Betfair Exchange – Money Back Offer (14:25 Newmarket)

There’s a big day of racing at Newmarket on Thursday, and you don’t want to miss this Betfair Exchange money back offer! Place a bet of up to £10.00 on the 14:25 Newmarket, and Betfair will refund your stake as a free bet if your horse fails to place. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a potential profit of £7.03 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Applies to your first bet placed after 16:00 on Tuesday 20th September 2022.
  • Money back as a free bet up to £10.00 if your horse does not finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
  • Applies to back bets only; lay bets do not qualify.

Qualifying bet

Please see my ‘Qualifying Bets Guide‘ if you’d like more information about them and how they work.

It’s entirely up to you which horse you go for, but it would make sense to select a horse with pretty long odds hoping it won’t finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

At the time of writing, ‘Bellosa‘ is available at back odds of 14.00 and lay odds of 14.50.

You can calculate your lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator.

Lay stake required: £

Total profit: £

As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lay stake should be £9.22.

Place £10.00 on ‘Bellosa’ @ 14.00 = Potential profit of £123.50

Lay £9.22 on ‘Bellosa’ @ 14.50 = Potential liability of £124.47


Let’s look at your profit/loss for the possible outcomes.

Bellosa does not finish
1st, 2nd or 3rd
– £10.00+ £9.03+ £8.00£7.03 profit

So, you’ll profit £7.03 if Bellosa does not finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd, and you’ll lose £0.97 on any other outcome. Risking £0.97 to make a potential profit of £7.03 gives you effective odds of 8.25, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.

If eligible, free bets will be credited within 24 hours and valid on any horse racing market for 7 days.

If you’re unsure how to convert your £10.00 free bet into £8.00 cash (80%), please see my ‘Free Bets Guide‘ for a walkthrough.

* Bellosa finished 8th, resulting in a £7.03 profit on this Betfair Exchange offer. *
