Watch the Cheltenham Festival Live Online
“Football has Wembley, Tennis has Wimbledon, and Jump racing has Cheltenham.” - Chris Flavell
While there is always the fun element in luck when gambling, skillful betting on horses requires up to second knowledge of the record and health of the horse and the jockey, ground conditions, and competitors. And when you’re dealing with something as complex and dynamic as the Cheltenham Festival, with some 500 of Great Britain’s and Ireland’s most prestigious horses competing in 27 races within 4 days, you’re going to need the invaluable assistance of Bet365’s Cheltenham festival special, with live streaming, freshly posted odds and best price promise available now on their site. They also do a tie in with Channel 4, so if you bet on a winner for a race being shown live there, you get a free bet, something to definitely consider taking advantage of over the course of the Festival. And don’t worry, wherever you are in England, you will feel that roar as the festival commences.
It all begins Tuesday March 13th, Champion Day, the highlight of which is The Stan James Champion Hurdle, where we will see Irish Horse of the Year Hurricane Fly take the stage, with stars Peddlers Cross, Binocular, Zarkandar, Oscar Whisky, and Spirit Son among many others.
Ladies Day follows on Wednesday, with four Grade 1s, including the Queen Mother Chase featuring Sizing Europe’s bid for a rare Double Champion. This day also hosts The RSA Chase, where we get a preview of future Gold Cup contenders.

Thursday becomes St Patrick’s Thursday, and everyone will be celebrating if Big Buck’s lands an unprecedented fourth Ladbrokes World Hurdle this year. Also going for a record in The Ryanair Chase is Albertas Run, bidding for a third consecutive victory.
Finally, we climax with Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup Day, where the main event is nothing less than The Gold Cup itself. This is always a highly anticipated race, but this year everyone is bouncing between rivals Long Run and Kauto Star. Legendary 5-time King George Chase winner Kauto Star’s recent fall while training has fueled the energy, as bookmakers wait on edge for word from trainer Paul Nicholls on whether he will still run, and if so, will he be in good enough form to beat previous Gold Cup champion Long Run, a horse he has defeated twice in the last few months.
In the midst of all this are up and coming juveniles to start watching for, and every race will generate thrills for fans young and old alike. So, clear your schedule and bookmark Bet365 so you can get the most out of this year’s Cheltenham Festival.
