The dust has settled on another successful Cheltenham Festival!

There were some concerns at the start of the festival that this year might not have been as good as the previous years in terms of offers. However, Bet365 saved the day with a great 'bet £50 get £50' offer (it was invite only, but they sent a lot of invites).

There were also some great each way / extra place offers available. These types of offers are often considered to be ‘advanced’, so if you’re unfamiliar with them be sure to check out our training video here and our Each Way Catcher tutorial here.

How Much Did Our Members Earn?

Here is a selection of screenshots from the forum outlining how much our members won, what they thought about the festival itself and what they’re going to buy with their profits.

These are a few things that our members decided to buy with their winnings:

Tips For Next Year

Top tip for next year: if you want to earn a good profit, learn about each way and extra place offers. There were definitely more of these types of offers this year, and if the trend continues there will be more next year.

If you’re unfamiliar with each way or extra place offers, get some practice on offers on normal weekend racing (not during a big event like Cheltenham). You can view our training video here and our Each Way Catcher tutorial here.

Cheltenham Competition

Congrats to all our competition winners. Prizes are on their way. Special shout out to the winners who decided to give their winnings to charity this year. We helped some great charities, including:

  • Doctors Without Borders. A non-profit international medical humanitarian organisation that gives emergency aid to people in need (particularly those in war-torn areas).
  • Brooks Farm Animal Sanctuary. An animal sanctuary based in Wellingborough that relies fully on donations from the public.

Thanks to everyone that took part in the competition.

Next up, Aintree and the Grand National. Should be good!
