The World Cup may be dominating our TV screens right now but away from the football in Russia, we’re enjoying a great summer of general sport. For horse racing fans, attention turns specifically to Royal Ascot this week with a host of top class renewals in store and to celebrate, 888Sport have opened up with a choice of price boost deals for new customers*.
The offers focus on the favourites and here is a rundown of the choices together with the mechanics of this promotion.
*New customers only. £10 minimum deposit using promo code “BOOST”. Qualifying bet must be placed at the normal odds Min bet £5, max bet £5. Extra winnings paid in FREE BETS and added within 72 hrs of qualifying bet settlement. Free bet stakes not included in bet returns. Free bets expire 7 days after credit.
20/1 Rhododendron to win the Queen Anne Stakes
The Queen Anne Stakes gets us underway in style on Tuesday with a race over one mile for four year old horses and above. Your option here is to take the favourite Rhododendron to win at enhanced odds of 20/1 and they compare very favourably with the open market where 888Sport are offering 11/4 to existing customers.
You can improve on that by taking the industry best price of 3/1 at Black Type in what is a tight market. Both Benbatl and Recoletos are available at 5/1 in places but Aidan O’Brien’s Rhododendron is a strong contender with four wins and a total of eight placed-finishes from nine outings.
16/1 Lady Aurelia to win the Kings Stand Stakes
If you’re not convinced about the first offer, you could cross to this five furlong sprint where the market is tight again, but this time it’s between just two horses. Lady Aurelia is the joint favourite for this one at 2/1 with 888Sport along with Battaash while both horses can be found at 9/4 in places.
Once again we have a tight call there but this is a race that Lady Aurelia comes into on the back of two wins and two additional places from four outings.
20/1 Without Parole to win the St James’s Palace Stakes
Your final option is for the St James’s Palace Stakes where Without Parole has been boosted to 20/1 from 11/4 by 888Sport. Of the three options, this is the market where the horse in question has the biggest lead over the chasing pack as second favourite Tip Two Win follows on at 9/2 with William Hill.
Without Parole is trained by John Gosden and has three wins in three at this early stage of his career.
How to Proceed
The promotion is for new customers to 888Sport so, if you don’t already hold an account here, you can cross over to complete a simple sign up. This part of the process requires just basic information and once it’s finished, you should find yourself at the cashier’s page.
The minimum deposit here is £10.00 but remember to avoid the eWallet options as they are all excluded from the deal. Add your funds using a debit or credit card and remember to input the Promo Code BOOST when prompted to do so.
Money should clear straight away and you should then stake the fixed sum of £5.00 on one of the three horses listed above. Wait for the race in question to finish and, if you’ve landed a winner, payment will be in two parts.
An initial profit will come back to you in cash based on 888Sport’s standard market price for the win while the balance, up to whichever of those price boosts is applicable, will hit your account as free bet tokens within 72 hours.
Look out for those tokens as they must be used within 7 days or they will expire and while that is a full summary of the main points of this deal, the terms and conditions are listed in full over on the 888 promotions page.
We’ve outlined the prices available together with a brief guide to form so now it’s over to you. All of the three horses in question are favourites for their respective race and while there are different price boosts available, they all represent good value in their own right.
It’s a tricky decision but if you are new to the 888 group, this is a good time to get on board as the correct call could lead to some seriously boosted profits.
