When it comes to jumps racing, the four-day Cheltenham Festival is the equivalent of the Olympics and World Cup all rolled into one.

Betfred - Cheltenham 2021 Non Runner No Bet
2021 Cheltenham NRNB
Betfred is a Non Runner No Bet on the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase, Stayers’ Hurdle and Gold Cup at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival. If your selection is named in one of these events and does not participate, your stake will be refunded. T&Cs apply.

The big upside of placing an ante post bet i.e. a bet well in advance of the race itself, is the possibility of beating the starting price for your selection by a considerable margin. The downside being that general ante post rules state that should your pick ultimately not take part in the race, you will still lose your stake.

Thankfully for those betting on the Cheltenham Festival, a number of the betting firms do away with this hindrance and make their ante post markets “non runner no bet” in the weeks leading up to the Cheltenham Festival. In this case you will indeed have your stake returned should your selection not run on the day. All the upside of possibly beating the SP, with none of the downside.

One of the very best value offers to the customer in our opinion. Best Odds Guaranteed takes all the worry out of deciding whether to take the current price about your selection, or wait for the SP in the hope that it will be bigger. If a firm offers Best Odds Guaranteed, simply always take the price. If the SP is shorter than the price taken, you will be paid out at the price taken; if the SP is bigger than the price taken, you will be paid out at the SP. That’s a win-win in our book.

Types of Cheltenham Festival Offers

So far we have touched on the types of Cheltenham Festival offers likely to be available during the Cheltenham Festival 2021, but how exactly do these offers/promotions work? Let’s take a closer look at a few of the more popular offer types likely to feature amongst the best Cheltenham betting offers in 2021.

Free Bets

Exactly what it says, and who doesn’t like a free bet? These are commonly included in new customer offers but are also frequently available to regular customers. Occasionally these will be completely no strings attached free bets, but more often they will be of the type “stake £10, get a £10 free bet” for example. The one thing to remember with a free bet is that the stake won’t be returned as part of any winnings.

Cheltenham: It’s A Bonus Bonanza

There may be a better four days of betting action over the course of the year than the Cheltenham Festival, but we certainly can’t think of them off the top of our heads.

What better way to ramp the excitement up still further than with an excellent betting offer or two? Remember to keep an eye on this page for all the details of those Cheltenham Festival betting offers and bonuses, just as soon as they become available.
