Free Bets For Goodwood Horse Races

There are a number of different ways in which you can take advantage of all the Goodwood betting and the best way is to keep track of all the Goodwood free bets and the best place to do that is right here.

Here’s a brief rundown of the types of free bets you can expect to find for the five days of fantastic action on the Sussex Downs at Glorious Goodwood.

Through-The-Card bets

These types of bookmaker enhancements are hugely popular as they give you a free bet in every race if you place an initial bet on the opening race on the card.

So with eight races scheduled to take place on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood, you could find yourself with a free bet in seven races by grabbing the best of the Goodwood free bets. 

Typically, it’s Paddy Power, Betfair and 888sport that provide these fantastic betting opportunities and as soon as we get them, we’ll be updating our pages so that you can make the most of any Goodwood betting offers

Price boosts

Do you fancy Stradivarius to win the Goodwood Cup or Baaeed to win the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood?

Well, you will not be the only one and for that reason their Goodwood odds will not be huge as they are likely to go off short prices for their respective races.

But the way that you can make more money than you bargained for is by taking advantage of some likely price boost offered by some of Britain’s leading bookmakers.

There can be some huge enhancements offered and most of the time you can get double-figure odds about a horse that may be trading at odds-on. A favoured tactic of 888sport, William Hill and Betway among others, this is a way of making some big money from some of the sport’s leading superstars.

Goodwood Betting Tips

We’ll be looking to make the most of the best Goodwood odds throughout Glorious Goodwood but you can also help yourself by taking note of the regular winners at the meeting.

Trainer Mark Johnston has been the leading trainer at Glorious Goodwood a record 13 times and he is sure to feature on the Goodwood roll of honour a couple of times this season. 

He’s likely to face plenty of competition from the likes of John & Thady Gosden and Charlie Appleby as he attempts to win yet another champion trainer title at Glorious Goodwood.

Baaeed will be the subject of many Glorious Goodwood free bets as he bids to maintain his unbeaten record. William Haggas’ superstar looks set to race in the Sussex Stakes on Wednesday and looks to be one of the ‘banker’s of the 2021 Glorious Goodwood Festival.

William Buick finished the 2021 Glorious Goodwood as Top Jockey and he’ll be a popular pick to follow up this year. He’ll have some serious challengers though, including the likes of Ryan Moore, Hollie Doyle and Tom Marquand. 

Where To Bet

There are hundreds of bookmakers willing to take your bets and you can place a bet in person on the high street in any betting shop, on your phone or travel to the course and get the entire Goodwood betting experience.

In Britain, everybody will be used to seeing the names of Ladbrokes, William Hill, Coral, Paddy Power and Betfred and their presence on the high street mean the technologically useless and the shrewd spreaders of money can take advantage and bet somewhat anonymously.

But there are plenty of bookmakers who are not on our high street but will still be offering plenty of Goodwood odds to get stuck into. 

These include 888sport, Betway and Virginbet and we’ll be making sure that we bring you all the best Goodwood free bets from these operators.

How To Bet

You can bet in the following ways:

In person:

Head to your nearest high street and walk straight into one of the bookmakers and you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere and all the Goodwood betting that you could care to ask for. With friendly staff on hard, they will be happy to guide you through all the aspects on how to place a bet.


Fire up your laptop or PC and head to any of the bookmaker’s websites. But the best way is to click on any of the bookmakers that you see on this website, open up an account and take advantage of any of the free bet offers that you can find


Head to the online store on your phone and download the app of choice for your particular bookmaker. It’s never been easier to open up a bookmaker account and place a bet so don’t delay, open an account now and get ready for all those Goodwood free bets.

How to use Your Goodwood Free Bet Offers

There’s plenty of different ways to use your free bets, and it could depends on what type of offer you sign up to. 

If it’s a through-the-card free bet offer, you will have to use them on those specific races on that card. So if you place a bet on the first race, you will receive a free bet to use on each of the other races on the card (quick hint – there are eight races on Tuesday, so you could get an extra free bet if signing up to a through-the-card offer for that day, as the rest of Glorious Goodwood is all seven-race cards!). 

If you sign up to a normal free bet offer (i.e bet £10 get £30 in free bets), you can use these free bets on any type of bet (check T&C’s for sign up offer as there may be minimum odds you will need to bet on etc). But you could use them for various kinds of bets, including doing a ‘banker’ acca. These can be over one day or over the full five days of the Festival. An example of a ‘banker’ acca for the 2022 Glorious Goodwood Festival could be:

  • Trueshan (Goodwood Cup)
  • Baaeed (Sussex Stakes)
  • Nashwa (Nassau Stakes)
  • Royal Aclaim (King George Qatar Stakes)

All four are strongly fancied to win their respective races and the bookies would be running scared if they do all win!

Of course you could use the free bets to do a horse you fancy each-way at a big price, as you wouldn’t be using your own actual money so it could be worth the risk! A good race to pick one out E/W could be the Stewards’ Cup, with the betting set to be wide open for the race and with four of the last five winners winning at double-figure odds, we could be in for another big priced winner this year!

Types Of Bet


A straight win bet placed on a single horse


A bet on two horses in different events. Both selections must win to guarantee a return.


Same as a double but on three horses in different races. All three selections must win to guarantee a return.


Four or more selections in one bet. All of the selections must win to guarantee a return.


A bet comprising three selections and four bets – three doubles and a treble. A minimum of two selections must win to guarantee a return. For example, a £2.50 Trixie would cost £10. A £2.50 each-way Trixie would cost £20.


A bet involving three selections and seven bets – three singles, three doubles and one treble. It is the equivalent of a Trixie but with the addition of three singles. For example, a £2.50 Patent would cost £17.50.


A bet consisting of four selections and 11 bets – six doubles, four trebles and a fourfold. A minimum of two selections must win to guarantee you a return. For example, a £2 Yankee would cost £22.

Lucky 15

A popular betting type among punters, it consists of four selections and 15 bets (hence the name) – four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a fourfold. Equivalent to a Yankee but with four singles, and only one selection must win to guarantee you a return. For example, a £2 Lucky 15 would cost £30.


A straight forecast is correctly predicting the finishing order of the horses in first and second in a race.


“An each-way bet is a two-part bet, with half the stake going on the selection to win and the other half on the selection to place. It costs double that of a traditional win bet and will yield some sort of return if the selection wins or is placed.

For example, you place £5 each-way (£10 in total) on a horse priced at 8-1 with a bookmaker offering 1/4 odds for three places. If the horse places you will receive £15, but if the horse wins you will collect £60 (£45 for the win and £15 for the place), both returns including the original stake.”

Reverse Forecast

A reverse forecast is correctly selecting the first two horses but in no particular order.
