    The Cheltenham Only Bettor Podcast entered its 13th week on Wednesday and Brendan Duke was back with a bang as he put up Captain Teague at 14/115.00 for the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle, before NRMB was implemented on the Betfair Sportsbook.

    The usual Betfair team of Natalie Green, Daryl Carter and Kevin Blake were alongside the Irishman, but only Brendan added to his Cheltenham Festival antepost portfolio.

    The panel looked back on a few performances from the week that was but spent the bulk of the show sieving through the Novice Hurdle and Chase races at the 2024 meeting.

    Novice races still a mystery

    The team looked at the eight novice races at this year's Festival and put up their selections at this stage for all of the events over both hurdles and fences.

    The big talking points between the panel were what races Ballyburn and Fact To File are going to go for, as that could change how they play the Supreme, Baring Bingham, Brown Advisory and Turners betting markets.

    The team also delved in the Grade 2 events at the Cheltenham Festival with the Mares Novices' Hurdle and National Hunt Chase splitting opinion.

    Overall, with the 2024 Cheltenham Festival now less than three weeks away there is still a lot of mystery in the novice hurdle and chase divisions for plenty of horses. That could make the next few weeks a tricky time for punters.
