Man Utd’s Arsenal clash offers Cheltenham opportunity

At the start of one of the biggest betting weeks of the year, Ladbrokes are giving their customers a chance to get a head start in their staking plans with a free bet for the first day of the Cheltenham Festival.

All you need to do to qualify for the freebie is place a £20 bet of your choice on Manchester United’s FA Cup clash with Arsenal on Monday night.

Once that bet is placed, your account will be credited with a £5 free bet to be used on any race market on day one of the greatest show on turf.

With some well-fancied horses running on the curtain-raising day of the Festival, this is a great chance to get your bankroll on the move.

Willie Mullins’ Douvan, Annie Power, Un De Sceaux and Faugheen all compete on Tuesday and are all ante-post favourites to give the Irish trainer a dream start to the meeting. Don’t miss the chance to get on a roll of your own.

A minimum of £20 must be staked on a single bet either on mobile or online in order to qualify, with only bets placed between 8am on Monday and kickoff applying for the offer.

All free bets will be credited by 09:00 on Tuesday 10th March and will expire at 17:15 on the same day.

Manchester United are the 6/4 favourites to beat Arsenal, who are 19/10 chances, and continue on their mission to win a trophy this season.
