Any horse racing fan will tell you that the Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the National Hunt season, and a horse racing event no one – from fans, pundits, and tipsters – will want to miss.
This year’s event will be held from 14 – 17 March and with the best horses across the Britain and Ireland line up for a four-day top-class horse racing event, the bookies do the same with top betting sites preparing all sorts of special offers for the Cheltenham Festival 2017.
In this article, we take a look at some of the best site offers you can find for betting on the annual festival.
One of UK’s most popular betting operators, Paddy Power seems to be offering the best betting options, markets and odds for that matter, when it comes to Cheltenham Festival 2017 Betting.
Bookies known for their price boosts and incredibly enticing offers will delight you with their in-depth offering eight different markets per each competition day. Starting from the Supreme Novices Hurdle NRNB where Melon has been made firm favourite to win at initial 11/4 betting odds which have later on been slashed to 5/2, across the Grand National Trial Chase, Paddy Power will even offer their customers betting odds for the Cheltenham Festival 2018 which some would call visionary, and other call it mad.
Out there in the same bracket with Paddy Power, the betting operator Betfair also boasts detailed Cheltenham Festival 2017 market.
With the total of 30 betting options to choose from, Betfair has done an exceptionally good job for all horse racing lovers who will be happy to see A Genie in a Bottle made a favourite to win the National Hunt Chase at 9/2, in front of the America who can be backed at 14/1.
Betfair offers a great selection of NRMB bets, which all of you will have to be careful about. As you all know, Ante Post rules apply until a day or so before the race, so with many races getting labeled as NRMB you will get your stake back if your horse does not get withdrawn from the race.
Extensive betting coverage of the Cheltenham Festival 2017 is provided by Coral as well. There is a huge selection of races and markets available for horse racing tipsters who can grab a good offer of 6/4 on Thistlecrack to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup, with Ante Post rules already applied for the race.
What punters need to be vary of with betting at Coral however, is the fact that those who are new to horse betting could have a hard time finding the markets they want as the Cheltenham Festival 2017 did not earn a section of its own on this operator’s betting site.
Clean, clearly visible and easy to manage sections can be found at BetVictor Cheltenham 2017 betting. However, unlike in-depth offering available at aforementioned betting sites, Bet Victor is offering Specials-related to Prestbury Cup, Cheltenham Top Jockey, Top Trainer and QM Champions Chase (W/O Douvan) that can be quite enticing to bet on.
