Bet365 Go Non Runner No Bet on All Cheltenham Festival Races

Bet365 are the first popular bookmaker to go non runner no bet on every race at the 2011 Cheltenham Festival so any bets placed with Bet365 between now and the end of the Cheltenham Festival on Friday March 18th can be placed in the knowledge that if your fancied horse doesn't run, you won't lose your stake.



One of the more appealing bets at the Cheltenham Festival 2011 now looks to be Somersby for the Ryanair Chase.

Somersby is currently one of the favourites for both the Champion Chase and the Ryanair Chase and you can now back the horse for either race without half as much risk as before. Somersby could go off favourite for the Ryanair Chase if connections decide to go for the tougher test of stamina rather than another rematch with Master Minded, a horse Somersby has finished behind on his last two runs. He tends to finish his races strongly, something seen at last year's Cheltenham Festival when he finished second to Sizing Europe in the Arkle Chase, and he has now placed in all three runs at Cheltenham so a bet on Somersby below with Bet365 looks a decent bet.

The current favourite for this race is Paul Nicholls trained Poquelin, who won his most recent race in December at Cheltenham and that took his course record up to four wins and two seconds from eight runs at Cheltenham over fences. With Paul Nicholls training the horse it is no surprise he is so well fancied for the race and his current odds look fair.

Paul Nicholls could also run recent AON Chase winner Noland in the Ryanair Chase, he is another who has multiple entries at the Festival, the Ryanair Chase is one of three races Noland could run in and he is another horse who appeals only with Bet365 since they are offering non runner no bet on the race.

The Ryanair Chase 2011 takes place on the 17th March at 14:40 GMT, it is one of the most competitive races of the Cheltenham Festival 2011.

Recommendation: Bet365 Go Non Runner No Bet With Immediate Effect On This Race
