Horse Racing Betting at Bet365

Tiger Roll

Gordon Elliot’s Tiger Roll is going to get plenty of heavy backing on Wednesday in Cheltenham Festival 2020 betting. He is at 10/11 odds-on for his third straight win in the Cross Country Chase* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 03:13 GMT on Tuesday, 10th March 2020).

It’s hard to oppose him, it really is. He had a warm-up with a Grade 2 hurdle at Navan in February, his seasonal opener. He was fifth there but he was travelling well and it was just to shape up for this one.

Last season it was Navan, then the Cheltenham Cross Country Chase and then the Grand National. His last two wins at the Cross Country Chase he has followed with a victory at the Grand National. Tiger Roll will likely take the same route this year.

He’s clearly the one to beat.

Tiger Roll



There should be a good challenge put in by Easysland however. He is a course and distance winner having won a chase at this distance just back in mid-December. That six cross country starts and six wins from the six-year-old.

So he is the one that is most likely to upset the apple cart and take down the favourite. He comes in with some good claims therefore here for a follow-up success at course and distance.

His last run at Pau was an extended 3m 7f effort. Easysland has the stamina and punters fancying Tiger Roll’s reign to come to an end will likely lean heavily on him at 3/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 03:13 GMT on Tuesday, 10th March 2020).


Key Facts – Cross Country Chase Betting Tip

  • 9 of the last 12 winners had previously placed on the cross country course at Cheltenham
  • There have only been three previous double-figure winners
  • All but one winner since 2006 has been between 8 and 10 years old


Urgent De Gregaine

The 12-year-old is a course and distance winner. He has attempted this Festival challenge before and hasn’t taken a win. There’s little to suggest that Urgent De Gregaine is going to have enough this time around.

He was third in last year’s effort, 23l back of Tiger Roll. His last run was at Pau in January when he took a fourth-place finish. He has had a couple of decent warm ups.

Urgent De Gregaine may be able to push for a place at 12/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 03:13 GMT on Tuesday, 10th March 2020) but a win is going to require something special from him.

Might Bite

The former brilliant chaser will pass his dominant best. He had a run of three failures to finish before breaking it with a third-place at Newby in February. He ran pretty well on the day there actually.

This will be his first attempt at the cross country so there’s no telling what he is going to do and really has been rarely tried beyond 3m. He is a 12/1 e/w option and likely nothing more* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 03:13 GMT on Tuesday, 10th March 2020).

Worthy Mentions

Yanworth’s first chase effort at Cheltenham didn’t go well in December as he was a faller. But he did recover to pick up a third-place finish on his return in February at Punchestown.

But all in all that was two fairly disappointing efforts from him. He makes his Festival return after a 13th place finish in last year’s Stayers Hurdle.

Arlequin D’Allier, a stablemate of Urgent De Gregaine may be worth considerations for a place. He was a valuable handicap chase at Pau in January and he won an extended 2m 3f trip on the same track in December. He has amateur jockey Derek O’Connor in the seat.

Diesel D’Allier may have outside claims after having won the Cross Country Chase at the November meeting. He is a big 20/1 quote* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 03:13 GMT on Tuesday, 10th March 2020). He followed that with a second-place at Pau a month later.

Predictions & Tips

This is going to be all about Tiger Roll who should streak away to a third-straight success in the Cross Country Chase. Going into last year’s renewal he had won at Navan. That didn’t happen this year but still, it’s hard to find enough reason to oppose him.

Easysland is a very exciting prospect here and could easily be a future champion. He may do enough to keep the favourite on his toes, but the experience of Gordon Eliott’s Tiger Roll is the way to go.
