Cheltenham Festival 2020 (Day 2) Offer – Ladbrokes

It’s Day 2 of Cheltenham Festival 2020 on Wednesday and Ladbrokes are getting in on the action! They’re giving all customers a £1.00 free bet to use on any of Wednesday’s seven races! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a risk-free potential profit of £5.00 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • This offer is available online and via mobile.
  • The free bet is available between 18:00 on Tuesday 10th March 2020 and 17:30 (last race) on Wednesday 11th March 2020.
  • Free bet is valid on racing at Cheltenham on Wednesday 11th March 2020.

Free Bet:

With the free bet being so small, I suspect many will be happy to just punt this for a risk-free shot at a decent return.

It’s entirely up to you what you place your free bet on. Having looked at the odds available, we could place our free bet on Dame De Compagnie to win the Coral Cup (14:50).

So, if Dame De Compagnie wins, we’ll make a nice profit of £5.00 on this Ladbrokes offer! If Dame De Compagnie doesn’t win the race, we’ve lost our free bet and there’s no harm done.

* Dame De Compagnie won the Coral Cup, resulting in a profit of £5.00 on this Ladbrokes offer. *
