Get a €/£5 free bet for every Geraghty winner on Day Two of the Festival

To celebrate Barry Geraghty’s fancied rides on Queen Mother Champion Chase day at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival, Coral are offering both new and existing customers every incentive to bet again on the Prestbury Park spectacular this Wednesday.

We will give you a €/£5 free bet for every winner Irish jockey Geraghty has on Day Two if you wager €/£20 on the opening contest, the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle (13:30). This can either be a win only or each-way bet.

Punters will have the free bets credited to their account by 12:00 GMT on Thursday, March 17th ahead of World Hurdle day starting.


Geraghty is on board Yanworth, the favourite in that race, the also fancied More Of That in the RSA Chase (14:10) that follows it and Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle contender Campeador (16:50).

Besides these, he is also on board Blazer in our own sponsored Coral Cup (14:50) – where we are paying out on the first six past the post for each-way bets – and Castello Sforza in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper that closes proceedings (17:30).

That means there is a potential maximum of €/£25 in free bets to be reaped if Geraghty grabs glory with all five of his rides on Day Two.

Yanworth has won all four novice hurdles, including a qualifier for the Neptune on Cheltenham Festival Trials day around course and distance back in January. Geraghty has partnered the Alan King gelding on all those occasions.


Punters may alternatively fancied Willie Mullins horse Yorkhill, the impressive winner of the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown last time out, in the Neptune. He’s won all four of his starts under rules for the top Irish trainer, though lacks the experience of race rival Yanworth.

Whichever horse you fancy in the Neptune, it pays to have a €/£20 flutter with up to five €/£5 free bets in the offing for Geraghty winners with Coral.
