The Cheltenham Festival is very much on the horizon, with a little under seven weeks to go until the famous festival gets underway, people are already making their preparations to either attend or watch the four outstanding days of top-quality horse racing.
And of course, part of the fun is the wide range of Cheltenham Festival betting opportunities that are available, and at the moment, you can enjoy a couple of great offers with a betting site that offers extensive coverage of Cheltenham and all the other meetings each season; bet365 Sport.
Those offers are the site’s Best Odds Guarantee And Non Runner No Bet promotions, and given that these deals are aimed at punters seeking to get their bets on early for the festival, if that includes you, then these are well worth a closer look.
Let’s take a closer look at these Cheltenham bet365 offers and explain how they work.
Bet365’s Best Odds Guarantee And Non Runner No Bet Offers
Both of these offers are concerned with the Ante Post betting markets available for the Cheltenham Festival with bet365, specifically the Cheltenham Festival NRNB (Non-Runner No Bet) list that is located in the Antepost betting section of the site.
In this section, you will find listed five of the biggest races across all four days of the festival, including of course the famous Cheltenham Gold Cup. Click on a race to discover the list of potential runners in that race and the current odds available for them in the antepost betting market.
The first part of the offer, the Best Odds Guarantee means that if you do place an antepost bet from any of these five races, and the price that your horse starts the race at is different to the price you took when you placed the bet, then you will always be paid out at the higher odds.
So for example, if you backed a horse at 3/1 to win one of the five races, but come race day, that horse has drifted out to 5/1 and wins the race, then you’d be paid out at 5/1. Similarly, if the price drifts in from 3/1 to 2/1 for the starting price, and your horse wins, then you would be paid out at 3/1.
The other part of the offer is the Non-Runner No Bet offer and this is a great value offer for antepost bettors as it means if you back a horse in any of these five races and if for any reason your selection does not start the race, then you will receive your stake back, rather than losing it as is the case in a typical antepost bet.
There are some terms and conditions to understand about the offer which are as follows:
General Offer Terms & Conditions
