NEWSFLASH: Tuesday March 12th is the best betting day of the year. Not only does it mark the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival but it’s the one day of the year when bookmakers give away cash and free bets, bucket-loads of them.
Paddy Power set the tone with a £/€10 risk free bet for new customers furthermore, and this Cheltenham free bet offer is open to all customers, there is money back as a free bet on all Cheltenham Day 1 races should your horse finish second third of fourth.
Similarly BetVictor are giving their new customers – who place a first time wager of £/€5 or more on any sport – a free bet on every Cheltenham Festival race plus a £/€10 Casino bonus.
Mr Green Sportsbook are another sportsbook giving out Cheltenham free bets, there’s one a day every day for punters who are unfortunate enough back the second placed horse in the second race of the day,that’s the 2.10 contest.
And Betway, they are on the bandwagon too with a free bet for all customers which manage to back a loser in both the first and last race in all four Cheltenham Festival race days. Of course a lot of these Cheltenham Festival free bets will come around as a result of finding a placed horse and if you are going to do so why not find a big-priced placed horse who can give you a dividend courtesy of an each-way wager.
Big-priced each-way Cheltenham play
Cash Drop Betting has a big-priced betting fancy amongst Tuesday’s races. It runs in the Unibet Champion Hurdle where the Irish-trained Espoir D’Allen is our tip at a mouth-watering 20/1 each-way. He’s won seven of his eight hurdle starts all on ground described as soft or yielding and with rain forecast to fall on Cheltenham throughout Monday night and into Tuesday morning he could upset the apple cart of favourite Apples Jade.
