Make sure you’ve budgeted your funds so they’re in the right place ready for the offers you’re doing. The main ones over the next 3 days are:
1. Sky free In-Play tonight
2. Boylesports bet £40 get £20 free Premier League (app only, see thread for info). X2 (Includes Liverpool match too)
3. Channel 4/1+ offer (if you have the funds) Bet365 and Betfair
4. Money back 2nd up to £25 Hills/Lads (Channel 4 Races) – around £300-worth need in backs/lays
5. William Hill In-Play – £10 free in-play for all televised matches when staking £20. 4 matches total.
6. Sky money back 2nd offer from Saturday’s first televised race up to £25. (Probably)
7. Bet365 Risk-Free £50 MNF
I make sure my exchange account is at a decent level (around £400) and that my bank has enough available to cover all the deposits I’ll need to make. As a rule for planning ahead for weekend deals, withdraw funds from bookmaker accounts on Monday/Tuesday so you can divide your money correctly on the day and not have it stuck somewhere random.+078naD 2 December 18, 2015 at 6:15 pm
Spot on Dash, do about the same as you said there.
Don’t forget 888sport’s awesome free bets when your 3 selected teams score and their in play saturday offer too

Shaun combine William Hill & Ladbrokes it increases the chances of 2nd place ALOT!+0JDUBU 1 December 18, 2015 at 9:38 pm
Hey Ryan I was just wondering how was best to combine these bookies to improve chances?what ones will you be picking?i nee to get my money bank after yesterday 🙁
Thank you+0RyanB 11 December 18, 2015 at 9:43 pm
Walka Ladbrokes & WH offer money back 2nd on all channel 4 races (minimum 5 runners) so what you want to do is pick the races where there isn’t many runners and even better if there is two horses which are clear favourites…that way you just back both of them one with ladbrokes one with william hill and you improve your chances of a 2nd place finish for example….
The 2:25 at Ascot the favourite is currently 3.0 then 3.25 then 5 then 13…so with those odds if you backed the favourite and 2nd favourite other time you would get alot of 2nd place finishes!+0JDUBU 1 December 18, 2015 at 10:02 pm
Thank you so much for explaining that I will give it a try tomorrow 🙂 let’s get some boooms this weekend!+0beh 7 December 18, 2015 at 10:15 pm
What sort of hit rate do people manage with 2nd place refunds?
Having done ~10 in a similar fashion to how Ryan describes (favourites in smaller races), probably half have actually won but never any 2nd places. I’ve found it time consuming to get decent odds and at best you still end up a couple quid down.+0RyanB 11 December 18, 2015 at 10:29 pm
I usually get 1 in 3 it varies…when you get races where there is two clear favourites they are the best ones! ones where its open i dont really bother with+0Tony 10 December 18, 2015 at 10:32 pm
You need about 1 in 10 to break even.
Looking at my records, I have done 53 and managed only 6 refunds
I am now far more selective on which specific races I will bother with – i.e. minimal runners and ideally a clear 2nd favourite+0RyanB 11 December 18, 2015 at 10:41 pm
I definitely manage more than 6 in 53..maybe thats because as tony suggests i only do ones where i think its easier to pick a 2nd place+0kjillman 1 December 18, 2015 at 10:43 pm
Be careful with these,take up too many they’ll restrict you.Bookies aren’t stupid they know you combine with WH ladbrokes,paddy etc.+0RyanB 11 December 18, 2015 at 10:46 pm
I dont see how they could possibly know that….you seem to think the bookies are like the FBI all im doing is betting on the favourite in a horse race? I think youll find many punters like to bet on the favourite…..+0beh 7 December 18, 2015 at 10:52 pm
Interesting to hear other peoples experiences. Almost feels like it’s easier to pick a winner than 2nd place as the latter isn’t worth fighting for if someone has an insurmountable lead so its often some random outsider?
I can see the potential, it’s more just that it’s relatively time consuming for something that’s not a certainty. With some smaller meets it seems to be a necessity to wait till near to post to get reasonable lay odds/liquidity. Thankfully no such problem for the 1425 tomorrow, already got a bet on that.+0
