Cheltenham Chase: Bet on the Champion Hurdle for a casino bonus of up to £100

Cheltenham is finally here and you can claim a casino bonus of up to £100 by joining the fun!

When the tape is cut for the Supreme Novices Hurdle, today at 13:30, Cheltenham will have officially returned for another glorious 4 days of racing madness. As The Festival opens, Coral’s Cheltenham Chase returns with another great offer to help set you up for the racing.

Today if you place a bet of £10 or more on the 15:20 Champion Hurdle, any time between 00:00 and the race start, you’ll automatically unlock a casino bonus of up to £100! The bonus can be used to play our huge range of slots and table games in the Games Tab and downloadable client.

The Champion Hurdle has been run since 1927 and, for this edition, Ruby Walsh will leave it to the last moment to decide whether to ride favourite Faugheen (at evens), or Hurricane Fly (8/1); both trained by Willie Mullins who will also put long shot Arctic Fire (14/1) into the mix. The favourites are rounded off with Jezki, last year’s winner (9/2), and The New One (3/1) who ran last year but faded to 3rd towards the finish.

Run over 2 miles, 110 yards, The Champion Hurdle is not as long and gruelling as some Cheltenham events – particularly The Gold Cup. However a small, balanced, field teeming with quality will make for a very open race with some old scores to be settled. Jezki’s long shot victory last year (at 9/1) came at the expense of The New One who was halted by a falling rider. Were The New One to win, he would join an elite club of horses with three Champion Hurdle victories, which last occurred when Istabraq triumphed in 2000.

Like every Cheltenham race, the Champion Hurdle will be filled with excitement, drama, rivalries and agony as a year of work comes down to a few minutes racing. With the Coral Cheltenham Chase a £10 bet on this race will unlock an exclusive casino bonus – so what are you waiting for? Be sure to check back for your bonus funds, which should be credited automatically, and for daily exclusive offers until Friday.
