You Missed It...



There’s really nothing worse than coming second, especially if you’ve put money on it! So that’s why the latest Free Bet promotion from Betfred is such a good idea.

So if you like to have a flutter on the horse racing but seem to pick the runner-up more than the winner, this is for you. It’s very simple.

  • Place a win or each way single on any of the nominated races on the specified day.
  • If your selection finishes second, Betfred will give you your win stake back as a free bet up to £10.

This promotion is always updated. So each day there is a different selection of races to choose from. However, the promotion doesn’t apply to ante-post bets.

For example, on Wednesday 17th November, the races that the ‘Free Bet If 2nd’ promotion included were:

Wednesday’s Free Bet if 2nd Race(s):

13:50 Hexham
14:00 Ffos Las
14:50 Warwick
17:30 Dundalk

Depending on which races are scheduled in the UK, options do include some overseas races. Of course, you have to have an idea of the horses running before you place a bet, so some races will suit you better than others.
