The Festival at Cheltenham is considered to be a jewel in the crown of jump racing and it comprises four days of action-packed contests. Taking place this year from March 13th until 16th, it is likely to attract considerable interest. Many individuals will be eager to place wagers in a bid to cash in on the event.
These days, there are many online bookies for them to choose from, including Sporting Bet. And, for those who are keen to make the most of the superb deals now available on the web, it may be worthwhile investigating the Sporting Bet free betting up for grabs.
It is thought that the event will attract a crowd of up to 230,000 individuals to the Cotswold Hills location and many eyes may be on talented hurdler Starluck. Writing on Bet123.net, Elliot Slater noted that although the beast failed to “cut much ice” last season, he is close to returning to racecourse action and may be involved in a bid to land the Stan James Champion Hurdle on the first day of the festival.
This may be something that Sporting Bet visitors wish to bear in mind when they are choosing which horses to back.
The writer noted that Starluck, who is now seven years old, was the “star of trainer Alan Fleming’s string” after he arrived at the yard from his native Ireland. Immediately, the horse showed his talent over hurdles, winning his first three starts before finishing fourth to Zaynar in the 2009 JCB Triumph Hurdle.
He commented: “Moving recently to the care of David Arbuthnot, Starluck is reportedly in fine shape and could run in one of a number of good races in early-February, (including the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton or the Welsh Champion Hurdle at Ffos Las), where if he performs well he may book himself a return trip to Cheltenham to bid again to land the biggest two-mile hurdles prize of all.”
Mr Slater went on to suggest that those on the lookout for betting tips, potentially including those keen to make the most of Sporting Bet free betting, may well be keeping a close eye on the horse.
