Accommodation

The town of Cheltenham in England, best known for the Cheltenham horse festival in March each year, was originally founded as a spa town, and has been frequented by the well to do since the mid 18th century.
Cheltenham is very easy to reach by train from London and other major cities, and there are taxis and public transport, so if prefer not to rent a car, you have plenty of other options.
If you are looking for a relaxing break in a historic town you will find a wide choice: from 4 star hotels to comfortable guest accommodation, smart serviced apartments or the freedom of self- catering or caravan and camping.
If you want to get to Celtenham by air, there`s not a lot to choose between either Birmingham or Bristol airports. Both are pretty easy to reach Cheltenham from. From Birmingham airport you will have to get a train to Birmingham New Street then change for Cheltenham. Or from Bristol Airport, you can take the bus to Bristol Temple Meads and then the train to Cheltenham.
The racecourse is a little over a mile from Celtenham center, maybe a mile and a half from the railway station. During the festival there are shuttle buses from the station.

Finding the Cheltenham Champion Chase Betting page

If you have an account opened at one online bookmaker, and some money deposited in your account, you can start betting. First you need to find the event page for the Cheltenham Queen Mother Champion Chase race. This page can be found in the horse racing section, and selecting Ante-Post racing and some bookmakers feature a direct link on the main page to the event.

Betting stake

The betting stake is the amount of money you are willing to bet on a horse

When betting on a horse race, you will find the following betting types:

To Win - the bet will be placed on a horse to win the Cheltenham Queen Mother Champion Chase Race. The bet will be lost if the horse does not win the race.


Each Way -This bet is placed for a horse to come in any of the top 4 places in the race. This bet actually is formed of 2 bets. One bet is placed on the horse to win the race, and the full odds apply to this part, and another bet is placed on the horse to come in one of the top places and only a quarter of the odds apply this part of the bet. One Each Way bet cost therefore 2, with 1 being placed on the horse to win, and 1 placed on the horse to come in the first 4 places. The bet will be lost if the horse does not come in the 4 top places of the race.


Placing a bet

To place a bet, simply locate the horse you want to bet on from the bookmaker`s offer, place your stake (usually is minimum £2), and select which bet you are placing, "to win" or "each way"

The winnings

To Win bet - If the horse you put money on wins, the stake is multiplied by the odds to calculate your winnings and is payed along with the original betting stake. For example if a £10 bet is placed in a horse with odds of 10-1, the £10 stake is multiplied by 10 (giving 100) and is paid with the original betting £10 stake, for a total of £110, if the horse wins.


Each Way bet - If the horse wins, the first part of the betting stake is multiplied by the odds and paid with the original stake and the other half of the betting stake is multiplied by a quarter of the odds and paid aling with the original stake. For example a £5 stake on an Each Way bet (£10 betting stake) is placed on a horse at odds of 10-1, the original £5 stake is multiplied by 10 (giving £50) and returned with the original bet of £5 for a total of £55. The other £5 of the bet, is multiplied by a quarter of the odds - 2.5, giving a total of £12.5, and paid with the original bet for a total of 17.5. Therefore if the horse wins, the total winning will be £55+£17.5=£72.5
If the horse fails to win the race, but comes in the first 4, the first part of the bet is lost and the second part is multiplied by a quarter of the odds and paid with the original part of the betting stake. For example, a £5 bet (£10 bet stake) placed on a horse at 10-1 odds, the original £5 stake is lost. The other £5 of the bet is multiplied by a quarter of the odds - 2.5, and paid with the original £5 stake, for a total of £17.5.
If you win a bet on a horse, the amount you win, will be automatically credited to your betting account. You can then use the money to place future bets, or you can withdraw the money from your betting account (subject to terms and conditions) and the money will be credited to your credit or debit card.

Racing Tips & Predictions

HORSE ODDS BOOKIE TIPS
SIRE DE GRUGY 4.00 BET365 Last year`s winner has return to claim yet another title. He is the top favorite in this race and if everything goes well, the title is his.
DODGING BULLETS 6.00 BETDAQ A horse with a great experience on two miles race distance , who has very good chances at the title this year.
CHAMPAGNE FEVER 7.00 PADDY POWER They are some chances for him to win this race, but his recent form , winning only on race in the last 3 , makes me believe it will be very difficult for him to end in top 5. .
Mr MOLE 11.00 PADDY POWER Bokmakers favorite number 4 , the 7 years old horse has big chances to on podium. In the history of this horse the worst ranking so far was 3rd place, last time being in 2013.
BALDER SUCCES 15.00 BETFRED He started very well this year. Even so i do not think the 7 years old Bay Gelding has a chance for the podium. .
