The waiting is over, we're finally here, with the Cheltenham roar signalling the start of the 2018 Festival. And we've got every area covered on Betfair - here's Dan Thomas with the lowdown...

"Plenty of short priced favourites at the Festival this week - fancy taking them on? Then our Daily Lays column from long-time Betfair contributor Jack Houghton is the column for you - Tuesday's tips now live here."

Whichever way you like to bet on Cheltenham, we've got it covered here on Betting.Betfair. Prefer to punt at bigger prices? Tony Calvin is your man - he will be here every day with his big-priced selections from the card - Day 1 Tips are live here.

And you're in the right place for value. We've had a Decade of Best Odds at Cheltenham (best odds of 94% of horses running at the Festival since 2008).

Don't miss out on the exclusive insight from Gordon Elliott and Paul Nicholls throughout the week. They will have runner-by-runner guides every day here on Betting.Betfair, as well as load of video previews on our social channels - check out Tuesday's here:

Our 'Bets of The Day' tipsters - Alan Dudman, Nick Shiamborous and Alan Thompson - have combined forces for Festival week, bringing you their best bets for each day - win only and each-way; Tuesday's selections are live here.

On the subject of each-way betting, only Betfair brings you extra places for every race on every day of Cheltenham, with our exclusive Each-Way Edge product. Check out our video for more.

Our friends at Racing Welfare will be picking an Each-Way Edge selection every day, with all winnings going to the charity. Head over to @BetfairRacing to catch up with their selection and vote on how to play it - extra places or bigger winnings.

Plenty of short priced favourites at the Festival this week - fancy taking them on? Then our Daily Lays column from long-time Betfair contributor Jack Houghton is the column for you - Tuesday's tips now live here.

Our colleagues at Timeform have compiled one of their legendary Preview Magazines for the Festival, taking a look at every race through the week.

And we're quite pleased with our Cheltenham Festival Punters' Guide - a whistle-stop tour through the Festival.

Of course there will be plenty of generous offers through the week. Don't miss out on our cracking Exchange promotion - place a £10 Exchange bet on the Championship race each day, and get a free £10 Sportsbook racing multiple for the next day (this becomes football on Saturday). T&Cs apply.

And you can get a free bet of up to £25 for every Sportsbook winner at 3/1 or bigger on the ITV races throughout the week (T&Cs apply).

Keep an eye on @BetfairRacing for extra places and industry best priced runners every day.

We have partnered with Rewards4Racing in time for this year's Festival, meaning you can collect points on every bet placed on the Sportsbook, which can then be spent at over 30 racecourses. Here's the lowdown.

Finally, have you had a go and what is being labelled 'the hardest horse racing quiz of all time'? See if you can Find 50 Cheltenham Horses. Be warned, you'll be tearing your hair out...
