Betfair have become to first bookmaker to match Bet365 in offering their Cheltenham Festival non-runner money back promotion for every single race across the four-day spectacular next month.

Many bookmakers have already introduced their own non-runner refund offers for the coming meeting which takes place over the four days of 10-13 March 2015, Betfair doing so as early as New Year's Day.

That had only applied to the four championship races which is the still the case for several opposing bookmakers such as Winner, BetfredBetVictorCoral and Paddy Power. All offer refunds on the featured 3.20 race each day, while Boylesports include a further eight races to their own offer.

Betfair have now joined Bet365 in improving their non-runner refund offer to apply to all 27 races of the Cheltenham Festival across the four days, where you will receive a refund on your ante-post bets until the action gets underway should your horse fail to participate.

The popular peer-to-peer betting exchange pioneers also offer Best Odds Guaranteed on bets for horse racing punters and continuously provide competitive and up-to-date odds from meetings around the world. There is also the opportunity to pick up a bonus when landing your forecast and tricast bets thanks to the sportsbook operators.

The bookmaker also gives new customers a pair of enhanced odds offers relating to Cheltenham to take up if you are registering an account before 6 March. These include a 5/1 price boost for Faugheen to win the Champion Hurdle or a 3/1 boost for Ruby Walsh to be the Festival's Top Jockey for a ninth time, plus money back if you lose which is applied to both. These offers will however cancel out the standard welcome offer if taken.

Betfair customers can also potentially win a pair of VIP tickets in their Road To Cheltenham virtual game, open to new and existing customers which will be accessible once to everybody each day until 1 March 2015. Win the virtual race and you will be entered into the prize draw that day, where one winner shall be picked out at random to win the VIP tickets.

If you are new to Betfair, you can register today and boost your new account with up to £30 in free bets.
