Horse racing free bets, betting tips and offers: September 2020

Horse racing and betting are intrinsically linked, so having a wager on the biggest meetings and events is natural for many sports fans.

The Grand National is one of the top betting events of the year, while horse racing purists love nothing more than tuning in to a big race at the Cheltenham Festival.

Here is the ultimate freebets.co.uk guide to betting on horse racing – and claiming free bets.

Horse racing betting update – October 2020

October brings the start of the jumps season in the UK & Ireland and we have two big meetings to kick us off this month.

The traditional weekend opener at Chepstow goes ahead on October 9 & 10, with the Silver Trophy and a usually informative Novice Chase headlining the Saturday card.

October 23 & 24 sees the return of Cheltenham, with their first meeting of the new season taking place.

On the flat, October 17 is a date for the diary, this is when Ascot Champions Day takes place.

A week later we have the Vertem Futurity Trophy at Doncaster, one of the biggest two year old races of the season and a place where we often see next year’s classic contenders.

How to get horse racing free bets

With so many races to pick from, getting horse racing free bets can let sports fans have a slice of the action on more events throughout the year.

Bookmakers routinely make horse racing free bets available to new customers, but if you already have an account on a particular site you will unfortunately not be able to get them.

For new users, it is a case of simply signing up for an account – find our list of the best bookmakers here – then making a deposit and placing any necessary qualifying wagers.

Once these steps have been followed, bookmakers will automatically credit the free bets.

What to think about when betting on horse racing

Anyone familiar with horse racing betting with bookmakers will already be familiar with how to read the form, which is the most important factor to think about when placing wagers on the sport.

The form shows which horses have been running well of late, as well as giving an indication over which horses should be avoided when it comes to betting on a big race.

The state of the ground must be taken into account as well, with the weather always one of the most important things to think about when betting on horse racing.

Some horses thrive when the ground is soft but others will struggle to make up time in a race if the surface is not firm, so sometimes it is best to leave horse racing bets as late as possible.

Domestic horse racing betting

Freebets.co.uk has picked out the most exciting domestic horse racing meetings of the year:

  • Cheltenham Festival – Taking place each March to coincide with St Patrick’s Day, the Cheltenham Festival includes massive races such as the Gold Cup and the Champion Hurdle
  • Aintree Grand National – The Grand National may be something of a lottery in betting terms, but this Aintree meeting attracts even the most casual of betting fans to have a wager each year
  • Royal Ascot – Millions of pounds in prize money is usually up for grabs at Royal Ascot, which always makes headlines due to regular appearances from members of the Royal Family
  • Glorious Goodwood – Late July is usually when Glorious Goodwood is held, with top races including the Stewards’ Cup, the Nassau Stakes and the Goodwood Cup

International horse racing betting

International horse racing betting is popular too, so consider a wager on some of these events:

  • Melbourne Cup – Australia’s top horse race, the Melbourne Cup is part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and usually has a prize fund of millions of dollars up for grabs
  • Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – Usually held at Longchamp Racecourse in Paris on the first Sunday in October each year, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is considered a truly elite race
  • Kentucky Derby – Run on the first Saturday in May, the Kentucky Derby is known as The Run for the Roses and makes up part of the American Triple Crown
  • Dubai World Cup – Held since 1996 at the Meydan Racecourse, the Dubai World Cup has been won two years in a row by the Irish horse Thunder Snow

Horse racing betting markets to watch

Horse racing betting is usually quite straightforward, but there are a few tempting options available at the bookmakers for those who do not just want to bet on which horse crosses the line first.

For races expected to be dominated by one particular horse, more value can be found from a bet on the length of the victory, or it is possible to forecast the first three horses instead.

For major meetings like the Cheltenham Festival, horse racing fans can place bets on which jockeys and trainers will be able to record the most wins over the course of the event.
