The Cheltenham Festival is almost upon us, but don’t forget there are plenty of options to watch all the Cheltenham Festival live streaming online and on mobile as fans can watch Cheltenham live streaming across a number of platforms.
If Hurricane Fly does what many people are predicting then he would become first horse since Hardy Eustace to successfully defend a Champion Hurdle title.
Willie Mullins’ eight-year-old was a deserving winner of the race last year beating the game Peddlers Cross by a length and a quarter and it could be argued that this year’s renewal is actually a weaker contest.
The challengers are headed by Nicky Henderson’s Champion Hurdler of 2010 Binocular, who has put his best foot forward this season after having a season to forget in 2011.

No horse has ever regained the Champion Hurdle though after relinquishing the crown, but the Henderson horse is a bit of enigma and can produced the unexpected against the odds, so rule him out at your peril.
Binocular landed the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton earlier in the season but of the last 21 winners of that race only one, Kribensis, has done the Christmas Hurdle-Champion Hurdle double. Meaning 20 horses have been beaten in the Champion after winning the Kempton hurdling showpiece.
The horse he beat at Kempton, Rock On Ruby, also holds an entry in the race but the trends are little more promising for his followers.
The seven-year-old finished second in the Neptune last season, which has proven a fruitful guide to the following seasons Champion Hurdle, and comes into the race as the highest placed finisher as winner First Lieutenant has gone chasing. In the last five years the highest placed finisher in the Neptune has a record of 11233 in the next year’s Champion Hurdle.
Paul Nicholls runs both him and five-year-old Zarkandar but the stats are heavily against the youngster as only one five-year-old has won the race from the last 87 horses to try.
Of the outsiders, Overturn has been turning heads of many each-way value seekers, but his absence since Christmas could count against him as the last 17 winners of the Champion have had a run in that same calendar year.
X Factor Final Odds : Jahmene the favourite with punters as James Arthur & Chris Maloney look value
X Factor reaches his climax as bookmakers are predicting a betting bonanza on Jahmene, James Arthur & Chris Maloney, as Paddy Power throw up odds & release free bets to spend on Saturday night’s live final.
Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur are representing Nicole Scherzinger while Christopher Maloney is still standing for mentor Gary Barlow. Who will triumph on Saturday? Here’s some things to consider.
One thing to keep in mind for Saturday’s show is the way the press are reporting each act.
X Factor Final : Paddy Power Offer

The build-up to this week’s final have gone pretty much to type, with Jahmene dominating most column inches as he has started to open up about his beliefs and past childhood experiences, which have deviated him from the normal X-Factor contestant.
He is a humble, and rather shy, singer that performs with a meaning. For example, on week six he refused to sing Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night” due to it having references to threesomes.
Jahmene doesn’t drink, smoke or even play around with women, and believes what’s in the charts these days is poisoning young people’s minds into becoming sex crazed, drink obsessed mercenaries.
This type of character goes against the grain of previous successful male X-Factor performers, such as JLS, Olly Murs and Shane Ward, who have all used their party animal side to promote their selves and get votes that way.
Although what Jahmene is doing is morally right, and will win him fans from maybe the more mature members of the audience, let’s not beat about the bush, the main demographic of the X-Factor is young, naïve teenagers, who are very much obsessed with the modern sex-crazed culture.
That may lose him some crucial votes. His team will be hoping his shy nature and troubled upbringing, which he admitted to this week to the papers, that included his father torturing his mother with a blowtorch before he was later arrested, will be enough to get people on side.
His voice and talent isn’t in question, and he’s likely to have a very succesfull singing career, but at the current prices for the outright win, a best priced 13/10 with Bet365, look rather skinny for our money.
James Arthur is vying for favouritism at the top of the market with Jahmene, and has been very well backed all week at 7/5 with Bet365.
Much like Jahmene he’s not really the conventional X Factor contestant. He has come out openly regarding his views on the show and how he would change things around so that he can sing his own songs rather than perform covers every week.
He is a real musician, with an edgy personality and voice. He can’t dance, doesn’t really get on with the press and speaks his mind. He can, however, produce a different style of music which he makes his own.
This usually doesn’t go down well with the audience, and despite being in the bottom two three weeks ago, James finished top of a recent potential winners poll launched by the Sun newspaper.
A very respectable 49 per cent of voters opted for guitar-playing contestant James while Jahmene scored 34 per cent of the votes.
But only 17 per cent said they wanted Liverpudlian Christopher Maloney to win. The public have been voting in their droves for this 80’s impersonator since the start and his time must have run out now.
The press have slaughtered him once again this week, and he looks the best bet of the night to be eliminated first at Evens with Ladbrokes. The joke’s over Maloney. It’s time to go.
It’s tough to call between James and Jahmene, but the wave of public momentum seems to be siding with James at 7/5 rather than Jahmene at 13/10. He gets a tentative nod to become the next X-Factor champion

