Ladbrokes has revealed the nightmare scenario for the Cheltenham Festival, saying Buveur D’Air, Tiger Roll, and Champ are the worst results in the book.


Klassical Dream is the big mover on day one of the Cheltenham Festival according Ladbrokes, having been backed into 5/1 from 7/1 for the Supreme following strong support.

Apple’s Jade is now 2/1 favourite for the Champion Hurdle, with Buveur D’Air priced at 9/4 and Laurina at 7/2.

Later in the week, Chi’Tibello has been well backed and is now 10/1 from 16/1 for the County Hurdle.

“With no short-priced bankers as usual on day one, this year’s festival looks particularly competitive,” Ladbrokes’ Nicola McGeady told RacingTips.com.

“However, the horses we are running scared from this week are Buveur D’Air, Tiger Roll, and Champ.

“On day one we are happy enough to take on Buveur D’Air and are of the opinion that Apple’s Jade deserves to be favourite.

“The big money horse though has been Klassical Dream in the Supreme who is challenging for favouritism at this rate.”
