Cheltenham Odds

Welcome to the Timeform Cheltenham Festival Odds Comparison service. Compare the latest betting odds from bookmakers, and the Betfair Exchange, and get the best price before you place your bets. Plus, don’t miss out on our top free bets offers.

You can get the best odds from our partners on every race at the Cheltenham festival. Whether you’re looking to bet on the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the Arkle Challenge Trophy or any other race at the four-day festival at Cheltenham racecourse in Gloucestershire, you just need to click on the race name to access odds from leading bookmakers including Betfair and Paddy Power.

The bookies start pricing up the Cheltenham entries months in advance and the betting odds on every horse will fluctuate right up to post time. As the horse racing tipsters and traders analyse the form leading up to the festival you can expect to see the odds go up and down. An early race favourite could be scratched, or a lot of money could be placed on an outsider which would cause the odds to change. Stay up to date with all the latest Cheltenham news here.

There are several factors that affect the odds but not all bookies will price up the race the same. With so many bookmakers to choose from our odds grid makes it easier to see who is offering the best betting odds for Cheltenham. You can compare odds from all our partners, starting with the race favourite right down to the outsiders. There can be a big price difference for some of the long shots, so our live odds feed could help you see a greater return by betting with a bookmaker that offers the best odds for your selection.

Look out for the betting promotions as well. Cheltenham is one of the biggest betting weeks of the year and our partners will be offering some of the best welcome offers and free bet incentives. Our live odds feed displays all the latest sign up offers and we’ll take you directly to the bookmaker’s page if you spot an offer that you like.

Our expert tipsters will also be proving you with their best Cheltenham Tips to help you make your selections before finding the odds.
