Punters can bet with added security ahead of the Cheltenham Festival following news that Sky Bet is offering ‘non-runner, no bet’ on all 28 races at the Cheltenham Festival.

The money back concession applies to every ante-post Cheltenham bet with the online firm, including the four championship races, the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup, Unibet Champion Hurdle, Sun Bets Stayers’ Hurdle and Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase.

The four-day jump racing extravaganza commences with the Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on Tuesday, March 13 and concludes on Friday March 16.

Sky Bet’s PR manager, Michael Shinners, said: “Into the New Year and, if they weren’t already, all eyes are now looking towards the Cheltenham Festival in March so seeing as we’re already betting on all races at the meeting, we’ve decided to add the non-runner, no bet offer too.

“The Cheltenham Festival continues to grow and grow as national hunt racing’s jewel in the crown and punters have never had it so good!”

The announcement follows news last week that Paddy Power, Betfair Sportsbook and bet365 are offering going non-runner, no bet on the four championship races and the Ryanair Chase.
