It’s Day 3 of Royal Ascot 2020 on Thursday and you don’t want to miss this Black Type free bet offer! Simply place a £10.00+ single bet on the 13:15 at Royal Ascot and Black Type will give us a £5.00 free bet to use on the first race on Friday. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.00 and here’s how…
- Minimum stake of £10.00.
- We must place a single bet on the 13:15 at Royal Ascot on Thursday 18th June 2020.
- Applies to the ‘Race Winner’ market only.
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 place your qualifying bet on.
At the time of writing, the lay odds aren’t quite tight enough, so I’ll use fictional lay odds for Tritonic (8/1) in the following example and I’ll update the bottom of the post with an actual selection after the race.
At the time of writing, laying our bet with Betfair is likely to give 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 £9.20…
Place £10.00 on Tritonic @ 9.00 = Potential profit of £80.00
Lay £9.20 on Tritonic @ 9.80 = Potential liability of £80.96
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Tritonic wins||+£80.00||-£80.96||£0.96 loss|
|Tritonic doesn’t win||-£10.00||+£9.01||£0.99 loss|
So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose around £1.00 in qualifying for our £5.00 free bet.
Our £5.00 free bet will be credited by 12:00 on Friday 19th June 2020 and must be used on the 13:15 at Royal Ascot on Friday 19th June 2020. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.
By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £5.00 free bet, so £4.00. If we take into account our expected qualifying loss of around £1.00, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.00 on this Black Type offer!
