Free horse racing bets and entry offers for Cheltenham November meeting with Paddy Power Gold Cup

Cheltenham is hosting a three day reunion this weekend with huge races to give punters plenty of opportunities to see their favorite horses race ahead of the big season.

Among the races there will be the features of each day, the Mucking Brilliant Paddy Power Handicap Chase, the Paddy Power Gold Cup and the Greatwood Hurdle.


Tiger Roll won the Glenfarclas Handicap race last year for a great precursor to the Grand National

There will be 19 races between Friday and Sunday for the incredible November National Hunting Meetings.

Among the races is the Glenfarclas Handicap Steeplechase, which has previous winners who have faced the Grand National including Potters Corner and two-time winner Tiger Roll.

The characteristics of the weekend, however, look like this:

The Mucking Brilliant Paddy Power Handicap Chase

Friday 13:45

  • Magical saint
  • Hatchery
  • Umbria
  • Moon over germany
  • Financial
  • Stolen money
  • Editor Of The Cottage
  • Bun doran
  • Return ticket
  • Fanzio
  • Kap Auteuil
  • Bathiva

Last year’s winner, Magic Saint, is on the shopping list ahead of Friday’s meeting.

Magic Saint is also among the first to take this as the jockeys have yet to be decided on the race.

Stolen Silver will be looking to justify the favoritism as the race approaches after winning the handicap debutants race at Market Rasen last month.

The race promises to be thrilling at just under 2m, as many have the capacity to storm it with the ground currently good to soft and good in places.

Paddy Power Gold Cup

Saturday 2:15 p.m.

  • Lalor 5/1
  • Al Dancer 8/1

Dan Skelton will win four of his stars this weekend, including My Drogo, Third Time Lucki, Nube Negra and the favorite of this flagship race, Protektorat.

Protektorat and Lalor, the nine-year-old coached by Paul Nicholls, appear to be the ones to beat in Saturday’s race.

The 6-year-old trained by Skelton has form to be reckoned with, with a 2m4f victory at Aintree in the freshman competition in April.

Lalor will however have to get back in shape after two successive Pulled-Ups on form, but we know this horse loves the Cheltenham track and could come back this weekend for connections.

Other notable chances include Midnight Shadow and Simply The Betts which has Bryony Frost on board.

Greatwood Handicap Hedge

This special race on the last day of the meeting is also wide open and will be interesting to see how the peloton is shaping up as the weekend approaches.

Some early entries include West Cork, Tritonic, Adagio, No Ordinary Joe and some outside chances with Ballyandy, Advanced Virgo and Esprit du Large.
