Get a free Kauto Star bet on the Cheltenham Gold Cup

| 18.03.2011

Ladbrokes are allowing punters to have a free Cheltenham Gold Cup bet thanks to a new promotion, which means punters fancying Kauto Star, Long Run or Imperial Commander could end up quids in.

The free bets can be accessed here and could total as much as £60, if the offer is taken advantage of effectively.

All punters have to do is transfer an amount between £5 and £20 into their Ladbrokes account and then when this is staked on a single bet and the result has been settled, the same amount will then be credited to the same account.

Furthermore, this offer can be taken advantage of three times using the promo code FB60, meaning that punters confident of their selections in the first three races of the final day of the 2011 Cheltenham Festival could end up with three free bets for the Gold Cup.

Therefore, for no additional outlay, punters could decide to stake £20 on Imperial Commander to win at Cheltenham Gold Cup betting odds of 4/1, Kauto Star at bigger odds of 15/2 and then a big outsider, which could lead to massive rewards if a shock result is reached.

Punters at this point would do well to remember the result of the 1990 Cheltenham Gold Cup when Norton’s Coin upset odds-on favourite Desert Orchid.

Norton’s Coin went off at 100/1 in the Cheltenham betting and only took part in the race because he missed the entry deadline for the contest that he had been targeted for by trainer Sirrell Griffiths.

Punters wanting to some pointers on some possible winners may want to view Ladbrokes’ tips for day four of the Cheltenham Festival, which gives win and each-way selections for all seven races.

A £20 stake on Long Run winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup would return £100. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of free bets totalling up to £60.
