For the Cheltenham Festival we are offering No Runner, No Bet on all 28 races! This means that your stakes will be refunded if your horse doesn't participate in the race. This means that if you bet on a horse before the cards are confirmed you have the security of knowing you'll be refunded if your chosen horse doesn't feature.


In addition to the betting odds that can be found across all races, we'll also be offering these betting markets in our Cheltenham Festival specials.

  • Biggest Winning SP
  • Championship Race with the Biggest Winning Distance
  • Constitution Hill to have to biggest winning distance in the Champion Hurdle.

When looking at betting on Cheltenham, you'll find some of the best Cheltenham betting odds in Ante Post betting. This is the method of betting before the racecards have been confirmed and due to the fields being of significant numbers, odds are typically at their highest price. However, when you combine this with the Non Runner No Bet offering at BetUK, you can find the best Cheltenham betting odds without the risk of the horse not running. Ante Post bets are available for all of the races during the Cheltenham Festival at BetUK.


Similar to the Each Way betting market, Money Back as a Free Bet is a betting offer that is sometimes offered on the feature races at the Cheltenham Festival, this means that you would receive your money back if you horse finished in a specific number of places in the betting. Typically, this is for horses that finish second but this is sometimes expanded depending on the race and the provider. Cheltenham Free Bets are difficult to come-by, so if you find this offer in your Cheltenham Betting Offers at BetUK, we recommend checking it out.


You'll see enhanced odds written in a number of different formats, particularly in the form of Cheltenham Festival specials, these are bets that are placed consistently and the bookmaker has decided to enhance the odds of the bet due to it's popularity. For example, if for the Cheltenham Festival, a large number of bettors were placing an accumulator bet on the four feature race winners and picking the favourites, this bet may be enhanced across a large number of Cheltenham betting sites.


If you're looking to maximise the potential payout of your Cheltenham Free Bets, then you would look at the various bet types available on-site, such as large accumulators, yankee bets or the Lucky Bet types ranging for 15 to 63.

These bet types aren't advised, especially for beginners but if you have a good knowledge of horse racing, you may wish to give these bet types a try. Accumulators will lose if you have 1 leg letting you down, so the preference for many is to use the 'Lucky' 15-63 bet types.


At horse racing festivals, you will find betting markets for the best trainer and the best jockey of the festival. These racing bets are, on occasion, easier to win than a standard race as you'll have a good idea of who the best jockeys and trainers are ahead of the festival and these bets are also a good way of hedging your bets on the festival, a jockey/trainer may not win a specific race but they're more likely to have a good festival overall.


If you're looking to claim your Cheltenham betting offer before the festival, it's likely you'll be looking to place your qualifying bet and perhaps use your free bets on the first day of the Cheltenham Festival. Here at BetUK, we have a wide-range of betting markets set-up for each individual race and tips pages set-up with the intention of providing you with all the knowledge you'll need to make an informed decision on who to back in each race. If you're looking for betting odds and betting tips for the races on the opening day of the festival, look no further than the BetUK blog.
