The Non Runner No Bet concession for the 2013 Cheltenham Festival is a big boost for punters looking to place ante-post bets as they are guaranteed their money back in the event of their selected horse's not running in their designated races .
BetVictor were the first bookmaker to offer the concession for ALL Festival races at 8pm on Friday 22nd February and Bet365 followed quickly offering NRNB on all 2013 Cheltenham Festival races from 11pm on the same day .
Pat Cooney spokesman for Bet365 told the Racing Post yesterday that "We've had alot of business,most of the money has been in multiple bets where people have gone for the soft ground performers together".
Betvictor spokesman Charlie McCann was also pleased with the initial levels of extra business generated and said ,"we were expecting interest in the handicaps but the offer has also attracted business in the championship races and from new and dormant customers as well as new ones."
