Who will shine during the Cheltenham Festival 2024?

I just now caught this humourous video from Betway giving us a somewhat comical reminder that the Cheltenham Festival is just around the corner . It’s certainly a timely nudge if you ask me as the unmissable 12th – 15th March Festival is under a month away now and punters both serious and casual, are surely all looking forward to this feast of top class racing action and who will emerge victorious in these compelling matchups. Over four days and on both ITV Racing and Racing TV there’s little excuse not to tune in, and of course that can often be accompanied with having a flutter too. With so many races to choose from there is certainly no shortage of betting opportunities.

Every festival has its narrative, as the Cheltenham festival betting attests, and a horse or person to be etched into the history books. This years question just has to be the answer to the question of whether the Audrey Turley owned and W P Mullions trained Galopin Des Champs can win the Cheltenham Gold cup two years running? Having won as favourite in 2023, he’s once again in that position and in ‘doing the double’ would enter the history books alongside only 8 others to have won the prestigious event more than once, last being the Willie Mullins trained (yes, again!) Al Boum Photo in both 2019 and 2020.

Racing is all about making legends and so it would certainly be fitting if Mullins once again struck Gold in 2023 and 2024 likely resulting in both him and rider Paul Townend winning champion trainer and jockey respectively (again!). Time will tell how events unfold and I for one can’t wait to find out. Bring on that Cheltenham Roar.
