Top Jockey Betting at the Cheltenham Festival, is simply a bet on which jockey you think will win the most races over the 4 days of the Festival.
If there is no outright winner, ie. 2 jockeys finish on 5 winner each, then dead heat rules can come into the equation. So if you are planning to have a bet on this market, be sure to check the dead heat rules with your bookmaker first.
As Cheltenham is one of the biggest betting events of the year, it’s the ideal time to try Profit Maximiser.

This is due to the amount of new customer offers, and reload offers. Reload offers are basically free bets for existing customers.
Top Jockey Betting Offers
Top jockey betting is very popular at Cheltenham, meaning we might see some enhanced odds offers from the bookmakers. So keep an eye out for offers on this particular market.
This market is also fairly aligned with the Cheltenham Top Trainer Betting market. In general you will find that one top jockey will ride all the best horses from the stable of a top trainer. Meaning the chances are that the winners of both of these markets will be a regular jockey/trainer combination like Ruby Walsh and Willie Mullins, as Walsh generally rides all of Mullins’ best horses.
