PRN: Supreme Offer from Betfred on Festival Opener
Supreme Offer from Betfred on Festival Opener
CHELTENHAM, England, March 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Betfred have announced that they will be refunding all bets on the Supreme Novices' Hurdle if the current 9/2 favourite Darlan wins the race.
Darlan has been well-supported in the market for the Festival opener following his encouraging run in the Betfair Hurdle where he looked to be travelling powerfully before taking a crashing fall underÂ AP McCoy.
"This is a cracking offer and punters could get off to the best possible start if Darlan wins the Supreme Novices'," said Betfred chairman Fred Done.
"Even though JP McManus has put it up as his best bet, I'm happy to take him on even though I could be staring down the barrel of a seven-figure payout if he's right!"
Steps To Freedom is the 6/1 second-favourite in the market behind Darlan with Cinders And Ashes and Galileo's Choice both next in the betting at 7/1.
The offer is available from 8.30am on Saturday morning and applies to all bets placed from that time onwards.
Betfred will also be offering five places on the JLT Specialty Chase, the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup, the Vincent O'Brien County Hurdle and the Coral Cup from 8.30am onwards on Saturday morning.
