What is it?



  • The Cheltenham Trail is produced by Professional Punter and Racing Analyst, Andy Gibson, formulated using hours of intensive study and analysis
  • It offers you previews and reviews for most of the major UK and Irish Graded races throughout the National Hunt season
  • We follow the distinct pattern of races which culminate in full previews and reviews of the final 12 Grade 1 races at Cheltenham (Bumper and Mares Hurdle not included)
  • Your Cheltenham Trail will build up as we move towards the Festival in March, providing valuable intelligence to inform your betting.
  • New to this season! I will be using specific statements from my personal diary notes to cover extra races (usually on a Saturday) these will not be full previews with conclusions but will hopefully add plenty more interest for the weekend’s action.

What can The Cheltenham Trail do for you?
