Ladbrokes to dish out free football bets on Derby Day

This weekend promises to be an action packed one for sports fans with the most prestigious flat race in the world and the Champions League final both taking place on Saturday.

The Epsom Derby takes place at 16:30 with Golden Horn the runaway favourite in the betting at 6/4.

John Gosden’s colt has been victorious on all three of his assignments to date and had the beating of stablemate Jack Hobbs (6/1 for the Derby) last time out at York.

With everyone other than Frankie Detorri’s ride offering odds of 6/1 or greater though, there will be plenty of of punters trying to get the Italian beat and with Ladbrokes’ latest offer there’s even more incentive to have a crack at the Derby.

If your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd in the 2015 Epsom Derby the bookmaker will refund your stake as a free bet on football up to £25*.

And with Barcelona taking on Juventus in what is effectively the 2014-15 season finale later that day those who prosper from this fantastic offer won’t have to wait long for an opportunity to cash in.

Barca are the favourites to emerge victorious and complete an historic treble, with the La Liga and Copa del Rey winners on at 1/3 to lift the European Cup.

Juventus, however, will have other ideas and after securing the Scudetto and Coppa Italia titles are going for a treble of their own.

The Old Lady will have been buoyed by the goals of Carlos Tevez this term and after sending Real Madrid packing in the semi-final will be confident of springing another surprise at odds of 9/5.
