The Cheltenham Festival is only days away so of course we are inundated with betting offers and promotions. Some are pretty confusing and very, very specific in terms of exactly what you can bet on, when you can bet on it and how you must use the offer if you qualify.

So setting them aside, we’re taking a look at a nice easy one today. It comes from Betfred and it’s very simple. They are paying FIVE places on each-way bets on a number of the Cheltenham Festival races. Each-way bets will be settled at 1/5 odds.

Betfred Five Places Races

There are nine races in total and unsurprisingly, they also happen to have some of the largest fields. That’s not a bad thing, they can’t payout on every horse in every race or they’d go bankrupt. So to get the extra place means the chance of getting some of your bet back if you haven’t managed to pick a winner.
