Cheltenham Offers from the Biggest Brands
The 2021 Cheltenham Festival is about to get underway, with all eyes on the Gold Cup at the end of the week to see if Al Boum Photo can make it an historic treble at this year’s event.
Willie Mullins’ horse has previously won at starting odds of 12/1 and 10/3 and heads into Friday’s showdown as the 11/4 favourite this year despite inconsistent form.
This is the second biggest event on the British racing calendar, behind only next month’s Grand National from Aintree in terms of prize money. Like the latter, it also attracts an audience from across the globe.
If you are considering placing a bet on Al Boum Photo this year, or even any other horse in the Gold Cup, it’s worth checking out a reliable preview to see what can we expect from the Festival.
In all there are 28 races taking place over the course of the four-day event, with seven each day. The forecast for the week starts with some light rain but is expected to get better before the festival has drawn to a conclusion.
Action kicks off at 13:20 local time on Tuesday with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. Ahead of the Gold Cup, there’s a slight change to the cards this year, with the addition of a Mares’ Chase on Friday. This has resulted in the Grand Annual being moved to Wednesday.
The Gold Cup itself is set to start at 15:05 on Friday; the middle race on the card.
With so many races to bet on and horses of all different odds, you should be keen to check out the Cheltenham betting offers to make sure you get the maximum return for your money.
These offers include 888’s £5 free bet for every race on the card when you bet £10 or more on the first race. Meanwhile, BetFred are offering £30 in free bets when you bet £10 or more on the Cheltenham Festival, plus an additional £10 in free bets if your selection doesn’t win.
Betfair are offering £50 when you bet £10 on the Cheltenham Festival, plus a further £20 every other day of the event. And SportsNation have another offer that stands out – bet £100 and get £50, as well as £10 back if your horse finishes second on the second race in any of the four days. They also guarantee the best odds for the 2021 Cheltenham Festival.
As large sums are involved in online play, the more offers you get involved with, the greater your chances of winning whilst also reducing your risk of loss in the process.
Cheltenham Festival is a huge attraction and don’t be surprised if more online bets take place this year than any previous. With fans not being able to attend in person and with more people working from home than ever before, you can expect more fans than ever before to be watching and backing their favourite horses.
Whoever you decide to back… best of luck!
