The 2020 Cheltenham Festival takes place from Tuesday 10th to Friday 13th March and many bookies have already started to release a number of Cheltenham betting offers. One of which is Non-Runner No Bet.
If you’re planning on placing your bets on Cheltenham early, Non-Runner No Bet is a great offer considering that there is an increased chance of your horse not running compared to betting on the day of the race. There are advantages of placing ante-post bets such as getting a better price or simply finalising all of your bets for the festival if you won’t have the time on the day. Placing your bet only to see your horse not running and resulting in you losing your stake without even a chance of winning is never nice and so Non-Runner No Bet is an offer which you should be taking advantage of with ante-post bets.
A number of bookies will be offering Non-Runner No Bet for Cheltenham this year. Some are quicker than others to release these offers but we’ll be keeping this page updated in the run-up and throughout the festival so that you now where the offer is available at.

Non-Runner No Bet is a horse racing offer which allows you take advantage of ante-post bets without the worry of your selections not running. As mentioned, you can often get better odds ante-post compared to those offered closer to the day of the race which is the main reason many punters opt to get their bets on early.
When Non-Runner No Bet is offered, if you place an ante-post bet and your horse ends up not running, the bookmaker will refund your stake no questions asked. There are a number of possible reasons why your horse may not run such as getting injured, illness or it gets entered into another race. That’s why it is essential that you place your ante-post bets with a bookie offering Non-Runner No Bet.
The majority of bookmakers will refund your stake as cash when your horse doesn’t run but some bookies may offer a refund in free bets. This obviously isn’t as good as a cash refund but is better than placing your ante-post bets without any insurance. When Non-Runner Free Bets apply, we will add them into the terms in the table above.
