Cheltenham Festival 2017 On Severn Sport Preview

Tomorrow marks one of the most exciting weeks in the sporting calendar and one of the most hotly anticipated in the Gloucestershire calendar. Here at Severn Sport it’s no different.

Over the years we have introduced the world to the tipping prowess of one Michael Hedley-Ward and shown that you can have fun betting over the Festival week without breaking the bank. This year, the game has changed completely!

This year we are officially in association with The Responsible Gambling Trust. A charity put together to help promote the safe use of gambling to provide assistance to those who are affected by gambling and its addiction.

To go hand in hand with the promotion of safe and responsible gambling we are delighted to announce the return of Ryan Butler’s Betting On a Budget diary, which you’ll be able to keep up with throughout the week.

We are also excited to confirm that Michael Hedley-Ward is going to be defending his title of ‘Severn Sport Resident Tipster’ against nine competitors in the inaugural Severn Sport Tipster League.

Check back here on Severn Sport from 18:30 when we will be meeting the 10 contestants and assessing who are the front runners for the Tipster crown.

Let the games begin!
