With what is proving to be quite a testing and tricky time for us all, we want to shake away the doom and gloom with some exciting racing trips and packages to look forward to come 2021 when things return back to normal…
Let’s start from the beginning
The standard to which all Cheltenham jockeys are compared to is the record seven race wins that Ruby Walsh set in 2009 and then miraculously repeated in 2016. However, with the man that many acknowledge as the greatest jockey ever hanging up his saddle, the battle is on to become the next dominant force at Cheltenham.
CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL 2021 BOOK NOW
The Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the National Hunt season that provides an unrivalled buzz as 250,000 people descend onto the beautiful Cotswold Hills over four days of scintillating action.
Champions are decided, heroes are made, and reputations are left in ruins as the finest horses, jockeys, and trainers battle it out for the highest racing honours and nearly £4m of prize money.
Jockey Paul Townend made it two in two years as he rode Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup winner Al Boum Photo across the finish line on the final day of the race meeting. It was the second time in as many years that the duo had won the Gold Cup and hopes are high in the horse’s camp that next year will see a third consecutive victory in the race. Horse racing punters are already growing with excitement over Al Boum Photo’s chances of winning the Gold Cup in 2021. Punters can visit cheltenham-betting-offers.co.uk to get a bet bonus on the race before wagering on the horse they believe will win the Gold Cup.
The National Hunt season is well and truly underway after the successes and losses at Leopardstown, with everyone now looking forward to the 2020 Cheltenham Festival. We saw a host of horses and their jockeys put their skills to the test, not just to claim victory at The Dublin Racing Festival, but to also prepare for the challenges of Cheltenham.
The nature of the Cheltenham Festival means that it is never about just one horse or, indeed, just one race. For instance, when we look back at Kauto Star’s final Gold Cup win in 2009, we should remember that same festival also saw Big Buck’s and Quevega digging out their own bit of history.

Altior is already an equine legend, a history maker, the best two-mile chaser of his generation. The chance to make more headlines and cement his indelible legacy comes at his happy hunting ground, the Cheltenham Festival, where his sole 2020 entry sees him bid for a third Queen Mother Champion Chase in a row.
With only a couple more months to go until the 2020 Cheltenham Festival begins, the ante-post betting markets are starting to take shape as the early bets begin to get laid. Many expert horse racing tipsters have already scoured the bookies looking for that extra value which going ante-post provides
