This years Cheltenham Festival 2019 is just around the corner and there are loads of great offers to take advantage of!
To make the week go as well as possible we found the best offers amongst Paddy Power, Bet365 and Betfair. Read on to find out what each site is offering and how you can have the best possible Cheltenham Festival 2019!
Betfair is doing a Cheltenham Countdown Special. These specials will change each day so make sure to check what their current one is. Today’s is Buveur Dair (Champion Hurdle) Altior (Champion Chase) and Epatante (Mares Novice Hurdle) all to win at 14/1.
Betfair also has a specials section. The racing OddsBoost changes each day but has offers on various different upcoming meets. However, if you’re struggling to just pick one winning horse then there is also the #OddsOnThat section. On here you can bet on various different trainer related outcomes. For example, you can get Willie Mullins to train 4 or more winners at Cheltenham Festival 2019 at EVS. This is exciting to bet on because you can be cheering on several horses at once.
The festival is being broadcasted on ITV and Bet365 have an offer for that. If you place a Win or Each Way from 10am on the day of the race then Bet365 promise they’ll give you the best price or joint best price with other leading bookmakers. The race does have to be shown live on ITV though so make sure the specific race is going to be broadcast first.
Bet365 will also pay out on whichever odds are higher in terms of the starting price or the price you took. For example, if you back a horse at 3/1 but the horse went on to win at 4/1, you would get paid out at 4/1!
If you are unsure as to whether a horse will win or will place then Bet365 is a good site to bet with for each way. Paddy Power and Betfair are offering 1/5 payout odds for each way whereas Bet365 are offering 1/4 odds. This means Bet365 will pay more for 2nd 3rd of 4th place finishers if you have backed them each way.
Paddy Power has a fantastic opening day offer. They are offering money-back as a free bet if your horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th on win or the win part of EW bets. But remember this is only for the first day
Like Betfair they have a #WhatsOnPaddy section. This includes multiples for trainers in terms of how many winners they will have on each day or the festival. This makes it exciting as in some races you could be wanting three separate horses to win for your bet.
Finally, Paddy Power is paying out five places on all handicap races instead of four places. So if you back a horse each way and it comes fifth your still a winner.
Thankfully all three bookmakers are offering No Runner No Bet. So if you back a horse now and it doesn’t run it doesn’t matter as they’ll all refund you. What all three bookmakers also have is specific terms and conditions. Make sure that you check all these T’s and C’s before placing bets.
