Online bookmaker Blue Square is sponsoring the £100,000 Stewards Cup for the sixth consecutive year and has lined up a fabulous bonus for the finale of Glorious Goodwood on Saturday.
The annual cavalry charge is the betting highlight on the last day of the five-day festival and Blue Square will double the winnings for punters if their horse wins the Stewards Cup by more than a length.
The offer is open to both new and existing Blue Square customers and will apply to win singles and the win part of each way singles. Double winnings will be applied to the first £50 of each customer selection.*
Betting on the Blue Square Bet Stewards Cup is wide open and the race sponsors have cut the price of David Marnane-trained Jamesie after the four-day declarations were announced. The four-year-old gelding is set to carry 8-13 and heads the betting having been cut from 14/1 to 12/1.
130 entries remain in the race but the number will be drastically reduced at the overnight stage as only 28 runners will be allowed to go to post on Saturday. Jamesie looks safe with the cut-off point at 8-12 or lower.
New customers can get a £25 free bet on Blue Square, sign up now and Blue Square will a match the first stake with a free bet up to £25.
