We are only three days away from the Cheltenham Festival, a week labelled ‘the greatest show on turf’ by racing fans and one in which will see millions of pounds bet in the meeting’s 28 races.

This year, there are eight contests that are headed in the market by a horse shorter than 2/1. As a result, some punters are moving to group their hottest fancies in multiple bets in order to increase their winnings.

Of these eight shorties, there have numerous occasions in the build-up to next week’s action in which professionals have labelled a particular favourite as a ‘banker’. So much so that it is now time to distinguish which ‘jolly’ really is the best banker of the Festival.
