Cheltenham Day 1 – Predictions

It’s the moment that horse racing fans have been waiting for – the Cheltenham Festival has now arrived – as have the Cheltenham betting offers! The races and subsequent participants have now been confirmed for day one. And for this reason, we’ve created our Cheltenham day 1 tips right now. Also known as ‘Cheltenham champion day’, the opening day of the festival consists of many top races. In fact, there are many grade 1 events scheduled to be held.

And in all honesty, the vast majority of punters are looking for tips on these races above others. As you’ve no doubt guessed already, we have broken down some of our main Cheltenham day 1 tips within the information below. Some of these markets you may have already thought about, and some you may not have! But without wasting any more time, let’s get into the real reason you are here – to find some awesome free tips.

Cheltenham Champion Day – tips for each race

Champion Day is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15th this year – meaning that the mentioned races will be held tomorrow! Of course, this is the day in which the famous ‘Cheltenham Roar’ comes to life. This all kicks off with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, and when there is a packed house, the noise is deafening. But switching our attention from the atmosphere and setting now, let’s discuss the tips and predictions for these various races.

Unibet Champion Hurdle

We may as well kick things off with the largest of the day one races – the Unibet Champion Hurdle Challenge Trophy. And the horse that we are tipping to win this one is ‘Appreciate It’. This horse has a 100% success record when it comes to hurdle races, winning 4 of 4 races during his relatively short career. Needless to say, Appreciate It is an incredibly powerful horse, and at 5.50 odds at many bookies, this shows awesome value.

With this said, Honeysuckle is an overwhelming favourite to win this one. But with odds of just 1.60 or slightly higher, we don’t feel that this shows great value. So for the Cheltenham day 1 tips for the Unibet Champion Hurdle, we are shooting for Appreciate It. But if you really wanted to go for a bet that has a high chance of pulling through, of course, Honeysuckle is an obvious choice. However, you’d need a sizable stake to gain any significant return on this horse.

As far as our Cheltenham day 1 tips go, this race should come down to these two horses as to who will win. But as they say – anything can happen on the day!

Supreme Novices’ Hurdle

With the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle kicking the whole festival off, this is a race where tips are in high demand. As expected, the field is looking fierce for this race, although we do hope for a closer contest than the 2021 event! Looking at the current markets, there are clearly five horses that are ranked far higher than the rest. These horses include Constitution Hill, Dysart Dynamo, Jonbon, Kilcruit, and Mighty Potter. But of the five horses mentioned, there is one that shows huge value!

In rather miraculous fashion, Jonbon has yet to lose a hurdle race in his entire career. And by ‘yet to lose’, we mean that he has won every single hurdle race entered. Looking at his form, he has won 3 of 3 hurdle events. The most recent of these was at Haydock back in January, which isn’t all that long ago.

So of all the Cheltenham day 1 tips, this is one of our favourites!

Mares’ Hurdle

Looking at another huge race now, we have the Mares’ Hurdle. Horses aged 4 and older can take part in the Mares’ Hurdle, as you may already know. And this means that for the 2022 race, some familiar faces have already popped up. This actually brings us nicely onto the Cheltenham day 1 tips that we have for this particular race. Looking at the list of confirmed horses, there is one pick that has caught our attention. This horse is Queens Brook – a horse at odds of around 5.00 to win the event.

Taking recent form into account, Queens Brook had a great race at Punchestown in February. The horse lost narrowly to Burning Victory, who is also competing in the Mares’ Hurdle this year. But in our opinion, Queens Brook had more to give on the day. And for the Mares’ Hurdle, we expect that the performance will be much better. To that end, the return on this horse would be fantastic at 5.00, if the horse wins!

But if this seems a little too risky, you can always shoot for an each way bet on Queens Brook too. Naturally, the odds are lower for this option, but the chances of the bet pulling through are obviously increased.

Arkle Chase

Last but not least, we cannot wrap this up without talking about the Arkle Chase. On Cheltenham Champion day, this one is always a joy to watch. And again, looking at the current markets for this Cheltenham day 1 race, one star shines out to use over the rest. We’ve taken the previous results and respective form into account for all horses, and we truly believe that Blue Lord offers amazing value here. The odds for this horse are roughly 5.00-6.00, depending on which bookie you choose to bet with.

However, we believe that the chances of this horse securing victory are much better than this. Therefore, Blue Lord is an undervalued selection for this Cheltenham day 1 event. All you need to look at is the most recent three races for this horse to know that form isn’t a problem whatsoever. In fact, Blue Lord has a 100% win rate for the previous three races. The horse is looking strong going into the Arkle Chase, and we would not be surprised at all if this horse took gold.

Alternatively, if you think that Edwardstone could win, which is a possibility, you could always go for an each way bet.
