It’s the richest Group One horse race in the world and this Saturday, the latest edition of the historic Epsom Derby will get underway. Some of the best three year olds are beginning final preparations and while this is a busy time for those directly involved, this is another spot on the calendar when many millions of pounds will be staked on the outcome.
Unlike last year, we have a very clear favourite for the Derby in 2000 Guineas winner Saxon Warrior but thanks to this new customer offer from SportNation, there is a price available that should be far more interesting.

33/1 Saxon Warrior to Win
Those are the enhanced odds available under this promo and while 33/1 sounds like an impressive figure, how does it compare with the standard market options? At the time of writing, most bookmakers have Saxon Warrior down as an 8/11 chance to win the Derby while the current top price stands at 4/5 with Black Type and 188Bet.
Moving out from the favourite, Roaring Lion comes next at 6/1 with William Hill and then we have a further gap to Young Rascal at 12/1 with Black Type. All of those numbers help to underline the potential value in this SportNation offer so, if you are happy to take it further, here’s what needs to happen.
As we mentioned, the promotion is exclusively for new customers so, if you don’t already hold a SportNation account, you can cross over from here to complete a very simple sign up page. The bookie only asks for the most basic of information and after sending that through securely, you will be welcomed as a new account holder within around two minutes or so.
Now we need some funds to cover that bet so please add a minimum of £10.00 via a debit or credit card. Remember to type in the Promo Code SNODDS into the relevant box and you can then make the qualifying bet straight away.
Betting, Payment and Rollover
With money clear and ready to go, stake up to the maximum of £1.00 on Saxon Warrior to win the Investec Derby for 2018. The race goes off at 4.30pm on Saturday June 2 and, if the bet lands, payment will be in two phases.
In the first instance, profits will be paid out in cash based on SportNation’s standard market price for a Saxon Warrior win in Saturday’s big race. The balance, up to 33/1, comes back as free bet tokens which are referred to as Bonus Funds by this bookmaker and these are scheduled to be paid on Monday June 4 at Noon BST.
Those funds come with a small rollover requirement so, you will need to play through the amount three times using minimum odds of 1.60 and you will have 30 days in which to complete this. After this point, any profits can then be withdrawn.
That completes a full summary of the main terms of this offer but you are free to check all of the ts and cs as they appear on the SportNation promotions page.
Saxon Warrior’s trainer Aidan O’Brien has expressed concerns over worsening weather conditions that have changed the going to Soft ahead of Saturday’s big race. Those comments have had no effect on the betting with the 2000 Guineas winner still widely backed to double up at Epsom.
It’s not a certainty that Saxon Warrior will win but he is the hottest Derby favourite for some time and if you are new to SportNation, this promo carries odds of 33/1 that could lead to significantly boosted profits.
