Where to spend your free bets this week

Roscommon

A Grade 3 event is the highlight on Monday at Roscommon and it is no surprise to see a Willie Mullins odds-on favourite. Hercule Du Seuil has won four of his last five starts takes on four rivals, he should be a cut above them.

Cork

Donnacha O'Brien's Proud And Regal is the star name at Cork on Tuesday and takes a huge drop in grade from Group 1 company against the likes of Auguste Rodin into a Listed event. Brother Joseph O'Brien runs the Caracal who won on his first start for the yard last time at Tipperary.

Newmarket

Newmarket hosts its three-day Cambridgeshire meeting which kicks off on Thursday until Saturday. The feature on Thursday is the Group 3 Tattersalls Stakes and the big Irish hope is Military for Aidan O'Brien, who was an impressive winner of a Naas maiden on his only start. He takes on promising juveniles Eben Shaddad and Legend Of Time.

Friday's feature is the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes where Ylang Ylang hopes to get back to winning ways after her disappointing run last time for Ballydoyle. She takes on smart types including the unbeaten Shawari under Oisin Murphy.

The Cambridgeshire Handicap on Saturday presents a great opportunity to find some hidden value and Greek Order is the current favourite. The Group 1 Cheveley Park and Middle Park Stakes are among the highlights with River Tiber likely to take his chances for Ireland.

Longchamp

It doesn't get much better than Arc weekend in Paris which hosts an array of top-class contests. Continuous will take his chances in the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe on Sunday following his easy win at Doncaster in the St Leger. Sprewell and Emily Dickinson look likely to also fly the flag for Ireland.

Westover and Hukum have been left in at forfeit stage and will take on the unbeaten French star, Ace Impact, who heads the betting.

What is a Free Bet?

Thurles 22 January 2023 The scene at the County Tipperary venue racegoers pictured in the betting ring Healy Racing
© Photo Healy Racing
A horse racing free bet is a bet credited to your account when you sign up with a bookmaker. You must deposit and in most cases place your first bet, to activate the free bets.

Horse racing free bets are available 365 days a year - good news for horse racing enthusiasts and most bookmakers will offer high-quality specials for major horse racing festivals, including the Cheltenham Festival, Punchestown, Aintree Grand National and Royal Ascot.

What types of betting offers are there?

New Customer Offers

The most popular new customer offers are bet-and-get welcome offers, in which you place your initial bet to get free bets credited to your account.

Bet-and-Get

One of the most common bets for new customers. Register with an operator, place a bet of a specified amount and get free bets in return - place a bet of €10 and receive a €50 free bet.

Money-back bets

Fancy some fun with your sign up offers? Register with a bookmaker, place a bet with your own money and the bookmaker will refund your money for various outcomes, such as if you finish 2nd to the SP favourite.

Deposit Bonus

These bet offers are less common and are claimed when you deposit money with a bookmaker and you are rewarded with a percentage of your deposit. Some offer 100% while others offer 50%. For example, if you deposit €20 you will get a 50% bonus of €10.

Matched bonus

Register with an operator, place a bet and it will match the value of your bet - place a bet of €10 and receive a €10 free bet. Among the most popular of betting offers

Bet through the card

New customer betting offers often include bet-through the card around big festivals. For those who enjoy betting on every race on the card, this is an enjoyable one for you. Place a horse racing bet in the first race and get a free bet for every other race on the card. This adds further excitement to a day out at the races.

Free bet no deposit

The least common of all the free horse bets, these are bonuses you can claim without having to make a deposit and are awarded when registering with a bookmaker.

Existing Customer Offers

Bookmakers will also offer free bets to existing customers when placing a number of bets in a week for example. There are also free-to-play games and money-back specials which are popular with existing customers.

Best Odds Guaranteed

Get the best odds out there for your selection. Most major bookmakers offer BOG. If you back a horse to win at 4-1 and it wins at a starting price of 6-1 you will be paid out at the bigger odds of 6-1

Enhanced Odds

Bookmakers such as William Hill will boost the odds of horses during major festivals, for example boosting an odds-on favourite from 2-5 to 33-1. stakes are often limited to €1

Extra Places

Some operators offer extra places on select races each day and you will also find opportunities to choose your own extra places with the like of bet365.

Money back free bet

Place a bet, for example on certain outcome and get your money back as a free bet stake if your lose.

Free-to-play games

Try your hand at free games offered up by bookmakers. Paddy Power's 'Beat The Drop' is particularly popular - answer a series of questions correctly to be in with the chance of winning €5,000.

Withdrawing your Free Bets

Once your free racing bet has been credited to your account, in most cases you must place another bet - once you have met the minimum requirements. You are not able to withdraw the money as cash.

If the bet you place with your horse racing free bet credit is successful, you can then withdraw the money as cash. The return does not include your stake.

Here at irishracing.com, we highlight only the very best free racing bets out there to benefit both new and experienced bettors.
