Derby Day is rapidly approaching but the Epsom meeting isn’t just about one race, even if it is one of the biggest Group One Flat events in the world. The entertainment begins on June 1 this year and among Friday’s card is a series of top class renewals including The Oaks and the Coronation Cup.
Cracksman was one of the favourites for last year’s Derby but in 2018 as a four year old, he is now highly fancied to take that Coronation Cup. The horse is a short priced option in the standard betting but, new customers at Ladbrokes could look to increase their value with enhanced odds of 33/1* should Cracksman win his race at Epsom on Friday.
*18+. New customers only. Promo code ‘F50’ required. Certain deposit methods excluded. Min £/€5 on win or each-way bet excluding Tote or pools = match max £/€50 free bet. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Bet must be made within 14 days. Free bet valid for 4 days. Free bet stake not returned. Single bets only. Free bet cannot be used on certain markets. T&Cs apply.
With two days to go before the off, the ante post betting for the Coronation Cup shows Cracksman as a very short option at 1/3 in places while Sport Pesa have the current industry best price of 4/11.
Following the leader are Idaho and Hawkbill who are both at best odds of 6/1 with 888Sport. This could be the most one-sided market of the entire Epsom meeting and while the promotion is far from guaranteed, it’s a strong proposition that deserves further investigation.
As the offer is exclusively for new customers to the Ladbrokes organisation, the first step is to register for a new account. When you reach the sign up page, you’ll find that only basic information is required but do remember to enter the Promo Code CRACKSMAN when prompted to do so.
This is all done over a secure server and will only take up around two minutes of your time after which, you can make an initial deposit in order to cover the bet. This has been set at a minimum of £5.00 via a debit or credit card and once you have followed those simple initial steps, it’s time to move on.
Staking and Payment
With funds showing in your account, stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on Cracksman to win the Coronation Cup at Epsom on June 1, 2018. In the event of a winning bet, Ladbrokes will pay out in a two part procedure which works as follows:
An initial profit will be paid in cash, based on Ladbrokes SP price for a Cracksman victory and this is set to arrive in your account shortly after the race comes to a conclusion. The balance, up to that enhanced odds figue of 33/1, will then come back as a series of free bet tokens within 24 hours.
Alternatively, if the bet fails and Cracksman doesn’t win this race, you still have the potential to profit as the bookie will award a free bet token as a consolation.
Those are the main terms of this offer but you can check all ts and cs over on the Ladbrokes promotions page and finally, we would just ask you to note that any free bet tokens awarded here must be used up within 4 days or they will run out.
Cracksman finished third in the 2017 Investec Derby but his form has been superb ever since that Epsom disappointment twelve months ago. A second place followed at the Curragh a month later but since then this John Gosden trained horse has enjoyed four straight wins so looks to be in great shape for Friday’s race.
This isn’t a certainty of course but based on form and the market prices, Cracksman to win the Coronation Cup looks to have a strong chance and there are excellent enhanced odds of 33/1 waiting for new Ladbrokes customers.
