The Dante Festival 2018 gets underway at York on Wednesday and you don’t want to miss this Money Back Special from Paddy Power! Simply place a bet of up to £10.00 on the 15:30 at York and if Harry Angel wins, Paddy Power will refund all losing bets as a free bet, up to a maximum of £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us an overall potential profit of £6.90 and here’s how…

Qualifying Bets:

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.

Qualifying bets must be placed between 09:00 on Thursday 10th May 2018 and the start of the race, to be eligible.

For our qualifying bet, we need to back and lay any horse other than Harry Angel. At the time of writing, the lay odds aren’t quite tight enough, so I’ll use Tasleet (7/2) in the following example and I’ll update the bottom of the post with some actual odds after the race.

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

Aim to lose no more than £0.60 on our qualifying bet


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

Tasleet wins + £35.00 – £35.60 = £0.60 loss
Harry Angel wins - £10.00 + £9.40 + £7.50 (extract 75% from our £10.00 free bet) = £6.90 profit
Another horse wins - £10.00 + £9.40 = £0.60 loss

So, if Harry Angel wins, we’ll make a nice profit of £6.90. Any other outcome and we’ll lose £0.60. Risking £0.60 to make a profit of £6.90, gives us effective odds of 12.50. So, given that Harry Angel is odds of just 1.80 (4/5) to win the race, this is 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 horse racing for 7 days.

If you’re unsure how to extract 75% cash from a £10.00 free bet, check out my Free Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.
