Cheltenham Festival By Rupert Adams

Cheltenham Festival: £250 Million Set To Be Bet – Bookies Face Terrible Tuesday

William Hill are gearing up for their busiest week of the year with the Cheltenham festival kicking off on Tuesday. Hills alone expect to take £50 million and predict an industry turnover in the region of £250 million. The festival starts with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and the bookies face the prospect of a shocking start should the red hot 11/8 favourite Getabird get punters off to a flyer. Getabird is followed by three other massive festival fancies and therefore the bookies are facing the prospect of a total meltdown.
