The 2018 Cheltenham festival is about to kick off in just a few weeks’ time with anticipation continuing to build. The big day for the travelling Irish is St Patrick’s Day where there will be Irish music playing around the course accompanied by the usual fancy dress. One horse that is certainly set to headline day three is the incredibly tough and consistent Un de Sceaux. The latest Cheltenham 2018 betting has him as the 5/2 favourite as he looks to follow up his success in the Ryanair Chase from 2017 and enhance his two festival victories.
The now 10 year old has an incredible record which is why he is so popular across the racing public. In his 26 starts under rules he has won 20 of them and finished second in the other three. This record is also enhanced in the fact he has passed the £1 million earnings to firmly establish himself as one of the modern greats of National hunt racing. Even at the age of 10 he is going to take all the beating for the Thursday of the Cheltenham festival.
