Place £30.00 on Minella Times @ 10.00 = Potential profit of £270.00

Betfair logo

Lay £25.04 on Minella Times @ 12.00 = Potential liability of £275.44


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

Minella Times wins+ £270.00– £275.44£5.44 loss
Minella Times loses– £30.00+ £24.53£5.47 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £5.47 in qualifying for our £10.00 free bet.

Free bet

Our £10.00 free bet will be credited within 24 hours of our qualifying bet being settled and will be valid for 7 days. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bet into 80% cash, so £8.00. If we take into account our maximum qualifying loss of £5.47 this gives us a guaranteed profit of £2.53 on this Novibet offer!

* Minella Times won the race, resulting in a profit of £2.56 on this Novibet offer. *
