Jon Vine looks ahead to the 2020 Cheltenham Festival and throws up this massive 428/1 ante-post four-fold for National Hunt racings premier meeting which starts on Tuesday 10th March.
I understand we’re a long way out from this season’s Festival and many punters don’t like betting ante-post on a sport as unpredictable as horse racing. However, when I checked the price of this four-fold, I was blown away by the odds.
The four horses featured are proven winners at the track and look nailed-on to appear in their respective races. If everything goes to plan between now and March, I could see all four carrying very short prices into their respective races, so to see this four-fold offering huge odds of 428/1 with Unibet is a chance I simply couldn’t pass up!

10/11/19 Unibet Champion Hurdle (Grade One) 2m½f
For me, KLASSICAL DREAM’S victory in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle was one of the stand-out performances of the 2019 Cheltenham Festival. Ruby Walsh’s mount looked keen throughout, carrying his head low in fairly awkward fashion. As rivals stacked up behind the leader coming down the hill, Ruby asked his mount to go and go he certainly did. Klassical Dream pulled effortlessly away from some decent rivals and a superb leap at the last allowed Willie Mullins’ charge to saunter over the line virtually unopposed.
Klassical Dream backed up that showing at Punchestown, claiming the Herald Champion Novices’ Hurdle crown with the minimum of fuss. The way he progressed throughout the campaign bodes well for the future too and another unbeaten season could be on the cards for this talented young jumper.
10/11/19 National Hunt Chase Challenge Trophy (Grade Two) 3m6f
While both Klassical Dream and Envoi Allen offer plenty of value at their current prices, I think my best ante-post punt for the 2020 Cheltenham Festival could be CHAMPAGNE CLASSIC.
Unfairly branded “the worst horse Gigginstown own” after his triumph in the 2017 Martin Pipe, Champagne Classic made Michael O’Leary eat his words by defeating Penhill in the Grade One staying hurdle at Punchestown a few weeks later. Gordon Elliott’s charge then missed a whole year through injury, but shaped nicely on both his starts over fences last season, placing in two good-quality Graded races.
Champagne Classic was my ante-post selection in the 2019 running of the National Hunt Chase, only for injury to intervene again and rule Elliott’s eight-year-old out of the meeting again. The former Festival winner has been out twice already this season – a fact which points towards a trouble-free off season – winning novice contest at Fairyhouse before an effortless triumph over Discorama in a Listed race at Wexford.
Such has been the quality of his performances during the autumn, I don’t think Champagne Classic would look out of place if he ran in the RSA at Cheltenham. However, Elliott has already identified the National Hunt Chase as his Festival objective and Jamie Codd will more-than-likely take the ride. If he stays fit – and that has proven a very big if over the last two years – then Champagne Classic will be very hard to beat in this three-and-three-quarter mile contest.
11/11/19 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle (Grade One) 2m5f
ENVOI ALLEN couldn’t have been any more impressive on his jumping debut earlier this month. Gordon Elliott’s Champion Bumper winner looked a natural on his hurdling debut, winning comfortably without ever coming off the bridle. I would be surprised if Envoi Allen didn’t win a Grade One over hurdles before Christmas and he could even enter Cheltenham as the best-backed horse of the entire meeting.
Elliott’s charge didn’t look short of speed when winning over two-miles on his reappearance and, with the fitness of stablemate Malone Road still up in the air, there is a chance Envoi Allen could end up in the Supreme. That being said, Gordon Elliott has chosen to target the Ballymore with his top novice hurdler in recent seasons and that race would suit Envoi Allen perfectly.
11/11/19 Glenfarclas Chase (A Cross Country Chase) (Class 2) 3m6f
A fairly obvious selection you might say, but by the time Cheltenham rolls around, you won’t finda price better than evens on TIGER ROLL making it three in a row in the Cross Country, so the time to back Gordon Elliott’s stable star is right now.
Elliott has already outlined Tiger Rolls route back to the Grand National, where he will bid to become the first horse in history to win that famous handicap three times in a row. A return to the Boyne Hurdle Tiger Roll won last season is first on the agenda, before Keith Donoghue’s mount bids to land a hat-trick of Cross Country victories, having retained his crown with a stunning 22- length triumph in 2019.
I could see this four-fold returning around 30/1 or 40/1 if all four make it to the Festival as planned, so the price currently on offer with Unibet offers fantastic value for money!
