Cheltenham Festival News - Less Than Two Weeks To Go!

Interesting times lie ahead at Cheltenham.

One of the big favourites, Cue Card, has been withdrawn after suffering a small muscle injury. They gave him a week to see how he recovered and there was no improvement, so he's getting a rest. Hopefully we'll see him back in action for the National meeting in April.

2013 Champion Chase winner Sprinter Sacre has also been withdrawn, after pulling up at Kempton with a heart related issue.

Trainer Nicky Henderson believes the horse is still missing 10% and that, although that might still leave him with enough to win, they would do better to focus on restoring him to full strength.

The Cheltenham authorities also face a tough decision over current third favourite for the Gold Cup, Last Instalment.

His trainer, Phillip Fenton, faces a court hearing in March, just six days after the Cup, charged with possessing banned substances including anabolic steriods.

The British Horseracing Authority has carried out dope tests on all horses at the stable, and if the results are clear the Cheltenham authorities then have to decide whether to let Last Instalment run.

There are two nightmare scenarios for racing. One is for Fenton to win the Gold Cup, only to be convicted of doping offences six days later.

The other is to force a great horse to sit out one of the highlights of the year only for the trainer to be found innocent.

It's not a decision we'd want to make, and it's not one they'll take lightly. But rest assured we at Bonus Betting will be on top of the stories throughout the Cheltenham Festival, as we bring you the best betting bargains we can find!

Until then get your best hats ready and keep checking back for more!

Saturday Racing Roundup - William Hill Grimthorpe Chase at Doncaster

With less than two weeks to go until Cheltenham this weekend's racing is a little low key.

Nonetheless we're still seeking out the best betting bargains for you, and for this Saturday we're taking a close look at the 3:30 William Hill Grimthorpe Chase at Doncaster.

Widely tipped to be the favourite, Monbeg Dude, is a class act. With previous Grade 3 Chase wins to his name, including a Welsh Grand National, he's shown excellent form and seems likely to have more to give despite going up 8lb in the weights.

His odds are shortening all the time, but you can still pick him up for 9/2 at BetFred.

We have two longer range tips for you this time round as well, following on from our 25/1 success last weekend...

Sadly neither horse has such good odds, but we reckon Harry The Viking is a good shout at 7/1. His form has been patchy, but last time out he ran in blinkers and finished a strong third. Head over to William Hill to back him now.

Our longest shot for this race, though, is Real Milan.

His form has been indifferent at times since his early winning days, but we think he's heading back to better times. He ran strongly under a heavy weight recently, only fading at the end, and giving back 12lb will help greatly.

Furthermore, the ground will be slightly better which favours him, and his stamina seems to be solid.

We think he's well in with a chance, and you can get him now at 10/1 at BoyleSports.
Best of luck with your betting!
