The countdown has started and several bookmakers have decided to go Non-Runner
No Bet on the principal Cheltenham Festival races.
It’s that time of year again! The 2016 Cheltenham Festival is going to be one of the highlights of the sports calendar, with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle kicking things off and we’re then treated to fabulous races such as the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase and Gold Cup.
That effectively means that you can have a bet on a horse to win a particular race, knowing that if they are withdrawn or switched into a different race, you will get your money back on the race in question.
It’s a fantastic concession that can’t be knocked, with Paddy Power among those firms offering NRNB on Cheltenham and Totesport have followed suit on specific races such as the Champion Hurdle and Gold Cup.
Faugheen is the 2/5 favourite to win the big race on Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival, with the Willie Mullins raider a best price with Paddy Power although the Irish firm also have specials on how far the horse will win the race by.
Indeed, Day 1 and the remainder of the Festival could be all about Willie Mullins and the ace trainer has so many quality horses lining up to take their chances in races such as the Supreme Novices’, Arkle, Queen Mother Champion Chase and Gold Cup.
Paddy Power have a free £30 bet available when you sign up and make your first deposit, while Totesport have something similar in the form of a free matches £25 bet.
besides of Non-Runner, No Bet these firms also offer Best Odds Guaranteed which means you can take a price on any horse running at a UK or Irish meeting, with those odds set in stone unless the SP is bigger.
