The Leeds-based firm are sponsoring the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the meeting for the first time on Tuesday week and report brisk ante-post business across all races - even before today's huge double concession.

Sky Bet Racing PR Manager Michael Shinners said: "There are still plenty of cards to be played in terms of final running plans so we felt the time was right to go non-runner/money back on all races - having previously had this offer on the four big championship races.

"The Best Odds Guaranteed pledge also means that if the returned SP of a horse is bigger than the price a customer takes beforehand then the bet will be settled at the SP. It's a fantastic double offer - for a fantastic meeting."

Final running plans have still to be made for the likes of Annie Power, Faugheen, Briar Hill, Benefficient and Al Ferof with the Festival now just over a week away, but Sky Bet punters can now afford to cover all bases safe in the knowledge that their stakes will be returned if they put their money down for the wrong race.
