We look at William Hill's "Win Any Race at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival" special market and pick out our top five bets.

As soon as the National Hunt season gets underway, jumps racing fans have already got one eye fixed on the middle week of March, when the Cheltenham Festival takes place. Placing Cheltenham bets at this time of year is risky business, as Non-Runner No Bet stipulations won't be rolled out until the New Year. There is, however, one special market that offers bettors a safety net.

William Hill is one of the few bookmakers to have opened a "Win Any Race 2022 Cheltenham Festival" market. If you back a horse in this market, then it doesn't matter what race it ends up in at the Cheltenham Festival, if it wins your bet will return a profit.

Betting in this market is all about finding value. Shishkin and Honeysuckle currently sit on the shortest prices, but seeing as both only have one race they will be pointed at, then you may as well back them to win either the Champions Chase or the Champion Hurdle.

Here are our top five value bets in William Hill's Win Any Race at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival special market.

Win Any Race at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival Tips - Top Five

5. Put The Kettle On

Put The Kettle OnWin Any Race at the 2022 Cheltenham FestivalGET 6/1 HERE

Cheltenham has become somewhat of a stomping ground for PUT THE KETTLE ON. Henry De Bromhead's mare is unbeaten in four starts at Prestbury Park, collecting two Grade Twos, the Arkle in 2019 and the Champion Chase earlier this year.

A return to the Queen Mother looks the most likely path for Put The Kettle On in 2022. However, the defending champion could come up against Shishkin, Energumene and Chacun Pour Soi in this season's renewal of the Champion Chase, a fearsome prospect for even the defending champion.

If things don't go entirely to plan during the regular season, the Mares' Chase could become a viable option for De Bromhead's Cheltenham queen, and she would be very hard to beat was she to sidestep the Queen Mother and turn up in that Grade Two.

4. Dysart Dynamo

The top two from last year's Champion Bumper, Kilcruit and Sir Gerhard feature prominently in the betting for all three of the Grade One Novice Hurdles. Kilcruit is a slighter, speedier sort, and will probably be campaigned towards the Supreme. Sir Gerhard looks more of a staying prospect, so either the Ballymore or the Albert Bartlett will be his eventual target.

Stablemate DYSART DYNAMO also impressed in bumpers last season, winning well at Clonmel and Punchestown under Patrick Mullins. In a recent article with the Racing Post, Mullins said that regular work rider, Mikey Fogarty thought Dysart Dynamo was better than both Kilcruit and Sir Gerhard last spring, so backing Mullins' unbeaten youngster at 8/1 looks a very sensible bet.

Dysart Dynamo also features in our 40 To Follow series. All four articles plus the full list of tracker horses can be found in the Horses To Follow section on our website.

3. Burning Victory 12/1

Willie Mullins' mare is best remembered as the horse who capitalised from Goshen's final flight fall to claim a fortuitous victory in the 2019 Triumph Hurdle. Injury setbacks restricted BURNING VICTORY to just one outing at Punchestown last season, but she has since returned to full fitness during a busy summer campaign.

Burning Victory was last seen running in the Cesarewitch at Newmarket, where she was narrowly touched off by the strong-staying Buzz. Given how well she saw out that grueling 18-furlong trip on the level, there's a chance the two could meet again in the Stayers' Hurdle at next year's Cheltenham Festival.

The Mares' Hurdle is a race Willie often sends several horses to, so she could end up there. Off her current handicap mark of 143, the Coral Cup could also be an ideal target for Burning Victory. 12/1 to win any race looks good value to me.

2. Run Wild Fred

Run Wild FredWin Any Race at the 2022 Cheltenham FestivalGET 10/1 HERE

Despite the fact he'd failed to win any of his six starts over fences last season, RUN WILD FRED was still fancied by many to win the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival. Instead, Gigginstown decided to point their novice at the Irish Grand National, where Jack Kennedy's mount was narrowly beaten by Freewheelin Dylan.

Gordon Elliott loves to target the National Hunt Chase and Run Wild Fred, a second-season novice with proven stamina, would be the ideal candidate for that Grade Two. If his handicap mark remains under 145, the Kim Muir remains an option. If it doesn't, then Run Wild Fred could even enter the Ultima Handicap Chase on day one. With so many options open to him, including the Grade One Novice Chases, 10/1 looks more than reasonable.

1. Latest Exhibition

Like Run Wild Fred, LATEST EXHIBITION sidestepped another run at Cheltenham in favour of a tilt at the Irish Grand National last spring. Paul Nolan's stable star, despite his novice status, was forced to shoulder a top-weight of 11-10 in that historic handicap and, after a crucial error at the fourth-last, did well to hang on for fourth.

Having been outclassed by Monkfish twice at Grade One level last season, Nolan decided Latest Exhibition had a better chance of winning that handicap than upsetting Monkfish in the Brown Advisory. However, given how Monkfish jumped at Cheltenham, he may regret the decision not to go for Grade One glory instead.

Latest Exhibition features in the betting for the 2022 Gold Cup. The Ryanair will also be considered, as will the Ultima Handicap, if his handicap mark remains in the mid 150s. Nolan has also mentioned a surprising tilt at the Stayers' Hurdle. Given his undoubted class, Latest Exhibition cannot be ruled out wherever he might turn up, so William Hill's price of 16/1 looks generous.
