The Sky Sports cameras head to Wimbledon on Thursday for greyhound racing’s second biggest night of the year as the St Leger rolls into to town, as we bring you the latest St Leger odds from Bet365.
As with all major greyhound meetings on Sky, there is bound to be significant betting interest from punters all around the country with eight live races to get their teeth stuck into, culminating with the captivating St Leger final itself 21:45.
The final this year is shaping up to be a cracker.
It’s hard to rule out any of the six finalists, with three of the runners trading within one or two spots of each other at the head of the betting. It is likely that as the final approaches, one dog will be well backed into favouritism; therefore it is advisable to get your bets on early to make sure you grab the best possible price.
St Leger : Bet365 Free Bet Offer
Its a cracking Thursday card at Wimbledon with the WilliamHill.com St Leger, as Bet365 celebrate with the announcement of a new free bets offer worth £200/€200 to all customers to spend on any race from a full card at Wimbledon! Claim here!
Although there isn’t much between the top three in the betting, perhaps the dog with the most juice in his price is Blonde Reagan, who is trained and owned by the same connections that landed the williamhill.com Derby earlier this season.
If trainer Mark Wallis and owner Marc Currell could land a big race double it would etch themselves into greyhound racing folklore – and at 11/4 with Paddy Power, their hound looks to have a fantastic chance from trap five.
The speedy customer has bags of class and won his semi-final in dominant style. If he’s in the same mood and breaks on terms, he will be hard to stop.
Perhaps his biggest danger is strong runner Ballyard Buddy from trap four, who for our money is the most likely dog to be backed on the night. His price of 3/1 with Bet365 looks more than fair, and although he has failed to win a race in the competition has a punchy finishing kick and has the capabilities of running down any dog late on.
Other dogs to keep an eye on during the meeting are Derby runner-up Farloe Ironman, who should relish a return to Wimbledon in the williamhill.com 480 Standard and the strong staying Powerfast Pigeon in the William Hill Highest Rated Betting App 894 Marathon.
“Keep backing those winners and we’ll keep giving you free bets!” the face of Bet365, the rather brilliant Ray Winston, repeatedly says. And if planning to have a bet on Thursday’s live greyhound racing, it could be worth listening to the great man and taking your custom to Bet365.
Back any single winner at 2/1 or more on any live televised race and you can have a free bet to the same stake on the next televised race. The offer is a valuable tool for punters to take advantage of.
For example, if you are looking to take advantage of the offer, your free bet would work out like this: If you place a £50 bet on a dog at 3/1 (greater than 2/1) on the Williamhill.com Ladies race at 21:25, and it wins, Bet365 will give you a free £50 bet on the next televised race, which in this case would be the St Leger final run at 21:45.
Your free bet can be placed at any odds, but it is worth keeping in mind that if you back another dog at 2/1 or greater and that one wins as well, you will qualify for another free bet (stake not returned) in the next race.
You need to be quick to act on this type of offer though as the free bets allocated must be used completely on the following race otherwise the bet won’t be available to use.
