Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca

Make the most of this Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca with an exclusive free bet from Betfred.

The Cheltenham Festival hinges on the big races. The Champion Hurdle on day 1, the Champion Chase on day 2, the Stayers’ Hurdle on day 3 and the Gold Cup on the final day.

These races are the pinnacle of the jump racing year for the very best horses around and we have put together a Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca.

Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca: 1. Buveur D’Air

The Champion Hurdle is the biggest race for two-mile hurdlers.

And Buveur D’Air is the best around.

He has won this race for the last two seasons and is going for a hat-trick here.

His main opposition comes in the form of two mares from Ireland, Apple’s Jade and Laurina.

However, Apple’s Jade would appreciate further than two miles to be seen at her best.

Likewise, Laurina is unproven at this level.

That is why we’re siding with the remaining champ.

Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca: 2. Altior

The second leg of our Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca can also go to Henderson.

Altior is the banker of the meeting.

He won this race with authority last season, despite an injury-hit campaign.

This season has been more straightforward and he has banged in three top level wins.

Those victories take his unbeaten streak to 17 races, a sequence dating back to April 2015.

The opposition this year looks sub standard and it is impossible to see him being beaten.

Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca: 3. Paisley Park

The third leg of our Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca looks like a potential star of this division in the making.

This race lends itself to one horse dominating the division for years to come. For example, Baracouda, Inglis Drever and Big Bucks all clocked multiple wins in this race.

We think Paisley Park could be the next of those.

This one was well beaten in the Albert Bartlett Novice Hurdle at last year’s festival, but has looked a different horse this year.

He has won all four starts this season and won his first Grade 1 by landing the Long Walk at Ascot in December.

Emma Lavelle’s seven-year-old followed that up with a 12-length demolition of a good field in the Grade 2 Cleeve Hurdle here at Cheltenham in January.

That run set him apart as the best staying hurdler around and we fancy him to do the business here.

Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca: 4. Native River

The final leg of our Cheltenham Festival 2019 Big Race Acca goes in the big race of the week: the Gold Cup.

Native River won this race last season and can repeat the trick in 2019.

Conditions seem to be turning in his favour and he is quite simply the toughest stayer around.

We anticipate a return to the forcing tactics that burnt away the opposition last season.

There doesn’t seem to be a standout in the field that can live with his searing gallop and we are on him to be the first repeat winner since Best Mate.
