Here’s how you can make the most of 888Sport’s Cheltenham Festival free bet offer using our Cheltenham day 3 tips. If all of our selections win, you’d make £300 from a measly £20 deposit!

888Sport Cheltenham Offer Bet 1 – First £20 (£10 each-way) Bet

I was really taken with the style in which MISTER FISHER swept past Good Boy Bobby to win the Ryman’s here in November. It reminded me of Defi Du Seuil’s winning performance in this race 12 months ago. Mister Fisher then proved he had more than enough speed and class to win over two miles at Doncaster, battling bravely to beat Al Dancer and Lisp to the Grade Two Lightning Chase.

Although better ground would be preferable, Mister Fisher proved he could still turn on the afterburners on soft going here earlier in the season. He looks an excellent each-way Cheltenham Festival tip.

I know you only have to place a £10 bet to activate this offer, but the win part of an each-way bet would have to equate £10, so you’ll need to deposit £20 and back Mister Fisher £10 each-way!

Cheltenham Festival Free Bet 2 – First £5 Free Bet

Gordon Elliott boasts an excellent recent record in the Pertemps Final, and last year’s winner, Sire Du Berlais cannot be discounted, even under the burden of top-weight. That being said, I cannot leave THE STORYTELLER out of my Cheltenham Festival day three tips, as there’s clearly been a plot to get this former Grade One-winning chaser into this handicap.

Having won the Brown Advisory Plate here as a novice, The Storyteller then struggled during his second season over fences. On his return to hurdling, Elliott’s nine-year-old beat two future winners at Clonmel. A tactful Davy Russell ride then helped The Storyteller book his spot in this final with a sneaky sixth in the qualifier at Leopardstown. A horse of The Storyteller’s class should have no trouble contending with 11-9 on his back.

888Sport Cheltenham Offer Bet 3 – Second £5 Free Bet

The most likely winner of the race looks to be A PLUS TARD, so I’ll tentatively include him in my Cheltenham Festival day three tips. I think Henry De Bromhead’s chaser brings the best seasonal form to the table, having beaten Chacun Pour Soi over Christmas, and is the only runner who seems to be open to a significant amount of improvement.

12-months ago, A Plus Tard looked a Grade One-quality horse running in a handicap when winning the Northern Trust. De Bromhead’s charge has gone on to prove that this term. I’m confident two-and-a-half miles on decent enough ground will prove to be his best trip.

Cheltenham Festival Free Bet 4 – Third £5 Free Bet

I think Paisley Park is going to retain his title. However, you can’t be placing a £5 free bet on a 4/6 shot. The obvious horse to take Paisley Park on with is SUMMERVILLE BOY, who was only narrowly beaten by the Stayers’ Hurdle favourite on his first start over the trip in the Cleeve. Tom George’s charge has plenty of class, having previously won the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. He could give the defending Champion a real scare.

888Sport Cheltenham Offer Bet 5 – Fourth £5 Free Bet

I’ve gone for both Clondaw Castle and MISTER WHITAKER in my in-depth Cheltenham day 3 tips. For the purpose of this bet, I’m going to go with the latter in the Brown Advisory Plate.

All of Mister Whitaker’s last three victories have come over course-and-distance. Having won on Trials Day, Channon’s charge won the Northern Trust in 2018, and rounded off a poor campaign last season with another victory at Cheltenham’s April meeting. Mister Whitaker has only been out twice this term, finishing an eye-catching fifth here on New Year’s Day, before pulling up in the Cotswold Chase. As he clearly doesn’t produce his best over three miles, the Brown Advisory Plate looks ideal and Mister Whitaker has the class to carry 11-8 to victory.

Cheltenham Festival Free Bet 6 – Fifth £5 Free Bet

Ireland’s Champion Trainer has won all four renewals of the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle. Even when his chances seemed bleak 12-months ago, 50/1 and 66/1 shots came through to hand Mullins a shock 1-2 in this Grade Two. Willie has fired several arrows at the target this year, and it’s COLREEVY who features in my Cheltenham Festival tips.

A Grade One winner of a bumper at Punchestown last season, Colreevy has won one of her three outings over hurdles. Mullins’ charge was really pushing Minella Melody last time out at Fairyhouse too, and might have finished even closer to the favorite had it not been for a slow jump at the last. Colreevy is a strong stayer and is proven on all kinds of ground. She looks a solid each-way Cheltenham Festival tip.

888Sport Cheltenham Offer Bet 7 – Sixth and Final £5 Free Bet

Performance this season has helped LE BREUIL drop below the 145-ceiling for the Kim Muir Handicap Chase and he’ll be the last of my Cheltenham Festival day three tips.

Under a fantastic ride by top amateur Jamie Codd, Ben Pauling’s stayer saw off Discorama to win the National Hunt Chase 12 months ago. Le Brueil has been well beaten in both the Becher and the Classic Chase this term. However, I don’t think his jockey was that keen to get fully involved in either of those races.

“The Coddfather” was in the saddle again as he guided Le Breuil over the National fences for the first time in December. If Ben Pauling can secure Codd’s services again at the Festival, then Le Breuil’s hopes would improve massively. At 10/1, he looks a very good each-way Cheltenham Festival tip.
