  • Some will offer enhanced odds or more favourable each-way betting terms on certain races to attract new customers while others will give concessions such as money back as a free bet if your horse falls or finishes second.
  • Check out our bookmaker offers section

Below are links to individual bookmaker pages. Here you can find the best offers from leading operators. We have highlighted the best free bets and promotions for the Punchestown Festival.

Punchestown Bet Types

Customers should first examine all the markets available to them before making a bet. These are some of the markets that you can expect to bet on with the leading sportsbooks.

Win/Each-Way

The most popular way to place a bet on the Punchestown Festival this year will be to make a wager on a horse to win or an each-way selection. The win selection will require the horse to cross the line first to get the returns.

Meanwhile, the each-way option will see customers get returns should their selection finish in second, third or even fourth, depending on the number of runners in the race.

Forecast/Tricast

Customers looking for high Punchestown betting returns will be interested in the Forecast and Tricast markets. However, this is one of the most difficult markets to wager on. Players must accurately predict the runners that will finish in first and second for the Forecast, or first, second and third for the Tricast. They must also finish in the correct order.

Betting W/O

There are so many talented horses set to embark on the famous Punchestown course this year. That could mean that the Betting W/O market could be a solid choice.

In this market, the outright favourite will be taken out of contention. That means that customers will be betting on the horse that wins without the market leader.

This could be a particularly popular market when it comes to the Champion Hurdle as Ireland’s imperious mare Honeysuckle is hot favourite to extend her formidable record.

Place

Place betting is extremely popular for customers that are interested in making a bet on an outsider. For this bet to be a winner, the horse that you have bet on must finish in a place position but doesn‘t need to win the race.

In terms of the Place market, it doesn‘t matter if the selection finishes first, second or third, the returns will be the same.

Best Tips for Betting on Punchestown

Punchestown races are some of the most competitive races run each year, with everyone trying their hardest to win. Because the racing is so competitive the best advice regarding Punchestown betting is to be selective with your bets. Don’t bet in every race

One simple way to avoid the temptation of betting in every race is to do a Tote Placepot each day. This bet involves:

  • The first six races each day.
  • Finding a placed horse in each of the races and not necessarily the winner.
  • The potential to win for a small investment as the Placepot pools tend to exceed 1 million euro on each day of the Punchestown Festival

It is also worth considering:

  • Most bookmakers will offer enhanced odds or money back concessions on selected Punchestown races so check which sites are offering something extra on any race you are intending to have a bet on.
  • The enhancement may only apply to a portion of your stake but every little helps when trying to show a profit at the end of the week.
