Glorious Goodwood 2019
This week we have the Glorious Goodwood festival, which is one of the highlights of the British flat horse racing calendar. This is a five day festival starting on Tuesday and finishing on Saturday. Whilst not as big as Cheltenham and Ascot, this is a popular horse racing event, so expect to see, at the very least, most of the usual ITV racing offers running. Expect to see second place refund offers, some nice bet and get offers, and there should be some guaranteed profit to be made from price boosts. If you're looking to smash lots of the offers this week, then we'd certainly recommend checking out the Oddsmonkey Premium Trial, giving you 10 days of access for just £1, allowing you to take advantage of all of their great tools and up-to-date information on all of the latest offers and price boosts.
Below are the offers that have been announced so far, and we'll be updating this guide throughout the week as new offers get released.
Whenever a big event on the Matched Betting calendar comes around, you'll want to make sure you're fully prepared for it! This includes things such as writing out all of the races & offers each day that you'll be attempting, checking all of your accounts prior to the festival for funds / free bets etc, and also making sure you're signed up to every site & exchange!
Most of you will have Betfair accounts already, however for an event such as this it is imperative you get both a Smarkets and Matchbook account. Smarkets are great for extra place offers as liquidity is generally great, and you will receive 0% commission if integrated with Oddsmonkey. Matchbook will also give you 0% and tend to have better odds than any other exchange for horses. All these little savings you make by comparing the odds will add up and help increase your profit by the end of the festival.
And of course, Oddsmonkey is a must! Their Oddsmatcher alone is worth the subscription, but for this festival you will also benefit from the racing matcher, the price boost thread, the 0% commission through Smarkets, and more! Check out the links below to sign up to any of these sites if you haven't done so already!
Please note there will be plenty more offers being announced, 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 10 day trial for £1 here.
Updated 16:00 on Friday to reflect expected offers on Saturday, but please double check the bookmaker promotions pages to see that these offers are running.

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 the 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!
