The weeks leading up to Cheltenham and during the festival, bookmakers throw money and offers and punters in order to try and take the opportunity to pull in new punters. As with any betting, punters can be pulled in and get carried away in the spur of the moment and part with their hard earned cash. Our philoshphy has always been to look at horse racing as an investment and a way to turn over a steady profit in the long run, the key being not to be greedy. For those who can take advantage of the CHeltenham offers, it is a great way to give yourself that "house advantage" and have the last laugh at the bookies.
We have listed below a couple of offers that there is absolutely no reson to take advantage of if you have access to the bookmakers of course!
This promotion is for new accounts only so if for whatever reason you do not have a Paddy Power account, they have surely got carried away with the generosity of this offer. They are offering Quevega (Mares Hurdle) & Sire De Grugy (Queen Mother Champion Chase) to win @ 12/1, enhanced from the 4/1 price for everyone else. Max stake is £10.
Paddy Power will refund stakes on the 2nd, 3rd & 4th placed horses in the Supreme Novices Hurdle. We would strongly advise the max stake of this offer (£50) to be placed on Irving at 2/1. If he wins then a profit of £100 will be brought in.If the horse finishes 2nd/3rd/4th you will get your money back. It would be a shock if he were to finish out the top 4.
If Hurricane Fly wins or comes 2nd in the 2014 Champion Hurdle on Tuesday 11th March Ladbrokes will refund losing stakes on every horse in the race, as a free bet up to £/€25. We see this as an excellent opportunity to have an almost risk free bet on The New One who can be backed at 5/2 with max stake £25.
If Sire De Grugy wins the Queen Mother Champion Chase, we will give you a free bet token equal to your losing stake, up to a max of £25. Stake not returned with the free bet token .
.We would advise strongly to back Captain Conan at 5/1, with the knowledge that if fav SDS wins, you will have the insurance.

These are the offers we currently feel are worth taking advantage of, if you come acros anymore let us know and we will add on to the list!
