2020 Cheltenham Festival extra places – Betfred go FIVE places in 9 handicaps

Jockey Richie McLernon on Holywell during the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase.

Betfred announced this week that they were now offering five places in 9 races at the upcoming Cheltenham Festival on Tuesday 10th March.


On New Years’ Day, Betfred became the first bookmaker to attach Non-Runner No Bet stipulations to their markets for the Championship races at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival. NRNB provides ante-post punters with a wonderful safety net. If the horse you’ve backed doesn’t make it to the Festival or runs in a different race, you’ll get your money back in cash!

As if that wasn’t enough reason to do your Cheltenham betting with Betfred, the popular bookmaker launched another Festival special this week. As of today, Betfred will be offering FIVE PLACES at 1/5 of the odds on no fewer nine handicaps at this year’s Cheltenham Festival. The Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle is the only handicap not included in this promotion.
