Bet Victor goes Non Runner Free Bet for antepost insurance on 2013 Cheltenham FestivalDecember 17th, 2012 / lee
Horse racing punters have already been turning one eye towards the running of the 2013 Cheltenham Festival as the jump season has opened again. The countdown towards the world’s greatest race meeting is firmly on, and the ante post markets for the 2013 Cheltenham Festival, with the highlight being the Cheltenham Gold Cup are already attracting a lot of business. The betting is shaping up already as punters look for early values on the feature races.
Following on from some winning appearances from Hurricane Fly, Sprinter Sacre and Big Buck’s, the popular markets for the Champion Hurdle, the Champion Chase and the World Hurdle at the 2013 Cheltenham Festival have already been sparked into life with the 2013 favourites taking heavy early backing.
As the for 2013 Cheltenham Gold Cup itself, the early ante post market is looking fairly open right now. There of course will not be Kauto Star or Denman, staples of recent Gold Cups and it is Bobs Worth who is heading the field for the next renewal of the famous races. There will be challenges from former winner Long Run and Sir Des Champs and Flemenstar are expected to be in prime shape for the big race.
As early coverage for your Cheltenham Festival 2013 betting online betting site Bet Victor are offering Non Runner Free Bet insurance. The popular betting site is offering losing stake refunds up to a maximum of £50 per horse and £100 per race on the Cheltenham Festival ante post markets if your horse turns out to be a non-runner in the race.
BetVictor spokesperson Charlie McCann explained: “We are trying to give antepost punters a bit of insurance for next year’s Cheltenham Festival; thus if you place a £50 win bet on a selection for the Gold Cup and he fails to make the line up you will get a £50 free bet for the Friday of the Festival in your account on the morning of the race.
If you place 2 x £50 win bets on the same race and they are both non runners you will have £100 worth of free bets for the day of the race. This concession is to instil some confidence in the ante post market for punters. The offer has been backdated for all ante post bets on the 2013 Cheltenham Festival and we will be advising customers who have already had a bet on the Festival of their insurance.”
