Tips for this offer

Aim to limit your qualifying loss to around £0.50.

It's entirely up to you how you approach your free in-running bet. Horse racing in-running odds can fluctuate wildly, so if you are attempting to lay your bet, be sure to choose a race with plenty of distance to run.

My preference is to treat the offer as advantage play and not lay the free bet. You're effectively getting a £5 bet for just £0.50.
