Cheltenham Apps Odds & Ends

Known and loved around the globe, the Cheltenham Festival in March is the world’s pre-eminent jumps race meeting, and brings together the very best hurdlers and chasers for four days of high-quality racing amidst the rolling hills of the Gloucestershire countryside.

The roll call of horses who have achieved legendary status as a result of their deeds at Cheltenham is endless — Arkle, Desert Orchid, Best Mate, Denman and Kauto Star, to name but a few. The Festival has also made the reputations of countless trainers, like Nicky Henderson, Paul Nicholls, Willie Mullins and Jonjo O’Neill, while Cheltenham has also long been associated with the greatest ever National Hunt jockeys, such as Peter Scudamore, Richard Dunwoody, Sir AP McCoy and Ruby Walsh.

Each of the four days of the Cheltenham Festival includes several high class feature races and so you can be guaranteed of seeing both well-established champions and up-and-coming superstars every day.

Champion Day on Tuesday is the first day of the Festival, and features the Stan James Champion Hurdle, the biggest hurdle race of the year and which is run over 2m ½f. Wednesday has traditionally been known as Ladies’ Day, and the feature race is the Queen Mother Champion Chase, over a distance of 2 miles. The third day of the Festival this year falls on St Patrick’s Day, which is only appropriate given the outstanding contribution that Irish horses, trainers and riders have made over many years to the success of the Festival. The major races on the day are the 2m 5f Ryanair Steeplechase and the Stayers’ Hurdle over 3 miles.

The Cheltenham Gold Cup, held on Friday is the highlight of the Festival, as it pits the very best steeplechasers against each other over 3m 2½f in a race that ultimately determines who will crowned the champion chaser for the year.

Form Guide

For a Cheltenham mobile app to be really useful, it needs to feature a comprehensive form guide so that you can take on the bookies well armed, with everything you need to know about how your tips are likely to run.

Live Race Streaming

It can sometimes be hard to get to every day of the Festival, so if you’re stuck at work but still want to see all the action, make sure the Cheltenham Festival apps you choose include live streaming of races.

Results and Race Replays

Make your own judgements on a horse or rider’s performance, or research your next bet, by watching replays of the races that have gone. Look for Cheltenham race apps that offer the most comprehensive video library of previous races.

Range of Markets

Cheltenham is a great time to take advantage of specials, so when you’re looking at Cheltenham apps for Android or iOS, make sure you can access the full range of special markets on offer.

Ease of Use

In the crush at Cheltenham, the last thing you want to do is waste time because you can’t find the form guide, or you don’t get a bet on in time because your app is not easy to use. Look for intuitive design that lets you access everything you need quickly from the home screen.
