Before The Roar – Behind The Scenes Cheltenham Festival Series
February 28, 2020
Charlie's interest in racing first started when he got a job working at a high-street bookmakers in the year before he went to university. Four years later, having finished his degree in History, a career in horse-racing journalism provided the perfect blend for his interests in both writing and sport.
With less than two weeks to go until the Cheltenham Festival, excitement is reaching fever pitch. We can’t wait to hear the famous Cheltenham Roar as the starter raises his flag for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on Tuesday 10th March.
bet365 have launched a new series in the build up to the Festival, Before The Roar. The aim is to explore the untold stories around the Festival in order to discover what makes Cheltenham such a magical spectacle. As well as their new series, bet365 are also offering new customers up to £100 in bet credits.
Before The Roar Episode One
bet365’s new series, headed by Hayley Moore, will take an in-depth look at what makes the Cheltenham Festival so special. Episode One focuses on the syndicate, a program for owners’ that allows racing fans to own part of a horse for a more palatable price.
Moore visits the Noel Fehily Racing Syndicate, led by the ex-jockey who enjoyed plenty of success at Cheltenham. Twice a Champion Hurdle winner, alongside victories in the Champion Chase, Supreme and Albert Bartlett, he’s focused his energy on establishing his syndicate along with friend David Crosse since retiring from racing.
They now have five horses in training, including Goodbye Dancer who scored at Cheltenham in December 2019 for Fergal O’Brien. After that breakthrough victory at Prestbury Park, the owners are dreaming of Festival success. The nine-year-old has entries in the Coral Cup (50/1) and the Martin Pipe (20/1).
Stay tuned for more episodes of Before The Roar. The series will also be looking at French racing, the source of countless Cheltenham Festival winners, as well as the Willie Mullins’ yard.

bet365 Open Account Offer – Full Terms and Conditions
Offer available to new customers registering on or after 12:00 UK Time on 17th January 2019.
Make a qualifying deposit of £5* or more to qualify for a 100% matched amount in Bet Credits up to £100*. Your qualifying deposit is your largest deposit (capped at £100*) made in the 7 days prior to you claiming the offer. PayPal or paysafecard, where available, cannot be used for either your qualifying deposit or any subsequent withdrawal of returns from Bet Credits stakes unless you have completed Know Your Customer procedures (KYC) and entered a Postal Verification Code (PVC) or we have successfully verified two accepted forms of your Identity Documents. For more details on accepted Identity Documents, how to complete KYC, or to upload your Identity Documents, simply log in to your account, go to Members then My Account and select Know Your Customer.
You must claim your offer within 30 days of registering your account.
The maximum amount of Bet Credits that can be claimed is £100*. For example, a qualifying deposit of £150 will qualify for £100 of Bet Credits.
Releasing your Bet Credits
Your Bet Credits will be held in your account balance and are non-withdrawable. To release your Bet Credits you must place qualifying bets with a total stake value equal to or greater than the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100*) and they must settle within 30 days of claiming the offer.
Your Bet Credits will normally be available to use within one hour of the qualifying settled bet requirement being met.
You may have more than one Bet Credits offer available on your account at any one time. However, qualifying settled bets will only count towards releasing one of the offers. You may choose which offer is active within the Members section.
Bets placed using our Telephone Betting service will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits.
Any single bets placed at odds of less than 1/5 (1.20) will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. In multiple bets at least one selection must have odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater to count.
In market/fixture combinations that only have two or three potential outcomes (for example Soccer Full Time Result), where you have placed bets on more than one potential outcome, either pre-match or In-Play, only the outcome with your highest cumulative stake will count towards the settled bets requirement (if you have placed the same highest cumulative stake on more than one selection in the same market/fixture combination then only one will count towards the settled bets requirement). Any bets settled on other selections in the same market/fixture combination will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. This term is applied in conjunction with the other restrictions. For example, if you have a £10 bet on Man Utd to beat Chelsea and a £15 bet on Chelsea to beat Man Utd on the Full Time Result market at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater, only the stake on Chelsea will count towards the release of your Bet Credits (if both bets were for £10 then £10 would count towards the release of your Bet Credits). If you were to place a further £10 bet on Man Utd to beat Chelsea at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater, this cumulative £20 stake will count towards the release of your Bet Credits and not the £15 stake on Chelsea.
Fully Cashed Out, Instant Games, Gaming, void bets and In-Play bets which are settled as a push do not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. Where a stake has been partially Cashed Out, only the remaining active stake will count towards the release of your Bet Credits. Where a bet has been edited using our Edit Bet feature, the original stake will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits and only the new stake on the new bet will count.
If you do not have qualifying settled bets to the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100*) within 30 days of claiming the offer, your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed and the offer will be closed.
Using Bet Credits
Your Bet Credits are non-withdrawable. Any returns from Bet Credits stakes will be added to your Withdrawable Balance but Bet Credits stakes are not included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a return of £30 (£20 winnings plus £10 stake), whereas a £10 Bet Credits stake placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a net return of £20, as the £10 Bet Credits stake is not returned.
Stakes can be funded in part by your Bet Credits and part with your Withdrawable Balance; however the Bet Credits element of the stake will not be included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) which was funded by £5 Bet Credits and £5 cash would give a net return of £25 (£20 winnings plus £5 cash stake) as the £5 Bet Credits stake would not be returned. If a bet is void and has had an opportunity to win (for example, in the event of a push), Bet Credits stakes will not be returned. If a bet is void and has not had an opportunity to win (for example, when a Goalscorer bet is placed on a player who does not then take part in the match), Bet Credits stakes will be returned.
For the purpose of Cash Out, the value displayed will already have the Bet Credits stake removed and will be the actual return received if Cashed Out.
Your Bet Credits cannot be:
⁃ transferred to Casino, Games, Poker, Vegas or Bingo;
⁃ used as stakes on Tote (including other pool betting), Colossus bets and Lotto markets;
⁃ used as stakes on Bankers, If Bets, Reverse If Bets, Teasers or bets placed using our Telephone Betting service.
Your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed if your account is inactive for 90 consecutive days. Making a deposit, placing a Sports bet or participation in any Casino, Poker, Games, Vegas or Bingo product is deemed as having activity on an account.
Bet Credits can be used as a qualifying bet for the following offers:
⁃ ITV Racing 4/1
⁃ Feature Race 4/1
⁃ Bore Draw Money Back
Bets placed using Bet Credits will not qualify for the following bonuses:
⁃ Soccer Accumulator Bonus
