I had been personally waiting for the first bookmaker to declare that they were going non runner no bet for Cheltenham. I wouldn't have an Ante Post betting wager for fear of my bet being a non runner and then losing all my stake money.
It just happens that my favourite horse racing bookies have declared it so, plus there's Best Odds Guaranteed as well. This gives punters an opportunity to study the form for Cheltenham and seek out a good betting chance with odds that suit.
It's a welcome boost and betting aid to the build up to one of the most exciting jumps festivals. The current offer does not yet apply to all Cheltenham Festival 2020 races. So this includes the Gold Cup race.
However it is only a matter of time as we approach the start date before the bookmakers will go fully on all races best odds guaranteed and non runner no bet. So be sure to check this page and the table at the top often and be ready to secure your ante-post bet.
