The Cheltenham Festival 2020 gets underway on Tuesday and you don’t want to miss this Bethard Money Back Special! Simply place a bet on the 13:30 each day and if our horse finishes 2nd or 3rd, Bethard will refund our stake as a bonus, up to £20.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £70.00+ and here’s how…
- Offer is valid from 15:00 on Monday 9th March 2020 to 13:30 on Friday 13th March 2020.
- Only our first bet on each race qualifies for the promotion.
- Qualifying bets can be win singles or each way singles.
- If our horse finishes 2nd or 3rd, our stake will be refunded as a bonus, up to a maximum of £20.00.
- Bonuses have a 1x wagering requirement.
This offer is available on the 13:30 each day as follows…

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.
It’s entirely up to you which horses you place your qualifying bets on.
At the time of writing, the lay odds aren’t quite tight enough, so I’ll use fictional lay odds for Asterion Forlonge (5/2) in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle (Tuesday) and I’ll update the table at the bottom of the post with some actual selections after each race.
At the time of writing, laying our bet at Betfair is likely to give us the smallest qualifying loss.

We can work out our lay stake using my matched betting calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £19.02…
Place £20.00 on Asterion Forlonge @ 3.50 = Potential profit of £50.00
Lay £19.02 on Asterion Forlonge @ 3.70 = Potential liability of £51.35
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Asterion Forlonge wins||+£50.00||-£51.35||£1.35 loss|
|Asterion Forlonge finishes 2nd or 3rd||-£20.00||+£18.63||+£19.00||£17.63 profit|
|Asterion Forlonge finishes outside top 3||-£20.00||+£18.63||£1.37 loss|
So, we would make a nice profit of £17.63 if Asterion Forlonge finishes 2nd or 3rd and we would stand to lose a maximum of £1.37 on any other outcome. Risking £1.37 to make a profit of £17.63 gives us effective odds of 13.87, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.
With 4 eligible races across the 4 days, this gives us an overall potential profit of £70.00+ on this Bethard offer!
If eligible, bonuses will be credited by 15:00 on the day of the race and must be wagered once at odds of 1.50 (1/2) or greater within 7 days.
If you’re unsure how to extract £19.00 cash (95%) from a £20.00 bonus, check out my Bonus Rollover Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.
I’ll update the following table with some actual selections after each race…
|Race||Selection||Back Odds||Lay Odds||Profit/Loss|
|13:30 Wednesday||Envoi Allen||1.667||1.70||-£0.55|