What sets Paddy Power apart is that more often than not they will offer a money-back special along the lines of ‘if Wayne Rooney scores a headed first goal then all losing stakes will be returned’.
These specials are proving very popular with punters and and its easy to see why when those betting on an event can get some sort of saver option on their selections.
It is not only limited to soccer, Paddies are constantly adding money back specials for different events, including some famous money back specials on the Cheltenham Festival, which have gone down extremely well with punters.
Paddy Power appears to have gone down the route of ensuring their core markets are up there with the best, and as such do not offer the widest coverage of sports around.
If UK-centric markets are what you seek then Paddy Power is excellent in terms of value for money but it you want something a bit left-field you may be disappointed, although that is not to say there aren’t some alternatives to choose from.
Cricket, rugby, golf are all well covered, but American sports such as American football and Basketball are somewhat thin on the ground.
Mobile customers are also catered for as Paddy Power have also released their new mobile betting application which can be used in conjunction with a wide variety of smart phone platforms, including iphone, android and ipad devices.
With access to a whole host of live horse racing streams from racecourses the length and breadth of the country, users can now watch all the action on the computer, or use the smart phone technology provided by Paddy Power to stream the races direct to your mobil phone, meaning you can watch all the action on the move.
This gives an all round betting experience, and with their exclusive £250 free bet to pick up, daily money back specials on a variety of betting markets, it should see punters given a good run for their money.
Spain v Italy Odds : Back Italians with Paddy Power Balotelli offer for Euro 2012 Final
Spain and Italy go head to head in the final of Euro 2012 this Sunday as bookies offer free bets, as both teams look to make history by becoming European Champions this summer, with Paddy Power announcing their Balotelli cashback offer has been a resounding success for punters.
Spain are in their third consecutive major tournament final of course – an achievement in itself – while Italy have battled against the odds and poor preparation to make it all the way to the final.
Looking at Spain to begin with, they are well and truly on course to follow up their success at Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup by going all the way again. This has been a truly remarkable era for this team of course, but even this achievement would be unprecedented.
In their semi-final tie, it was far from a classic against Portugal of course. Neither team could break the deadlock in 120 minutes and in the end it came down to a penalty shoot-out, where Spain were victorious.
Spain v Italy Odds : Paddy Power Free Bets Refund
Paddy Power will kindly offer free bets worth £250/€250 to spend on the Euro 2012 Final, and will refund bets if Mario Balotelli scores the last goal! (which paid out against Germany!) Claim here!
This showed how well they could hold their nerve under pressure and they will be looking to do more of the same against Italy on Sunday.
As for the Italians, well they were excellent in their semi-final against Germany. After failing to take their chances against England – eventually progressing on penalties – they had Mario Balotelli in fine form and his two goals were enough to defeat the tournament favourites.
Cesare Prandelli’s tactics were spot on and even though Germany grabbed a consolation late on, Italy fully deserved their victory. They were professional, solid, classy and showed a unity that not many expected prior to the tournament.
They will fully believe that they can go all of the way too. When the two teams met earlier in the tournament it ended in a 1-1 draw and this should be another tight contest.
Looking at the teams, Spain are likely to bring in Cesc Fabregas after he was left on the bench against Portugal, while Italy will be tempted to remain unchanged.
With the world watching, the Euro 2012 final gets underway from 7.45pm on Sunday evening.
