It’s Cheltenham time again and that means, along with a feast of National Hunt racing, we have a wave of offers and promotions to work through. The first of the enhanced odds deals has already landed and this one applies to Tuesday and it’s for new customers to Bookee.
Under the terms of the deal, a price boost of 20/1 is up for grabs and for that to be triggered, we need Buveur D’Air to win the Champion Hurdle in the 3.30. It sounds like a decent number but let’s check that against the standard markets before we take a look at the mechanics of this offer.

If you are already a customer of the Bookee betting app then you cannot, unfortunately, take advantage of this offer and you will therefore claim their standard odds of 7/4. That’s a common price in the open markets but you can improve on them by taking the best industry odds on Buveur D’Air at 9/4.
We should mention that the horse is a joint favourite with the bookies: Apples Jade can also be claimed at a top price of 9/4 with Unibet and then we move out to third favourite Laurina at 4/1 with Coral.
Those are the market numbers so, if you want to take a crack at this 20/1 offer, here’s what you need to do.
As mentioned above, this promotion is exclusively for new customers to Bookee and they are a mobile only sportsbook. That means that the first step in the process is to head to your usual store and download their app. It’s fast and free and will only take a couple of minutes or so to install onto your device.
Now we need to complete a simple sign up process so you will need to fill in some very basic information before sending it back across a secure server. Wait for a minute or two to be verified and you should then be taken immediately to the Bookee cashier. Add a minimum deposit of £10.00 or more using a debit or credit card and you’re instantly ready to move on.
Betting and Payments
With funds likely to clear straight away, you can stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this opening bet of Buveur D’Air to win the 2019 Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham. The race gets underway at 3.30pm on Tuesday March 12, 2019 and if, at the end of proceedings, Buveur D’Air is confirmed as the winner, payment will made in the following way:
Profits are paid in two steps with an initial sum coming back to you in cash. This will be based on Buveur D’Air’s standard market price to win the race and will land shortly after the Champion Hurdle comes to an end.
The balance, up to that enhanced odds figure of 20/1, will then follow on as a series of free bet tokens within 24 hours.
The main reason why backers are getting behind Buveur D’Air is the fact that the horse won here at Cheltenham twelve months ago. The eight year old is one of two favourites as we’ve seen but that experience may be the clincher for this Nicky Henderson trained horse.
The overall form guide shows 14 wins from 18 rides and Buveur D’Air has only been out of the places once. It’s not a guaranteed offer of course but that’s an impressive record and at excellent odds of 20/1, this could be the perfect time to sign up with Bookee.
