Cheltenham Bookmaker Offers

This is mainly old information from Cheltenham 2012.  We will junk all out of date info below shortly and update with news of deals and offers for Cheltenham 2013 as the bookmakers announce them.

So far only one such notable announcement for Cheltenham 2013 that being from Victor Chandler. They are shouting about quite a good offer for those who like some early antepost action … with extra non runner protection.

They say

“Have a single bet on any Cheltenham Festival 2013 Antepost market and if your selection is a non-runner we will refund your losing stake as a free bet!

see the Victor Chandler site for full terms


From 2012

With all the major bookies – and some minor ones too – vying for your
business, The Cheltenham Festival provides a great opportunity for punters looking
to take advantage of some loss-leading offers. If you are thinking of opening
some new accounts, or simply looking to maximise your returns from Cheltenham
week, then now is the time to dive right in.

It is worth noting that the bookmakers tend to push the boat out at Cheltenham.
This is in marked contrast to the Grand National when typically they reduce
offers to new customers anticipating “House Wife” customers who may
have only one fun bet a year.

Here, to help you cut a swathe through the myriad options at your disposal
is our guide to the best Cheltenham incentives on offer.

Paddy Power

If you bet a horse (or horses, hint) in the Arkle Trophy, and Sprinter Sacre
wins, Paddy will refund you up to £100/€100. Surely that makes a
series of bets opposing Sprinter Sacre with Al Ferof, Cue Card and Menorah of
interest? The word on the street is that the winner is almost certain to come
from this quartet. Consider Dutching the other three (excluding Sprinter Sacre)
to a total stake of £100 to return the same amount should Al Ferof, Cue
Card or Menorah win.

Free £200 New customer offer: Open an account and place a bet at Cheltenham
and Paddy Power will match the stake of that with a free bet up to £50.
They will then repeat this until you have had the maximum of £200 in free
