Betfair New Customer Offer – Bet £10 At The Ebor Festival, Receive £40 In Free Bets

Bet £10 on the York Ebor Festival and get £40 in free bets

The York Ebor Festival is one of the highlights of not just the racing year, but the British sporting year. A bumper crowd will be treated to four days of top-class action this week as the Knavesmire builds up to Saturday’s Ebor – traditionally one of the biggest betting races in the world.

Prior to this, however, there are no fewer than three Group 1’s for punters to feast upon, including Friday’s Nunthorpe Stakes, which provides us with the opportunity to gauge who will take over the now-retired Battaash’s title as the fastest horse in training.

With a fantastic week in prospect, Betfair has produced an incredible new customer offer that centres around York this week.

The Ebor Festival is considered by many to be one of the best weeks of flat racing. Competitive Group races are intertwined with large field handicaps, and with race distances varying from 5f to over 2m, there truly is something for everyone.

The action itself reaches a crescendo on Saturday when the Ebor takes centre stage. First contested in 1843, the Ebor Handicap is one of the richest prizes in horse racing. In 2019, the prize money reached a whopping £1,000,000, making it the first million-pound race contested in Britain.

Although not quite at that level this year, the substantial pot on offer often leads to the race attracting an increasingly high-quality field. Despite this influx of better quality horses, however, the race has turned up more than a few shocks in recent years, with 20/1, 25/1 and 33/1 winners coming out of the race in the last ten years.

It is not only the Ebor itself that makes York so appealing though, as the festival plays host to a glut of competitive races such as the Melrose, Lonsdale Cup and Yorkshire Oaks.
