Horseracing enthusiasts are gearing up for one of the most important event of this spring, the Cheltenham Festival. Only a few days separate us from the start of this competition and the most important bookies have already announced their lineup of promotions and offers. More will come before kickoff and throughout the festival and we plan on keeping you up-to-date with all the relevant promos.

Paddy Power is ready to give all new customers a £5 bet to use on the Cheltenham Festival and this can be redeemed once per day. All that players need to do is to bet at least €5 or currency equivalent on any horse racing event until March 7 to receive the free bet. The Cheltenham MBS promotion stands for money back and the bookmaker will refund all losers if Douvan wins the Supreme or if Un De Sceaux wins the Arkle.

Betfair makes a similar proposition to all its members, with the amount being twice as generous and all those who place 3 Cheltenham Ante Post Bets qualify. This bookie dedicates ample coverage to horse racing events and more promotions are expected to hit the stores before the festival begins.

BetBright has a slightly different approach, with a total of £500 up for grabs in the form of free bets here, for all those members who place a £50 bet on British & Irish Racing events. For each such wager, players will receive £5 in the form of a free bet for the Cheltenham competition.


New BetVictor customers who believe that Willie Mullins can train a winner in day 1 should place a wager of odds of 6/1, significantly boosted by this bookmaker.

Skybet has a special money back deal for each day of the Cheltenham Festival:

Wednesday: Money Back if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd in the 13.30 Neptune Novices’ Hurdle
Thursday: Money Back if the favourite wins the 13.30 JLT Novices’ Chase
Friday: Money Back if the favourite wins the 13.30 JCB Triumph Hurdle

Non Runner no Bet offers at Betfair and Ladbrokes. Punters will have their stakes refunded if the horse does not run in any of the 27 races at Cheltenham.
