It’s Day 3 of the Cheltenham Festival 2020 and the Sky Bet money back special is not to be missed. Simply place a bet on any horse in the 13:30 at Cheltenham and should our selection finish second, third, fourth or fifth, Sky Bet will refund our stake back as cash! This means we have a potential profit of £9.10!

Terms of the offer

  • Up to £10.00 refund as a cash.
  • Refund will trigger on any horse that finishes second, third, fourth or fifth.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed between 11:00 on Tuesday 10th March 202 and 13:30 (start time) Thursday 12th March 2020.

Qualifying Bet and Strategy

For this offer we will simply back and lay our selection while taking the lowest qualifying loss possible. It is a very simple offer to take advantage but we will only make a profit if our horse finishes second, third, fourth or fifth. For this offer we have opted to place our qualifying bet on Samcro at odds of 5.0.

Let’s take a look on the matched betting calculator to see our qualifying loss:

As we can see our £10.00 back bet at odds of 5.0 and lay odds of 5.4 will result in a small loss of £0.90 whether Samcro wins or loses the race.
