Claim an Enhanced Cheltenham Double with 888Sport


Douvan & Altior

March is here and with Cheltenham drawing ever closer, the promotions are starting to come in at a steadier pace. Elsewhere, we’ve seen individual enhanced odds offers on Douvan and Altior for their respective races but over at 888Sport, they have published a win double which promises a great potential price of 16/1.

Both horses are short favourites for their renewals so what exactly is on the table here?

The numbers

Altior goes off first on the first day of the Festival and heads the market for the Arkle Trophy at a best of 1/3 with the likes of Coral and Ladbrokes. That leaves a gap between the Nicky Henderson trained horse and second favourite Yorkhill who is on at a top price of 5/1 with SportingBet.

That’s a significant set of figures and for the Queen Mother Champion Chase on Wednesday, it’s an identical story. Altior is listed to go again in this race and is current best price at 5/1 with Ladbrokes and Coral while Douvan leads the way with those same bookmakers at 1/3.

While nothing is certain, that’s a clear indication of where the bookies see these races. Even if you pair them up for a double, there is nothing exciting happening with 1/3 odds so the 16/1 on offer from 888Sport becomes even more tempting.

How to qualify

This offer is for new customers to the 888 Group so, if you don’t already hold an account here, you are free to take it up and the first step is to register your details via the dedicated landing page.

Now, with funds at your disposal you must stake between £5.00 and £10.00 on this Cheltenham win double. If your punt is successful then any profits will come back to you at 888Sport’s standard book price while anything above that level arrives as a free bet token.

Hot favourites

Altior comes to the Festival with an overall record of 10 wins from 12 races and three consecutive victories since the beginning of December. As for Douvan, the seven year old Willie Mullins trained horse is even better with a perfect record of 13 wins from 13 since making its debut at the end of 2014.

Those stats suggest that both horses are peaking just at the right time for the festival and those short odds on prices across the standard books are justified. For those who qualify therefore, this 888 double gives a great price boost for the first two days of Cheltenham 2017.
