Supreme Novices Hurdle: Join Ladbrokes for 50/1 on Getabird

While the action at the Cheltenham festival builds all the way to Friday and the Gold Cup, the opening day carries some of the best races of the week. Included on the card is the Supreme Novices Hurdle with the highly fancied Getabird leading the market ahead of a strong field.

The betting is actually quite tight but if you were looking to get behind this horse, there is a new customer promotion up for grabs that will take that market price and lift it all the way up to a stunning 50/1. Here is a look at those standard odds together with details of how this promotion works.

Out in Front

For those that already have an account with Ladbrokes, Getabird is currently quoted at odds of 13/8 while the best odds from around the market are the 7/4 quoted by Sun Bets. Behind the leader we have a small gap to second favourite Kalashnikov at 9/2 with Bet365.

Things start to open up from this point with third favourite Summerville Boy some way behind at a top price of 10/1 with William Hill so the bookies seem to think this is between two horses. If, you’re favouring Getabird and like the sound of that 50/1 price boost, here’s what happens next.

Ladbrokes Sign Up

If you have no dealings here then you are free to take up this offer and the first step is to sign up for a new account. You can cross over from here and complete that registration process, remembering to enter the Promo Code CHELT18 when asked to do so,

Other than the code, you will only need some very basic information and after that, you should arrive at the cashier’s section. At this point, make a deposit of at least £5.00 using either a debit or credit card and you can then proceed with the next section where you will place the bet.

Staking and Getting Paid


With the money now showing in your account, stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on Getabird to win the Supreme Novices Hurdle for 2018 at this price boosted promo of 50/1. If the bet lands and this horse comes home in first place, payment will work in two ways.

Initially, you will receive a return based on Ladbrokes’ standard market price and as we’ve seen, this currently stands at 13/8. This will be paid as cash and should appear in your account shortly after the race comes to an end.

The remainder, up to the 50/1 figure, will then be paid as a series of free bet tokens and these should appear within 24 hours. Remember to look out for them as they must be used within 4 days or they will expire. Alternatively, a free bet token worth £5.00 will be issued if Getabird does not win this race so there is potential to make a profit whatever happens.

Those are the main points of the offer but please feel free to check all terms and conditions as these are clearly displayed on the Ladbrokes’ promotions page.


While Getabird will be experiencing his biggest challenge to date, this Willie Mullins trained horse has enjoyed an impressive start to his career with four straight wins in four outings. All of these have come in Ireland and Mullins supporters will be confident that this six year old can take that form across to Cheltenham this week.

It’s a tight market as we’ve seen but this is a strong option and for backers of Getabird, it’s unlikely that odds of 50/1 are going to be beaten.
