Qualifying bet

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 or 3rd place finish.

At the time of writing, ‘Royal Scotsman‘ is available at back odds of 2.375 (11/8) and lay odds of 2.76.

For this offer, Smarkets are the best option due to Sky Bet being part of the same group as Betfair.

Laying your bet at Betfair would probably be fine, but if you don’t want to risk it, Smarkets is your safest bet.

0% commission for 60 days

You can calculate your lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator.

As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lay stake should be £8.67.
