Cheltenham Offers for Existing Customers

These offers are available to both new and existing customers. All bookmakers have revealed their offers for day 4 now.

  • First Race Every Day – Double Your Winnings If Your Horse Wins

Coral is the first to announce their leading offer for Cheltenham. You can get double winnings on the first race (1.30pm) every day and it will be paid as cash. There is a maximum of £25 extra you can win and it applies to the first bet you place on the race.

  • First & Last Race Every Day -Money Back If You Lose

If your hose loses in the first or last race at Cheltenham each day, then Betway will refund your losing stake as a free bet.

You can get maximum money back of £10. You can do this for both races each day.


  • Cheltenham Day 4 – Money Back on all Losers if ‘Sir Erec’ Wins the 13.30

There is one final money back special from Paddy Power for Cheltenham and it’s for the first race of the day.

Paddy Power are paying money back on all losers if Sir Erec wins the 13.30.  He is priced up 1.8 currently to win this race, which gives him a 55% probability he will win. The rest of the field have much longer odds and is more open. This would be a good bet to use for an outsider.

Pre-race singles bets only. There is a maximum free bet of £10 available.

NetBet 145 45 px

  • First Race Every Day – Money Back If Your Horse Doesn’t Win but Does Place

For first race each day, if you back a horse to win and it doesn’t come in, but it does finish within place terms, then NetBet will refund your losing stake as a free bet.

There is a maximum of £10 that can be awarded, and importantly, you must opt-in to receive the offer.

William Hill 145 45 px

  • Win Up to £1M by Predicting the Finishing Order in a Race

Another offer from William Hill. This one is a competition and you can potentially win £1m.

Bet £10 outright, or £5 each way on the qualifying race to enter. You then have to pick the first six finishing horses and their order of them. Get it correct, and you can win a share of £1m. If no one gets it correct, then £50k is shared among those who correctly predict the top two.

It’s the last race of the day for the Golden Race competition on Day 4 – the 5.30 Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle.

  • All Televised Races -Back a Winner and Get a Free Bet Up to £20 on the Next Race

Unibet are rolling out their popular ’15 to go’ offer for Cheltenham and is available for all televised races.

Back a winner, and you’ll get a free bet equal to your stake for the next race. Back a winner with £20 and you’ll get a £20 free bet for the next race.

It’s similar to the Betfair, and bet365 offers listed below, but with two key differences. One difference is that you must place the bet within 15 minutes of the race starting. The second is that the qualifying minimum odds is just 2.00. It’s this latter difference which means you can effectively back favourites and be more likely to win a free bet additionally.

  • All Races – Money Back If You Finish 2nd or 3rd to the SP Favourite

Available from 5th March.  You’ll get money back if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd to the starting price (SP) favourite at any race during the festival. This will be paid as a free bet, up to £20.

The 2nd place refund applies when there are 5+ runners, and 3rd place refund applies when there are 8+ runners. If you place multiple bets on a race, it is the first bet that is eligible for the offer.

  • All Televised Races -Back a Winner and Get a Free Bet Up to £50 on the Next Race

Back a winner at odds of 3/1, and Betfair will be giving you a £50 free bet.  There is no limit on the number of free bets you can earn during the Festival.

Previously, this has been capped at £25 but it has been doubled for Cheltenham. You’ll receive your free within 2 hours of the bet settling, so you might not get it in time for the next race.


  • All Televised Races -Back a Winner and Get a Free Bet Up to £50 on the Next Race
  • For the latest new customer offer, see the bet365 bonus code page

This is similar to Betfair, but with slightly longer odds to payout. Back a winner at 4/1 or more and get a risk free bet on the next live ITV race (up to £50) at bet365. Offer applies to first single bet placed. Applies to Win and Each-Way Fixed Odds markets and Enhanced Place Terms markets only. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply. New and eligible customers only.

It is worth noting that the last race each day at Cheltenham is not being broadcasted on ITV.


  • All Races – Money Back If Your Horse Falls

Get money back as a free bet if your horse falls, the jockey is unseated or is brought down. A minimum bet of £5 applies, and there is a max payout of £25 available.

This is available for all races at Cheltenham and is probably more useful for the chases, rather than the hurdles.

Non-Runner No Bet:

All bookmakers are now NRNB across all races. We’ve included the date when they made this change, so if you placed an ante-post bet, you will know the terms of your bet.

  • Ladbrokes – All Races (Switched from four main races on 26th Feb)
  • Coral – All Races (Switched from four main races on 26th Feb)
  • Boylesports –  All Races (Switched from four main races on Fri 1st March)
  • Betfred –  All Races (Switched from four main races on Mon 4th March)
  • Totesport–  All Races (Switched from four main races on Mon 4th March)
  • Unibet  – Became NRNB on 1st March
  • bet365 – All Races

In Summary

Here is a summary of all of the Cheltenham offers that are available for Gold Cup Day. More details on them can be found in the section above.

Cheltenham Daily Roundup -Gold Cup Day 4

A lot of the offers available today are for the 13.30 race. You have three recommended options:

  • Take advantage of the Betway money back special for the 1.30. If you don’t win, you’ll get your losing bet back as a free bet which you can use for the next race.
  • Paddy Power are offering money back on all losers if Sir Erec wins.
  • An alternative to the money back specials is Coral, who will double your winnings up to £25.

If you don’t start the day with a win, you’ll have 2 x £10 free bets to use later on in the day. Paddy Power and Betway both aim to refund the losing bets within 2 hours. So far, for us, it has taken about an around hour.

For the 2.10 you probably won’t have had your free bets awarded yet, so pick either Unibet, bet365 or Betfair. All of these will give you a free bet when you back a winner.

For the 2.50 and 3.30, if you didn’t win in the opening race, you likely have a £10 free bet for each of these races. The 4.10 and 4.50 races, you’re back with bet365/ Unibet.

The last race, you’ve got two options:

  • For this one, we’d recommend Betway again. It’s the same offer as before; money back as a free bet if your horse doesn’t win.
  • Also worth considering is the William Hill Golden Race competition. Bet £10 and you have the chance to win £1m by predicting the first six horses to finish.
