Cheltenham Festival 2018 Matched Betting Tips & Advice 

1Practice Reloads

Make sure that you have familiarised yourself with and practiced the popular horse racing offers before Cheltenham. These include 2nd to SP Fav, 2nd place refund, 4/1 winner, fallers insurance. Try these on a Saturday when ITV is showing racing. Cheltenham essentially offers 4 days straight of Saturday racing with a lot more offers - Mark

2Withdrawals

Make sure you’ve done all your withdrawals from weekend, dont be waiting on withdrawals come Tuesday morning. Make sure your money’s where you want it to be. Use paypal skrill if allowed for faster withdrawals, especially when that 100 quid free bet on a 40/1 shot wins. Study form night before. Write down all reloads, boosts etc your going for. If you´ve not a massive exchange make sure your combining liability, do not ignore extra place races. Try and enjoy it, great fun and great racing - Roswell

3Combined Liability

Get a handle on combined liability. This will be your friend as there will be multiple offers for many races and this will allow you to back multiple horses without maxing out your exchange. Perfect for smaller exchanges. Note this won´t work if you back the same horse for multiple offers - David

4Get Organised

Make sure you have your money available - withdraw everything from every bookie and leave a decent amount, but not everything in the exchange. You want to be able to be flexible and put your money where its needed (bookie / exchange)

Get organised. Try to get some bets on the night before if the odds are decent. Know which offers are available on which races and know what offers you want to go for on each race. The time between races is manic whilst you try to get bets on and you want to know what you should be doing. Andy

Purchase good sized whiteboard & night before each race day write out the races and the offers you are eligible to participate on/intend to hit. Alternatively make a paper plan. - James

5Do Easy Offers First

Do easy low stake reloads the night (2nd place, 2ndSP, etc)before if possible or early morning, all races are flush with liquidity so much easier at Cheltenham... Remember to fill in your whiteboard/paper plan so you know what’s left of your masterplan to execute. - James

6Odds Boosts

Look out for the boosts and make a note of what times bookies are planning to run boosts. Fred always come up with some crackers and can usually get a good chunk on them till they restrict eventually. - James

6Enjoy It

Don’t let it stress you out, we all like to make money but taking the week off work and then running yourself into the ground all week isn´t worth it IMO, try and also enjoy the racing. (Learnt this the hard way tbh, looking to enjoy it more this year). - James

7Lock In Profit

Use the lock in´s where you ever possible. Be prepared to take slightly less than normal especially if multi accounting as slightly less of more accounts will add up. Follow daily horse racing thread. Loads of tips and advice will crop up there. - Dean

8Practice

Have money in a ´back-up´ exchange. Outages have been known at busy times. Don´t try new offers for the first time at Chelt. I.e. Don’t suddenly try to hit the extra places if you´ve not done them before. Practice with small stakes on a busy Saturday to get the hang of them. - Matt

9Always Take Part

Is it worth taking part with a really small bank like £500ish???

Even by just doing the guaranteed profit offers on the first race each day last year., I made about £250 over the 4 days - Neil
