You Can Take These Early Bet365 Cheltenham Offers Now Ahead Of Festival Week!

One of the biggest sports events of the year takes place in March in Gloucestershire as the great and the good of jump racing convene to contest the four-days of top quality action at the famous Cheltenham Festival.

The four days of action sees a number of Group 1 races taking place across the four days, with hundreds of thousands of fans expected to be in attendance across those days. A large amount more are going to enjoy their Cheltenham Festival betting online with their chosen bookmaker.

And if you are a fan of horse racing betting, and like antepost bets in particular, then bet365 Sport is one you should consider.

That is because the site has a couple of key promotions available already for the Cheltenham Festival as part of their Best Odds Guarantee And Non-Runner No Bet offers.

Both of these offers are suited to the antepost bettor seeking to get a little extra value on their Cheltenham Festival bets, than perhaps you would get if you waited to place your bet on race day.

Let’s now take a look at these offers in more detail and explore the benefits that they give someone placing a bet on one of the five big races taking place at the festival.

Bet365 Sport’s Cheltenham Festival NRNB Promotions

The first thing to note is that the two offers part of this promotion are based on the NRNB Cheltenham Festival Antepost betting markets that you can find in the Horse Racing – Antepost sections of the site.

There are five races in this section, on which any bet made can see either of these offers applied.

The first offer is a Best Odds Guarantee and this means that if you place a bet today on a selection in one of those races, and its odds are say 6/1, but by the time the race starts, your selection’s odds have increased to 8/1. If your selection wins then you will be paid out at 8/1.

However, if you take the 6/1 odds and instead your selection sees its odds shorten to 4/1, and the horse then wins the race, you will still be paid out at the 6/1 price. This means that regardless of whether the price of your selection drifts in or out, you will always be paid at the higher price.

The other offer is the Non-Runner No Bet bonus and this is a great value bet for antepost bettors as it means that if you back a selection in any of the five races, and come race day your selection does not run in that race for any reason, then you will receive your stake money back, rather than losing it.

So between these two offers you are guaranteed to get the best price available for your selection if the horse does run and if it doesn’t, then you will get your stake money back.

Here’s the main terms and conditions for the offer:

General Offer Terms & Conditions

  1. Best Odds Guaranteed and Non-Runner No Bet will apply to all Ante-Post bets placed on the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase, Stayers’ Hurdle, Ryanair Chase and Cheltenham Gold Cup from 12.00 UK Time on 3rd January 2022.
  2. These offers are only available to new and eligible customers. You can see a full list of your available offers by logging in and selecting the Offers section on mobile or the Promotions section on desktop.

  3. Offer applies to bets placed on Win and Each Way Fixed Odds markets only.
  4. This offer includes all races where we offer Win and Each Way betting.

What Races Can I Bet On With The Bet365 Cheltenham Festival NRNB Offer?

Across the four days of the festival, there are a number of very prestigious races, five in total, with one race on three days and Thursday sees two of these big races contested. You can place your antepost bet on any of the available selections at bet365 on all five of these races with bet365 to take up this offer.

Do remember that trainers and owners will enter a horse for more than one race initially and then nearer race day will declare which race that horse will compete in, which is why you will see a horse mentioned in more than one betting market. However, with the Non-Runner No Bet offer, you don’t need to worry about it not running, as if it doesn’t, you’ll get your stake back.

Here’s the list of races available for the offer, together with last year’s winner and some of this year’s more favoured potential runners and their odds.

Tuesday 15th March – The Champion Hurdle (3.05pm)

2021 Winner – Honeysuckle

2022 Odds – Honeysuckle (4/6 fav), Appreciate It (5/1), Sharjah (6/1), Epatante, Zanahiyr (10/1), Teahupoo, Quixilios, Adagio, Saint Felicien (20/1), Saint Roi, Tommy’s Oscar (25/1), Echoes In Rain, Monmiral, Abracadabras, Aspire Tower (33/1) – 40/1 bar

Honeysuckle looks a solid bet to repeat her success of 2021, but you can’t rule out Epatante, who is another previous winner of this race, while the good form of Appreciate It and Sharjah make them genuine contenders too. However, this race is the favourites to lose.

Wednesday 16th March – The Champion Chase (3.05pm)

2021 Winner – Put The Kettle On

2022 Odds – Shishkin (8/15 fav), Energumene (3/1), Allaho (5/1), Chacun Pour Soi, Envoi Allen (8/1), Greaneteen, Nuba Negre (9/1), Put The Kettle On, Captain Guinness, Hitman, Politologue (16/1), Sceau Royal, Editeur Du Gute (25/1), Allmankind, First Flow, Funambule Sivola (33/1) – 40/1 bar.

Put the Kettle on returns to defend the title he won last year, but the strong favourite, even in the antepost betting is the talented Shishkin. Energumene at 3/1 looks likely to be the nearest challenger if the owner elects to go in this race, however a number of the lower priced options here could run in other races, which makes Greaneteen and Nuba Negra good value options to oat 9/1.

Thursday 17th March – The Ryanair Chase (2.30pm)

2021 Winner – Allaho

2022 Odds – Allaho (5/4 fav), Energumen (7/2), Asterion Forlonge, Tornado Flyer, Mister Fisher, A Plus Tard (8/1), Saint Calvados (9/1), Envoi Allen, Janidil, Shan Blue, Chacun Pour Soi (10/1), Fakir D’oudaries (12/1), Melon (14/1), Hitman, Conflated (16/1), Put The Kettle On, Lostintranslation, Eldorado Allen (20/1) – 25/1 bar.

There’s speculation Allaho could go in a number of races at the festival but a return to defend the Ryanair Chase that the horse won last year looks most likely. Energumen could also go in this race but this is a high quality field with a number of previous winners and I think Fakir D’oudaries at 12/1 is especially good value each way.

Thursday 17th March – The Stayers’ Hurdle (3.05pm)

2021 Winner – Flooring Porter

2022 Odds – Klassical Dream (2/1 fav), Champ (7/2), Thyme Hill, Flooring Porter (5/1), Sporting John (12/1), Paisley Park, Thomas Darby, Burning Victory, Song for Someone (16/1), Royal Kahala, Melon, Asterion Forlonge (20/1), Sire Du Berlais, Aspire Tower, Commander of Fleet, Cilaos Emery, Koshari, Mollys Ollys Wishes (25/1) – 33/1 bar.

Another good quality field on Thursday sees Klassical Dream the short priced favourite for the Stayers’ Hurdle. Champ is a good option and previous winners Flooring Porter and Paisley Park cannot be ruled out either. Asterion Forlonge’s odds will shorten if the ride is declared for this race I’m sure and that is another to watch.

Friday 18th March – The Cheltenham Gold Cup (3.05pm)

2021 Winner – Minella Indo

2022 Odds – A Plus Tard (3/1 fav), Galvin (4/1), Minella Indo (7/1), Al Boum Photo (8/1), Protektorat (8/1), Allaho, Tornado Flyer (10/1), Champ, Asterion Forlonge (14/1), Chantry House (16/1), Royal Pagaille (20/1), Fiddler on the Roof, Lostintranslation, Ahoy Senor, Mount Ida (25/1), Delta Work, Eklat De Rire (33/1) – 40/1 bar.

A very high quality field sees Minella Indo back to defend the Gold Cup this year, with Al Boum Photo going for a third victory after winning in 2019 and 2020. A Plus Tard though is the current favourite, with Galvin also well backed, but this does look like being a very open race with a number of high quality options throughout the field.

Remember to check back over the coming weeks for more Cheltenham Festival information as we build up to one of the biggest and best race meetings of the year!
