One of the biggest betting races of the whole festival, the County Hurdle always sees a huge field of quality hurdlers, trying to capture the £51,000 first price. Officially named the Vincent O'Brien County Handicap Hurdle, punters always focus on the County Hurdle when it comes to backing value each-way runners and the 2 mile hurdle over 8 flights, often throws up big-price winners. With fields of up to 28 runners in recent years, online bookmakers are always happy to give punters real value in this race, especially as it's one of the handicap highlights of the Cheltenham Festival, so expect 5 places or potentially even 6 places each way on the County Cup Hurdle. Of course, offering 5 places each way or sometimes even 6 places each way at the Randox Health County Hurdle is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will drive 2019 Cheltenham Festival new customer registrations for savvy bookmakers.

2019 Randox Health County Hurdle 5 or 6 Places Each Way

The Randox Health County Handicap Hurdle is one of the largest field races of any Cheltenham Festival. 24 to 28 runners has been the norm over the last 6 years and that makes each-way betting the order of the day. Both bet365 and Coral went 5 places each way with the 2016 County Hurdle and 2017 saw Paddy Power going 6 places each way at a 1/5 odds the place. Superb Story won this in 2016 for Dan Skelton, but since 2009 Willie Mullins trained hurdlers have won this 4-times, with Paul Nicholls also having a coupe of winners in 2009 and 2014. Mullins added to his tally in this race in 2017 with top-weight Arctic Fire defying all weight trends to win this at a whopping 20/1. The County Hurdle is always a tough betting race, so it's often worth following the market on the day of the race.

With anything up to 28 runners across recent renewals, online bookmakers payout the standard 4 places each way at 1/4 odds for this handicap hurdle. However with the County Hurdle being one of the biggest races at the Cheltenham Festival for each-way betting, a growing number of bookmakers over recent seasons have promoted an additional place or two, with 5 or even 6 places possible for the 2019 running. Remember online bookmakers have a new customer war chest for the Cheltenham Festival, so offering additional each way places attracts new customers who spot the value to be had. Naturally 6 places covers circa 25% of the field - a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.

At the time of writing, no bookmakers have extended beyond the standard each way terms. As soon as this changes we'll confirm details here.
