Cheltenham Festival 2016
The proper jump racing season is now in full swing and we have plenty to look forward to over the next few weeks. The Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury is always a massive race this weekend and with a potentially stunning Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown on the horizon, we are now really starting to get into the meat of the winter.
Willie Mullins dominated the 2015 Festival with the likes of Faugheen, Vautour, Douvan and Don Poli and they are just four of the horses we are going to be keeping an eye on again this term. Faugheen will surely be looking to defend his Champion Hurdle crown, while Vautour and Don Poli could well both be on track for a Gold Cup run in 2016 up against Coneygree.

Cheltenham Race Cards and Form
We have been following all the important horses this season as they have made their way to the Cheltenham Festival and the form guides are a top class aid for any punter. Each and every one of the 27 Festival Races has a dedicated form guide attached to it which has been running right through the winter to ensure they are as comprehensive as possible. Cheltenham Festival Form is vital when it comes to having a bet with the undulations of Prestbury Park often catching horses and punters out when it comes to the big Festival races. The same can be said of the Cheltenham race cards which will be available through each day of the Festival; they will give punters a quick and easy guide to any race including the very latest price for each runner.
The ante-post race cards for the four Championship races are now live on the site and punters can get all the information they need on the biggest races. The cards will be updated at each declaration stage over the coming weeks with the Gold Cup Race Card, the Champion Hurdle, the World Hurdle and the Champion Chase of particular importance.
