Royal Ascot 2020 gets underway on Tuesday and it’s time for another Sky Bet money back offer! If our horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th in the 13:50 at Royal Ascot, Sky Bet will refund our stake as cash, up to a maximum of £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £9.29 and here’s how…
- This offer applies to our first bet on the 13:50 at Royal Ascot.
- Qualifying bets must be placed between 11:00 on Saturday 13th June 2020 and 13:50 (race-off) on Tuesday 16th June 2020.
- If fewer than five runners come under starters orders, Sky Bet may withdraw the offer.
- If our horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th, Sky Bet will refund our stake as cash, up to £10.00.
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 Circus Maximus.
At the time of writing, laying our bet with Betfair gives us the smallest qualifying loss.

We can calculate our lay stake using my matched betting calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £9.48…
Place £10.00 on Circus Maximus @ 3.25 = Potential profit of £22.50
Lay £9.48 on Circus Maximus @ 3.45 = Potential liability of £23.22
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Circus Maximus wins||+£22.50||-£23.22||£0.72 loss|
|Circus Maximus finishes 2nd 3rd or 4th||-£10.00||+£9.29||+£10.00||£9.29 profit|
|Circus Maximus finishes outside top 4||-£10.00||+£9.29||£0.71 loss|
So, we’ll make a nice profit of £9.29 if Circus Maximus finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th and we stand to lose a maximum of £0.72 on any other outcome. Risking £0.72 to make a profit of £9.29 gives us effective odds of 13.90, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.
If eligible, cash refunds will be credited within 24 hours of the race finishing.
* Circus Maximus won the race, resulting in a loss of £0.72 on this Sky Bet offer. *
