2nd Place to SP Favourite Refund

For this refund you only get it if your horse finished 2nd to the horse that starts the race as favourite. This isn’t as lucrative as the standard 2nd place refund reload but can be worth doing if you pick the right races. You need to place a qualifying bet as per usual but follow some simple rules.

How to Maximise Your Chances of Getting 2nd Place to SP Refunds

Strong Favourite

Only place qualifying bets on races where there is a strong favourite

Not Favourite

Don’t bet on the favourite

Small qualifying loss

Take much smaller qualifying losses on horses. You are looking for 2 events to happen in a race. Firstly that the favourite in the race wins and secondly that the horse you placed your qualifying matched bet on, comes 2nd. Don’t take any loss over £1.00 on a £25.00 bet

Joint Favourites

If there are a few horses that are joint favourite, or at very close odds, don’t bet on the race. Odds move over time and your horse could become the favourite and then the refund won’t be honoured

Clear 2nd Favourite

If there is a strong favourite and a clear 2nd favourite, the 2nd favourite is the horse to hone in on, keep your eye on the odds for this horse and take it if you can get a very close match

Close to race

Try and place your qualifying matched bet close to the start time. It will be more frantic, but you will have more of an idea of who the favourite is and what the odds will be when they go to post.

I like to have a bet at the weekends. Yesbets is a great resource for helping me find all the latest offers from bookmakers. They’ve helped me grab plenty of free bets over the years. Jin
Yesbets really helps me get the most from my betting. Their guides on Cheltenham and Ascot ensure I never miss an offer from the bookies. I grabbed over £400 for Cheltenham and helped me come out a winner. James
It’s great to have a site that compiles all the best offers in one place. Not just the signup stuff from bookmakers, but promotions for accounts I already have. Yesbets is my first port of call before I have a bet. Chris
Yesbets takes the hard work out of finding free bets. Not only does it show the best free bets from the big boys you’d expect, but also the bets from the scores of smaller bookies that want a piece of the pie. Need all the free bets you can stomach? You’re in the right place at Yesbets. Tibbs
