The Cheltenham Festival is fast approaching and Betfair have a couple of new account offers available for new customers to take advantage of.
The first offer is on Ruby Walsh and his attempts to be the top jockey at Cheltenham for the ninth time, and a remarkable seventh time in eight years. Anybody opening a new Betfair account through this link can get enhanced odds of 3/1 on Ruby Walsh to be top jockey at the Cheltenham Festival, or your money back as a free bet if Ruby fails to win.
Walsh is a standard best price of 1/2 to win a crown he has virtually made his own recently, so 3/1 represents good value. Just for the record, Barry Geraghty is second favourite at 8/1.
The second Betfair offer is on the big race on the opening day of the Festival. Anybody opening a new Betfair account through this link can get enhanced odds of 5/1 on Faugheen to win the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, or your money back as a free bet should Faugheen not win.
Faugheen is a best general price of 5/4 to win. The Willie Mullins trained Gelding won the Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle at the Festival last season, and this year has won two Group 1 races, in the Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown, and the Ryanair Hurdle at Leopardstown. And just for good measure he will be ridden by Ruby Walsh.
Both these offers finish at 11.30pm on Thursday 5th March, and in both cases the maximum bet (at the enhanced odds) is £10.00. You can have more if you wish, but any amounts above a tenner will be at the standard odds. And don’t forget, you will get a free bet that can be used on the remainder of Cheltenham if Faugheen doesn’t win, or you would also have a free bet to use after the Festival finishes if Ruby Walsh isn’t the top jockey.
As well as these Betfair promotions, it is an absolute nailed on certainty that there will be plenty of Cheltenham Free Bets in the build up to, and during the Festival itself. I already have more promotions to bring you over the next few days, and I will be updating this site on a daily basis with all the latest Cheltenham Festival Promotions.
