Back any horse for the Cheltenham Festival principal races and get money back if it doesn’t run
The 2018 Cheltenham Festival takes place between 13-16 March that means it’s just a few weeks away and all roads lead to this meeting as far as the National Hunt season is concerned.
The great news for antepost punters is that you can start betting on principal races like the Champion Hurdle and the Gold Cup now, safe in the knowledge that Paddy Power have gone Non-Runner No Bet for the big races.
The big races include:
The Champion Hurdle on Tuesday 13 March
Queen Mother Champion Chase on Wednesday 14 March
Stayers’ Hurdle on Thursday 15 March
Ryanair Chase on Thursday 15 March
Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday 16 March
It’s a simple case of having a wager on any of these races and you will have the Non-Runner No Bet insurance right there.
New Paddy Power customers can claim a risk-free bet up to £20 when they register with this popular bookmaker, with Buveur D’air trading at 4/7 to win the Champion Hurdle and the Nicky Henderson horse might take all the beating on the first day of the meeting.
Faugheen is an 11/4 shot, with Yorkhill trading at 4/1 and Melon available at 6/1 if you think the Mullins runner can claim the big one on the opening day.
