With top jockeys Tom Queally, Kieren Fallon and Frankie Dettori aiming for supremacy and an array of new equine talent on show, this Betfair Weekend Friday promises to be a fine spectacle. More importantly, there are plenty of betting offers and bonuses to take advantage of.
For instance, the Best Odds Guaranteed bonus allow you to take a price safe in the knowledge that if the Starting Price ends up higher, the bookie will pay out at the bigger price. This is becoming more popular with bookmakers and can be found at Victor Chandler, Totesport and Paddy Power among others. It can be particularly useful in the races with larger fields and a lot of market movement due to the lack of form history.
Further to the bonuses, there are plenty of very good offers still available for opening new betting accounts. Betfred will match your initial bet with a free bet of the same value up to £50. They are also offering bonuses on winning multiple horse racing bets. Or you can make a £20 risk free bet with 888sport, who will refund your first bet with them if it loses.
In the Class 1 race of the day at 3.20, Blue Angel, with Richard Hughes on board, looks a prospect, and Field Day – impressive in recent outings – could have enough to make the step up in impressive fashion here.
With the first two races being Maiden Stakes, the market will give the best indications of the horses to watch, so you could do worse than getting on a bonus multiple on the early prices with Paddy Power, who are paying up to a 20% bonus.
