Thought it was worth having a thread up and running for tips and offers. I'm useless on the tips so happy to post up the offers (not new account offers as you can get those for any event).

I think if you're going to bet on the festival anyway then you are crazy not to avail yourself of the below, I would think anyone who bets 10 a race at Cheltenham should do the below

VCBet - up to 50 refunded on the Champion Hurdle if you don't turn a profit. I've put it all on Hurricane Fly as this ties in with the Paddy Power bet. Refunds must be used by 5pm on the 15th March, only profits are returned to your accounts as cash, free bets must be placed on horse racing) Full terms here
http://www.betvictor.com/sports/en/cheltenham-festival-supreme-novices?Banner_HP_HR_SupremeOffer_0703

Ladbrokes - up to 25 refunded if you back Simonsig and it doesn't win (currently 1.57, open till 5pm on 11th March, free bet valid for 7 days, says nothing about playing it through a certain amount of times)
Full terms here
http://www.ladbrokes.com/simonsig/

Betfred - 10 free bet for any 10 antepost bet (must be evens or greater, be used within 30 days and the antepost bet be placed by 10th March, says nothing about playing it through a certain amount of times)
Full terms can be found here
http://www.betfred.com/promotions/sports

Paddy Power - up to 100 refunded if Hurricane Fly wins the Champion Hurdle. I think the way to do this is back all horses, money back if one of the favourites wins, and a decent profit if an outsider comes in. Going on current prices
Probably the best offer as refunds are as cash, though as below if you want guaranteed profit then it's not big money
http://specials.paddypower.com/cond.php?id=13141

Possible staking plan, prices as of first thing 8th March

Hurricane fly - Money back if it wins but 87.50 profit from VC Bet
Zarkandar - 20 at 4/1 = Money back if it wins
Rock on Ruby - 20 at 4/1 = Money back if it wins
Grandouet - 15 at 6/1 = 5 profit if it wins
Binocular - 12 at 10/1 = 20 profit if it wins
Cinders & Ashes - 12 at 10/1 = 20 profit if it wins
Countrywide Flame - 8 at 14/1 = 12 profit if it wins
Cotton Mill - 6 at 20/1 = 26 profit if it wins
Khyber Kim - 4 at 40/1 = 64 profit if it wins
Balder Success - 3 at 50/1 = 54 profit if it wins

Corals - Currently offering Sprinter Sacre at Evens (instead of 1/4) for up to 20, don't see this one lasting too long though

None are for massive money but if you're going to bet money at Cheltenham anyway then all are risk free (except for Sprinter Sacre which some might say is risk free)

Please post up any other Cheltenham Special offers you see and your best bets which I can blow my refunded bet money on :D

That Sprinter Sacre offer is mental.

Looks like Grandouet will be pulled though.

Which bookies offer triple odds on one winner in a lucky 15, just Betfred? Bet365 also? Any bookies not BOG any more?

Think that how I'll go this festival for the most part.

In the WH shop the other day they said they did but as I didn't get any winners, I didn't test it.

Paddy Power do in their Irish shops - not sure about on-line.

JenningsBet do in the shops as well.

Is there anywhere good in London to watch the Gold Cup on Friday?

I’ve got the day off so fancied popping in to town and having a few beers.

Grandouet drifting and Cotton Mill withdrawing means you can now stake to guarantee at least 20 profit (as long as you've backed Hurricane Fly with VC Bet)

Staking below adjusted


Hurricane fly - Money back if it wins but 100 profit from VC Bet
Zarkandar - 30 at 7/2 = 35 profit if it wins
Rock on Ruby - 22 at 9/2 = 21 profit if it wins
Grandouet - 14 at 8/1 = 26 profit if it wins
Binocular - 12 at 9/1 = 20 profit if it wins
Cinders & Ashes - 8 at 14/1 = 20 profit if it wins
Countrywide Flame - 8 at 14/1 = 20 profit if it wins
Khyber Kim - 3 at 40/1 = 23 profit if it wins
Balder Success - 3 at 80/1 = 143 profit if it wins

Is it online? If so you just withdraw it to your chosen card.

Chatterbox in the Neptune or Lord Windermere in the RSA tomorrow look like good e/w bets :)

In the office in Cheltenham and about to head out for a sandwich.
Off to Plymouth this afternoon, thereby avoiding the crowds.

Had Champagne Fever which paid for the first day.

Nothing else though, they all had a chance coming into the last straight though which i'm pleased about!

Now sat at my Uncle's waiting for tomorrow

Was there yesterday, had 10 on Champagne Fever in the first then nothing until a speculative 10 each way on Rajdhani Express at 22-1 netted me 284in the last. Tried to keep it quiet, but seen collecting and 'persuaded' to buy numerous drinks...

I made 1200 pounds, mainly due to betfairs refund for second place on day 2 and then 1-2 races on later days.

Racebets.com had 2nd place refund offer if you get 2nd to the favourite, had 2 of those as well.

1 bet 365 4/1 winner as well.
