The most backed horses on Cheltenham Day Three

The most backed horses on Cheltenham Day Three

We reveal the most backed horses through Oddschecker on the third day of the festival.

Paisley Park

Paisley Park's Cleeve Hurdle demolition job at Cheltenham in January still lives long in the memory and rates Emma Lavelle's horse the one to beat on that form. Still available at 7/4, Paisley Park is the most popular bet of the day.

Defi Du Seuil

In the first race of the day, Defi Du Seuil is the punters' choice and Barry Geraghty will be looking to open his account as he looks for his first 2019 festival winner. The 3/1 shot has won both his last two races on soft ground. 


A young mare Nicky Henderson has been bullish about in preview nights in the lead up to the festival, the withdrawl of Honeysuckle saw Epatante made clear favourite for the race and she is now best price 9/4.

Road To Respect

Expected by many to go the Gold Cup, connections decided to take a different route for the eight-year-old who hasn't done much wrong in three starts this season. Noel Meade's horse fell short behind Kemboy and Bellshill earlier this year but is well respected in the Ryanair market as 4/1 favourite. 

Sire Du Berlais 

Gordon Elliott's horse grabbed plenty of attention when sixth in the Leopardstown Christmas qualifier won by Cuneo and is just 1lb higher than when finishing fourth in the Martin Pipe at last year's Festival. He rounds off the top 5 and is available at 9/1 at the head of the Pertemps market.
