Non-Runner No Bet & Best Odds Guaranteed on every Cheltenham Festival race

The build-up to the Cheltenham Festival is well and truly underway and we are offering Non-Runner No Bet as well as Best Odds Guaranteed on every race at this year's Cotswolds spectacle.

The months leading up to the Festival are always interesting, with so many twists and turns throughout the season changing the direction for Festival contenders.

However, with Non-Runner No Bet and Best Odds Guaranteed, those who want to get their bets on early can do so without the risk of those potential twists and turns impacting bet slips.

Below, we have detailed five of the week's biggest races that fans might be wanting to get stuck in to early.

View Best Odds Guaranteed Terms and Conditions here. 

Champion Hurdle

The feature race of day one at The Festival is the Champion Hurdle and it’s no surprise that Nicky Henderson’s stable star Constitution Hill heads the betting at 1/4

Also in the picture for Champion Hurdle glory are Willie Mullins’ State Man at 7/2 and Vauban at 8/1.

It remains up for debate whether Henry de Bromhead will decide to take on Constitution Hill with last year’s victor Honeysuckle or instead target the Mares’ Hurdle. For those in the Champion Hurdle camp, you can get Non-Runner No Bet and Best Odds Guaranteed at 11/2.

Champion Chase

Day two of The Festival brings the Champion Chase and it’s Ireland versus Great Britain with a likely clash between last year’s winner Energumene for Willie Mullins and Alan King’s Edwardstone both sitting at 7/4 after the rearranged Clarence House Chase left racing fans with more questions than answers. 

Editeur Du Gite was the impressive winner that day, making all to see off both of the Champion Chase market leaders and he is now available at 9/2 to beat the pair again.

Ryanair Chase

One of the biggest questions ahead of The Festival is which race Willie Mullins will target with Galopin Des Champs, with some critics posing question marks over his staying power for the Gold Cup. If these are valid concerns, Mullins may instead opt for the Ryanair Chase, where he can be backed at 1/1 with Non-Runner No Bet and Best Odds Guaranteed. 

A more certain contender for the race is Allaho 5/4, who last year become the first horse to emulate the success of Albertas Run and claim successive victories in the race. 

Willie Mullins’ Blue Lord can be backed at 7/2 to spoil the Allaho party, while Shishkin is 7/1 to get back to winning ways after an unsuccessful last two starts.

Stayers' Hurdle 

Another of day three’s highlights is the Stayers’ Hurdle, a race that has had it's fair share of questions surrounding it this season. Teahupoo has found himself storming to the top of the market at 2/1 after winning the John Mulhern Galmoy Hurdle at a canter. 

Flooring Porter 5/1, bidding to make it three wins from three in this race, looks to have it all to do after being beaten twice by Home By The Lee, who is available now at 7/2.

Stayers’ Hurdle stalwart Paisley Park is available at 14/1 for Emma Lavelle. 

Cheltenham Gold Cup

The week reaches a crescendo with Friday’s Gold Cup, with Galopin Des Champs 5/4 to put previous Cheltenham nightmares to bed and achieve ultimate Festival glory. 

Last year's shock Grand National Winner Noble Yeats has staked his claim as a top chaser this year, proving his Aintree success was no fluke, and finds himself as joint second favourite with last year's winner A Plus Tard - available at 6/1.

Another notable runner is Paul Nicholls' Bravemansgame 7/1. The King George VI Chase winner is one of the biggest talents in racing and, if he can handle the undulating hills of Cheltenham, he provides his trainer with an excellent chance at a fifth Gold Cup.

(Odds correct at time of publishing. Best Odds Guaranteed applies to the Non-Runner No Bet markets in all of this year's Cheltenham Festival Races).
