When it comes to sports gambling in Ireland, there is no doubt that gambling on horse racing remains our favourite choice. The Irish have always had a passion for horse racing and have produced top jockeys and trainers for many years, and Irish bred horses have raced successfully all over the world. Apart from the Grand National and the Derby, most people gambling on horse racing will have studied the form of the runners and jockeys before placing a bet, but there are so many other ways that horse racing gambling enthusiasts select their favourites. Some will follow a particular jockey or trainer wherever they are racing, others may follow the recommendations of their favourite tipsters in the racing press. There are also the course specialists, horses that seem to be regularly successful on a particular course, or horses that really enjoy certain conditions of the ground. Today at Cheltenham for instance there are two course specialists in the Handicap Chase at 13.55, with favourite Bradley expected to overcome a previous winner of the race in Midnight Chase. If you’re a horse race gambling fan planning to have a punt on this race Paddy Power have a money back offer which may interest you. If you fancy Midnight Chase but it comes second to Bradley, you get your stake money back. Bradley is currently being offered at 10/3 with Paddy Power, with Midnight Chase at 7/2 second favourite. The offer of course applies to any selection which comes in second to Bradley, not just Midnight Chase, and with heavy rain forecast overnight you may have other ideas to the winner in heavy going. Sports gambling and gambling on horse racing in particular is not necessarily all about form, there are so many other factors which may come into play on the day, although unlike a lot of casino gambling it is not just luck.
