Start Time: 20/06/2020 13:50

It’s Day 5 of Royal Ascot on Saturday and you don’t want to miss this Genting Bet money back offer! Simply place a single bet of £10.00+ on the Coventry Stakes and get a £10.00 free bet if our selection loses and Admiral Nelson wins the race. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £7.81 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • We must place a single bet of £10.00+ or £10.00 each way on the Coventry Stakes.
  • Our bet must be placed before 13:50 (race-off) on Saturday 20th June 2020.
  • If our first bet loses and Admiral Nelson wins, we’ll get a £10.00 free bet.

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.

For our qualifying bet, we need to back and lay any horse other than Admiral Nelson.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Dark Lion.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Betfair gives us the smallest qualifying loss.

Betfair are currently offering new customers 0% commission up to £500 for the first 30 days.

Place £10.00 on Dark Lion @ 11.00 = Potential profit of £100.00

Lay £10.02 on Dark Lion @ 11.00 = Potential liability of £100.20


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

Dark Lion wins+£100.00-£100.20£0.20 loss
Admiral Nelson wins-£10.00+£9.81+£8.00£7.81 profit
Another horse wins-£10.00+£9.81£0.19 loss

So, if Admiral Nelson wins, we’ll make a nice profit of £7.81! Any other outcome and we’ll lose a maximum of £0.20. Risking £0.20 to make a profit of £7.81, gives us effective odds of 40.05. So, given that Admiral Nelson is odds of just 3.75 (11/4) to win the race, this is a profitable offer in the long run.

If eligible, free bets will be credited within 4 hours of the race settling and will be valid for 3 days. Free bet stakes are not returned with any winnings.

If you’re unsure how to extract 80% 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.

* Nando Parrado won the race, resulting in a loss of £0.19 on this Genting Bet offer. *
