know who will win and it could be one of the huge underdogs which is Halley or Knockara Beau with massive 150/1 odds against.
If you look below we have posted the odds for each horse in each race as well as the odds for the Prestigious Betfred Gold Cup.
