Please see my qualifying bets guide if you’d like more information about them and how they work.

It’s entirely up to you which horse you go for, but it would make sense to select a horse with relatively short odds in the hope of a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th place finish.

At the time of writing, Shin So Bright is available at back odds of 3.50 (5/2) and lay odds of 3.70.

You can calculate your lay stakes using my Matched Betting Calculator…

As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lay stake should be £9.51…

Place £10.00 on Shine So Bright @ 3.50 = Potential profit of £25.00

Lay £9.51 on Shine So Bright @ 3.70 = Potential liability of £25.67


Let’s look at your potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

As you can see, you’ll make a nice profit of £7.31 if Shine So Bright finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th. You’ll lose a maximum of £0.69 on any other outcome. Risking £0.69 to make a potential profit of £7.31 gives you effective odds of 11.59, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.

If eligible, your free bet will be credited within 2 hours of the race ending and valid on any horse racing market for 7 days.

If you’re unsure how to convert your £10.00 free bet into £8.00 cash (80%), please see my free bets guide for a walkthrough.
