Ladbrokes promotion makes it easy to oppose Dawn Approach in Derby

| 01.05.2013

Dawn Approach has already triggered one money back promotion for Ladbrokes punters in this Flat season and he could repeat this feat if securing victory in the Epsom Derby.

Back in May, Ladbrokes refunded all losing bets on the 2,000 Guineas as free bets after Dawn Approach sent favourite backers home happy.

And the same terms exist again for the Epsom Derby, as a victory for Dawn Approach will bring refunds as free bets for every losing horse in the race, up to a maximum of £25.

The offer is for online and mobile customers only, with full terms and conditions available here.

With this safety net in play, backing something else away from the 10/11 favourite becomes less risky and there are numerous options open to punters.

Ocovango brings the best middle-distance form to Epsom with his Group 2 triumph in France in the Prix Gruffulhe and he can be backed at 7/1 to hand trainer Andre Fabre a second success in three years.

However, stall one is a nightmare draw and as one of the more likely frontrunners, he will need an almost perfect break to make it close to the optimum track position.

Aidan O’Brien is mob-handed with five runners and the unbeaten Battle Of Marengo is the choice of his son Joseph.

Ruler Of The World is the only previous 1m4f winner in the field and so has the most guaranteed stamina, while some support has been seen for Festive Cheer, possibly on the back of this article where he was highlighted at 50/1.

Of the remainder, Dante Stakes winner Libertarian cannot be written off if handling the unique demands of Epsom, while German raider Chopin is an unknown quantity.
