The Non Runner No Bet betting special is now available with a couple of the online bookies. Paddy Power are offering non-runner no bet on all bets for Cheltenham placed from 9am on Tuesday 26th February. This takes the risk out of ante-post betting for punters. If a punter backs a horse for a certain race and it doesnt run in that race, they will get their money back. Paddy Power said, we all know how hard it is to back a winner at the festival and nobody minds being wrong, but not getting a run for your money really hurts. This is the time to go non runner no bet because all of the main trials are over and the form is there to be read let battle commence!.
Bet365 are now also non-runner no bet on all races at the Cheltenham Festival, which means that you can get stuck into their ante post markets with the safety net of knowing that if you back a non-runner you will get your money back. This is the fourth consecutive year we have been the first company to offer this concession. We have lost on all three previous years, but hope for a different outcome this time, said bet365 spokesman Pat Cooney. With 15 Festival races already priced up at bet365, theres plenty of scope to snap up some big odds on your fancies now, and then be in a healthy position on the day of the race.
