The Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the jumps racing season and with it comes a series of generous betting offers which are worth taking advantage of if you are considering having a punt on the races.
You’ll find all of the available 2021 Cheltenham offers above and below we have listed the types of offers you can expect to find from the top UK bookmakers.
Extra Places are a common racing offer not just for the Cheltenham Festival. Extra Place offers apply to each way bets and give you an increased chance of seeing a return from the place part of your bet.
With each way bets, you are paid out if your horse wins or your horse finishes in one of the place positions. When Extra Places are available on a race, the place part of each way bets are paid out on more places.
For example, a bookmaker may pay out on 3 places as standard but may offer Extra Places for a race and pay out on the first 5 places.
With many punters tracking horses throughout the season in preparation for the Cheltenham Festival, there is often value to be found in Cheltenham ante-post bets. However, the risk with placing ante-post bets is that your horse may not feature in the race due to injury or other reason and so your bet has lost before the race has even begun. Several bookmakers offer ‘Non Runner No Bet’ offers which means that your stake is refunded should your horse not run for whatever reason.
If you are placing ante-post bets on the 2021 Cheltenham Festival then betting with a bookie offering Non Runner No Bet is recommended.
Enhanced odds, also referred to as ‘Price Boosts’ or ‘Enhanced Prices’ are a common betting offer with many bookmakers on a daily basis and many bookies will be offering boosts throughout the 2021 Cheltenham Festival.
Enhanced odds will be offered on specific horses in a race which is usually the favourite to entice customers in.
Cheltenham price boosts can vary in how much the odds are boosted by and can be offered to both new and existing customers. Boosts which are offered to new customers as part of a bookmaker welcome offer are generally a lot bigger and can have a lot of value. This makes the days leading up to the Cheltenham Festival a great time to open new bookmaker accounts to take advantage of the enhanced odds offers available.
Another popular racing offer are ‘Money Back Specials’. In horse racing, these are when you receive your stake back, either as cash or a free bet, if your horse finishes in a range of places.
For example, if a bookmaker was offering the following promotion;
‘Money Back if your horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th in the Gold Cup’
Your stake would be refunded if your horse finishes in 2nd, 3rd or 4th place.
These money back offers generally apply to win singles and the win part of each way bets.
Money Back offers for the Cheltenham Festival are great for when you are confident that your horse will finish in one of the top positions but unsure whether or not they have enough to go on and win the race.
Best Odds Guaranteed is the most popular horse racing betting offer and is available at a number of top bookmakers.
Best Odds Guaranteed will be available with several bookies for the 2021 Cheltenham Festival but not all so it is best to check prior to placing your bets.
With Best Odds Guaranteed, should the starting price of the horse you bet on be higher than the price you took, the bookie will settle your bet at the bigger of the two prices should your horse win.
Odds fluctuate throughout the day and so it’s not uncommon for a horse to go off at a much higher Odds than what was offered earlier in the day. Therefore, Best Odds Guaranteed can result in large unexpected returns from your bet and so it’s worth betting with a bookie which offers it for 2021 races at Cheltenham.
There will be a number of free bet offers in the run up to and throughout the 2021 Cheltenham Festival. Qualifying for Cheltenham free bets will depend on the offer but here are a few example of existing racing free bet offers and some which we expect to be available throughout the festival.
Betfair 3/1 Racing Offer – Back a winner in any race shown live on ITV or ITV4 and Betfair will give you a free bet to the value of your stake up to a maximum of £50!

888Sport 4/1 Free Bet Offer – Back a winner at odds of 4/1 or greater and 888Sport will credit your account with a £5 free bet. Available on all sports and not just on the Cheltenham Festival!

Around the time of the festival, you’ll find bookies offering bigger free bets, bigger enhanced odds and generally more value as they all battle it out for your business.
