Cheltenham Festival: Unowhatimeanharry the headline act for day three

It’s day three of the Festival and today’s headline act is Stayers Hurdle favourite Unowhatimeanharry. Last year’s Albert Bartlett winner bids to make it back-to-back Cheltenham successes when he takes on a 12-strong field at 3.30pm today. The short-priced favourite has long been considered one of the bankers of the Festival and Oddschecker users have piled in on Harry Fry’s 9yo in the ante-post markets with 29% of all bets on the market leader.

A win for the favourite would certainly have Oddschecker punters smiling with 43% of them backing him in the last 48 hours and 19.2% of all accas placed this week including him too.

The former Champion Hurdle winner Jezki is next best with the punters, 16.7% of ante-post punts have been on the Jessica Harrington-trained runner with 5% of all bets from over the Irish sea in Dublin. 2015 winner Cole Harden received just 8.6% of all ante-post bets but has been more popular in the last 48 hours with 18% of stakes placed on the second favourite.
