The 2017 Cheltenham Festival is getting closer by the day, and we are already starting to see plenty of enhanced odds offers on the big races for new customers.
Two 1/3 shots in a double doesn’t even pay even money, so you are going to like the look of 888Sport’s new customers offer on an Altior and Douvan double.
888Sport are offering an enhanced odds double of 16/1 on Altior to win the Arkle, and Douvan to win the Queen Mother Chase, to customers opening a new account here. This offer is live until 2.10pm, on 14th March.
The minimum bet at 16/1 is a fiver, with £10 being the maximum bet.
All enhanced winnings are paid in free bets. With both horses around the 1/3 mark, that would mean a tenner would get you back roughly £153 in free bets, and £17 in cash (including your tenner stake).
The Arkle isn’t one of the 4 Cheltenham Festival Championship races, but the Queen Mother Chase is.
The Nicky Henderson trained Altior is an Irish horse, so it looks like one of the bankers in the Prestbury Cup Betting for Ireland. Henderson will also no doubt have the 7 year old Gelding penciled in as one of his best chances in his quest to beat Willie Mullins to be the top trainer at the Festival.
Douvan is owned by top owner Rich Ricci (well his wife), and will be classed as one of the bankers in Top Trainer Betting for Willie Mullins, Top Jockey Betting for favourite Ruby Walsh, and Top Owner Betting for Rich Ricci.
