Buveur D’Air will bid to win the Champion Hurdle for the third year running at the Cheltenham Festival on Tuesday. He is the 2/1 joint favourite along with Apple’s Jade to pull it off, but Betway is offering boosted odds of 66/1 on him clinching victory. You have to deposit £10 or €10 in a new account in order to qualify for the offer, and your stake is capped at £1 or €1. If successful you would then have £66 or €66 in free bets to play around with. Betway will also give you 33/1 on stablemate Altior to win the Champion Chase on Wednesday. Altior is on a long winning streak and won this race last year, so that looks like an even safer option.

Paddy Power is offering boosted odds on Benie Des Dieux to win the Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham. She won this Grade 1 race last year and she is on a five-race winning streak. Star jockey Ruby Walsh has already picked her out as the horse he is most looking forward to riding at the festival, and trainer Willie Mullins is also full of praise for her. She is the 10/11 favourite to win the race again, but Paddy Power will give you odds of 33/1. The same principles apply: deposit £10 or €10 in a new account in order to qualify, your stake is capped at £1 or €1 and if successful you would then have £33 or €33 in free bets to play around with.

Bet Victor has a compelling offer for the entire Cheltenham Festival. If you open an account and place a £5 bet on a horse at even money (2.0) or greater, it will give you a free £1 bet on every single race at the festival. There are 28 in total – seven per day over four days – and this is a good way to have an interest in each contest without risking much of your own cash. Each day your account will be credited with seven free £1 bets.x

Mr Green is offering odds of 50/1 on defending champion Native River winning the Gold Cup once again. He prevailed in a thrilling duel with Might Bite last year, and he has since impressed by placing in the Betfair Chase and the King George VI Chase. Many punters are expecting him to go even better at Cheltenham once more, and he is becoming the favourite with many bookmakers ahead of Presenting Percy and Clan Des Obeaux. You will find odds of around 4/1 on him, so 50/1 is a huge price boost and winnings will be paid in cash, rather than free bets. You must deposit £10 into a new account to qualify and your stake is capped at £1.

Elsewhere, Sport Nation is offering 66/1 on heavy favourites Al Dancer and Benie Des Dieux both to win, or 50/1 on Presenting Percy to win the Gold Cup. Genting Bet will give you a free £10 bet if your first settled bet at the Cheltenham Festival loses. Sky Bet will give you back your money in cash if the horse you back up to £20 fails to win the Supreme Hurdle. It has an identical offer on the Ballymore Hurdle, the JLT and the Triumph Hurdle. Smarkets is giving away a £5 risk free bet on every 3.30pm Cheltenham race, and that is always the biggest contest of the day. Coral will double your winnings up to £25 in cash if your horse wins the 1.30pm race each day.
