Victoria Cup Day: Betting Odds
The Betfred Victoria Cup Day takes place this Saturday 10th May at Ascot, with most online bookies offering free bets for new account holders in the run up to race day.
In 2013, UK runner Excellent Guest won this prestigious race but with only 1 UK horses in the top 15 this year it looks set to be an Irish or French horse that wins the 2014 Victoria Cup.
Bookies Victoria Cup Favourite
Most major bookies see the French 4 year old Gelding Horsted Keynes, trained by R Varian as favourite for the Victoria Cup. With a 66.67% win rate on the flat and having won 4 out of the last 5 races, Horsted Keynes is in great form for another win in the Victoria Cup.
Victoria Cup Odds & Offers
If you’re planing to place a free bet on Horsted Keynes, then make sure you take advantage of the £50 free bet that Unibet offer as they're offering the best odds at 11/1. Brownsea Brink, the 4 year old Bay Colt trained by R Hannon, is the only UK runner in the top 15 and 14/1.

You’ll find that Bet365 offer best odds at 14/1, as well as a £200 free bet for new Bet365 account holders.
