Money Back Offer (18:10 Curragh) – Paddy Power

Posted by Matt (administrator) Matt
Start Time: 12/06/2020 18:10

There’s a big day of racing at the Curragh on Friday and you don’t want to miss this Paddy Power money back offer! Simply place a bet of up to £10.00 on the 18:10 Curragh 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 £6.95 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • We must place our bet between 10:00 on Thursday 11th June 2020 and 18:10 (race-off) on Friday 12th June 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.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Crossfirehurricane (5/1).

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

Aim to lose no more than £1.05 on our qualifying bet


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

Crossfirehurricane wins+£50.00-£51.05£1.05 loss
Crossfirehurricane finishes 2nd 3rd or 4th-£10.00+£8.95+£8.00£6.95 profit
Crossfirehurricane finishes outside top 4-£10.00+£8.95£1.05 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £6.95 if Crossfirehurricane finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th and we stand to lose £1.05 on any other outcome. Risking £1.05 to make a profit of £6.95 gives us effective odds of 7.62, 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.

    Crossfirehurricane had a starting price of 8.00 (7/1). Best odds guaranteed?

      I did notice that Alex, so congrats if you got the extra winnings!

      I didn’t include it here as I posted the night before and Best Odds Guaranteed only applies from 08:00 on the day of the race.
