The Cheltenham Festival, which is one of the biggest annual festivals of horse racing in the world, is rapidly approaching.

The four-day festival, which will feature more than 20 races, officially kicks off on Tuesday, March 15th and runs until Friday, March 18th.

The festival will kick off with the Supreme Novices Hurdle event, where Min is currently the favourite to win at 7/4. Other races scheduled for that day include the Arkle Trophy (Douvan is the favourite at 4/9) and the Mares Hurdle (Vroum Vroum Mag is the favourite at 6/4).

Day 2 will feature the Coral Cup and Champion Bumper events, amongst others. Un De Sceaux is the biggest favourite of the day, as he is listed at 8/11 to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase event. The Coral Cup is seen as being the most open of all of the Day 2 fields, as Diamond King is the favourite to win at 12/1.

Day 3 features a total of 7 events, including the Pertemps Final, the Ryanair Chase and the World Hurdle events. Limini and Thistlecrack are the two biggest favourites to win on Day 3 (both horses are currently listed at 11/10 to win their events, which are the Mares Novice Hurdle and Ryanair Chase respectively). The Kim Muir Challenge Cup and Brown Advisory Plate are the two events of the day which are seen as the most open of the Day 3 fields.

Day 4 will close out with events such as the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Foxhunters Chase and Grand Annual events. Next Sensation is the current favourite to win the Grand Annual (11/1 to win), while Don Cossack is seen as the favourite to win the Gold Cup (9/2).


Of all of the horses taking part in the Cheltenham Festival this year, Vroum Vroum Mag is seen as having the best chance of winning a race, as he is currently listed at 11/10 to win at least one event. This translates into implied odds of nearly 50%, which means that Vroum Vroum Mag is nearly a coin flip to win.
