Glorious Goodwood 2018 Matched Betting Guide
The Qatar Goodwood Festival, otherwise known as Glorious Goodwood, is one of the most popular Horse Racing festivals of the year behind Cheltenham and Royal Ascot. There are 5 days of racing and plenty of risk-free offers for you all to be getting stuck in to!
This year will be great in terms of offers as William Hill are offering a bet boost for every televised race from which you can make around £5 (per race) with the chance of winning a £100 free bet. There's also a risk free bet on the first race everyday from Betway, as well as £20 risk free from Skybet on day 1. They're literally handing out free money! Lots more bookies will be getting involved throughout the week too, and there is likely to be a few offers kicking about in your email inboxes so make sure you're checking your emails daily.
Goodwood Festival Details
Other than the awesome bookmaker offers, this is all you need to know:

Please note there will be plenty more offers being posted throughout the week, and Oddsmonkey is the best place to keep track of them all. If you haven't checked them out yet then you can get a 7 day trial for £1 here.
Risk Free Profit Offers
There's just a few promotions that are guaranteed profit at the moment, and from them you can make £20+ Profit.
There will also be lots of price boosts throughout the week, as well as a boost on every televised race from William Hill. You can make between £3-£5 from these boosts AND qualify for 2 Clear so it's well worth making sure you have cash in them. The standard ITV racing promotions will also be running throughout the festival.
Racing Refund Offers
There will be plenty of Racing refund offers from the bookmakers that are pretty much the same as the ITV refunds on Saturdays. We've consolidated most of them as "ITV refunds" however there's a couple more notable offers that should definitely be done, such as the Genting offer and William Hill's 2 Clear/bet boost for every race. Some of the common promotions for ITV racing are:
- Refund if your horse wins - Bet365, Betfair Sports
- Refund if your horse finishes 2nd to sp - Betway, SportingBet, Betfred, Ladbrokes
For all the latest racing refund offers, please see the Oddsmonkey Daily Offers Calendar here
Extra Place Offers
Extra Places can be another source of juicy profit when there are big horse racing festivals. The potential profit is practically unlimited, so attempting these offers can be a great boost to your Matched Betting bank roll. It's basically when a bookmaker will pay out 4 places in a race for example, yet the exchange is only 3; you can make money here if 4th is paid out as both your back and lay bets will win.
Last year there were extra place offers on every day, with 2 races per day being exceptionally good in terms of extra places. You can check out our guide on how to complete extra place offers here. Extra places aren't a guaranteed profit unless you cover the whole field, but if you follow the guide and read the tips put together for you then you should hopefully hit some extra places and potentially make a few hundred £ almost risk-free!
OddsMonkey have the Extra Place Matcher which really helps when completing this offer as it saves you so much time. It's similar to the Oddsmatcher however searches for extra place odds only, and show you how much you can make from each one.
Extra places can be quite scary at first as you don't want to make a mistake. Make sure you read our guide properly as it will tell you everything you need to know; and if you have any questions then just ask!
Oddsmonkey Goodwood Tools
You'll notice I recommend Oddsmonkey a lot for those moving from 'welcome offers' on to 'existing customer offers'. You can read all about the reasons why in my full Oddsmonkey Review.
It will be particularly useful over the Qatar Goodwood Festival period, for the reasons I detail below:
