Free Bets and an Extra Place on the Cesarewitch!

There’s some cracking racing coming up this weekend and bet365 customers can be sure of getting extra value for their money.

Saturday’s Cesarewitch Handicap is run over a marathon trip of two miles and two furlongs with a maximum field of 35 set to go to post. It’s not quite the lottery it sounds with several fancied runners obliging in recent years – the biggest winning SP in the last 10 years has been 16/1. This year, all the money has been for Askar Tau, bet365's current 9/2 favourite, and Gee Dee Nen (13/2), the mount of Frankie Dettori. Of course, with so many runners, it pays to have an each way bet and the good news for punters is that bet365 are offering an extra place on the race – ¼ odds,!
Click here to bet on the Cesarewitch and, if you’re a new bet365 customer, qualify for up to £100 in free bets.

What’s more, back any single winner at 4/1 or more in any race televised live on Channel 4 this weekend and bet365 will give you a free bet to the same stake on the next live Channel 4 race. So, have £50 on the 3.25 race at Cheltenham and, if it wins at 4/1 or bigger, receive a £50 free bet on the Cesarewitch (due off 3.50pm). Saturday’s Champion Stakes (3.10pm) could be the last time we see Derby Winner New Approach on a racecourse – bet365 make him a 5/4 shot to go out with a win. He will take all the beating but he’s not been at his best in his most recent races and the French challenger Russian Cross has been well-backed with bet365 (11/2 to 4/1) to topple the favourite. Back him for free by registering with bet365 and placing one qualifying bet of £5 or more. You will then be entitled to a free bet to the same stake (up to £25), with another £75 free bets to be earned in much the same way. Click here to register with bet365 and bet on this weekend’s racing.
