Start Time: 20/08/2020 14:15

The Yorkshire Ebor Festival 2020 continues on Thursday and you don’t want to miss this Genting Bet offer! Simply place a single bet of £10.00+ on the 14:15 at York and get a £10.00 free bet if our selection loses and Devious Company wins the race. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £7.07 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • We must place a single bet of £10.00+ or £10.00 each way on the Yearling Stakes.
  • Our bet must be placed before 14:15 (race-off) on Thursday 20th August 2020.
  • If our first bet loses and Devious Company 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 Devious Company.

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

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 Tinochio @ 8.50 = Potential profit of £75.00

Lay £9.26 on Tinochio @ 9.20 = Potential liability of £75.93


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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Extracted Profit/Loss
Tinochio wins +£75.00 -£75.93 £0.93 loss
Devious Company wins -£10.00 +£9.07 +£8.00 £7.07 profit
Another horse wins -£10.00 +£9.07 £0.93 loss

So, if Devious Company wins, we’ll make a nice profit of £7.07! Any other outcome and we’ll lose £0.93. Risking £0.93 to make a profit of £7.07, gives us effective odds of 8.60. So, given that Devious Company is odds of just 2.875 (15/8) 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.

* Happy Romance won the race, resulting in a loss of £0.93 on this Genting Bet offer. *
