Arkle Challenge Trophy 2019 Free Bets, Tips & Stats

  • Cheltenham Festival

    The Arkle is the 2nd race on the first day of the Cheltenham Festival. The Arkle is a Grade 1 National Hunt steeplechase and open to horses aged 5 years or older. The race distance is 2 miles and takes place on the old course at Cheltenham. With 13 fences to jump, the Arkle is the leading race of the season for medium-distance chase novices. Recent winners have included Douvan, Un De Sceaux and Sprinter Sacre. 

Arkle Challenge Trophy 2019 Tips
  • Lalor comes into this as favourite for the race, but he was beaten 12 lengths last time out by Dynamite Dollars (who is now injured). He seems to be favourite by default. Glen Forsa looks like a very interesting prospect beating Kalashnikov by 19 lengths last time and at 4-1 at the time of writing, he may just slip in to qualify for the Bet365 4-1 offer. Articulum is another that I like at a bigger price around 14-1
