Cheltenham Festival 2024: Ante-Post Odds for Jump Racing’s Top Event

The 2024 Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the National Hunt season in the United Kingdom and will generate massive interest on online sportsbooks.

All of the top UK betting sites already have ante-post markets available on the main races, which gives punters the chance to grab some early value.

With that in mind, we have scoured the lists to identify three horses we think are worth putting in your Cheltenham Festival ante-post portfolio this season.


  • Marine Nationale fancied for the Arkle Chase.
  • Bunting looks tasty in the Triumph Hurdle.
  • Ile Atlantique worth a punt in the Ballymore.

Marine Nationale – Arkle Chase

Marine Nationale maintained his unbeaten record in devastating fashion at this year’s meeting, romping to an impressive success in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.

Barry Connell’s stable star will head over fences this season and is already prominent at odds of 11/4 in the Cheltenham betting for the Arkle Chase.

If he makes a winning start over bigger obstacles on his seasonal reappearance, those odds are guaranteed to disappear.

Bunting – Triumph Hurdle

Top Irish trainer Willie Mullins has saddled the winner of the Triumph Hurdle in three of the past four years and looks a good bet to enhance his record in 2024.

Several leading betting apps rate his Bunting as a 12/1 shot to win the race following an effortless success in a flat contest at Fontainebleau in March.

Brighton & Hove Albion owner Tony Bloom has already had plenty of success in racing and his latest acquisition could easily be another superstar for the Mullins stable.

Ile Atlantique – Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle

Mullins will likely have a strong contingent of runners in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle, which makes betting ante-post on the race a little tricky.

His Ballyburn has been well backed on new betting sites in recent weeks, but stablemate Ile Atlantique could emerge as another viable contender.

He looked an exciting prospect when winning a maiden hurdle at Gowran Park earlier this month and odds of 20/1 make him an intriguing each-way proposition for the Ballymore.
