Horse Racing

The Ebor racing festival gets underway in York on Wednesday, August 21st, and as usual, online bookies are offering loads of free bet offers on all of the major races throughout the festival.

You’ll find them offering weekly betting offers and promotions on the Juddmonte International Stakes, the Nunthorpe Stakes as well as the Ebor Handicap.

With 4 days of racing make sure you keep an eye out for online bookies free bets on individual races as well as betting promotions like Bet365's Price Promise and 'Best Odds Guaranteed'.

Ebor Handicap Odds

The biggest race of the week is the Ebor Handicap, which takes place on the last day of the festival at 15.50pm. Opinion is the ante-post favourite who's odds have fallen from 10/1 to 7/1 just recently and it's Ladbrokes who offer best odds.

If you plan to bet on Opinion make sure you claim the Ladbrokes free betting offer which will give you 3 x £10 free bets by just placing 1 £10 bet yourself! Tiger Cliff and Sheikhzayedroad are other strong contenders for the Ebor Handicap with most bookies offering odds of around 10/1 on both runners.

Pallastor, a 4 year old Bay Gelding with a 75% lifetime flat win is another horse to consider using a free bet offer on with PaddyPower offering best odds at 10/1.

Our tip for a strong outsider for the Ebor Handicap would be Saytara. SkyBet offer betting odds of 33/1 on Saytara as well as a £10 free bet that doesn't even require a deposit to claim!

Ebor International Stakes Odds

The International Stakes is a Group 1 flat race that's run over 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 88 yards and is always up there as the most free bet on race as it's the opening day of the Ebor festival.

Al Kazeem, a 5 year old Bay Horse with a 58.33% lifetime flat win, is the bookies clear favourite to win, with the best bookies offering odds of just 5/4 at best. Tornado is second favourite to win the International Stakes with the best odds of 2/1 available at Betfred.

Trading Leather, an Irish 3 year old Bay Colt with a 44.44% lifetime flat win percentage, is best odds (7/1) at PaddyPower. There’s also the PaddyPower free bet offer that's split into 4 separate £25 free bets which allows you to place 4 free bets over the course of the Ebor Festival.

Declaration of War is another runner to consider. This 4-year-old Bay Colt has a 50% lifetime flat win and you’ll get betting odds of 12/1 at most bookies.

Ebor Nunthorpe Stakes Odds

The Nunthorpe Stakes, a Group 1 flat race open to thoroughbreds aged 2 years or older, will run on Friday the 23rd at 15.40pm. With 27 runners in the Nunthorpe Stakes, you’ll find some plenty of contenders for those free bet offers. Shea Shea, Sole Power and Moviesta are the bookies current favourites with Swiss Spirit and Tickled Pink rating as strong contenders and worth a punt if you want to try to increase the profit your free bet generates.

Shea Shea, a 6 year old South African Bay Gelding, ridden by last years Ebor Handicap winner Frankie Dettori, is offered at 7/2 with most bookies so you’ll need to see which offers the best free bet before betting on this runner. PaddyPower offer the best odds on Sole Power at 5/1 and would be our tip for the Nunthorpe Stakes for those using free bets.

The best betting odds on Moviesta are 11/2, again pretty consistent across most bookies. You’ll get the best odds on Swiss Spirit from Bet365 who offer betting odds of 8/1 as well as a fantastic £200 free bet from Bet365 which is one of the most generous out there!

If you fancy betting on a bit of an outsider for the Ebor Nunthorpe Stakes its worth considering runners such as York Glory, Kingsgate Choice or Hamza who are around the 20/1 to 25/1 mark and, although unlikely to win, could generate a massive free bet profit is successful!
