There’s a big day of racing at Ayr on Wednesday and it’s time for another Sky Bet money back offer! If our horse finishes 2nd or 3rd in the 15:20 Ayr, Sky Bet will refund our stake as cash, up to a maximum of £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £9.01 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Applies to our first bet on the 15:20 Ayr.
  • Applies to bets placed between 10:00 on Monday 17th May 2021 and 15:20 (race-off) on Wednesday 19th May 2021.
  • If fewer than six runners come under starters orders, Sky Bet may withdraw the offer.
  • If our horse finishes 2nd or 3rd, Sky Bet will refund our stake as cash, up to £10.00.

Qualifying bet

If you’d like more information about qualifying bets and how they work, please see my qualifying bets guide.

It’s entirely up to you which horse you go for, but it would make sense to select a horse with fairly short odds in the hope of a 2nd or 3rd place finish.

At the time of writing, A La Voile is available at back odds of 5.50 (9/2) and lay odds of 6.00.

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £9.20…

Place £10.00 on A La Voile @ 5.50 = Potential profit of £45.00

Smarkets logo

Lay £9.20 on A La Voile @ 6.00 = Potential liability of £46.00

Outcomes

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

Outcome Sky Bet Smarkets Cashback Profit/Loss
A La Voile wins + £45.00 – £46.00 £1.00 loss
A La Voile finishes 2nd or 3rd – £10.00 + £9.01 + £10.00 £9.01 profit
Any other outcome – £10.00 + £9.01 £0.99 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £9.01 if A La Voile finishes 2nd or 3rd or we’ll lose a maximum of £1.00 on any other outcome. Risking £1.00 to make a potential profit of £9.01 gives us effective odds of 10.01, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.

If eligible, cash refunds will be credited within 24 hours of the race finishing.
