There is now just a week to go to the start of the Cheltenham Festival, and I’m sure a lot of punters will have already made their selections in most of the big races, but are just delaying placing their bets in case of falling foul of the AntePost ruling.
Well you need fear not, as bet365 are going No Runner, No Bet, all the way up to, and then throughout the whole of the Cheltenham Festival.
What this means to non horse racing aficionados is that we can place our bets on any horse we fancy to win at Cheltenham from now onwards, and if the horse doesn’t run, bet365 give us our stake money back.
Normally, if you place an AntePost bet and the horse doesn’t run, it is treated as a non runner and we lose our stake money – but not at the Cheltenham Festival, thanks to bet365!
As well as the No Runner, No Bet promotion, bet365 are also offering all new customers opening an account here a £200.00 Welcome Bonus – and the bonuses don’t end there!
bet365 also offer all customers their Channel 4/1 Offer, Price Promise, Best Odds Guaranteed, and full live streaming of the festival for customers with active accounts. And don’t worry if you are just opening an account, because you can still get all of these offers and the £200.00 Welcome Bonus.
There is 28 top class races in total at Cheltenham, the action starts at 1.30pm on Tuesday with Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, and goes through all the way until the last race at 5.15pm on Friday evening. It will be a betting bonanza of money back specials, bookies sign up promotions, and Cheltenham Free Bets.
The 2015 Cheltenham Festival promises to be as exciting as ever, and it is also likely to be an emotional affair with the legend that is AP McCoy taking part in his final ever festival on the saddle. Given this, there is also likely to be plenty of AP McCoy specials to take advantage off over the course of the week.
McCoy is due to ride JP McManus owned Carlingford Lough in the Gold Cup, currently a 10/1 shot. Carlingford Lough is joint fourth favourite with three other horses, with Silviniaco Conti currently topping the betting at 3/1.
bet365 already have a selection of Tony McCoy specials in their Horse Racing AntePost betting section, where they make McCoy 10/1 to be top jockey at Cheltenham, and 5/1 to be the top jockey at the Aintree Festival meeting in April.
