William Hill Horse Racing: Froch & Hatton Head William Hill Tipping Challenge

London, 9th March 2015. Some of the biggest names in British sport, including boxing greats Carl Froch and Ricky Hatton, have joined forces with the NSPCC and William Hill for The Tipping Challenge 2015.

Their aim is to raise over £50,000 to help fund the NSPCC’s vital work by picking winners at this week’s Cheltenham Festival.

The Tipping Challenge will run across the four days of the Cheltenham Festival (10 – 13 March) and each of the participants will have £1,000 per day, courtesy of William Hill, to bet with. On the final day (Gold Cup Day) they will bet with £2,000 instead of £1,000.

Other participants in this year’s challenge include nineteen-time champion jockey AP McCoy, Robbie Savage, darts superstar Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor and the reigning William Hill World Darts Champion Gary Anderson.

Over the past eleven years, The Tipping Challenge has raised £600,000 for the NSPCC and previous winners have included Alan Pardew, David O’Leary and Glenn Roeder. Thanks to the generosity of bookmaker William Hill, should the sports stars fail to pick the winning horses, the NSPCC is still guaranteed to receive £50,000. But it is hoped that they will have luck on their side, placing winning bets and raising a substantial sum for the NSPCC.

Champion boxer Carl Froch said: “I’m delighted to be taking part in this year’s Tipping Challenge at the world-famous Cheltenham Festival. I hope that Lady Luck will shine down on me and that I’ll pick the winners to raise much-needed funds for the NSPCC – a charity I’m proud to support.

All funds raised from the event will help the NSPCC continue its fight for every childhood, working with children to rebuild their lives and finding ways to prevent abuse from ruining any more.

William Hill Horse Racing: £1 lucky 15 wins a punter £6,282 at Cheltenham

Last year at the UK’s biggest and best horse racing meeting, the Cheltenham Festival, there were many big winners, but one stand out performance was by one shrewd punter whose £1 Lucky 15 won him an impressive £6,282.50!


You are most likely aware of a bet to win or an each way bet. However a ‘Lucky 15′ is one of the most popular bets that people enjoy on the races as it offers many different combinations and chances to win, and win big if all the bets come in.

A Lucky 15 is simply four selections consisting of 15 separate bets, and in order to get a return only one has to win. And as it is 15 separate bets, a £1 Lucky 15 will cost you £15. But as mentioned, if they all come in you are likely to win a lot more than you staked.

It isn’t as hard as it may first appear either; the four selections that scooped over £6,000 were fancied horses that all had a good chance of winning their respective races.

1. O’Faolains Boy at 12/1 in the RSA Chase – Ran in Albert Bartlett previous year (like 3 of last 4 winners) and finished in the top 3 last time out (like the last 26 winners).

2. Sire De Grugy at 11/4 in the Champion Chase – Had a run in the same calendar year (like the last 11 winners) and contested the Tingle Creek at Sandown (like 9 of last 13 winners).

3. Vautour at 7/2 in the Supreme Novices – Won last time out (like 15 of last 17 winners) and ran in the previous 45 days (like 16 of the last 19 winners).

4. Silver Concorde at 16/1 in the Champion Bumper – Won last time out (like 19 of previous 21 winners), Irish trained (like 16 of previous 21 winners).

Placing a Lucky 15 with William Hill is easy and four horses that have caught our eye for this year are the following*:

1. Douvan at 6/4 in the Supreme Novices Hurdle 10th March 13:30 – Willie Mullins, Rich Ricci and Ruby Walsh have combined for the last two winners of the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, with all three bringing Douvan to Cheltenham this time around. GET A GUARANTEED RETURN ON THIS RACE – MORE INFO HERE

2. Jezki at 5/1 in the Champion Hurdle 10th March 15:20 – The reigning Champion Hurdler and he will love returning to Cheltenham. He has improved every single year that he has run and should be in peak physical condition when it matters

3. Champagne Fever at 6/1 in the Champion Chase 11th March 15:20 – If Western Warhorse hadn’t managed to get his head in front in last year’s Arkle, Champagne Fever would be a three time Cheltenham Festival winner. He can make it three this time around in a race where the top two in the betting (Sprinter Sacre and Sire De Grugy) look potentially vulnerable

4. Road to Riches at 9/1 in the Gold Cup 13th March 15:20 – Ireland’s best chance of winning the Gold Cup, he’s a much improved horse landing the JNwine.com Champion Chase at the start of the season and also winning the Lexus at Leopardstown’s Christmas meeting. He will love the hustle and bustle of the Festival, jumps like a very good horse and is potentially still improving.

*prices stated at point of publication and will be subject to variation

A winning £1 Lucky 15 with the above selections at those prices would return you over £2,000!

As if that wasn’t enough to satisfy your galloping needs, we also stream every race from two tracks four nights a week and one track on a Sunday giving you the best greyhound meetings the UK has to offer.

Peterborough and Romford kick things off on a Wednesday night, before Thursday takes in Hove and Henlow, Friday we go to the William Hill sponsored track at Sunderland, and also Romford, our other sponsored track Newcastle, as well as Crayford plays host to Saturday’s delights, then it all comes to a close at Henlow on Sunday night.

If you’re really glued to the screen, you’ll be able to take in over ONE HUNDRED dog races, five nights a week.

With all those contests, you really need a good array of betting markets to keep you involved until the hare has completed its last lap, and the Home of Betting offers you that in abundance.

Each day we price up the Racing Post Flying Four, which is (usually) the selections of well-respected tipster Jonathan Kay.

Trap Challenges and Hotboxes cover the two tracks, as well as a few others, then you can also bet on the winning distances and favourites from the night’s goings on.

Racing Post form is provided for every race, not just the streamed stuff, and audio commentary is also offered on all the other meets while you wait for the live runs.

You could see the next Black Caviar or Mick The Miller right before your eyes, meaning this feast of four-legged merriment really is must-see!
