Match Catcher is a sophisticated matched betting tool designed to help users maximise profits from horse racing.

It compares horse racing odds quickly and finds matches on races that are eligible for refund offers.

What is Match Catcher?

For matched bettors hoping to make a serious profit during the Cheltenham Festival, Match Catcher is an essential tool.

It saves time and helps keep qualifying losses as low as possible.

Match Catcher vastly reduces the effort needed to take advantage of horse racing refund offers. Instead of searching through odds manually, up-to-date prices are available in one place and the lay stake is included, so a separate matched betting calculator is not needed.

Horse racing refund offers

Match Catcher allows members to take full advantage of horse racing refund offers.

These reload offers are viewed as one of key ways of making a long-term profit from matched betting.

An example would be a bookmaker offering a £25 free bet if your horse finishes second. To to take advantage of this, it is possible to back and lay horses in an attempt to hit the promotion.

Over time, this can be a very profitable way of matched betting.

The key aspect is keeping the qualifying loss to a minimum and to remember it is a longer-term strategy. Over time, it will pay off.

It's important to keep qualifying losses low and do as many offers as possible.

There are refund offers almost every day but more at weekends and during high-profile events such as Cheltenham.

Match Catcher at Cheltenham

Match catcher really comes into its own during busy horse racing periods.

It's great at weekends, when there are a lot of meetings and bookmaker offers and even better during Cheltenham week.

The Cheltenham Festival features seven races each day from Tuesday March 14 to Friday March 17 - Gold Cup Day.

Millions of pounds are bet over the course of the festival and bookies fight tooth and nail for a slice of the action. This means a vast array of betting offers, including refunds.

And this is where Match Catcher is so useful. It features real-time odds on all the qualifying markets and can be filtered by bookie and exchange to suit your preferences.

Users can also set up alerts to be notified when a match is found that fits a given criteria.

Platinum Plus membership includes Acca Catcher, a brilliant tool that helps members build profitable football accumulators, but note this is not included during the free trial.
