Qualifying Bet and Strategy

We will treat this bet a simple Bet X Get X offer. All we need to do is back and lay a qualifying bet and extract our profit from the £10.00 free bet should our selection place second, third or fourth. As usual we will be finding a close match to place our qualifying bet on. We should aim to lose no more than £1.00 on our qualifying loss. We have opted to place our qualifying bet on Final Venture at odds of 8.0.
