Galway Races 2020 Offer (Day 1) – Paddy Power

It’s Day 1 of the Galway Races 2020 on Monday and you don’t want to miss this Paddy Power money back offer! Simply place a bet of up to £10.00 on the 17:45 at Galway and if our horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th, Paddy Power will refund our stake as a free bet, up to a maximum of £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £7.15 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • We must place our bet between 10:00 on Saturday 25th July 2020 and 17:45 (race-off) on Monday 27th July 2020.
  • Offer applies to the win market and the win part of each way bets only.
  • If less than 7 runners take part, this offer will revert to money back if 2nd.
  • If our horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th, Paddy Power will refund our stake as a free bet, up to £10.00.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unsure about how to place qualifying bets, check out my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how they should be done.

It’s entirely up to you which horse you go for, but it would make sense to select a horse with fairly short odds in the hope of a 2nd, 3rd or 4th place finish.

At the time of writing, the lay odds aren’t quite tight enough, so I’ll use fictional lay odds for The Mpex Kid (3/1) in the following example and I’ll update the bottom of the post with an actual selection after the race.

We can calculate our lay stakes using my matched betting calculator.

Outcomes:

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

OutcomeBookieExchangeExtractedProfit/Loss
The Mpex Kid wins+£30.00-£30.85£0.85 loss
The Mpex Kid finishes 2nd 3rd or 4th-£10.00+£9.15+£8.00£7.15 profit
The Mpex Kid finishes outside top 4-£10.00+£9.15£0.85 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £7.15 if The Mpex Kid finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th and we stand to lose £0.85 on any other outcome. Risking £0.85 to make a profit of £7.15 gives us effective odds of 9.41, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.

If eligible, free bets will be credited within 2 hours of the race ending and will be valid on any horse racing market for 7 days.

If you’re unsure how to extract £8.00 cash (80%) from the £10.00 free bet, check out my Free Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

* The Mpex Kid was available at back odds of 3.25 and lay odds of 3.75. The Mpex Kid finished 4th, resulting in a profit of £6.53 on this Paddy Power offer. *
