The November Meeting at Cheltenham headlines this week's action and viewers were treated to three terrific days of racing. Irish fans had a top-quality card to enjoy at Navan on Sunday too, where the Lismullen Hurdle headlined the meeting.

Here are 16 winners from the last seven days who've made significant moves in the Cheltenham Festival betting markets.

Following the withdrawal of Edwardstone, Nube Negra was handed an easy task in the Shloer Chase, comfortably retaining his crown having gone off as the 1/10 favourite. Dan Skelton's star was then clipped into 25/1 from 33s in bet365's betting for the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Home By The Lee

All eyes were on Bob Olinger as he made his reappearance in the Lismullen Hurdle on Sunday, but Henry De Bromhead's star was upstaged by Home By The Lee, who stayed on strongly to cause an upset at Navan. Home By The Lee then entered Betfair's Stayers' Hurdle betting at 25/1, as Bob Olinger drifted out to 16s.

Ga Law

Despite a couple of wayward jumps, Ga Law got up after the last to beat French Dynamite in the Paddy Power Plate at Cheltenham on Saturday. Jamie Snowden's star was then cut into 66/1 to win the 2023 Ryanair Chase by bet365.

Zarak The Brave

Zarak The Brave opened his account for Willie Mullins in a 3YO Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Tuesday afternoon. Mullins' French recruit, who runs in the green Munir & Souede silks, was then cut into 12/1 second-favouritism for the Triumph Hurdle.


Milton Harris enjoyed more juvenile success at Cheltenham this weekend, as Scriptwriter followed in the footsteps of Knight Salute by winning the Finesse Juvenile Hurdle. Quinnbet then cut Scriptwriter in from 25s to 16/1 for the Triumph Hurdle.

Hercule Du Seuil

Willie Mullins' novice held on well from the front to hold off Imagine and Three Card Brag to win the For Auction Novice Hurdle at Navan on Sunday. Hercule Du Seuil was cut into 16/1 for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle, while also receiving quotes of 33/1 for the Ballymore.

Fennor Cross

John McConnell's raider claimed his second course-and-distance victory of the season at Cheltenham on Sunday, as he came through to win the Sharps Novices' Hurdle. Despite registering a victory at Grade Two level, Fennor Cross can still be backed at 40/1 in Betfair's betting for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle.

Ashroe Diamond

Aintree bumper winner, Ashroe Diamond survived a scare at the last to open her account over hurdles at Naas on Saturday. Willie Mullins mare was then installed as the favourite for the Mares' Novices' Hurdle, with Betfair going as short as 6/1.


Last year's Martin Pipe winner enjoyed more Cheltenham success on Saturday, where Banbridge ran out an impressive winner of the Grade Two November Novices' Chase. Joseph O'Brien's raider was then cut into 12/1 for both the Arkle and the Turners' Novices' Chase.


Having been pulled up as a precaution on his first start over fences at Wincanton, McFabulous made ammends with an impressive victory at Exeter on Monday. Unibet then introduced Paul Nicholls' eight-year-old - who's yet to make an appearance at the Cheltenham Festival - into their betting for the Turners' Novices' Chase at odds of 25/1.

Three Stripe Life

In a race marred by a fatal injury to Grand Jury, Three Stripe Life claimed a 12-length victory on his chase debut at Naas on Saturday. A Grade One winner over hurdles, Three Stripe Life was cut into 7/1 for the Turners' Novices' Chase and 8/1 for the Brown Advisory by Unibet.
