The countdown to The Cheltenham Festival 2017 is well and truly on and bookmaker Paddy Power are celebrating the renewal with a massive top promotion. The Festival this year starts on March 14th for the usual four big days of racing. There’s nothing worse in horse racing really than seeing your backed selection get edged out into second place. That’s just first loser spot, but Paddy Power will be cushioning the blow this year at Cheltenham 2017 with their great offer.
On each of the first 5 Races every day at the Cheltenham Festival 2017, the bookmaker will refund your losing single stake as a free bet!
So if you have a selection running in one of the first five races on any of the four days of action from Prestbury Park and they come home second to the SP Favourite, then you will get your lost stake refunded up to the maximum of £20 per customer per race. This offer applies to win singles and the win part of each way singles only.
In cases where more than one selection is placed on the same bet slip, the selection with the lowest bet reference number will count towards this promotion. Just about the biggest news ahead of the Cheltenham Festival 2017 has been the in/out status of Gold Cup favourite Thistlecrack. Trainer Colin Tizzard said that he was out of the Blue Riband race, but on the announcement that a second scan had been ordered on his injury, punters started matching bets on him again.
But he is out and it is Cue Card who is running as favourite now to land the Gold Cup 2017 which would be a great way to end his fantastic career. The Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the Jump season and the promotion from Paddy Power means that big races like the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, the Arkle and the Championship Hurdle are all covered on day one.
Tuesday is the Queen Mother Championship Chase, with Thursday bringing around the Champion Bumper and the Ryanair Festival Trophy. Those are all covered by the Paddy Power Money Back Special for the Cheltenham Festival 2017 and so too will be the Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday, the race that every punter, every owner, every trainer and every jockey dreams of winning. Go and open an account with Paddy Power to enjoy this superb coverage and you can pick up £30 worth of free bets when you open an account with them too.
