Is it time to start thinking about having a Cheltenham Festival Flutter?

Having a flutter can have different meanings to different people. Aside from puritanical types I’d say that most of us fall somewhere on the betting scale, from casual punter on one end (of course even the lottery is taking a financial punt, aka gambling) to professional gambling on the other. No matter the strategy or lack therefore of involved though, I find that it’s the sporting events and festivals that draw in the whole nation that really gets people going. The Cheltenham Festival, comically highlighted here in the BetWay video above is a great example of that and how we’re all on the same page excitement-wise when it comes to festivals such as Cheltenham, the Grand National and the like. Let’s not forget also that Cheltenham betting odds are available on all 28 races.

The Cheltenham Festival is steeped in history and attracts the best of the best whether horse, jockey, trainer or owner, and that in part of what draws us all in. To become champion jockey or trainer at Cheltenham is something that contributes to individuals becoming true legends of the sport. The same applies to horses that have made their name at Cheltenham. Think the likes of Arkle, Desert Orchird, Kauto Star and Al Boum Photo.

What I find makes times like this a good opportunity to have a punt too is the myriad of betting offers available. Whether that’s in the form of free bets, bet bonuses, odds boosts, sign up bonuses, you name it, there are incentives galore during racing festival, so if you have a bet in mind, now might be the time to strike. For me, I’m tempted to have a cheeky wager on JonBon in the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase, though with El Fabiolo currently at 2/5, I appreciate that the odds may be stacked against me somewhat. Since when is that a good reason to avoid having a punt though. Bet brave!
