Below is a run-through of some of the betting offers you can expect to see.

The welcome offer of almost every betting site gives new customers a free bet, which you could use on your selection in the 2024 Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Enhanced Cheltenham Gold Cup Odds

Bigger odds means bigger winnings, so taking advantage of the various Cheltenham Festival enhanced odds offers is a smart move. Multiple betting sites will boost the odds of certain runners in big races like the Cheltenham Gold Cup. For example, bet365 gave new and existing customers a boosted price of 9/4 on Galopin Des Champs to win the 2023 Cheltenham Gold Cup. That is an amazing price considering how easily he romped to victory in 2023.

Cheltenham Gold Cup Best Odds Guaranteed

Using a bookmaker with a decent best odds guaranteed promotion is essential to get the best value from your Cheltenham Gold Cup bet. The popular offer means you’ll benefit from any odds drift even after you’ve placed your bet, as you’ll be paid out at the greater odds if your horse wins. Some bookmakers are reducing their BOG coverage, but many should have it available for the 2024 Cheltenham Festival.

Cheltenham Gold Cup Money Back Offers

Several betting sites will have Cheltenham Festival betting offers that give you your stake back as a free bet, depending on how your selection gets on in a race. Getting your stake back through these offers eases the pain of an unlucky loser, early faller or even a horse that fails to get going. BetVictor’s Run For Your Money is one of the best examples, as it refunds the stake of your horse racing bet as real cash if your runner refuses to race.

Odds Updated 15/03/24

2024 Cheltenham Gold Cup Favourites

Galopin Des Champs is the favourite to win the 2024 Cheltenham Gold Cup, currently sitting at odds of 10/11. The 8-year-old easily won the 2023 Gold Cup, but will have to see off some big-name challengers to retain his crown. We’ll run you through the horses at the top of the betting for the 2024 Cheltenham Gold Cup below.

  • Galopin Des Champs – The 2023 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner is the hot favourite to retain the crown this year. The Willie Mullins trained 8-year-old is a jumps superstar, winning countless Grade 1 races, including the 2024 Irish Gold Cup in February.
  • Fastorslow – This Martin Brassil trained runner is the only other contender currently at single-digit odds to win this year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup. This 8-year-old has already shown he can beat Galopin Des Champs, finishing 2 ¼ lengths ahead of the heavy favourite in his victory in last year’s Punchestown Gold Cup.
  • Gerri Colombe – This impressive 8-year-old had several marquee victories throughout the 2023 season. A second-place finish in the Irish Gold Cup would be a great sign in most years, but he finished over 20 lengths off the winner and current Cheltenham Gold Cup favourite Galopin Des Champs.
  • L’Homme Presse – Venetia Williams has a solid chance of landing her first Cheltenham Gold Cup with this French-bred runner. The 9-year-old looked great on his return to the track in January, winning at Lingfield after a break of over a year. He could challenge heavy favourite Galopin Des Champs if he runs to his best.

Cheltenham Gold Cup 2024 Winner – Galopin Des Champs

The heavy favourite, Galopin Des Champs, justified his short price by capturing his second Cheltenham Gold Cup relatively easily. Grand National 2023 winner Corach Rambler stayed on strongly to finish third, a very positive sign for his chances in the big race at Aintree in April.

What is the best betting site for the 2024 Cheltenham Gold Cup?
