Each Way Extra Places

Get the edge with extra paying places at Cheltenham this year!

With large numbers of horses running in races at Cheltenham getting paid on extra places is imperative.

That extra paying 5th, 6th or 7th place in race could be the difference between you landing the accumulator of a lifetime or not.

Each Way Extra gives you the option to increase or decrease the number of places in a race when you are betting Each Way on selected Horse Racing.

When you use Each Way Extra you can add places to your Each Way Horse Racing bets and take a reduced price or remove places and increase the odds on your selection.

Price Promise

Usually when you are backing a horse it is to win some money and given the option you would want to win the biggest amount possible for your stake.

bet365 will not be beaten on price on any horse for all UK and Irish races shown live on ITV Racing.

Best Odds Guaranteed

Often in horse racing the odds of horses drift. You could back a horse at 5/1 and it runs at 12/1 for example, this is great if you have best odds guaranteed however if you don’t it’s wrenching. Let’s say you placed £10 on a horse at 5/1 that drifted to 12/1 and won but your bookmaker doesn’t offer best odds guaranteed your returns would be £60.

However, if your bookmaker did offer best odds guaranteed your returns would be £130. Thats over double the returns!

Make sure you have best odds guaranteed for Cheltenham festival here.

Is Cheltenham festival still on?

Yes absolutely it is still on. All four days of the race meeting are going ahead as planned.

When does Cheltenham festival start?

The Festival is from Tuesday 14th to Friday 17th March 2023.

Cheltenham Day 1 Tips – Champions Day

Champion Hurdle:

The Champion Hurdle is the main showcase of day one at the Festival, Honeysuckle could bid to equal the record of three wins in the race if she chooses to line up here. After all she did land her second successive victory in the race last year. If we fail to see something special emerge then I’m would expect a short priced SP favourite here.

Defending the title in the Champions Hurdle that she would be looking for after taking a three and a half-length margin victory over rival Epatante in 2022.

The biggest danger comes from Nicky Henderson’s new star Constitutional Hill. He flew home in the Supreme Novices hurdle last year and is 5/5 over hurdles including winning to Group 1’s already this season.

Cheltenham Day 2 Tips – Ladies Day At Cheltenham

Queen mother Champion Chase:

Surprisingly, this race has not seen any age dominate in the last ten editions. Both 7 year olds, 8 year olds, 9 year olds have won with two 10 year old winners in that timeframe. 

There hasn’t been a Queen Mother Champion Chase winner greater than 16/1 in the last 20 races, and each of the previous 20 winners have been in the top six in the betting market at the off. 

Which is great when #ad bet365 will be paying extra places.

Another interesting face is that only been two female entrants in the previous 20 Queen Mother renewals, but one of those did win.

That was 2021’s history-making, Put The Kettle On.

Cheltenham Day 3 Tips –

Stayers’ Hurdle:

Gordon Elliot’s Teahupoo was the previous favourite for the Stayers’ Hurdle. But after Blazing Khal’s win, the progressive stayer was last seen cruising to victory in the Grade 2 Galmoy Hurdle and he looks the one to beat.

Defending champion Flooring Porter is in a race against time to be fit, however if he lines up he has to be respected, Gold Tweet turned heads winning the Cleeve Hurdle, beating Dashel Drasher and former winner Paisley Park.

Ryanair Chase:

Ryanair Chase odds, tips and winners.

The Ryanair Chase is a difficult race to call from a anti-post perspective.

Allaho was a emphatic winner of the Ryanair Chase for in 2022, he has now won the race back to back. He won by 14 lengths as the Willie Mullins-trained odds-on favourite outclassing the second-placed Janadil by 14 lengths, with Eldorado Allen finishing third.

Willie Mullins is becoming some what a specialist at the race winning also in 2020 with the impressive Min. The most difficult decision he will have to make her is selecting one of two top jockeys, the punters favourite Racheal Blackmore or the ever consistent Paul Townsend.

Cheltenham Day 4 Tips – Gold Cup Day
