Of course, one of the biggest things you me to know about Cheltenham is how to pick a winner. Building up to the week of racing you’ll find dozens of Cheltenham Festival tips, that are well worth taking into account.
We always take into account a range of factors when picking our winners. This includes:
If you’re a punter going to Cheltenham you can generally be a little more relaxed in terms of dress code. It isn’t like Ascot where you’re required to wear a hat, although many ladies do still choose to do so.
Most men will wear a suit, although fancy dress is also accepted as long as it can’t be considered offensive. This is particularly popular during the St Patrick’s Day celebrations.
One thing Cheltenham staff are very keen to tell punters is to dress for the weather. March isn’t the warmest time of the year and can often be wet. Car parks are on grass so Festival goers should be aware of this and adjust their attire accordingly.
Cheltenham is one of the most watched horse racing festivals of the year and can be enjoyed in a number of ways.
You’ll find a Cheltenham Festival live stream with most bookmakers and all you’ll need to do to watch a race is place a qualifying bet (usually £1) on a race to be able to watch it.
The likes of Paddy Power, William Hill and Betfair allow you to do this, as well as many more. In fact, most UK bookmakers will offer Cheltenham Festival streaming.
As well as bookmakers, you’ll also find live coverage of every race on ITV, with the main races of the day being shown on ITV 1.
Ladies Day at Cheltenham falls on March 11 in 2020, and is always the second day of the festival.
It always sees the ladies arrive in true style with a real offering of glamour arriving. There are always some big races on Day Two including the world famous Queen Mother Champion
