Non-Runner Insurance Explained

Non-Runner Insurance William hill

Typical for horse racing, the Non-Runner Insurance bet has become somewhat of a classic offer for Cheltenham Festival.

With bookies going to extreme lengths to accommodate punters and tipsters, big guns such as Bet365 and William Hill above all sit top of the shelf for Non-Runner Insurance offers, or Non-Runner No Bet (NRNB) as they are also referred to.

Speaking of Non-Runner Insurance, it needs to be noted that William Hill were the first bookmaker to offer non-runner concession on every Cheltenham Festival 2017 race. Their offer is available starting from the end of January and is intended to help bettors secure their bets if their horse doesn’t run at the Festival.

William Hill offers full cash back if your selection missed the festival, or free bet if it ends up running in a different festival race.

Bookmakers have a rather good understanding of how difficult and tricky ante-post bets can be, especially as most trainers wait until the very last moment to decide on a race their charge will run in.

In order to get eligible for Non-Runner Insurance, you need to place your ante-post bet with William Hill in excess of minimum £10 qualifying bet. Free bets of up to £25 per customer and per race are in store for all selected horses which get involved in a different race.

Market exclusions are applied here with win and EW Singles only included. Note that Multiples do not count in Non-Runner Insurance bet.

Non-Runner Insurance is applied to bets placed on mobile, desktop, text, telebetting and in shop.
