Cheltenham Festival non-runner no bet with Paddy Power

With less than ten weeks to go until the Cheltenham Festival gets underway leading bookmaker Paddy Power has stolen a march on rivals by introducing their latest Cheltenham Festival non-runner no bet concession on all 28 races.

The ‘greatest show on turf’ is now less than ten weeks away and while the continued effects of Covid-19 continue to muddy the waters surrounding the Cheltenham Festival not only with regards to the possibility of crowds being allowed to attend, but also the potential possibility of a ban on runners from Ireland and the rest of Europe punters nevertheless remain eager to see the top stars of the National Hunt game go head to head over arguably the best four days of racing in the sporting calendar.

All being well we’ll see the likes of Altior in action where he could bid to wrestle back his Champion Chase Crown; Epatante who will seek to successfully defend her Champion Hurdle title; Envoi Allen who would put an unbeaten record on the line in whichever race the turns out in and Al Boum Photo who would be bidding to come the latest triple-winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup having won the last two renewals just a few of the big names who might turn out at the Festival.

The Irish contingent as always will bring a powerful team across the Irish Sea if restrictions allow and while for punters the ante-post market on the Cheltenham Festival remains unclear leading bookmaker Paddy Power has gone some way towards taking the risk out of ante-post betting at the Festival by introducing ‘non-runner no bet’ on every race throughout the four days of the top-class fixture.

Cheltenham Festival non-runner no bet. Al Boum Photo will bid for a third straight Gold Cup victory.

What is ‘non-runner no bet’?


Put simply, ‘non-runner bet’ offers punters a safeguard on their wager should their fancied runner either fail to make the Cheltenham Festival or run in an alternative race. In these instances punters’ stakes are refunded in full.

As an example, in the curtain raising Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on Festival Tuesday, current ante-post favourite Appreciate It holds entries in the race but also the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle on Wednesday and Friday’s Albert Bartlett Hurdle.

Leading Irish trainer Willie Mullins trains the horse and it remains to be seen which of the three races the Jeremy gelding might be targeted at; plus, given he’d be travelling from Ireland the current Covid-19 restrictions could scupper any appearance altogether! That isn’t something we want to consider though for any race at the Cheltenham Festival!

Non-runner no bet would return punters’ stakes if the worst were to happen and Irish runners were banned from travelling; but if they were able to run with a wager placed on Appreciate It winning the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle punters would be paid out as normal if he were to win the first race of the Festival or get their money back in the event Willie Mullins elected to run him in an alternative race such as the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle.
