The Coral Cup is regarded as the biggest betting race of Ladies Day and is for middle distance handicap hurdlers.
Watching the Cheltenham Festival from home has never been easier and with William Hill and you are treated to a brilliant betting service when betting through their website.
If you want to land a bit of a gamble, watching the Champion Bumper, via William Hill online portal could help you in your quest. As long as your William Hill account is funded, or you have placed a bet on the website within the last 24 hours, you will be able to view all available races
The £25 free bet provided by William Hill, restricted to new customers, is especially fruitful to use at the Cheltenham Festival.
The offer itself is a very generous one, which punters are advised to take full advantage of.
Punters signing up to William Hill are entitled to a healthy welcome offer up to £25. All punters need to do is sign up via Hills’ official sign-up process, which only takes minutes, and deposit £25 into their account.
Remember the key to accessing this type of bonus is to enter the bonus code, which for British and Irish customers is F25.
Once signed up the free bet is ready to be used.
All you need to do is place just one bet of anything up to £25 and your account will then be credited with a free bet of the same value. The bet placed has to be placed at odds greater than 1/5 and William Hill only return profit and not the stake if the bet is successful.
Once receiving the winning, punters are able to withdraw the money back into their account if they wish.
The William Hill radio service is probably the best horse racing service currently available to punters.
With the likelihood of 30 or more runners lining up in this one, punters are in for a tricky task to find the winner, but keeping an eye of some of the market leaders in the build-up to the Festival could be well worth doing.
A horse that looks an ideal type to take a plunge at the money in the Coral Cup is At Fishers Cross, who could end up being Rebecca Curtis’ second Cheltenham Festival winner following on from Teaforthree’s success in the Diamond Jubilee Novices Chase last season.
Horses owned by JP McManus are always popular with punters in big Festival handicaps and they could have the perfect horse for the job in 2013.
The horse won two very weak novice hurdles in the autumn but burst onto the scene when pulling very far clear with Inish Island in a valuable handicap hurdle at Cheltenham. That was over three-miles which is a good sign as even though the Coral Cup is run over 2m5f, the race is more run like a three-mile contest due to the ferocious early pace.
A strong-travelling sort, he´s a real classy horse and looks to have a big handicap in him, with a drop to 2m4f not expected to present a problem.
The ante-post quotes of 10/1 may look a bit short on first viewing but it’s definitely a price to watch closely in the coming months as McManus may decide to make the plunge with some of reddies.
Rivals are of course in high supply, with six or seven horses very capable of winning a huge handicap like the Coral Cup.
Of the contingent of horses just behind At Fishers Cross in the market, the one that could be a player at Cheltenham is Balder Sucess, from the Alan King yard.
He is a tempting looking 20/1 poke if he can rediscover his old sparkle that we saw in Triumph Hurdle.
