Cheltenham Festival: 5 Market Movers

Betting Strategies | Article posted on March 3rd, 2015

Which Cheltenham runners have been attracting the serious money? Which Cheltenham runners have seen their odds slashed? With the 2015 Cheltenham Festival quickly approaching, as part of our Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide coverage, today Stephen Harris gives the verdict on his top 5 Cheltenham Festival market movers.
With the Cheltenham Festival starting next Tuesday and all firms now offering “non runner no bet” with all markets, it is time to examine five well backed horses across the industry and evaluate their chances of collecting.
#1 – Un de Sceaux
5-4 into 4-6, Arkle Trophy, 10th March.
A crashing fall on this highly regarded sorts chasing debut at Thurles was hardly the best preparation for the season ahead, but he has looked a top class novice in winning at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown since. The 7-y-o is a trailblazing front-runner with a huge cruising speed, and the way he disposed of the useful Clarcam and Gilgamboa last time out saw his price crash for this years Arkle. Many old heads can recall several “bankers” sunk without trace in this race over the years, but the current offer of 4-6 still seems very fair even with that in mind, and for many he is the cornerstone of the entire weeks punting.
Follow the money and secure the 4-6 with rivals thin on the ground. Betway now best price 4-6

#2 – Hostile Fire
16-1 into 10-1, Fred Winter, 11th March
Gordon Elliot is a man to follow when the money is down, and this lightly raced 4-y-o has been the subject of very strong each-way support across the industry in the past week. He ran to a fair level when finishing second twice in novice company on home soil, and took a big step forward when readily landing the cash at Fairyhouse at the end of January. His opening handicap mark certainly appears on the lenient side, and there is a very good chance he could improve dramatically for tackling much faster ground over hurdles (ran in some classy flat handicaps in the summer, including finishing second on the July course).
A race to be tackled with caution and numerous unexposed sorts primed for it, but the fact these connections have played is very significant….worth following the cash in each-way. Betway now 10-1
