Battle of the bookies: Oddschecker launches second Cheltenham Tipping League

Oddschecker has launched the second consecutive Cheltenham Traders Tipping League, expanding this year’s tournament to 11 operators.

Last year’s tournament was dominated by Coral, who ran out comprehensive winners with 141.5pts of profit, it meant that if you had staked £10 on each tip provided by the bookie, you would have ended the festival with £1415 profit.

The odds comparison site has detailed out the rules for the second operator competition:

·         Each trader is given 10 points per day to assign to any race or any horse (min 1pt, max 5pts).

·         The trading team must back at least two horses a day.

·         Each team has 20pts for ante-post tips (min 1pt, max 10pts).

·         Best odds are taken from Oddschecker when tips are sent in.

The selections can be seen in full below, but here are the Traders’ most fancied ante-post horses:
1. Tiger Roll (Cross Country Chase) – 9/1
2. Saint Calvados (Arkle Chase) – 6/1
3. Native River (Gold Cup) – 13/2
4. Next Destination (Ballymore Novices Hurdle) – 6/1
