Place £10.00 on Teona @ 2.875 = Potential profit of £18.75

Betfair logo

Lay £9.33 on Teona @ 3.10 = Potential liability of £19.59


Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

Teona wins+ £18.75– £19.59£0.84 loss
Another horse wins– £10.00+ £9.14£0.86 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.86 in qualifying for our £5.00 free bet.

Free bet

Our £5.00 free bet will be credited by 10:00 on Friday 14th May 2021 and will be valid on the Yorkshire Cup the same day (15:10 York). Free bet stakes will not be returned with any winnings.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bet into 80% cash, so £4.00. If we take into account our maximum qualifying loss of £0.86, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.14 on this GentingBet offer!

* Teona failed to win the 15:10 York on Wednesday, resulting in a profit of £3.14 on this GentingBet offer. *
