Cheltenham Festival Betting
The Cheltenham Festival is 4 days of top class national hunt horse racing taking place in March, and is the biggest betting event in the horse racing calendar. Here at Betfree247, we will bring you all the latest and best offers.
Running from Tuesday to Friday every year, with 7 races each day, giving us 28 top class events across the week, the festival is a top class event with the best horses from Britain and Ireland going head to head at one of the greatest amphitheatres in world sport, Cheltenham Racecourse at Prestbury Park.
The best way to make money on the Cheltenham Festival, and indeed on horse racing all year round, is by using Profit Maximiser. This is a betting service that makes risk free money from money back offers, and sign up offers. There is never a more profitable week of the year for Profit Maximiser members, than Cheltenham week. This is due to the amount of new customer offers, and reload offers. Reload offers are basically free bets for existing customers.
Cheltenham Festival New Customer Offers
There are always plenty of Cheltenham Festival new customer offers available. These offers generally become available the day of, or day before the race. They are usually enhanced odds offers. For example, in 2019, Paddy Power offered 50/1 on Presenting Percy to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the horse went off as 10/3 favourite.
Cheltenham Festival Existing Customer Offers
As well as having plenty of offers for new customers, there are also numerous Cheltenham offers for existing customers. These are usually money back specials, like money back as a free bet if your horse comes second, etc, etc. As the Chelenham Festival is such a big high profile betting event, these money back specials can be really good value.
In 2019, Skybet offered money back as cash up to a maximum of £20.00 on the first race of all four days of the Festival. While Paddy Power gave your your money back as a free bet on all races on Day 1, if your horse came second, third or fourth. You won’t see those types of offers available very often throughout the year.
Cheltenham Festival Antepost Offers
Early in the year if you are thinking of getting some good value of your Cheltenham Festival bets, then have a look for bookmakers offering non runner no bet on the big races. Bet365 has a habit of doing this in January on the four Cheltenham Championship races, the likes of Paddy Power and Betfair aren’t usually too far behind.
Then a few weeks later, usually sometime in mid February, some of these bookmakers will go non runner no bet on all of the 28 races of the Cheltenham Festival. This is great news, because plenty of the best horses are sometimes provisionally entered in more than one race.
Obviously the horses aren’t going to run more than one race at Cheltenham, meaning you are sometimes placing antepost bets on horses, not knowing if they are even going to run in that race. At least with non runner no bet, you know if your horse pulls out, you will get your money back.
