£10 Refund
15:35 Chester

Profit: £7 expected or £4 lock in

Visit Offer
*£10 Refund as a free bet if Idaho wins - visit offer page here

Idaho is a strong favourite (1.67 odds) meaning this is particularly good value today as Idaho is likely to win, meaning you're likely to get a £10 free bet (or the lock is up to £4 rather than £2 to £3).

Option 1 - Bet and Hope
*Bet £10 on any horse other than Idaho in the 15:35 Chester race
Do not bet on Idaho
*Place your lay bet on the exchange

Option 2 - Lock in (requires Oddsmonkey)

*Fill out the trigger bet lay as follows: Method normal, Lay Odds of Idaho, Lay Commission
*Now bet £10 on your horse
Do not bet on Idaho
*Lay your horse as normal using the amount in the "lay stake" box
*Lay Idaho with the amount in the "lay stake" box at the bottom under the "trigger bet lay"

The Outcome
There are 3 possible outcomes:
1) Idaho wins - you receive a £10 free bet.
2) Idaho doesn't win and your bet wins - you've made no profit from option 1, however you've locked in profit from option 2.
3) Idaho doesn't win and your bet loses - you've made no profit from option 1, however you've locked in profit from option 2.

Odds Boost - Chester

Profit: £3+ expected
+ possible £100 free bet

Visit Offer

This offer combines William Hill's daily price boost with their 2Clear promotion to give you a risk free chance at a £100 free bet, and also to make a few quid on the qualifying bet!

*Open the list of horse race meetings on mobile site here
Boost will only show on mobile site, but you can access it on desktop by clicking above link
*Click on any eligible race (listed below)
*Find any horse with close back & lay odds
*Add horse to betslip, and click "boost" to boost the odds
*To work out how much you need to stake for the maximum £100 refund, do 666 / (original odds -1). We use 666 as 15% of this is £100, so we need to "win" £666 to get the full £100. You can do less, i.e. 333 for a £50 free bet and 167 for a £25 free bet.
For example, a horses odds are 5.5 boosted to 5.9. You need to do 666 / 4.5, which gives a £148 stake for the maximum £100 free bet
(You can bet up to £200 on the horse with the boost however will only receive a max £100 free bet)
*Place bet and lay at exchange

You should instantly profit from the boost if you've made the back odds higher than the lay odds
