    Post your Cheltenham Bookie Specials here...

    William Hill - 32 Days to go
    Buveur D'air, Altior & Might Bite all to win by OVER 2 lengths - 32/1

    Not for me

    Matchbook exchange 0% Commission until the end of the Festival is worth the change over. Hopefully Betfair will follow suit

    As the treble is only 13.58/1 best price that's not that bad is it?

    BVD isn't the perfect horse for any distance bet really BUT was over 2l last year

    Altior has stiff competition but did beat the likely 2nd fav by plenty more than 2L last time they met.

    Might Bite again isn't ideal because he idles BUT could easily have them all strung out.

    Certainly worth a second look?

    Agreed, worth a 2nd look - but a great deal will depend on what is already in your book.
    Not a huge fan of "Winning Distance" Specials anyway and I have B D'air and MB are well covered in numerous multiples.

    However, for those that haven't go these covered - it may be worth a cheeky point

    No I don't like distacne bets either as a rule. Mainly because I can't price up the difference between a win and a 2L win myself.

    Personally I'm tempted because I think that treble is too short but 2L isn't that far for it to be over twice the price BUT I want to check previous and average winning distances for those 3 and the 3 races.

    Also worth noting the "wording" OVER 2 lengths.
    I would hate for the bet to go down over a technicality (ie. Might Bite winning by exactly 2 lengths)
