The 2022 Cheltenham Festival is set to take place in less than a week at Cheltenham Racecourse in the UK. The Festival is a huge betting event in the United Kingdom and this year there are 28 races scheduled to take place between March 15th and March 18th, which means a lot of great betting opportunities for horse racing punters.
I know there are a lot of dedicated horse racing fans here in Canada who follow and bet on the Cheltenham Festival races each year so I wanted to add this article to provide a simple 3 step guide to betting on The Festival at a Canadian facing betting site.
