The 2019 Cheltenham Festival is set to take place in a couple weeks at Cheltenham Racecourse in the UK. The Festival is a huge betting event in the United Kingdom and this year there are 28 races scheduled to take place, which means a lot of great betting opportunities for horse racing punters.
I know there are a lot of dedicated horse racing fans here in Canada who follow and bet on the Cheltenham Festival races each year so I wanted to add this article to provide a simple 3 step guide to betting on The Festival at a Canadian facing betting site.

Bet365 Cheltenham Antepost Offers
The 2019 Cheltenham Festival begins on Tuesday 12th March and we are now Non-Runner No Bet and Best Odds Guaranteed on every race from the highlight of the National Hunt racing calendar.
With Non-Runner No Bet any bets placed on the Win and Each Way market will be refunded if your selection does not run. In multiple bets if a selection does not run, that part of the bet will be deemed a non-runner.
With Best Odds Guaranteed you can take the price on your selection and if the SP is bigger at the time of the race you will be paid out at the bigger odds.
This offer includes Board Prices, bet365 Early Prices, singles and multiples as well as Showcast bets on all racing where a fixed price is offered. Offer applies to bets placed on Win and Each Way Fixed Odds markets and Enhanced Place Terms markets only. All other markets, including adjusted place terms (Each Way Extra), Ante-Post bets (unless otherwise stated) and Tote/Pari-Mutuel (bets and dividends), are excluded from this offer. All Australasian Racing is excluded. Best Odds Guaranteed is only available to new and eligible customers.

Step 3. Place Your Cheltenham Festival Bets
It’s now time to place your bets!
You can find the Cheltenham Festival odds for every race by selecting ‘Horse Racing’ from the sports menu on the Bet365 website and scrolling down to the ‘Antepost’ section.
Select the race you want to bet on, select the horse and enter your risk amount on the ‘Bet Slip’ in the right sidebar. When you are happy with the bet click ‘Place Bet’ to lock in your wager.
The below banner will show the odds for some of the Cheltenham Festival races at Bet365, but you should visit Bet365.com and select ‘Horse Racing’ to see the current odds for all of the races.
