A friend at punterprofits has posted some must have information for anyone thinking of following the Cheltenham Races. As described by our charitable forum member are punterprofits, the Cheltenham Races have ” extremely large and competitive fields”.
How do we create an edge? Amoungst other stats, the average strike rate for horses running at the Cheltenham race course helps. Compare that to the strike rate of horses running at the Cheltenham ‘Festival’ races.
The article takes a look a the Handicap Chase at the Festival. Another way to narrow down the field is looking at weight and handicap ratings. Historical data of winners, ages, weights and handicap ratings can be a real help.
It’s a fact that horses who won races previously at Cheltenham perform better the following years. Successfull betting at Cheltenahm is all about narrowing down the field.
This year’s schedule at the Cheltenham Races is shown below. For previous years stats and results visit
our friends to get the Cheltenham stats you need to narrow the field. Data for day 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the Cheltenahm Festival is available. Enjoy.
