Cheltenham Festival 2017 – enhanced odds bets

By | March 8, 2017

Enhanced odds bets

Bet ante-post and get some extra betting cash for the Festival!

The run-up to Cheltenham is a great time to get some ante-post bets on. The bets listed below are one-off, enhanced odds bets. They’re only offered for a limited time, and the maximum stakes can be fairly small,  but they can still be a lucrative way to kick-start your Cheltenham bankroll.

For example, if you think Willie Mullins will have a winner on Day 1 (and he has some great chances!) you can earn yourself a quick £40 to use over the rest of the week by taking up the offer from Racebets.


Day 1 – Tuesday

40/1 Willie Mullins to train a winner on Day 1

Racebets are offering 40/1 on Mullins to have ANY winner on Tuesday 14th. Given that he has Melon (9-2 jt-fav in the Supreme Novice Hurdle), Vroum Vroum Mag (5-2, Mares’ Hurdle) and Limini running that day, it’s certainly a great bet!

16/1 Might Bite to win the RSA Chase

6/1 Douvan to win the Champion Chase

betfair are offering 6/1 on Douvan to win the Champion Chase on Wednesday. It’s currently on offer at 2/7, so pretty well as firm a favourite as you’ll find all week. 6/1 is a 20x price boost, but is 6/1 enough to tempt you? Or would you see it as a relatively safe way to get £60?

25/1 Cue Card and Douvan to win

If you fancy Douvan but either aren’t sure about Altior OR want a bigger return, betfair are offering 25/1 to pair Douvan (Queen Mother Champion Chase, Wednesday) with Cue Card (Gold Cup, Friday) to win. The odds on a Double would be around 7/6, so 25 to 1 is another big price boost, if a slightly more risky bet.
