Selecting winners at Cheltenham is challenging, but your chances improve with the day’s Cheltenham tips, especially during race meetings at this prestigious track. Races here are consistently competitive, featuring top-tier horses, trainers, and jockeys. To simplify your decision-making, here are some general tips to consider.

How to pick a winner

Success at Cheltenham often favors horses that have previously won over the course and distance. The track’s unique features, like its undulating terrain and the notorious ‘Cheltenham Hill’, make previous victories here significant. Look for ‘CD’ next to a horse’s name on the race card, indicating course and distance wins.

Typically, the ground at Cheltenham is ‘Good’. Focus on horses that have shown form on firmer ground, as some may improve markedly from winter to spring conditions.

Be wary of hold-up horses that struggle to maintain a strong position on the bridle; such horses often find it tough to succeed at Cheltenham, especially during the Festival with its high-paced races and large fields.

Avoid horses known for inconsistent pacing or reluctance, as these traits are unlikely to lead to success at Cheltenham. Ideal candidates are those that can jump well, maintain a steady pace, possess ample stamina, and can handle the uphill finish at Prestbury Park.

Exercise caution with horses prone to falling and in Novice Chase events, where inexperience can be a significant disadvantage, regardless of previous hurdle form.
